I had Earth in my shortlist for this Cup. It's such a wonderfully playful track, sounds like taking a bunch of Arabian musicians to play the sirtaki at a Greek wedding, being egged on to go faster and faster.... Super track.

The Horslips-track channels the finest bit of Tull and Focus but didn't make me dance like a dervish....

Both pretty dang ponderous. I like the march B is based around, though I don't care much for what they do with it. But A is endless and meandery. At least B does its thing (as dull as it is) and moves on.

A- sounded nice and has nice group of musicians playing arabian like music, needs a belly dancer. It got a little too polka sounding in the end.

B - has the renaissance folk fair sound to it. I feel like I'm at the fair.

hm A I guess since it didn't have a singer.

One lad certainly knows his Carlsson Corkers (CCs)

Horslip rocks - a great track from a great album.

The Third Ear album is a very good album too

But I am ready to rock and feel like soem bouncebouncebounce....!

mega-ooooooofness

Sold my Third Ear Band albums over 30 years ago. Regret it now.

Still have the almost complete Horslips on vinyl. Very pleasant.

Aw, shucks - for purely nostalgic reasons:

Two pretty opposite ends of the prog-folk section. B's a tad Tull-lite. A is absolutely wonderful.

Close.

Both excellent but Horslips have more power and glory. B

Both are quite acceptable in a not-what-I-usually-listen-to-but-it’s-held-my-attention kind of way.

There’s an interesting piece about Third Ear Band in Prog magazine.

A for boldness.
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.
