Show 19 - Mixed Bag IV

Every so often I need to get back to good old prog. And in respect to the Super Bowl, a roman numeral also!

But as per usual, a few surprises.

1) Avant Garden - Dragon Feed

Off of a Progday 2002 sampler. A bit like "21st Century", but more jazzy and no vocal. One to get the blood boiling.

2) Kraan - Borgward

Same sampler, but a live cut.

3) Starcastle - Fountains

The third and final cut from the sampler.

4) Niacin - Blue Mondo

Another sampler, the Magna Carta one I had lying around. Killer bass solo by Mr. Sheehan.

5) Shine On You Crazy Diamond - David Gilmour

From his 2002 Live DVD. In great form, stripped down and ready to go!

6) Explorers Club - Time Enough

Also from the Magna Carta sampler. Starts off a bit heavy but is very diverse. Hard to follow but worth the trouble.

7) Fruitcake - Spirit of This Day

From a disc Rogor Mortis sent me. GREAT tune. (and no it's not Jam Forte )

8) Morrigan - A Night To Remember

A strange number...also off the disc by our Danish friend.

9) Chris Squire - Silently Falling

Long been a favorite, just picked it up on CD. All the excuse I need to put it on.

10) Clockwork - Secrets of Centuries

From another sampler, "Sensory #1". In the Pain of Salvation vein.

11) Bob Mould - Heartbreak A Stranger

From his fantastic CD, "Workbook". One of the ones I personally play the most.

12) Saga - On The Air

From their last studio CD "Network". Still doing their thing, and doing it to perfection.

13) Phil J - At this Point

This is Mossy's son, with a home-recorded number. Pretty good, a bit introspective and quiet. Props for Mossy and Phil! A great lead in to.....

14 - 21) Opeth - Damnation

In My time Of Need
Death Whispered A Lullaby
Hope Leaves
To Rid The Disease
Ending Credits

A great disc. I thought I lost it, it fell out when I was grabbing some others...said "Put me on the Moon". Any other CD by them I wouldn't go near. I find it humorous that these death-metal singers can sound really good when they sing. Lots of mellotron, very moody and dark. Not usually my cup of tea but it's so good. Sort of an Anekdoten Light.

22) Mike Oldfield - Taurus II

Had to end the show on an upbeat note. I heard "Tubular Bells" live at a friend's and looked for "Exposed" but couldn't find it. If it's on the Moon I whiffed. So I picked an Oldfield tune I play a LOT.

See you there!
