It’s time for another fanpack and this time Rick Wakeman re-records his classic album “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” and adds an extra twenty minutes of music to the mix.

Here I am opening the pack and having a delve inside. Enjoy!

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this album, I thought I’d do my best job of rambling through another shambolic episode of Prog Review.

As requested, I cast my beady eye over the seventh studio album from Yes. Wakeman’s off and Moraz is in, but does the album lose or win? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!

OEG has released a new Blu-ray release of the classic Yes 1972 Rainbow footage “Yessongs”. This time around the footage has been restored from the original 16mm negatives and a surround sound remix has been done of the soundtrack. Limited to a release of 3000 units, this has to be the ultimate version of “Yessongs” and comes complete with a 60 minute interview with Steve Howe, Chris Squire and Roger Dean as well as Steve Howe’s short promotional film for his album “Beginnings”.
