The Revealing . . .

I've though about this topic for almost a year now, when I swung over to Ed's AH site, to post on a topic called "reveal yourself." The idea was just to expand on some personal elements of your life, as much as you felt comfortable with, to give the other respondents some concept of who was on the o...

Chris Squire Experience, Live San Diego . . .

I think I've got a line on this, but we'll see. I'll trade CDs or cassettes for obscure 70's live stuff . . . <img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

I wouldn't suppose the name Dave Roe meant anything?

I've searched for quite some time, and have never learned a thing about the illustrator of "Olias." The original LP jacket was stunning, this archaic book you broke open into a evolutionary journey . . . I'd just love to see some of his stuff on the web, and know what else he's done . . .<img src=pi...

Lotsa vinyl, if someone wants it . . .

SH Beginings, JA City of Angels, RW Ciminal Record . . . Slightly water damaged--but I can get the originals, if someone wants 'em. Also remastered TFTO, Drama, others. You: price, Me, postage. Is anyone looking for something in particular . . . I stepped on KTA I, disc one the other night, so I'd b...

My venue, my refreshments, my plans . . .

Aire Crown, Chicago. Drinks nearby, White Russians and brownies, twelve rows back, but on the right side. I want to interview some folks, both before and after the show, so my plans involve a pen and notebook. I'll run off a few cards with the Yestalk address to a few amianable folks I meet, and get...

Where to gather before the show . . .

Last year, before the Masterworks show, some of us met in St. Louis, to hoist a few pre-concert pints, and wax nostalgic. But 08.08.01, I'll be in Chicago, Terra Incognito for me. I'd like to hook up with some more fans, somewhere close to Arie Crown. I'll bring some memorabilia, wear a big hat, and...

Chicago, 08.08.01--Wanna go?

<font color=green>I had planned on going with my roommate, but he's been a jerk lately, so maybe I could hook up with another Missouri fan with wheels who'd like a ticket. If not, I may just sell them both at face value, so drop a line if you're interested in either proposal. I guess fans will be me...

In The Presence Of live MP3

I actually looked in on Yeshoo forum today, and found this site with a snippet of VERY recent music -- http://www.hewchuck.com/amytrolls.shtml . I've only listened to it once, but it's very intriguing. I know some would want a sneak peek at the new music as soon as possible, so . . . Wouldn't it be ...

Not a full review, just a few notes, in retrospect . . .

Well, I wanted to digest the whole experience for a while, and not anything superfluous. I never could write under a deadline . . . 1) The before and after show hang was a great frame to the show. Randyman gave me a cool <img src=pix/icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle> mousepad, and I met so...

The long dreaded sex topic . . .

<font color=red>Or perhaps long awaited? <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle></font id=red> One defining characteristic of progressive rock seems to me to be its reluctance in dealing with lust, rather than love. Oh, there are notable exceptions, like "Rhythm of Love," ELP's "Stil...

Prog with non-English lyrics . . .

Ruling out the former colonies, does anyone listen to foriegn language bands? Is there a French prog band? (as opposed to French speaking Swiss, a la Moraz). Did The Flower Kings start in Swedish? I know a bit about Van der Graf, and Magma, but most German bands are terra incognito for me. Renato, t...

The Revealing, part II . . .

<font color=blue>Subtitled: "Yeah, I Like Talking About Myself, But It's The Only Topic I Know REALLY Well." Or alternately, "Theproffet Only Has So Many Ideas." The first version, buried back in the archives from last Spring's growth spurt was pretty successful, so I had to try it again . . . My gi...

The new bands . . .

I've been hearing so many great albums by new groups, I have to see what others have heard . . . Lately, my contemporary favorite is Mercury Rev's All Is Dream. I could tell you that it makes me think of Magnification crossed with early Neil Young, but more fey than even Jon sometimes. Nice stuff . ...

This album forum has had an undeniable renaissance, so I had to say thanks again for taking over my old spot.

Paul Westerberg . . .

May be the total antithesis to Yes, but on the other hand . . . His songs are more relevant to me than U2 or any R.E.M. I dig Bob Mould, but Paul is a really great songwriter. Okay, as important to me growing up in the eighties as maybe Dylan was in the sixties . . . His new album, Stereo, revels in...

Well, at least set list information. I'm not sure if I can help out on the "Will Chris wear spandex tights again" controversy . . . I like spoilers. If you're attending a show with a non-conversant fan, it allows you to make a mix tape (or CD) highlighting songs they might not be familiar with. If y...

Tips on turning old LPs digital?

Jazz . . . the final frontier?

I'm not the ultimate Jazzer, but my taste does lean a bit that way, probably more than most. There's a great quote from Donald Fagan of Steely Dan, saying something like, "It doesn't take a lot of jazz influence to really piss off rock fans," or something to that effect. I think he's right, but I st...
