One needs to listen to this album very closely to hear how they fused the band and a live orchestra songs together.  They alternate from one to another and the engineer did an amazing job.  All using analog tape.  If you have a really good turntable & system you can hear the very light tape hiss.  Analog at it's best.  -John

Yes, I agree.  These types of songs make you think and reflect way too much.  Hoping Bill plays something from the Archie's soon!

One of my favorite songs until Bronx Tale kind of ruined it for me. That song has no business in a scene where people are being beat up!

Godlike! This one holds a special place for me for 2 reasons, neither of which I'll explain here, and both of which allow me to listen to this overplayed (?) track happily anytime I hear it.

Long Live RP!

OK.  I want Steven Wilson to produce and mix this......   probably from scratch.   Silly me.  

But it is still iconic, path-breaking and just a terrific song all by itself.  Heard this for the first time in the late 60s; played the album to death while working and exploring the Canadian Rocky mountains in the mid-1970s.

Thanks for the wishes — even if I am a few months late.

So are you voting in all the primaries?  

Up here in Canuckistan, we're all rootin' for Trump!  Trump for president!

They used that mellotron on just about every song they recorded - and it was rarely "in the background".  Fortunately, they showed a little more restraint in this recording.

Songs that begin and/or end with gongs are cool. See Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and James Brown's "My Thang" for further examples.
