PLEASE NOTE: As this item may have been obtained overseas, there is a possibility that the tape may have become loose from the spool in transit.
If you choose our service option, we would check this and correct the issue for you.
If you purchase directly and do not check the tape inside before playback, you will risk damaging the tape and no refund will be available.

All 8 tracks are pre-loved (used) and are sold “as is”.

We do offer a “service cart” option or you can add additional spare parts if you wish to service the cart yourself.

It is highly recommended that all 8 tracks have replacement pads, a new foil splice and internal cleaning done before use.

The foam pads inside are very old (over 40 years) and would have deteriorated, even if the cart is sealed and has never been used.

The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Rick Wakeman is a 1972 instrumental concept album that tells the story of the six wives of King Henry VIII. The album is a showcase for Wakeman’s virtuoso keyboard skills, and it features a wide range of musical styles, including progressive rock, folk, classical, and even jazz.

Wakeman uses his keyboards to create a vivid and evocative portrait of each of Henry’s wives. For example, the song “Catherine of Aragon” is a majestic and stately piece that captures the grandeur of Catherine’s court. The song “Anne Boleyn” is a more lively and playful piece that reflects Anne’s youthful exuberance. And the song “Catherine Howard” is a dark and dramatic piece that reflects the tragic end of Catherine’s life.

The Six Wives of Henry VIII is a truly epic album. It is a challenging and rewarding listen, and it is one of the finest examples of instrumental progressive rock ever recorded.
