    #30 Nope.
    It's more than "close enough", Wallace - "Roller Coaster Holiday" is the extended version of "New World's Fair".

    # 30 - Yep - and it's your own fault - the only clue you provided was "30/ Atlantis (again, I'm thinking of two lps)" - "Atlantis Live 1975" is a double album coupled with the word "Atlantis" - what you were or were not "thinking" is irrelevant without specificity.

    The word "Atlantis" alone does not count in this game.

    Atlantis "Live" ('75) is not a 2lp concept on the mythological city.

    Rock 'N' Roll Preacher
    New York City
    Mr. Bigshot
    Mainline Florida

    Godfather

    Going To The Country
    Rock Me Baby......... I don't believe there is a single track on this 2lp set that is on topic. (Even so, the whole lp throughout has to be the concept.)

    Wow!

    You are good.

    "Tarka" is not one that most would know, but you were correct.

    32/ is John Mills Cockell - A Third Testament instrumental lp on William Blake, Augustine,Bonhoeffer,Tolstoy and Kierkagaard

    33/ The Deacon was thinking of David Bedford , but "Odyssey - The Greatest Tale" - VA is an even better one since its a 2 or 3 cd set)

    34/ I don't know this Huis or Vecktor K. Also I was not thinking of FM - but that's a good submission

    36/ you are correct, but I had hesitations on "Incantations" because its not just Keats that Oldfield covers but also Hiawatha and one other which I forget now

    38/ I was thinking Bo Hansson- El-Ahirah. (Don't know this Half Past four)

    39/ good on you! Difficult but you got it - are you a ProgMasterWoman by any chance?

    40/ I don't know this Protest the Hero band. I was going with Ayeron.

    42/ Bakery .....and Offenbach - .....St Chrone (took me ages to find this lp)

    46/ YES "Close to the Edge

    65/ Tarot (I'm thinking of 3 lps)

    66/ Pratchett

    67/ Eric von Daniken (2 lps)

    68/Vikings concept lp

    Half is prog (so I can include it in this thread).
    The other half is a genre that I'm not revealing.(But its easy enough to figure out.)
    Opinion is divided on the issue ,but some heads see this 70s lp as being the first concept lp in this genre, a full year before anything else.

    And , no, its not "Lucky Leif and the Long Ships"

    69/ massacre of Lakota indians

    70/ American Civil War

    # 63 is Manfred Mann's "The Good Earth"

    # 64 is John G. Perry's "Seabird"

    The rest will have to wait as I'm rather pressed for time - nice work though -


    Oh, and here's a photo of # 57

    # 61 is Yuka & Chronoship - "Ship" CORRECT

    # 62 is "Jeanne d'Arc" by Thy Majestie ELOY - VISION,SWORD & PYRE

    # 63 is Manfred Mann's "The Good Earth" WRONG

    # 64 is John G. Perry's "Seabird" WRONG (the one I'm thinking of is way more obscure)

    # 65 is a.) Walter Wegmüller - "Tarot" (2 lps) b.) Ohhms - "The Fool" or c) "Reflections" by Tarot

    WEGMULLER IS CORRECT (this is one of the rarest lps in my collection) . I dont know Ohms or Tarot . The other two were: MIKE BATT - TAROT SUITE AND.....err...I forget.

    # 66 is Steeleye Span’s Wintersmith IT fits ,but I was thinking GREENSLADE -FROM THE DISCWORLD

    # 67 is a.) Absolute Elsewhere - "In Search of Ancient Gods" and Robert Connolly - "Plateau"
    CORRECT (impressed that you know Connolly lp!)

    # 68 is Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock WRONG (by the way, Saga de Ragnar is one BORING cd. The Deacon never warmed to this shoite.)

    # 69 is Gila - "Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee" CORRECT

    # 70 is "The Monitor" by Titus Andronicus WRONG BLACKWOOD APOLOGY - HOUSE OF LEATHER

    I can't possibly "guess" what is or isn't in your head - as long as the answers are plausible responses to the questions then they can't be "wrong" just because you had something else in mind - every "wrong" answer is the result of your "thinking" of something else.

    My answers can only be as good as the clues in your questions which quite frankly are incomprehensible at best and incoherent at worst.

    And stating that # 63 is wrong is reason enough for me to legitimately question your credibility -

    "Early owners of each copy of The Good Earth were entitled to rights over 1 square foot of the earth situated at Llanerchyrfa in the County of Brecon, in Wales. The inner sleeve included a coupon that had to be sent for registration. This was part of the promotion activities linked to the album that had ecological inspirations. There was no swindle and thousands of fans were registered. Registration could be done on or before 31 December 1975."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Go...th_Band_album)


    I'm "thinking" that it's time for me to check out - I've got nothing more to prove here...

    Au revoir, mes amis...

    birth and death of a world


    (I know that is difficult, so here to make it easier: VERY pretentious album title. Expensive package
