I guess I was just feeling a little allergic when I was compiling things – the danger inherent in loving any particular song too much, playing it too many times. Which is definitely the case here.

It’s about many things, it’s about everything, I suspect, it’s about cross-cutting country corners and every Hank Williams railroad train that cried, and Belfast being a hell of lot farther away than f***ing Buffalo.

The Solid Time of Change is our overlong yet incomplete history of the so-called Prog Rock era – 661 selections from 1965 through 1979 with which we hope to do justice to a strange and ambitious time indeed, musically speaking.
Part Forty-Two of the journey went as follows:
Mason Williams – classical gas
Van Morrison – you don’t pull no punches but you don’t push the river
Genesis – the musical box
Rainbow – stargazer
Deep Purple – sweet child [space truckin] in time
Rolling Stones – you can’t always get what you want
Beatles – strawberry fields forever
Beatles – revolution 9
Pink Floyd – echoes
