Repressing. The Teenage Opera, one of the legendary long lost projects of the 60's, comes to life for the first time in as near a form to the original concept as possible - as it would have been had EMI not pulled the plug back in 1968. Producer Mark Wirtz began work on the Teenage Opera story idea in 1966 when contracted to EMI, and teamed up with a group of musicians including Steve Howe and Keith West plus engineer Geoff Emerick. After a few unsuccessful singles, his label pulled the plug on the project. Wirtz continued to use his musical ideas and a number of Teenage Opera characters and themes appeared over the years on a variety of singles by different bands or as solo releases. It is by using these singles and tracks which Mark Wirtz has collected together that we are at last able to present for the first time, after 30 years, a Teenage Opera. There are 24 tracks - most never reissued on any format prior to the original pressing of this CD, six previously unreleased. With the full cooperation of Wirtz, the Opera is presented as a Film Soundtrack and includes incidental music linking the tracks together, taken from Wirtz's own library of original demos.
