Clive Nolan and Oliver Wakeman
Jabberwocky
Verglas Music

Based on a Lewis Carrol (Alice in Wonderland and other mind-bending stories), Clive Nolan (known for his work with Arena, Pendragon, Shadowland and Strangers On A Train) and Oiver Wakeman (son and rightful heir of Rick Wakeman of the Yes), have released a masterpiece which bridges the power and the glory of good ol' symphonic rock with the immediacy and infectious nature of the stage musical. Theatrical by nature, rocking by deliverance and magnificent in its extravagant execution, this release is bound to capture the willing audience with its exquisite performance, its intrepid concepts and humour and its star-studded musician crew - the crème della crème of the current British all-stars.

In my mind, Jabberwocky is already up there in the elitist pantheon of the rare musical rock-opera releases like Who's Tommy, Pink Floyd's The Wall, A440's Ulysses - the Greek Suite and Pretty Things' S.F. Sorrow.
