The Long Lost Classic
Finally I have found it again!! Back when I was a young lad, unable to actually buy any records of my own, I used to spend hours going through my dad's vinyl collection, which was mainly Northern Soul, but amongst them there where the occasional curiosity record and this was one of them. The Whole Record is one big Prog Rock concept album and sounds like a space opera musical, that they just forgot to actually make, with vocals from a huge range of performers from Ben E King, Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi and Dave Cousins of the Strawbs, to name a few. As the Record plays, it tells the story of a traveling band in the future and the various places they visit and the people they meet, such as the "Space Commando" and the "Universal Zoo". But the true beauty being that, the songs stand alone just aswell especially the epic finale of "Keeper Keep Us" featuring vocal from Meat Loaf!! I loved this record when I was a kid and adore it now. It's time to revive a lost classic!!
