No Earthly Connection

by Rick Wakeman and The English Rock Ensemble

It is a great shame that, for an artist as talented and prolific as Wakeman, so few of his solo efforts are actually worth listening to. No Earthly Connection is one of these few; musically, probably his best album. Years ago, I had it on the tape (for the record, its other “side” was occupied by Criminal Record).

This Japanese paper sleeve CD looks exactly like the 1970s vinyl (although it’s way more expensive). It even has a square bit of mirror plastic that you are supposed to roll into a cylinder and look at the sleeve as shown here. Magic!
