Notes: (***) Yet another compilation of material from Wakeman's more recent catalogue, the original 3-disc version of My Inspiration included every track from The Official Bootleg (bar Adam Wakeman's one piece) and White Rock II. The 3-disc edition was withdrawn from circulation and replaced by a 2-disc version, which matches the contents of discs one and two listed above. The combination of tracks makes for a surprisingly effective collection, but hardly essential to any but the most
devoted collectors. (Ray Riethmeier, 19 Dec 02)
