Rick Wakeman Live (DVD, 1998), Journey To The Center Of The Earth. Rick Wakeman Live (DVD, 1998) Like New, Journey To The Center Of The Earth. As a historical document, this DVD is worth having. But as a musical experience I much prefer the album, or even more so the recent live versions of Journey To The Centre Of The Earth. The actual quality of this film is not very good and even if it is surely very interesting to see Rick in action on all those vintage keyboards, this is not a film I have viewed more than once or twice.
The album is a live recording of his second of two concerts on 18 January 1974 at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Wakeman performs with the London Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Choir, and a group of hand-picked musicians for his rock band, which later became the English Rock Ensemble. The album earned Wakeman a nomination for an Ivor Novello Award and a Grammy Award.
