Wishbone Ash! I have bought 4 record LP's and haven't heard a song that I recognize yet. Can anyone tell me a hit song of theirs that I might know?
No. Can't help. Which is a surprise because if asked I would say I know Wishbone Ash.

Wishbone Ash! Reminds me of college.
"Argus" was the big album for me. "Time Was" was a big hit back in the day. I enjoy the entire album and I think about 1/2 of it caught good play.
Dont know if I have ever posted this, but Shaun (school friend and Cynic (UK) guitarist and I interviewed for BBC 1 News. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=q4EVR7MtXJA
"They may have less hair but they still can rock."

I love it! What a great feature. How cool to have such a loyal following. Congrats!
Thanks mate!
My listening recently has been centered around looking into the other, newer progressive rock bands out there. I've purchased several Spock's Beard CDs and even more Flower Kings CDs. So far, it is the latter (especially the CD "The Sum of No Evil") that I prefer more. It is amazing how much music is out there. I wish I had more time!
I've tried listening to new stuff, but I'm just trapped in the 80's. Like stuff from about 75 to 85 and not much either side of it.
A few weeks ago our local PBS station was airing a documentary on The Carpenters ("Close to You: Remembering the Carpenters") and I found myself singing along to most of the songs....maaaaan, which recesses of my pea brain has *that* been stored?? It reminded me of when I was a kid in the 70s, listening to my parents' 8-track tapes in the living room. Mom reminded me she danced around with my (then) baby brother in her arms singing "Top of the World." Sweet memories... Smile

I had a pal in grammar school that was a huge Carpenters fan.
Karen was a great drummer...perfect feel and time.

I understand.
The perfect thing would be for someone who knew your preferences to hand-pick only the best of various, newer groups that might resonate for you.
