More Info:

Only 1 original copy exists of this heavy melodic progressive concept LP valued in excess of £10,000. Fresh from the incredible success of Rick Wakeman's early concept LPs (he drummed with Wakeman's band) Barney and his ex-bandmates Warhorse made this sensational lost heavy prog lp as a promo acetate to get an official release, Barney wrote all the songs and sings. Musically complex, it begins with a spoken intro and tells the tale of Koneg Son Of Odin, as he quests to find meaning and death in battle. Keyboards and guitar interweave, with further spoken interludes, and culminating in an epic prog workout featuring fluid soloing electric leads as Koneg dies on the battlefield and is taken by Valkyries to Valhalla. The original gold hand made cover is reproduced as a gatefold with sleevenotes by the actual Rick Wakeman. Barney James, an ex British Army Commando, and ex Gracious, Legend, and Warhorse, and actor in The Sweeney and Derek Jarman's Jubilee is also now in Valhalla, and his lost lp is here Issued for the first time with the full permission of his two daughters.
