strangely, I've never visited this thread before, and am very impressed by the amount of Prog Rock floating about in here... I think it goes to show that the genre is a farly common stepping stone to Classical Music, for those who weren't exposed to it as a youngster... 8)

Welcome in my friend....you are most welcome :D

Please feel free to share some of your thoughts (both past and present) on Prog Rock as I remember that it was big in your like at one time :wink:

I wouldn't claim that Elton John is entirely my kind of music but I played this
specifically for two tracks: Come Down in Time and Love Song. The rest is
fine though. Mum bought it for me as one of her favourites in her time, having
shown me a DVD track from one of the Old Grey Whistle Tests. He was playing/singing
Tiny Dancer (orig. from Madman across the Water). Another beautiful song.

Since my visit to Haiti a couple of week ago I'm a tad subdued and this fitted the mood.
Bryter Layter almost. Perhaps I should give that a spin. Brighten the Northern Sky.

That album has a string section playing on it, another area where we are influenced early on by Classical Music that we don't really know we are hearing, of course that's only if you bought the LP when it first came out, it truly is a Desert Island Disc...

Yep, different enough for me not to buy it, I had given up on them when this came out, I find that their music does not really last over the test of time, I played This Was not long ago, I took it off halfway through the first side...

So would I.
I think they became interesting with "Thick As a Brick", and summed up their best years with the live "Bursting Out". Not that I'm an expert, but I like that period of Tull, & Passion Play is still the main one for me.

A masterpiece (only Lorca challenges its greatness). Whilst every track stands out for its daring, I'll always remember the beauty of Song to the Siren and the unnerving title track.

Very interesting, gents.

I don't think I'd ever actually listened to This Was until the 40th anniversary reissue; I find that it varies from interesting in its own right to of interest probably just to one already engaged with the band. The question is a little muddled because of all the extra material on the reissue, much of it was actually later included in the anthology Living in the Past, which is an old sentimental favorite for me. On balance, I have no quarrel with This Was, but YMMV.

Minstrel in the Gallery, OTOH, is my favorite Tull album much of the time. Don't get me started ; )

I recall the issue of the album being available as mono and stereo, but was unaware of remastering issues.

I looked it up on Wikipedia to see what info it had.

"In 1997, Buffalo Springfield was remastered and issued with two versions on the same CD, the mono tracks from Atco 33-200 first, then the stereo tracks from SD 33-200A. Not contained were the stereo mix of "Baby Don't Scold Me" from Atco SD 33-200 or the mono mix of "For What It's Worth" from Atco 33-200A."

Steve Stills and Neil Young still include some Buffalo Springfield material in their concerts.

One of my favourites is this 1991 clip of Stills performing For What It's Worth solo - just Stills and a Telecaster. This clip is taken from a Stills solo section in a Crosby, Stills & Nash concert.
