Inspired by Space Exploration and dedicated to the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia, who lost their lives in the Columbia Space Shuttle disaster, "Out There” was one of Rick’s most "progressive” albums, featuring expansive pieces and the contributions of excellent musicians Damian Wilson (vocals), Ant Glynne (guitars), Lee Pomeroy (Bass) and Tony Fernandez (drums).

White Rock II. progressive instrumental

Enlarge this picture! In 1976 Rick Wakeman (Yes) was asked to compose the music for the official film for the Winter Olimpics (Innsbruck) of the same year. The soundtrack album, WHITE ROCK, was a huge best seller reaching top 10 in the album charts. This album is a must for all prog. fans but unfortunately not available on any format today. In 1997, Rick was contacted by Konrad Bartelski at Trans World International who was involved in the reediting of four official Winter Olympic games films for television transmission later that year. One of them was the 1976 Winter Olympics from Innsbruck. After evaluating the scores from the remaining three films, Konrad felt that as they were being edited anyway, this was a perfect opportunity to have them re-scored, and so after lengthy discussion with Rick, new scores were produced for the edited films and the Reflections of Winter programmes were born. The response to the music was so positive that Rick set about the task of rearranging and recording the various themes from Reflections of Winter, just as he had done back in 1976 with the Innsbruck film, and produced seven tracks of outstanding quality well worthy of the title of WHITE ROCK II.

Softsword - King John and the Magna Charter progressive

Enlarge this picture! Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the official remastered edition of "Softsword”, the album inspired by the life of the English King John and the story of the Magna Carta, recorded in 1991.

The album came to life following a commission Rick received to compose music for the finale of the 1991 Dickens Festival at Rochester on Medway in Kent. Rick subsequently adapted the themes he had written for this event and developed them into songs and instrumental pieces. The resulting album featured guest musicians Chrissie Hammond (Vocals), David Paton (Guitars and Bass) and Annabel Blakeney (Gemshorn) and took its title from the nickname given to King John by medieval English Barons.

Unavailable for some years, "Softsword – King John & the Magna Carta” has been newly re-mastered and features an illustrated booklet with a new sleeve design and continues the series of official RICK WAKEMAN releases on Esoteric Recordings.
