Forever Autumn


More years ago than I care to remember, Jeff Wayne published a rock operatic version of H. G. Wells’ “War Of The Worlds”.  Most of the album is unforgettable except for the narration by  Sir Richard Burton and the song “Forever Autumn” performed by Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues.

This version comes from 2005 and, while Hayward’s voice has lost some of its range, it still comes across as a powerful lament for a lost love.
