A mix of just a few of my favourite rock songs from the 60’s and the 70’s.
Growing up in the 70’s in South Africa, I listened to the radio all the time (we only got TV in about 1976!) .
This mix, compiled mostly from old vinyl singles, features some of the songs I heard on the radio between 1973 and 1978. Most of them are obscure, and didn’t chart, but I remember them all with great fondness.

This is part of series called “First Five” which features tracks from an artist’s first five albums. I usually exclude the big hits and /or popular songs, but not always. Also I prefer not to include live albums or compilations, but sometimes I do.
Rick Wakeman albums featured in this mix:
The Six Wives of Henry VIII 
Journey to the Centre of the Earth 
The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table 
Lizstomania  soundtrack
No Earthly Connection 
Disclaimer: Piano Vibrations, an album of cover versions, released in 1971, is not considered a Wakeman album, even by himself, so I have not included it here.
A pretty random mix of tunes from 1988 to 2005 inspired by opening song “Life Floats By” by The Jayhawks and the closer “I’ve Changed” by The Josh Joplin Group. The rest just seemed to flow.
