Well, okay. I saw Stacastle supporting Jethro Tull in Canada in 1976 and met them unexpectedly in a burger bar after the show. I thought they were generally perceived to be a Yes-lite joke these days. I did enjoy their performance though as I was a 13 year old neophyte prog goon at the time and hadn't heard much by the real Yes.

It's a robust album- could have done with more bass in the mix but quite enjoyable. These days I prefer Fountains Of Light and Citadel a bit more though.

I think this one has better tunes than Fountains Of Light.

It was a request that was put on the list a couple of years ago by somebody - I can't recall who.

Okay, they are a Yes-clone but a good one and I played the album last week to see if it warranted inclusion and the answer was a definite yes (groan)

I really enjoyed listening to it again

I am here.

greetings, one and all.

time for me to get transported back to a time when i had albums all over the floor, and i was abounding in chemical enhancements.

time has changed me so.

not that i've always been an arthuriana freak.

A flashback for me to. I haven't heard this in I don't know how many years but I am transported back to that Starcastle/Tull gig in 1976.
