Everybody knows Bill. Drummer for Yes on (arguably) their most popular LP, Fragile, drummer for King Crimson, drummer for lots of others too. And solo star? Not really, but he has made a few. And some are better than others. This one is Feels Good To Me from 1978. It felt good to put this up here so if it feels good to download it, go ahead and then decide it feels good for you to listen to. Let me know, okay? Ripped at 320kbps.

This is an album I've had for years, by Morgan Fisher, called Nova Solis. It was released in 1972 and is quite an interesting little LP. Keyboard heavy prog with space rock leanings. My copy was an Italian import, and while pretty much beat to shit, doesn't sound too bad.

This is D. Beaver's 1973 Combinations. Not really a prog album, but there are some proggy moments here and there. I'd call it pop prog for lack of a better term. It reminds of Todd Rundgren in places, a bit like the Babys in spots. It has some very nice vocal harmonies and great hummable songs. Best thing about it: got it at a thrift store for a whopping quarter. And for me that makes it even better. Seriously though, if you like obscure 70's rock, give this a try, it's really good stuff

Hi Time,

maybe you don't know that some of your links do not work directly.
Actually, there should always be a ".htm" or ".html" suffix...

I just checked a bunch of them and they work fine for me. I guess just add the suffix if they don't work for you. This is the first I've heard of the problem.

Lorenzo said...

It is actually strange: when I click on a link (which hasn't the suffix), a blank page opens...
I guess it has something to do with my browser's preferences, if the links work for you...
Anyway, I had already understood that I had to add the suffix in the address bar...
Bye

Greetings, Time Traveller! I will also try posting this request as a response to your most current entry, as I do not know whether you will be aware of my commenting here to one of your July 2006 entries. I have been wishing for years that someone would either reissue or otherwise make available D. Beaver's phenomenal 1973 prog-pop masterpiece, the album Combinations, and I am delighted that you have taken the latter approach. Thank you! Now, as to the request that I mentioned earlier: I realize that this might make you feel like you are having to repeat yourelf, but could you possibly recapture/rip the tracks Don't Give Up, Come Hear It, Anthony Beechum, Here It Comes, and Combinations all together as a single mp3 file, thus recreating the seamless original 7:46 medley in which these tracks appear on the LP? Unless I am mistaken about the process for doing so, I think that this would actually be even simpler than it was for you to separate those tracks into the previous three mp3 files you created. For what it is worth, you would earn my deep gratitude if you would do so. If you are willing to do this, just post instructions on where and when it would be available. Thanks for at least considering the possibility, and for making this unjustly overlooked classic accessible again in the digital medium along with other hard-to-find items. We share some similar tastes (Happy The Man, the Merryweather-Word Of Mouth album, etc.).
