Review by SouthSideoftheSky
3 stars Database

The Theme From Lytton's Diary is a double A-sided 7" single released in 1985 containing two non-album tracks that Rick Wakeman recorded for the TV programme Lytton's Diary. I have never seen the series, but it ran for two seasons in the mid-1980's. To my knowledge these rare tracks have never been released on CD, but both of them can be listened to on YouTube.

The first track, The Theme From Lytton's Diary, is an up-tempo instrumental in Wakeman's characteristic style. The other track, Database, also an instrumental, slows things down a little bit, but is of equally high standard. Both tracks compare very favourably to the music that appeared on Wakeman's full-length albums from around the same time. It is unclear which other musicians were involved in the recordings, but there are drums and bass backing up Wakeman's keyboards. My guess is that Tony Fernandez was involved.

For fans of Wakeman, these tracks are well worth seeking out.
