Rick Wakeman - 1971 - Piano Vibrations

Wakeman became an active session musician. In June 1969, he played Mellotron on David Bowie's single "Space Oddity" for a session fee of £9. He went on to play piano for Bowie's "Life on Mars?", "Changes" and "Oh! You Pretty Things" in April 1971 and "Absolute Beginners" in 1985. He also played the piano intro on the Cat Stevens' hit "Morning Has Broken". In 1971 he acquired an early Minimoog synthesiser, purchasing it at half price from actor Jack Wild who believed that it was defective because it only played one note at a time. Piano Vibrations, though publicited in its re-release as the first studio album by English progressive rock keyboardist Rick Wakeman, it's not considered a Wakeman's album. He just played as a session musician and didn't compose any of the tracks. The album was released in 1971 on Polydor, after Wakeman had signed on to A&M Records. The album developed from Wakeman's time as a session musician. A&M Records had signed Wakeman on as the Strawbs' keyboardist at the time of the release. Piano Vibrations, when it has been reviewed, has been described as "slightly cheesy", especially in light of Wakeman's later involvement in progressive rock.
