Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays

Thanks for the heads up, CG ... that's really odd 'cuz it's usually the reverse. Try this one; it's the same rendition, but posted by someone else:

Same concert, CG, but a different tune from it ... good find. There's an interview with Deep Purple's former guitarist (Ritchie Blackmore) in this month's issue of "Guitar" magazine. In it, he says he never gets tired of playing "Smoke of the Water".

Roxy Music   "Out of the Blue" and "For Your Pleasure"    London, 2001

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nnA72_kSkE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lR_SqG1NLrk

I couldn't decide on one selection for this week, so here are two from Roxy Music's terrific concert at the Apollo Theatre in London, from 2001. Roxy Music always had a bit of an avante garde edge to their style, and no one (except for perhaps Todd Rundgren or Split Enz) really came close to producing music anywhere similar. Vocalist Bryan Ferry's unique style has made them easily recognizable. This performance features a stellar violin solo by Lucy Wilkins, reminiscent of Eddie Jobson. And Phil Manzanera's iconic red 1964 Gibson Firebird is high up on my wish-I-owned-one list. There's a wonderful article about Phil in the June 2018 issue of "Guitar World" ... a true gentleman.

The dramatic one-by-one exit of the band members at the end of "For Your Pleasure" (while the song plays on) is both haunting and beautiful ... enjoy!

Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays

This one was enjoyable, and with at times a strange combination of instruments that sounded great.

UK / King Crimson    "One More Red Nightmare"    Tokyo, 2012

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQPJ22A8ICo

Although this a new version of the group UK, and the song is from King Crimson's third album ("Red"), singer / bassist John Wetton co-wrote it with Robert Fripp, so I guess it's not really a cover. Drummer Marco Minneman is probably one of only a handful who could take over with Bill Bruford's abilities on the skins. I've been personally enjoying how a lot of prog groups over the years have used the violin in their work, and Eddie Jobson has to be considered on of the pioneers for doing this. Plugged into an effects array, he gets lots of interesting sounds from his signature acrylic-body instrument. Wetton is in fine voice here, and he's been missed since his passing in January 2017.

Genesis    "Entangled"    London, 1976 (bootleg video)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMNO3gjOVHM

From the 1976 album "A Trick of the Tail", this was Genesis' 7th studio album and their first without Peter Gabriel. The album is a collection of songs with an "Alice in Wonderland" type of feel. Critics were wondering how the group would fare without Gabriel, and this album showed high-quality sound and song-writing as a capable answer to their concerns. "Entangled" is a fun song to learn on the 12-string, and it's always better if there's another guitarist with a 12-string to work along with. Although the basic riff is reasonably simple, there's lots of room to tweak and improvise, especially in the closing couple of minutes. It's about a person's experience in surgery, and the dream-scape effects of going under and coming out of anesthetic.

Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays

Tenement Funster Genesis is is a great choice and I still  have some CD's with Peter Gabriel. They were on 33's and I converted them and some others to CD's so listen when I drive.

Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays

Someone in the comments used the word "Hauntingly", TF. I'll add the word "beautiful". You can choose Genesis for me anytime, my friend. Loved Bill Bruford's percusssion work in ALL Genesis music, by the way. Percussionists are simply great drummers. Me-I'm just a simple drummer.. smile

Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays

CG ... glad you enjoyed it! I have used an online file converter to save a lot of YouTube music as MP3's, so I could do the same thing. I had a large vinyl collection at one time, but it was all lost in a fire over 30 years ago.

Bill ... I've always loved Genesis, but for me the musical creativity went downhill somewhat when Steve Hackett left, not Gabriel. Of course that's just a matter of personal taste. Phil, Mike, and Tony decided to go into the pop music genre to make more $$$, because ... let's face it ... prog rock is not usually a huge money maker.

Your sharp eye spotted Bruford playing along with Collins for that tour, which put two of the best drummers of that era on the same stage together. Apparently Bruford would have stayed with Genesis full time, if they'd wanted him for studio and stage work. But of course Phil did the studio work, so it wasn't a good enough deal for Bruford. Not long after, Chester Thompson came along, and spent the next decade or so touring with them.
