Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds

Christmas 1978, and without a lot of money, my parents decided that, in order to able to afford nice presents for their three young sons, they would buy this record for themselves as their joint and only present. It certainly received a lot of play over the years from all of us but despite the cover and booklet now looking worse for wear, the vinyl itself is immaculate.
Mum passed away in 2015 and Dad doesn’t really listen to records so I have very gladly inherited it. It’s not only my oldest record and still so enjoyable to listen to but also one of my most precious because it’s a reminder of my parents’ love and sacrifice.
