Show 60 - Bloated Prog Tunes Edition 2
 
Oh yes, the very staple of progressive music, the long song. Not only will you enjoy the selections, you'll be able to go to the bathroom without missing anything:notsure:

Caravan - Nine Feet Underground 22:40

A classic. I hope they did this in one take, for David Sinclair's fingers' sake.

Steve Unruh - Song To the Sky 22:27

Calls himself "progressive folk". I call him freaking good. A completely solo effort. This is the only song I've heard by him, gotta fix that.

Focus - Hamburger Concerto 20:19

Along with "Birth" and "Hocus Pocus", the holy trinity of Focus songs.

Jethro Tull - -A Passion Play 45:11

I've played the outtakes from this about a year ago (Chateau D'Isaster tapes), now we'll hear all of it. The two parts on the Moon add up to about 4 minutes shy of the full record. I have a feeling "The Hare Who Lost Is Spectacles" may not be on the Moon. I know it's not on Part One. So we'll hear it here. Gather the kids!
..
Keith Jarrett - The Koln Concert Part II 14:54

A relatively short tune, something of a change of pace. All piano.

Lark's Tongues In Aspic Parts I-IV 37:19

Why not?

Salem Hill - The Future Me 18:53

Pure magic.


Bloated music, in celebration of your Thanksgiving meals!

Hi Rick,
Thanks for the Tull. The reference to the quote you used prior to 'A Passion Play' dealt with the poor female victim's adventures in the afterlife; first a nasty little reference to necrophelia; then her 'geography revision' refers to her new level of existence. Not a very fun way to start another life, but there is doubtless a point Ian was trying to make about life as we know it. Troubling stuff, but fascinating nonetheless.
Thanks for all the great tunes; keep up the great work.

That illustrates how little I can decipher from lyrics. Most meaning goes right over my head...probably why I can listen to Sabbath and Neal Morse back to back:dunno:

Thanks for the words...:cool:
