The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is the fourth solo album from the British keyboardist Rick Wakeman, released in March 1975 on A&M Records. His third rock concept album, Wakeman based it on the legend of King Arthur and various figures and events associated with him including Guinevere, Lancelot, and Merlin.

Rick Wakeman's third solo album is among his best, as he employs his vast array of keyboards to their full extent, musically describing the characters pertaining to the days of King Arthur's reign. As one of Wakeman's most famous pieces, it is here that his astounding musicianship is laid out for all to hear, a marvelous bisque of keyboard artistry.

It reached number 2 on the UK Albums Chart and number 21 on the US Billboard 200. It was certified Gold in the US, Brazil, Japan, and Australia. The album was promoted with a world tour in 1975 that included three shows at Wembley Arena performed as an ice show, the last time it was performed in its entirety until 2016.

The making of the album and the subsequent tour have become synonymous in musical history with both blind ambition and folly. At the age of 25, the stress of the rock and roll lifestyle was taking its toll on Wakeman. After he suffered from a heart attack, Wakeman started to write the album during his recovery in hospital. It clearly wasn’t easy. Funded by a PledgeMusic kickstarter fund in February 2016, the King Arthur project quickly achieved its target in a matter of weeks, and was released in June 2016. Whereas before there were seven tracks over 45 minutes, the new version covers 2 CD’s, has twenty tracks (although some of these are the original tracks broken into smaller sections) and lasts a whopping 88 minutes.
