From Wikpedia:

Procession - Recorded January–March 1971
The Story In Your Eyes - Recorded 4 November 1970

I think it's awesome that all those older songs have recording dates.  You never see that on current songs, you just get "2012" or "2005" if you're lucky.  It shows a certain craftsmanship that the engineers took the time to record all that info and make sure it was passed down.

And we can see in the news when that main track was recorded that the US was nearing mid-term elections, some Kon-Tiki adventurers spending months aboard a raft in the South Pacific (La Balsa) were sighted and rescued near Brisbane, London was abuzz with speculation about Jack The Ripper, and of course the US was trying to figure out how to pull out of Vietnam.  And Jane Fonda was arrested for drug smuggling after bringing pills into the US from Canada.  Interesting to think so much was going on around the world when this track was being cut... I guess it kind of taints the magic of it but it also gives the music some context in world history & news.

Nice.  And pray tell where is grandma these days?  {#Roflol}

Sorry...just thought I'd throw that out there.  Despite the name the glass is minutely radioactive.  You probably emit more than it does.  Cool effect, though, eh? 

As for this timeless classic by the Moody's....they should be getting more credit from musical historians and such than they do.  In their time they certainly garnered my attention...at least....for a time.  The Moody's, ELP (Emerson, Lake and Palmer) and the like represented a genre I that captured my interest before the likes of the Allman Bro's and such yanked the focus away.  They still represent a favorite niche in my memory,though.  Good stuff.

I have actually played with Uranium ore, (U238) I do not glow in the dark since it is relatively inert, we should envy the guy on the left, if he enjoys a half life of 4 billion years.

Oh boy does this bring back good memories. Recently out of the USCG and soon going back to school in NYC in 1971. Still have the same good old friends, too.
