    Battleships confide in me...

    ... and tell me where you are
    Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are
    Lost in summer, born in winter, travel very far
    Lost in losing circumstances, that's just where you are



    That probably means absolutely nothing to all but a few, - maybe it's a few that were senscient in the early 70's or maybe have had a quick flick through your parent's good old vinyl collection, and had a listen sneaky

    Were talking Prog Rock here, and a blast back to those freewheeling days when a small number of British musicians attempted to push rock as far as it could go and danced the thin line between rock, jazz, classical, psychedelia and art. Out were 3 minute pop ditties and in came works that lasted a whole side, gatefold sleeves, concept albums and musical over indulgence.

    Band like Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Emerson Lake and Plamer, Egg, Family and Soft Machine. Band's you've probably never heard of but they left a lasting legacy

    But did anyone catch the Prog Rock night on Beeb4 last week? if you didn't and you're into rock history, then it's worth catching up via iPlayer on this often ignored era of British Rock.

    Anyway. crank up the speakers give this a listen with an open mind... and remember it's over 35 yrs old before you judge it

    ..i'm revisiting some old vinyl and loving it

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
