War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne. (Progressive Rock)

Would normally spend Good Friday listening to the Jesus Christ Super Star album. Twenty/twenty Good Friday I listened to Jeff Wayne’s 1978 original War of the Worlds.

This original version included Richard Burton as narrator (journalist). Also Justin Hayward, David Essex (artillery man), Phil Lynott (Parson Nathanial) Julie Covington (Beth).

Give it a go if you don’t know it. I was blown away!
