Rick Wakeman – Retro. Label: President Records (4) – RWCD 38. Format: CD, Album, Unofficial Release. This album is dedicated to the memory and genius of Dr. Bob Moog, who sadly passed away during the making of this album. Originally there were only 9 tracks intended for the Retro album, but a 10th was written especially in Bob's honour and is entitled Homage To The Doctor.
Another foray into the world of vintage keyboards from our erstwhile cape wearing wizard of prog. Overall I feel this album is perched between good and excellent. Not a masterpeice but Rick succeeds in creating a perfectly enjoyable 'best of both worlds' keyboard album. Whilst I was not overly enamoured by Retro 1, I liked the idea enough to hope that Retro 2 would repeat the formula, only this time with good music to carry the pieces.

This album is a milestone in Rick& discography and I& sure that the best album by Rick is ahead. Retro" isn& a consept work (sound of the instruments is consept here) - it is a collection of prog-rock songs and instrumentals. Of course not all of the tracks are high standard classics, but we have one of the most interesting albums by Rick in the last years. By the way, did you hear his previous album - "Rick Wakeman at Lincoln Cathedral", where Rick plays authentic church organ - completly his own new music?! . . The later is sung by Jemma Wakeman and should have been a hit. You can tell Rick enjoyed making this record. It sounds like he was having a blast experimenting in the studio.
