While he was still with Strawbs, Rick started session work that in 1971 alone included “Morning Has Broken” for Cat Stevens, “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” for T. Rex, three tracks on Elton John’s Tumbleweed Connection, and for David Bowie: “Changes”, “Life on Mars?”, “Oh! You Pretty Things”, and a track recorded for Hunky Dory but not released until Ziggy Stardust, “It Ain’t Easy”.

In July 1971, David asked Rick to join his band full-time – on the same day that Chris Squire asked him to join Yes. Feeling (correctly, obviously) that Yes offered him more options as both a composer and performer, his very first session with the band in August yielded the beginnings of “Heart of the Sunrise” and “Roundabout”. Not a bad start!

Along the way, he wound up on the cover of Melody Maker twice in 1971 (both as a member of Strawbs and of Yes), and before year’s end, also signed a 5-album deal as a solo performer – all combining to make Rick Wakeman a major contributor to The Sounds of 1971!
