    But these have to go there:

    Bo Hansson - Riders of Rohan
    YES - Awaken
    Procol - In Held Twas I
    -Kaleidoscope (okay, not strictly prog, but what a song!)
    Genesis - Musical Box
    -Supper's Ready
    VDGG - Plague of Lighthouse Keepers
    Curved Air - Peace of Mind

    You like this track cos it talks of killing babies and women?



    That is rather strange: just a few hours ago I was listening to the Ariel "A Strange Fantastic Dream" lp which I got just today from my friend as a possible lp trade. (I decided I do not want it, even though the coverart is great.)
    Oh yeah - did you know there is an alternate coverart (to the clown one)? Its what appears to be an astronaut head ,with it looking like goddamn Putin!

    You do realize that of your 15 picks, 4 are Australian and of those 4, Ariel,Spectrum & Tamam Shud are related? (Wot no Murteps?)

    Sorry Eddie - make that SIX Australian bands.

    (I would have corrected my mistake there and then, but for the fact that moderator-Communists are diddling all my posts and putting them on delay.)

    I like that one, and two others for different reasons. The Lost Episodes version for the overall ensemble playing, the Helsinki Concert for FZ's ecstatic guitar solo, and the Studio Tan version for George Duke's piano solo.
