PROG ON THE BRINY SEA?

TOP-TEN REASONS

TO TAKE ONE OF THEM PROG CRUISES

 

  1. Even after using the household food budget to purchase CDs,

I STILL have little Johnny’s college fund to take cool cruises!

 

  1. If YES plays Tales from the Topographic Ocean whilst we’re

bobbing through the Bermuda Triangle, my life will be complete!

 

  1. Due to “problems” with my financial lender, “Big Lucky

       Lucifardo” I thought a nice mini-vacation was in order.

 

  1. Just a “wibbly-wobbly” way to get to some darn fine Scuba waters.

 

  1. The Graf Zeppelin “Floatin’ Prog-Flight” was all booked.

 

  1. Where else can I sit next to Steve Hackett and complain about

Wolflight? *

 

  1. Frankly, that “Disco Cruise through the Straits of Hormuz”

just ain’t my cup of tea.

 

  1. My Doctor says I need more Dramamine in my diet!

 

  1. Really tired of being the oldest creepy guy at all the local

concerts.

 

– – Drum Roll, please –

 

And the Number One Reason

TO TAKE ONE OF THEM PROG CRUISES:

 

 

  1. FREE BUFFET 24 HOURS A DAY

 

.Mellotron set to 11

 

* In a not too funny Top-Ten I had to inject some true humor…i.e. Hackett’s new album is very good!!!

The TOP-TEN Reasons The Moody Blues ARE Prog!

 

  1. Have you not looked at the cover art of their first 7 LPs???       Plus: Gatefolds!

 Favour

  1. They are not now, or ever will be, in the “Rock and Roll” Hall of Fame (sic).

 

  1. The concept album Days of Future Passed with the “London Festival Orchestra” (some Decca classical musicians)

 

  1. Camel and Tull had flute players…Ray Thomas, anyone?

 

  1. Res Ipsa baby:

  1. 12 years of participation by one-time YES keyboard wizard Patrick Moraz.

 

  1. Songs with Graeme Edge’s poetry (Robert Frost he wasn’t)

 

  1. They’ve got to be old Prog dinosaurs…they’ve done an Ocean Cruise gig…and they ARE British.

 

  1. Justin Hayward took part in Jeff Wayne’s musical version of The War of The Worlds…that’s got to count for something.

 

Drum Roll Please

And the Number One Reason The Moody Blues ARE Prog!

 

 

  1. Three Words:  Mike Pinder: Mellotron!
