Dunno if it’s the cold weather or the fact that it’s been awhile, but I’m craving prog.
Check out this mammoth BBC Four documentary called “Prog Rock Britannia: An Observation in Three Movements,” which (I believe) came out in 2009. It wonderfully steers you through the early post-Sgt. Pepper days of young prog in England.
Then revisit “Cat Food,” from the 1970 King Crimson album “In the Wake of Poseidon,” if only for Michael Giles’ water-tight drums, Robert Fripp’s dripping echoplex interlude (1:34) and Keith Tippett’s free-range piano throughout (proto-Bathtub Gin?). I guess there are a lot of reasons.
