Jeff Wayne's 'War of the Worlds'

Whose?, you may ask:

In 1978, Jeff Wayne (an unknown American record producer) put together a roster of musicians like Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues, David Essex, and Phil Lynott to record a musical version of the H. G. Wells story, with Richard Burton narrating.

A bit difficult to get your head round - until you listen to it. One of the finest examples of progressive rock & a concept album, done right.

Fantastic album back then and still great music and performance.
We are going to see them next year in Amsterdam.
I'm looking forward to it.
