No Earthy Connection - Rick Wakeman

No Earthly Connection – reversed

I must have listened to Rick Wakeman’s No Earthly Connection album dozens of times since I bought it many years ago.

You’ll notice the distorted looking image of the album cover below…a marketing gimmick that required a silver tube so the image could be seen in its reflection. Each album came with a flexible sheet of mirrored plastic that you could roll into a tube.

The album itself wasn’t too well received when it was released… but the reason for this posting is to understand what the men’s voices were saying during a section of the album by playing it in reverse. Easy to do nowadays with almost any audio production app.

So take a listen, and see what you think.
