This is why I always liked the song - https://youtu.be/p09Mvu0u2kk - quite a commercial for a teenager in the 80s.

King Crimson - Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part I

Come 3:44, I knew I was in for an amazing ride. It still carries me away.

Yes - Close to the Edge

Do not play on laptop speakers. It needs full fidelity, not just high, to appreciate the interplay of melody and counter-melody, theme and counter-theme. Yes at their peak.

This one's a bit of a cheat. I'm posting an entire album.

Beau Brummels - Bradley's Barn

One of the most underrated bands of the '60s. This album still holds up today.

Flamin' Groovies - Yesterday's Numbers

Off of their third album, Teenage Head, which many "retro-critics", people who give modern critiques of old albums, call one of the best albums of 1971. Too bad its sales didn't match even the positive reviews of the time.

I'm also including a song off of their first album, "Supersnazz"

Flamin' Groovies - Laurie Did It

By the way, don't look online for the lyrics. What few sites have them just copied from each other and they are all wrong.

I met her at the station
She wasn't there on time
I told he I was frantic
She said that she was flying

Oh Laurie, she did it so well

There was a time on Tenth Street
Above the laundromat
I said, "Please stand beside me"
That's exactly why she sat

Oh Laurie, she did it so well

I remember a night in August
Looking up at the sky
When the silence lasted longest
And she wanted to die
Terrified and lost I wandered
Through the ruins we made
Longing to relive the night we laid

Let us congregate in silence
To the spot where Laurie lies
Kiss the brown grass she waits under
And toss insults at the sky

Oh Laurie, you know she did it so well
Oh Laurie, she did it so well ...
