Kann es sein, dass diese wunderbare Neuaufnahme (ich bin ja nun
wahrlich kein Fan von Neuaufnahmen, aber die hier: wow!) an Euch
ohne Notiz vor√ľbergegangen ist? Oder habe ich den Thread nicht gefunden?
Ich bin jedenfalls begeistert. Das Original ist ja, obgleich beseelt, allein
von der Aufnahmequalit√§t doch etwas weit entfernt vom audiophilen Genuss.

Wakeman presumed that the original conductor's score was lost when his record company A & M collapsed in the early 1980s. However, a "huge cardboard packing case" arrived at his house in 2008 which stayed in his garage for "about five months" before he found the score at the bottom which was damaged by water. A year was spent digitising and forming the complete score with conductor Guy Protheroe. Wakeman re-recorded the album with an orchestra, choir, and members of his English Rock Ensemble band as a studio album, incorporating 20 minutes that was previously cut. As Hemmings died in 2003, the narration is voiced by actor Peter Egan. Released on 20 November 2012, the new album is packaged with a one-off magazine published by Classic Rock and a copy of the 1974 Royal Festival Hall concert program.
