What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

LINK: Rick Wakeman on re-recording of seminal prog album

BBC 6 Music's Matt Everitt speaks to Rick Wakeman about the release of his re-recorded 1974 prog masterpiece, Journey to the Centre of the Earth. 

The album, based on a Jules Verne novel, was one of the biggest albums of the 1970s. 

The re-recorded version includes 20 minutes of new material cut from the original, as well as music unearthed from the original score that had long been thought lost.

NOTE: The BBC being the BBC, however, we can't embed the sound file, so you will, I am afraid, just have to follow this link.
