Note:Some sources suggest that CHC 41 did not exist, and some insist that it was an Atomic Rooster LP.However, I have a UK release sheet from a supplier used by a friend's import/export company at the time, and this release sheet indicates the above Rick Wakeman title as CHC 41. Believe who you will until someone comes up with a copy!!1984
