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

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!

Re: Show 60 - Bloated Prog Tunes Edition 2

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

Thanks for the words...
