This will be an amalgamation of tunes from sessions past - kind of a greatest hits of sorts - they'll be plenty of progressive rock, jazz, fusion, space, folk, weird...you name it!
24 hrs worth from New Years Eve through New Years Day! 8-)

Enjoy everyone!! [smiley=beer.gif]

Indeed I have! Quite entertaining.
You may be the only other fan of this particular record that I know!

Post by Heracleum Mantegazziani on 2nd Jan, 2010 at 5:03am
For quite a long time it was the only album that I'd heard by Nektar - I bought the record way back in the 80's - probably on the cover alone, that & it was an 'English Import' which were always pressed on better quality vinyl...always loved that slide guitar!!


P.S. I understand that there is a replay of HM8 on Sunday - not sure of  the times - when I hear from the Progmaster I'll pass it on here!

[smiley=thumbsup.gif]It's official folks!
There will be a re-run of the New Year's Eve session on Sunday 9:00 GMT and Wednesday 3:00 GMT!

The big difference this time is that SAM - the master programming software will be randomly mixing the show!!
(somehow this always works out better than the planned playlist) [smiley=lolk.gif]

Looking Good People!

And it turns out to be an entirely worthy cover of TAB, well recreating the mood and atmosphere of the original. I especially appreciated the addition of touches of piano chords and mellotron-flute that aren't in the original (unless I've been unable to pick them out all these years). 8-)

Check out French TV's website for ordering their stuff - Tab was from their 2nd Album.

Don't know who's drumming for Schizoid Band these days...

Fripp's great on "King's Lead Hat", but his solo on Eno's "Baby's on Fire" is one of my favorite moments in music!!!

And speaking of guitar solos...

Currently playing track:
Nektar - Nelly The Elephant

...Roye Albrighton lays it on pretty thick and sinuous on this track, not shabby! He is a wonder live...
