I agree that Zen Archer is pretty prog, as is Breathless. (I'm starting to see how broad prog actually is...I think even Funkadelic could qualify [another artist I adore] ) Rundgren made it on to my list for the next Desert Island game, but due to lack of time I could only fit I Saw The Light.

On the Focus front, I'm just skipping around. I loved the shredding guitar in Hocus Pocus, Harem has a great vibe, but I especially loved Janis; the bass line is killer and the flute compliments it surprisingly well.
Wait until you hear my playlist. Todd Rundgren's guitar playing with Utopia will blow you away. His work on Wizard and Todd are only the tip of the iceberg.

As for Focus, you should download the live album too. They were one of the best live acts from a musical stand point back then.

Maybe it would be neat to compile bonus tracks from the contestants and send them out with the entries. Great idea or terrible idea, Axver?

I found out something very sad the other day.

My copy of Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is all screwed up. Time to shell out $22 for a new copy.

Oh well, I hope the liner notes are killer at least.

Genesis cover art and liner notes are some of the hidden gems of prog rock.

Isn't that just flouting the time limit rule?

But yeah, that could be cool.

Aren't there a whole set of Genesis remasters coming out sometime this year? If the remastered Lamb isn't out yet, I'd wait until it does come out before buying a new copy if I were you.

Though I'm not really up with the play on what Genesis albums have and haven't been remastered yet. I just recall reading a couple of months ago that all the albums are being remastered in conjunction with the band's reunion or something along those lines.

(!) Ah, yes, you would be correct. I read earlier this evening on wikipedia about a Foxtrot remaster, so I suppose it's only logical that there would be one for LLDOB as well. I think it could be an SACD hybrid.

With the bonus tracks, maybe you wouldn't know who submitted them?

Or...the sub-genres of Prog could each be represented by some bonus tracks. Sort of a Prog rock road map.

Hubby (who needs to register ) asked if he used Supper's Ready, could he break it up and just use part of it?

Unfortunately, no. It has always been released as a single track.

Hmm. We could do something like that. Or if we don't get an eighth contestant, maybe we can tell notAxver to go to hell and make an eighth playlist where each contestant submits some "bonus tracks" and we make them into a full playlist?

Well, only if notAxver agrees. It would interesting to see if what we discard ends up beating us.

I'm coming to poison your dinner.

I've got an amazing playlist of 10 songs that runs for 6 hours 10 minutes. It will win.

Anti-Larry. If Larry had made a 6 hour 10 minute playlist, it would have 70 songs, 40 by Westlife.
