44. The Solid Time Of Change

Installment #44 of the Solid Time of Change aired on Saturday July-15-2017 (c/o CiTR.FM.101.9).

Podcast (Solid Time begins a few minutes in). Youtube playlist (not entirely accurate).

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-Four of the journey went as follows:

  1. Alice Cooper – halo of flies
  2. David Bowie – sweet thing
  3. David Bowie – candidate
  4. David Bowie – sweet thing [reprise]
  5. Yes – Siberian Khatru
  6. Jethro Tull – Passion Play [edit]
  7. Emerson Lake + Palmer – Toccata [edit]
  8. Yes – starship trooper
  9. Robert Fripp – water music
  10. Robert Fripp [with Peter Gabriel] – here comes the flood

Fresh episodes typically air every Saturday night, starting 11 pm (Pacific time) c/o CiTR.FM.101.9. However, Randophonic will be taking a break from new programming for a while starting next week (July-29). Our Facebook page will stay active.

Jethro Tull’s Disaster Passion Animals + War

By way of hyping Randophonic’s next big deal series (The Solid Time of Change – aka the 661 Greatest Records of the so-called Prog Rock era) which is due to premiere this Saturday on CiTR.FM.101.9 (Vancouver, BC and thereabouts), here’s a little something which aired on last week’s program.

Being an attempt at imagining the Jethro Tull double album that was intended to come after Thick as a Brick, but became what are now known as the Chateau D’Isaster Sessions … comprised of various tracks that were only released many years after the fact, plus stuff from the Passion Play and War Child albums.
