Really good comp. but how could they not have Thank Christ on it, yet have the excruciatingly appalling Amazing Grace as the final track? I must be the only person who absolutely detests that song.

A prog album from Suede. And excellent it is too!

Still sounding great. Forget The Beautiful Ones and Animal Nitrate et al (decent singles though they were) this is very different and quite excellent.

Having decided I would play some of the Yes albums I dismissed down the years I went into this one with some trepidation but it is a bit better than I remember.

Third Ear Band's music from Macbeth

The newly released re-mastered and expanded edition of the soundtrack music. Curious sounding stuff!

Not recommended for Lord Rother due to the medieval stylings of the music ;)

I never had a problem with this one but have only played it a handful of times (CTTE, Relayer, GFTO and TFTO were the ones that I latched onto most) but it is jolly decent.

I remember seeing them on that tour - my brother had a spare ticket and I had ditched Yes a couple of albums before.

I was very pleasantly surprised - a very robust gig

It's a good Yes album, not on a par with their earlier work but still a good album.

I'm pretty sure I've got that Montrose album somewhere, not sure that I've ever listened to it, worth spending some time with it?

Excellent recommendation from Jimbo in the “one album” thread.

Definite thumbs up from me.

Whilst searching for the album above I also came across this one from a different band but also down the prog Avenue. Also self titled! :D

Fields - Fields

Another trio as well - this one features Graham Field (after whom the band was named), who had been in Rare Bird and Andy McCullough who appeared on King Crimson’s Lizard and later with Greenslade.

Again, not bad at all.

I just found that Fields album on Spotify, it sounds very much of its time but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

The other one was very good. Have to search Fields Psychedelic Rock Essentials.
