Rick Wakeman The Real Lisztomania Yes The Who CD
A remastered edition of Rick Wakeman’s intended score for Ken Russell’s truly bizarre 1975 cult film Lisztomania.
 
Originally turned down by A&M Records, Rick’s idea was to produce a truly unique soundtrack. The Real Lisztomania uses Wakeman’s score as part of a story with intermittent narration (spoken by Paul Nicholas).
 
Guest vocalists include The Who’s Roger Daltrey (on four pieces), Paul Nicholas and Linda Lewis. 
 
A very different soundtrack to any produced in the world of film music, The Real Lisztomania is by turns grand, pretty and highly amusing.
 
CD in jewel case.
