Gates of Babylon  performed by Rainbow  1978
Recommended by Mike [profile]

Sheer joy to listen to - a perfect example of the extended melodic heavy rock song. Superb control of tension and release. Super arrangement and guitar playing. Currently very under-valued...

from Long live rock 'n' roll, available on CD (Polydor)



  10 May 04 ·Issie: A good choice!
  19 May 04 ·anotherdodgybassplayer: Fantastic choice, always been my favourite. Loved it since I was 14. (now 39). The instrumental section is just as good as it gets.
In Search of England  performed by Barclay James Harvest  1978
Recommended by Mike [profile]

One of the most appealing of the songs by Woolly Wolstenholme, the band's keyboard player until he left in 1979, and who sadly committed suicide on 13 December 2010.

Woolly's songs, the best-known of which are examples of the often grandiose style which has since become known as "symphonic prog", always stood out from those of his band-mates for their harmonic interest and textural subtlety.

from XII (Polydor)


Sisters of Remindum  performed by Anthony Phillips  1978
Recommended by Mike [profile]

Too good prog rock instrumental. Banksian keyboards.

from Sides, available on CD


Bleak House  performed by Anthony Phillips  1978
Recommended by Mike [profile]

Subtle harmonic and textural touches lift this well above the ordinarily beautiful. It's varied and lasts nearly 6 minutes, building gradually, and keeps getting better until just before the end. You can tell at times that he's listened to "Ripples" and some of the good bits on "Wind and Wuthering", but this has its own space. The vocal is by a former Genesis roadie.

from Sides, available on CD
