Me too, I got it for £3 when HMV mixed up the "Highlights of War of the Worlds" CD with this one.

Such an awesome album. Great to listen to on the way to work on dark winter mornings!

I'd imagine kids would love this too (not toddlers though, could be a little scary!)

Get on this one people! :thumbsup:
#13
If you enjoyed this, try and track down Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of Spartacus, another brilliant double album by the great man.
#14
buy the dvd .... incredibly its as good ...
#15
It is about £1 more @ The Hut (or only about 50p more after Quidco), if you want to save on your petrol costs............:whistling:

I assume you mean the DVD of the music show, and not the DVD with Tom Cruise? :)

I love this album so much. I saw the live show conducted by Jeff Wayne in Brighton last year and it was astounding. They should be announcing the 2009 tour soon and i highly recommend people get tickets early as it sold out very quickly (although I wouldn't recommend Brighton as the seats are very uncomfortable)

Yeah, the live show is stunning. A very faithful repropduction of the album.

Tara Blaise helps too, but the extras show Russell Watson to be an utter ar$e! :?

Saw this in woolies for just a fiver a couple of weeks ago :)

just got back from performing the musical version of this at the Minack Theatre... already got the album but voted hot!

[SIZE="3"]The 5.1 SACD mix on this album is to my mind, the best 5.1 mix.....ever! It's streets ahead of Pink Floyd's DSOTM SACD. As others have said, buy it, buy it, buy it! :thumbsup:[/SIZE]

So I've heard. I wish I had a SACD player :x

I guess standard 5.1 will have to do :?
#23
A real pity that SACD & DVD-A haven't really taken off as the audio quality is so much better. You don't see that many hybrid players for sale either. I love my Samsung HD-950 that does upscaling DVD. SACD/DVD-A and DIVX and yet strangely Samsung have not replaced this model with anything else that does multiple playback the same.

Ditto that, and even at £5.99 it's a steal ! :thumbsup:
#31
I take it you will get standard 5.1 on a normal dvd player ?

Same here, we went to the 2006 (big head Burton) and 2007 (Holigram Burton) I thought Russell Watson's Nathaniel was better though...

Nice find, great price for a brilliant album!


Methos.

"The chances...coming from Mars...are a million to one, he said..." First saw this round at my Uncle's house way back in the early 80's, as a kid, I was absolutely fascinated with the LP artwork. Awesome.

There isn't too much available below £100. Try this:

[SIZE="2"]I use a Pioneer DV-600. It can send an SACD signal via analogue multi-channel or HDMI. Play.com have it on sale for £109.99. It is a fine player and if you search for product reviews, you won't be dissapointed. It also plays DVD-Audio; and also plays music and films via its USB input. And, if you can get it from Richer Sounds, they'll price-beat the Play.com price so you could get it for £99.99 :thumbsup:[/SIZE]

Yup, this is one of the all time classics from my youth....... H & R added..... and bought it today after reading this thread!

The stage show (live from Wembley) can be found for £5.99 at play. Or the 2 disk version for £7.99

IT IS AWESOME. It's great to see them reproduce it (so well too). They are some of the truly great musicians (Chris Speding, Herbie Flowers etc)
