Another one that got a mention that I don’t think I’ve played before.

Decent.

I had honestly never heard of them.


The first 2 albums are on a recent double CD, plus they reformed and made Montpellier which is a bit patchy and also there’s a double live CD. Sadly a couple of them passed away.
There is some Whistle Test footage iirc.

Did I mention it? It’s an obvious Yes clone of course. They also recorded Fluid Druid which I haven’t heard.

Have you heard Fruupp’s Modern Masquerades? I think you’d like it.

I don't know where to bung this question. Too insignificant for a new topic and since all the proggers gather here this is probably the easiest way. Quick question out of curiosity: I have JT's Stand Up album that's seldom been played. Vinyl is in excellent shape and what's more: the artwork is still in perfect working order, i.e. Ian and the lads still stand up without any pains or bruises. Whaddaya reckon a collector would pay for it?

Ha! Played the other 3 Fruupp albums yesterday as it happens, straight after Druid (But not MM) - I did play Fluid Druid as well yesterday.

(Most of the music I play these days is at work, so the attention level can be somewhat patchy, depending on the complexity of whichever spreadsheet I am working on at the time, or whether colleagues decide to bother me.)

Pink 'Eye' label? - [white capital 'I']

Catalogue number?

Quality of vinyl?

Damn good album. Almost like Caravan but sometimes better, if that makes sense. Average vocals though.

Steve Hillage. A fantastic album

Also Pip Pyle on tubs - Gong, Hatfield and the North and National Health

and Dave Stewart - keyboards - Egg, Hatfield and the North, National Health, and Bruford.

If it's a 1st pressing, gatefold sleeve pop-up inside, pink label/black & orange ‘circle’ logo in mint (unplayed) condition £225 approx. Anything other than 1st pressing with those credentials - not much.

Thanks for the unfortunately underwhelming advice on Stand Up. Vinyl is in excellent condition. But it certainly is no first pressing. It has the Palm Label. I'll get back to work.

Hillage is an awful singer. Great guitarist, but vocally.... Same with Steve Howe

That was the trouble with so many prog groups, great musicians but many of them didn't have a decent vocalist, the ones that did were successful pretty much. Were Crimson ever as successful without Greg Lake?

My thoughts exactly. A distinctive vocalist in prog is essential. Anderson (Jon and Ian), Gabriel and Hammill. After that, I'm struggling

I would enjoy playing that Rob.

As you say a good intro.

It's a shame (I think) that a lot of the selections are predictable but then again that is why it would make a good intro to prog(!)

Camel- always something from bloody Snow Goose...!
