This is a CD release of Wakeman's show on April 27, 1976 for the BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test, a live music television program. The sound quality is below par, seemingly it's in mono. The show itself is nothing spectacular. Wakeman is good, but the brass is awkward and the vocals are downright embarassing. It brought back fond memories of Rick playing on the Test with the English Rock Ensemble. He was exceptional at the time and still is. One average album for anyone's collection and a good introduction to Rick's music.
