Record label of Australian release:

The Six Wives of Henry VIII is the second studio album by English keyboardist Rick Wakeman, released in 1973. It is an instrumental progressive rock album with its concept based on his interpretations of the musical characteristics of the wives of Henry VIII. After signing with A&M as a solo artist, Wakeman decided on the album’s concept during a tour of the United States with the progressive rock band Yes.

The album was recorded throughout 1972 with musicians from Yes and Strawbs, the group Wakeman was in prior to Yes, playing on the album.
