This new edition of Journey to the Centre of the Earth includes additional new material which had to be cut from the original due to time restrictions, along with additional pages of re-discovered score which had been presumed lost. The scope of the original was too vast to be accommodated in a studio, with the only option to do a live recording. Now you can celebrate the the studio debut release of Journey to the Centre of the Earth in this exclusive Classic Rock Collector's Pack, which includes:
  • Full re-recorded album Journey to the Centre of the Earth
  • 132-page magazine which forms the ultimate sleevenotes
  • Replica Programme from 1974 Journey To The Centre Of The Earth Tour
  • Exclusive interviews with Rich Wakeman, the musicians, conductor and production staff
Enjoy the recording which fused genres, broke new musical ground and floored critics.

"To be exclusively re-releasing a seminal album like 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth' is fantastic."
- Chris Ingham, Classic Rock
