Sharing some of the spins that have been enjoyed at Vinyl Connection HQ over the past little while.
Any favourites amongst these?
The third LP in the ‘trilogy’ of this particular period of King Crimson. While not as startling as Discipline, it remains an under-rated album from Robert Fripp’s Jedi knights.
Rick Wakeman’s solo debut still delights whenever I hear it. The prog rock ambition, the virtuoso keyboard skills, the historical pretence… It’s marvellous!
Not a particularly favourite band, but I’ve always loved this cover. The album is called “Crisis? What crisis?”.
A later Bill Evans disc, from 1971. The legendary jazz pianist explores electric piano for the first time on vinyl.
Having left Genesis, guitarist Anthony Phillips launched a long and rich solo career with the excellent LP “The Geese and the Ghost” in 1977. The was his third LP, and the beginning of the long-running “Private Parts & Pieces” series (1978). The art work is by Peter Cross, and is one of my favourite album covers, ever.
Which leads us to “Trespass”, the second Genesis LP and the last one featuring Anthony Phillips.
