What a bunch of great songs, the last prog album I listened to was Camel - Moonmadness.

Hi, Nima and thanx for your input. Never having listened to either group before, I must say it was a good experience. On balance, I prefer Camel to Gentle Giant. What about you?

Today I listened to Brain Salad Surgery from ELP and Performance [movie soundtrack] from Ry Cooder and Mick Jagger, amongst others.

I've been listening to Camel for the past seven, eight years, and I too prefer Camel over Gentle Giant. Camel has an over all melancholic feel to it which I really like.

Camel is such an underestimated prog band. Moonmadness and Mirage are absolutely brilliant and would certainly make my pop/rock album top100 regardless of sub-genre.

Agreed, Camel has become a cult band because of its unpopularity. It is quite a shame, though. However, I prefer such bands to remain underground; for brilliant music sometimes remains not understood or never known. I am surprised how their 80's and beyond never got the recognition it deserved. I can understand how the 70's stuff (the first four albums) not being understood by many and remaining underground but after that they had a certain pop edge to them that I never became a fan of. There were certain songs after that I appreciated like Stationary traveller.

Gentle Giant? "We. Can. Change. The. World."
At least modern computer font lets me type that out the way they sang it.

I walked downtown today, a calm and sunny day, with lots of leftover snow and ice.
When I was walking beside the side of this huge Catholic church, I started singing.
The echo was nice, and I was catching it from houses across the street.
I was singing the "Soon... oh soon, the light, ours forever, ours the right, the son shall guide us, a reason to be here".
That led into singing out my own words to another song in the same key,
feeling all expansive about humanity and what looks like the beginning of the fall of the American empire.
"We've got to get together sooner or later, because the revolution's here". Yeah!
Amun! May All Peace Be Upon You.

So far, that's my progressive rock update.
John, do you remember CSNY singing those lines in their song "Chicago" about the 1968 Democratic National Convention confrontations/riots between the police and demonstrators?
Myself, I liked the way CSNY did those lyrics as well.

Even though I have the original of this work from 1973 {?} on vinyl, I had completely forgotten about it. It was really nice hearing again, especially with the narrator announcing each instrument before it is introduced into the mix.

I'm thinking of getting the cd, as I haven't used my turntable for many moons now.
And please make sure your head doesn't start spinning around when you listen to these: :lol: :devil:

John, I did in fact listen to Electric Ladyland on a nice set of headphones and it simply blew me away! Not only for its particular time, but for the ages, this will remain a pioneering work. If I'm not mistaken, on one of the cuts {I believe Rainy Day, Dream Away} he was using overdubbed electric saxes and strings in a way which would presage some of what Stevie Winwood with Traffic would do on some of their albums later on down the road. The man was an out and out genius, no doubt about it; too bad he had to die so damn young!
