Review of The Six Wives of Henry VIII submitted on 25th October 2003
I loved every inch of this 12 inches of vinyl when I bought the original LP back in '73. I cannot understand why it was not well received at the time. This is an awesome classic and for me is still Rick's finest hour. It is timeless and for me listening to it a few times again recently it still sounds every bit as interesting and exciting as when I first heard it 30 years ago. Some of Rick's 80's music sounds dated now but not this. I just wish Henry VIII had married more wives! If divorce and marriage inspire him like this maybe Rick should consider an "Elizabeth Taylor" project.
