I played it this morning.

I was slightly disappointed and underwhelmed.

There were only one maybe two tracks that grabbed me the rest was quite bland.

One has to ask why it was shelved in the first place although 5 tracks were reworked and appeared elsewhere although I didn't instantly recognise them.

That said, I will give it another two or three listens and I am quite eager to do so

Oh, it's pleasant enough C. and Harvest Gold and a couple of the others are just fine but it has never made me want to sit up and really listen, unlike After The Goldrush and a number of his other albums - it's fine for background music. Often wonder if the no. 1 single hadn't been so successful before the album was released, if it would have done as well. He produced many better albums, this is not one I play often - the front picture on the cover was pretty uninspiring as well.

I love this album. I have owned A Love Supreme (supposed to be his best) for years but i much prefer GS.

I love Yes, but was it necessary to dress as second rate REO Speedwagon? I know, 80's fashion and all that, but Steve Howe would never be poster material in a million years

I'm in agreement with you, indeed prefer both Favourite Things and Giant Steps to A Love Supreme.

These are okay, my favourite is Broken Barricades - much leaner/meaner sound.

A great later version from 2010 of Master Builder - pb and I saw them on this tour




Oily Way etc (2014) - we saw them on this tour too

Didier and Howlett back in the fold (sax/flute and bass rest.)



Daevid sadly missed

Clearly a lot of the kit used dates back to the original recording from the 70s. That's a lot of stuff to store. The lad must have a large garage

Sit back and enjoy.

Joyful

Dutch heavy neo prog of the highest order. Beginning to love this album.

Knight Area - D-Day

Image

Freedom to Glide - Seed

Another war theme album, and another band that grow on me every time I hear them.

Swedish heavy prog - read some strong reviews of this but it hasn’t really appealed to me.

Vulkan - Technatura

Image

Before IQ there was The Lens with Holmes, Nicholls and Orford although they never released an album at the time and disbanded in 1981 before forming the aforementioned and much loved IQ.

The “project” was resurrected in 2010 by Holmes and Orford releasing this mainly instrumental album which I enjoyed on 1st play this week.

Image

Speaking of Martin Orford, this is back on Spotify - featuring Big Big Train’s David Longdon on vocals. You can certainly tell it’s him but his voice has really taken on more depth in recent years with BBT. Very nice album.

Martin Orford - The Old Road
