RICK WAKEMAN Out There|
DVD (Classic Pictures 2004)
Caped crusader's musical journey...
The DVD release of last year's prog rock album based on the search for the
origins of music. Now the `Out There' album is a superb slice of modern prog
rock and features the vocal talents of Damian Wilson (who left just before
last year's UK tour), who is featured on the videos on this DVD.
Each track takes a space theme with NASA footage cleverly worked into band studio
footage (including Rick Wakeman in full flowing cape mode on opener `Out
There'!). The spacecraft featured on the cover and in the videos is actually
made-up of musical instruments and speakers to keep the origins of music
There is also an in depth interview with the main man himself where he
discusses the album's concept and details. Being Rick Wakeman it is an
enjoyable interview that will stand up to repeated plays. There is also some
live footage from last year's UK tour, with of course Ashley Holt on vocals
and backstage joking about.

** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
