Actually I said Kingdom Come were a hard rock band, not prog. Sorry to get off topic.

LZ's music covered a range of genres but it was not primarily prog. I guess some of their longer and more instrumental tracks could be classed as prog rock, eg. Dazed and Confused, Achilles Last Stand, No Quarter, Kashmir, In The Light. I've been a LZ fan since 1977 when I first heard LZ 4 and TSRTS. Now I have all their albums, mostly on vinyl.

BTW, my interest in prog rock began with Rick Wakeman ( Rick Wakeman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) listening to his album Six Wives Of Henry VIII ( The Six Wives of Henry VIII (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) in early 1974. A friend of the family had a copy. My personal copy was signed by Rick when I met him ca. 1990.

Octavarium, 24 minutes exactly :-) I have the album (same name).

Jethro Tull's "Thick As A Brick" ( Thick as a Brick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) at 43:46 is my all time favourite "epic". If I put it on, I have to listen to the whole thing. I have the original vinyl with fold-out newspaper. I enjoy playing the opening riff (capo on 3).

Been listening to an ELP 'best of' lately, rediscovered some tunes I'd completely forgotten. Greg Lake's bass sound on 'Knife Edge' is my favourite electric bass sound ever I think, & love Keith Emerson's piano playing on 'Take a Pebble'.
(Can do without the over-the-top synth stuff on a lot of the other tracks though...)
