He just doesn't get that a simple "oops, I was wrong" could and would avoid so much shit. But then, how could he be expected to know this...he's not married...<br><br>It does, however, make for some good entertainment, and hey, it got The Beebster to make a post! (where ya been dood?)

Its really a blast! <br><br>I've always been around, but I don't feel the urge anymore to speak up on a regular basis as I used to...  It became a bit of repetetive I guess - and I got a bit tired of the 'habits' of some of the other regulars, and my own predictiveness... Oh well, I might pick it up and post a bit more than the last couple of months...  <br><br>

I remember when I was a kid, my sibs and I were big Beatles fans. We would have bought any Beatles 45 without even hearing it. When I looked at the Hey Jude disc and saw the song was more than 7 minutes long, I thought my world seemed on shaky ground. If it was possible to put 7 minutes on a 45, why didn't everybody do it? Maybe the Beatles were magical!<br><br>The thing was, Hey Jude had this ridiculously long and quiet fade-out. That must be the explanation. It's a relief not to have to acknowledge the possibility of magic in the universe.

Almost anything by Klaus Schulze. In fact, he has a double album with ONLY ONE TRACK.<br><br>Oh, and Tubular Bells.<br>

There's this Todd Rundgren lp (I think it's called "Initation", too lazy to look for it now) where one track runs over 30 minutes, and on the album sleeve he encourages the listener to record it to tape so it can be played louder.

We already proved that Isaac was wrong - and we haven´t even reached the surface.

Interesting, isn't it, that so many of the albums quoted above are of the "yester-year" progressive variety - Yes, Genesis, etc. Long-winded old gas-bags, weren't they? I was a big Yes fan up until the mid-70s, and a couple of years back I picked up practically the whole Yes catalogue on CD during my nostalgia binge. I played them all incessantly for a while, but soon O.D.'d on them: I appreciate the many good qualities of this band still, but am hugely embarrased by the bad ones. "Relayer" (quoted by jaypfunk on page 1 above) has got to be one of the stinkiest albums ever ... but I still get just a little bit excited by Chris Squire's bass playing.

Fragile effectively begins and ends my YES interest. I bought the album a fair few years ago, was in utter rapture, and spent the next months tracking down YES records, and being completely befuddled as to how YES never managed to replicate the greatness of Fragile. Oh well.

i've allways loved relayer.    it's too bad patrick moraz did not make more records with yes.   i think yes went downhill after relayer,  particularly after wakeman rejoined them.    but i still have a soft spot for most of the earlier yes albums.

Shit, jaypfunk, I apologise - I seem to have turned this into a "Hey, let's talk about the qualities & deficiencies of Yes" thread.<br><br>Not that this is relevant to the thread either (but at least relevant to the site) - I'll bow out by making the following statement. I admit that, musically, I pretty much live in the past: a music necrophiliac. Now and again I try to rekindle the excitement I used to get listening to those bands I raved about in "the good old days" - but invariably become bored or even excruciatingly embarrased. Zappa has always been the exception to the rule, though. He still sounds to me as fresh as the day I first heard him and somehow never seems to have become dated or tired. This is what you'd have to call "The Z Factor", I guess.
