No Earthly Connection is the sixth studio album by English Keyboardist and songwriter Rick Wakeman, originally released in May 1976 via A&M Records.

This album is often overlooked when talking about Rick Wakeman’s finest solo works. Everybody rightly praises JourneyThe Six Wives and Myths And Legends. As a result, No Earthly Connection tends to be unfairly regarded as living in their shadow. In reality, it’s at least as strong, and at times more impressive than that trio.

After dealing with historic situations both factual and fictional on his previous records, this time Wakeman entered the realm of the metaphysical. And while this is pretentious, what it did was free him musically.

Whereas previously The Caped Crusader was capturing the essence of well-known stories – acting as a soundtrack – here he could take flight, going in any musical direction. So you hear classical, folk, funk, metal and jazz touches throughout, sparked by an almost spontaneous desire to celebrate the human mind.

Check out the tracks: “The Spaceman”; “The Realisation”; “The Prisoner” and “The Lost Cycle”. 

This reissued LP with reproduced original artwork and digital download code is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
