I think I need to start browsing thrift stores until I find this, the self-titled, and BSS on vinyl. I sort of feel like my life isn't complete without them in my collection. (I didn't list Trilogy because I already have it.)
Agreed. The Only Way (Hymn)/Infinite Space (Conclusion) and A Time and a Place are really cool as well. Jeremy Bender doesn't do as much for me and Are You Ready Eddy? is pretty much a throwaway (I pretty much agree with Steven Wilson that the album would've been stronger with "Oh, My Father" included instead), but overall side 2 is well worth listening to.
Tarkus is my fave by ELP. Back in the day, if you had the lp, the entire side one of Tarkus took you on such a journey, and the album art, with the comic strip adventure of the Tarkus critter-machine. Just so science-fiction cool. This album still sounds like music from some future post apoco dark ages or something. Heavy, man.
I don't have to look it up. I understand why Tarkus is not listed as one song here. It depends on the [url=http://musicbrainz.org/release/98a79abb-72f3-4c32-a825-80e54dcac4ac.html]release[/url], as to whether or not it's broken up into [url=http://musicbrainz.org/release/c5d93157-322a-4598-8625-7e8d1175d68c.html]individual parts[/url].
