This is an easy one, because we haven't had a real trivia for a long time. Rick Wakeman did the vocals for an album. What is the name of the album and the years of recording and release?

Rick did the vocals for a song that was recorded for 'Tormato', but not included.
Not singing as such, just a narrated satirical piece about British politics at the time.

Do you mean one of his own albums, or a guest appearance? I've got the album Rock 'n' Roll Prophet 1982 (cause I liked the song Do You Believe in Fairies, well I was young) and I know Wakeman did vocals on that album. They're really bad. He also did some stuff with a pianist called Tony Ashton and I think he sung here too. The two of them fronted a TV show in which they played and showcased other acts. I think it was a vehicle for Rick to have a few drinks - it was back in his glory days.

Sorry Renato, I lost it there,you are right,it ISN'T on Tormato......
BTW did you know that Rick was actually doing an impression of a well known UK politician on Money? Possibly this song and Don't Kill The Whale were Yes's attempts at political comment? Before Jon went back up the mountain<img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

This question has had me thinking for weeks, and no one has posted a reply, so I've been racking my brain.I know 'Money' was recorded at the Tormarto sessions,so I took a shot.Everyone here is so knowledgeable, I really enjoy the Trivia section.<img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.Thanks guys and gals of Yestalk.
