A shameful secret of mine is my devotion to the great prog bands of the 70's onwards (Yes, King Crimson, Van der Graf Generator, Jethro Tull etc) and I have always heard echoes of that style in the Oils music (particularly "10 ....1").
Does anyone else here any link, or have I disappeared among my Cozmic Debris?
HMMM - I would not call YES, Tull, or Crimson SHAMEFUL secrets. I am less familiar With Van der Graff Generator. I have been known to listen to "Thick as a Brick" upon occasion all the way through with the headphones on. I think there is some "progressive" elements on 10..1 - in particular "Scream in Blue". Other than that, I don't tend to notice it. Perhaps it is there, and I only notice it when it becomes VERY obvious.
Now - Would my ELO albums qualify for Shameful Secrets?
