Steve Hackett - Narnia
25 de abril 2014
Esta es una de esas colaboraciones musicales que se dan solamente una vez en la vida. Steve Hackett, ex guitarrista de Genesis, con Steve Walsh, cantante de Kansas. "Narnia" aparece en el disco Please Don't Ask, que salió en 1978. Fue el primer proyecto de Hackett tras su salida de Genesis el año anterior.
Esto es lo que dice la Wikipedia sobre la canción:
"Narnia" is based on the children's book "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis. Singer Steve Walsh and drummer Phil Ehart of the American rock band Kansas appear on the song. According to Hackett in the liner notes of the 2005 re-release, "Narnia" had been considered as a possible single. "Unfortunately," Hackett stated, "we weren't allowed to release the version featuring Steve on vocals as his record company objected. No-one at Charisma felt the alternative version [a version with vocalist John Perry and a bonus track on the 2005 remaster] was strong enough to release as a single without Steve's contribution."
