Open Culture: Hear Rick Wakeman's Musical Adaptation of Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth, "One of Prog Rock's Crowning Achievements".

This is one of those albums I'd look at in the record bin at the U-Store, and try to decide whether it was worth my hard-earned $. I mean, Rick Wakeman! Journey to the Center of the Earth! Budgets for kids weren't what they are today. I never did. I bought the latest Elton John instead.

Later: Listening to it now, it's sort of like Peter and the Wolf for hippies.
