The new Glass Hammer for me (Ode to Echo).
Glass Hammer is so cool! My prog neighbor introduced me to them.

Ever check out Cathedral? My guitar teacher Dr. Dave Doig plays guitar on their most recent. It's far out man!
Marvin Gaye - "Inner City Blues"
Man, what a loss.

Absolutely! Cathedral ("Stained Glass Stories") is very much worth the listen. Their bass player is fabuloso and their songs have a nice complexity. Great progressive rock!

(But there are TWO different bands called Cathedral...I am speaking of the mid-seventies band that only had one album...I sense you are referring to the metal band by the same name that has many CDs...if so, tell us more about their style.)

I'm not referring to the English dark metal band. There was one from Long Island or somewhere around here.

Actually, if my information is correct- they partially reunited a few years ago and cut second CD. This is the one my teacher is on and it's great! It wasn't commercially available but Dave can sell and distribute copies.

This is what I found on them:

"The Progressive movement seemed to end in 1979, but interest in the “Stained Glass Stories “ album did not. It became a sought after collectable, eventually being hailed as “the best American progressive rock album ever”. In 1990 Syn-Phonics rereleased it on CD. With the growth of the internet, interest in Cathedral was rekindled. It was not until 2003, however, that Fred Callan called all his former band mates to resurrect the group. They experimented for three years. After a year in the studio “The Bridge “ was completed.
Cathedral has recently returned to the concert stage to premiere their new work and to pay a tribute to the old. The audience that filled the Boulton Theater for the Performing Arts on August 25, 2007 found it obvious that Cathedral is a live band and belongs in the spotlight!"
This is a lousy quality audio/video taken at their only public performance at the Boulton Center in 2007 I think. They are by no means a live band. The actual CD is great!

No wonder I was unsure...you threw me with the "most recent CD" bit and so I assumed you meant the "other" Cathedral (that has many CDs). I am glad we are referring to the same band because their original album is an amazing CD and worth any effort to find it.

I am envious that you have access to that much talked about but never released second CD. The info you present about the reunion and recording matches what I have read on a few Progressive music sites on the Web.

I'd love to access that second CD. If you'd like to connect me with Dave I would be very grateful (just PM me if you'd rather not have his contact info here).

Thanks, VU!
Sampling Mary Fahl, formerly of the October Project, on her site and U-tuba. One of the most beautiful, powerful and haunting voices I've ever heard. She'll be playing locally next month I see in the paper. Here's one she wrote based on an Anne Rice's novel.

I'm so glad I made someone's day! If you google him and his "Bayport School of Music" you can contact him directly. Let him know that his "student forever" Vince from Nesconset (originally) from Stony Brook U sent you. He's not private in that regard and would be most happy to sell you the CD. I have to get another myself because I gave my copy to my neighbor, "the quintessential prog rock fan."

Btw: I picked up tix to see Dream Theatre at The Paramount in Huntington tomorrow night. My brother got us passes to hang with the band backstage. So I'll hang with Petrucci in a band setting rather than just running into him at the supermarket!
