I love the guitar work on this one TF and the engineering mixing etc. Reminded me of the Echo's album.
I've  needed some inspiration lately and this is the best thanks for posting.
Also The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is one of my all time doubles. Fantastic music and imagery it's Genesis at their best IMHO.

Well life and things have got in the way of being able to contribute to Chordie and write some decent music lately TF.
I do keep an eye on the songwriting section though and though I don't comment I do read and listen to most of the submitted work.
All the active mods Doug and Roger especially do such a great job at keep the spammers at bay there's not much to do in that department.
Anyway I'm still around.

It doesn't seem a week goes by without loosing another big name from the music industry.
Status Quo is a band I always enjoyed listening to they never much changed their style which was to me their appeal.
RIP Rick and thanks.

All Chordie members have a great Christmas.and good new year.

I feel so sad at Gregs passing in a way more so than Keith's not sure why. The guy was a gentlemen as well as wonderful guitarist and musician.
ELP was and still is one of my all time favourite bands and had a great influence in my musical choices.
I know death is a part of life but losing your musical heros brings home to me how short life is.
RIP Greg and thanks.

I grew up celebrating this event much loved by us Brits. My kids and G. kids also have enjoyed it over years and by the sounds of it's still popular now.
It strange how the attempt at mass murder should be remembered so joyfully we are a strange lot.

Really I  haven't practiced guitar seriously for years. I play almost every day for my enjoyment. I only get serious if I've got some lead to play on a recording then I guess I practice a lot to get it right.
I just got to many other things in life to get bogged down with guitar practice every day.

Being of a certain age early Floyd had the greatest impact on me musically. As keepitreal says Meddle was so different at the time and the track Echoes was mind blowing in good way.
The Darkside album had some great tracks was more main stream and lead to commercial success.
I enjoyed listening to all the later works but they never had the same impact of the earlier works.
I watched a couple of documentaries about the bands history and realised what a huge effect they had on the development of music in the world.

I must say Phill that was like being transported  back to the 70's musically and I mean in a good way.
Excellent stuff. 
In my Prog Rock days if the title track didn't cover the first side of the LP it wasn't worth listening to smile
