Black Knights at the Court of Ferdinand 4th - Rick Wakeman, CD
Digitally remastered edition. On this extraordinary 1989 album, legendary keyboard player teamed up with an Italian singer named Mario Fasciano. Recorded on the Isle of Man, the album contains eight Neapolitan songs and it is the result of a prodigious concurrence of a number of talented artists that somehow reached a propitious zenith of creativity here, on this album. Exotic, Mediterranean, evocative, timeless, classic and classical, and wonderful are a few of the adjectives used to describe this exciting release. Rick's signature piano playing and Mario's warm Jon Anderson-like voice weave a web of medieval fantasy. This is an unjustly overlooked record which fans of Rick Wakeman are certainly sure to enjoy.
