I'll bite - what album might that be  bostonba63 ?

For myself, I'll be hard pressed to think of a favourite album of prog that has not already been heavilly represented on S.A.'s playlist  Wink


Glad you were hungry.  

The album and I say album because that is the format I first experienced it in, is by the group Love and the title is Forever Changes.

Now pray tell, why would I choose this album, since it is likely not considered prog.  Well prog is a hard genre to define and I think that this album holds much of the majesty of prog, that some would associate with this genre and certainly some nearly 40 years later is still held in high regard by many.

Why is it a fav of mine.  Well like music for many, certain songs, albums, artists, take you back in time.  For me this album takes me back to a time when I was still a teenager and the joy of discoverying music, seemed almost to be neverending.  

I still remember the first time I listened to this album, it was a summer night and I was over an older friend's house and we were enjoying ourselves   Smiley.  The place was what you would describe as garden apartments and there were friends who would come and go from the adjacent buildings.  Well I wandered over to one of the friend's apartment and he was rather buzzed  Smileyand decided to play me this album, knowing my hunger for music and we sat on the floor and listened.  He was quite proud he had found an album in his collection that I was not familiar with.

At that point, it became and still is one of my favorite albums.  It had everything that I loved in music, as we sat there, harmonies, orchestral accompaniement, thought provoking lyrics, dark and light contrasts throughout.  It was complex and then it was simple, it was soothing and then it was harsh.  It was like taking a trip and experiencing all the different terrains that the trip offered, without leaving your house.

Well eventually the album had to be turned over and well, I wandered back to the other friend's house and stayed a while longer, but I did not forget the album and shortly thereafter, the album was in my ever growing collection.

Although many years have passed since that night, whenever I hear a track from that album it takes my back to that rather warm summer evening when my mind, eyes and ears were opened once again  Smiley, and I discovered something new and fresh that I could sink into and explore.  

Frank thanks for all the good times, and Mark thanks for deciding to play something you thought would expand my musical horizons.

For it surely did, as I write this nearly 30 years later.




I could almost see you slipping back into that scene from all those years ago bostonba  Smiley

Interesting story and I'm sure we can get that album played for you no problem at all in the very near future.  I can't wait myself!!    Cool


Lithium;

Thanks for the comment.

Hawkwind is killer.

Excellent post Steven. It sounds like a fantastic album and also a definite contender for a future 'Album in focus' session ... Cool

I'll arrange a thread for this shortly but a point to consider is it will mean adding even more CDs to the (already) extensive 'to buy' list ... Roll Eyes
