...and now it is the two-disc version of "Progeny" by Yes (a live recording from 1972).
Most excellent! Alan White is a stand-out on the disc!
Eagerly awaiting the new Richard Thompson album "Still" on June 23, so I've been diving into my R.T. collection lately and making a best of R.T. playlist. All the classics, both solo and with Linda. Shoot Out The Lights, A Heart Needs A Home, When The Spell is Broken, Tear Stained Letter, Don't Tempt Me, I Feel So Good, Dad's Gonna Kill Me,et al. I could go on for hours. Saw him live with his electric trio on 6-14 here in Atlanta. On of the finest guitarists I've ever heard (with all love and admiration for our favorite towheaded Canadian). R.T. is one of the best Travis pickers walking the Earth today. If you've never heard him or heard of him, start with the Fairport Convention albums and work forward. You shan't be disappointed.
Have I raved about Leah Waybright's CD "Beauty Gone Wild"? It is a gem of a disc...first, the packaging: it is actually a miniature book in the 6x6 CD format and it is a concept CD about flowers. The artwork is lovely.

But the music is beautiful and while you might first think of it as New Age it is quite peppy and harmonically diverse. It features Ms. Waybright's keyboards and several of the "Happy the Man" musicians. Rick Kennell (bassist) produced it.

If you like Camel or Happy the Man or some of the other melodic progressive rock bands you will love it. If you like good keyboard work you will love it. If you have an open mind you will love it.

It is not available everywhere but one can find it on her website (Innertainment/Leah Waybright) and a few other places.
Habib Koite and Bamada...Baro. Really dig this album...raw strings and some cool percussive work.

Also...I've always been a closet OMD enthusiast.Blush




***EDIT***
I tried posting a few OMD links, but enough of them are blocked to make it clumsy, so I just ditched em. If you like OMD you'll have already heard them...if you don't like OMD, well...
For me it is a new-to-me band: Magenta.
Great progressive rock; they are clearly influenced by Yes, Genesis, Kansas, King Crimson, and they are not afraid to show it. I started with SEVEN and have just ordered 4 more. (I got clued into them because of two of the members' participation in the re-make of the Steve Hackett tune "Spectral Mornings" (which is a Parkinson's fund raiser))

Much recommended!

Yeppers, I always like OMD's "Architecture and Morality"
I've been listening to my collection of Type O Negative lately, with my recent purchase of the Dead Again Red edition. Also listening to a lot of Incubus as well. I like to not get stuck in any one genre.Smile
Don't get the Schwarzkopf reference.Huh I've never had the pleasure of hearing loons in the wild, but it's on the bucket list so maybe someday.

Travel with me now in the Way-Back machine to 1992...

Stormin' Norman would listen to the recorded sound of loons calling, during his strategic planning sessions.
