I'm still getting used to Elton's new "voice" but one aspect of his talent that never fails to amaze is his brilliant piano work. These three pieces are spread throughout the record but I can't stop playing them together. Play one after the other and you'll see what I mean. Simply beautiful.
He also records as Smog but regardless what name is used, Bill Callahan just might be one of the most brilliant artists to continue to fly under the radar. Atmospheric, direct and utterly essential.
I cannot stop listening to this album!
Needed some Crimson tonight and it doesn't get much better than this.
An amazing box, all the albums remastered and a few discs of extras and unreleased goodies. Here's a few to check out.
I have a strong temptation to spend a lot of my weekend listening in the "Prog" section of The Basement. This has always been one of my favorite records.
