    Jeff Wayne did the LP story that was set to Music, not a musical in the true sense of the word, but I quit liked it. The part of the Thunderchild was great!!
    The early LPs can with a large book of pictures that could be framed,

    Personally, I think the idea is absolutely ludicrous and, I would suggest, an insult to the brave men and women who fought in that conflict.

    Indeed. I still have the double LP album, although of course I have long since bought it on CD as well.

    Serious as black smoke and heat rays. Not a musical in the true sense, though. It started life as a concept album, but there have been later stage productions. (The Richard Burton narration mentioned earlier in this thread was a reference to the musical version, too.)

    For more info, see: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Wayne also did an musical adaptation of Spartacus, by the way.

    Well remember the original book came out about 20 years before WW1, nothing like the later movies, it's a good short read.

    Same, a late 70's classic for sure. Some great music on this one, Forever Autumn and Thunderchild would be my two fav's.
    Back in 1938 in the US Orson Wells did a live broadcast of WOTW that some took as a factual event and many packed up their gear and ran for the hills. I am sure I read somewhere that a father killed his family thinking the Martians were coming over this broadcast.
    WOTW certainly has a interesting history.

    All the best
