    "Fragile" was my introduction to the world of ProgRock. Hearing SSOTS on my crappy little AM radio blew my (small-town Texas 15 year old) mind away!

    Maybe I was just a clueless teenager when Trick came out, but I did not even notice the change in who was doing the lead vocals until I read the album credits. And I had been listening to Lamb,...

    As I mentioned earlier, I have been listening to the new Transatlantic (both versions) and my experience listening to them on Amazon Ultra HD has been "gapless". YMMV

    Amazon Music recently started streaming some music in what they refer to as Ultra HD quality. So far, the only Prog I have listened to that offers this level is the recent Transatlantic releases....

    I could see Hackett doing "Fly on a Windshield" & "Silent Sorry in Empty Boats" (pieces where he is very prominently featured) between other longer pieces in his set.

    Did you happen to catch Peter Gabriel on Sept. 12, 1982 when he played the Agora in Dallas? I was there. My best memory of that night was when he did Shock the Monkey while he climbed around & swung...

    I believe that when you first encounter the album has a lot to do with how deep it sinks into your psyche. I was 4 months away from graduating high school when I bought TLLDOB. I have been...

    ^^^^^^^^ Yes, but I feel like SW is going to keep a tighter grip on this album to help boost sales. There is a lot more excitement out there (in internet world) about this PTree reunion than SW...

    Do you have a limited number of pre-order slots available or is it open-ended?

    The Amazon Music app (which I use for streaming music) shows 10 tracks total - Track 1 is Harridan - Tracks 2 thru 10 show empty placeholders.

    I saw tour dates listed on the video announcement for about 15 cities in the UK/Euro area. No US dates listed yet. Goes by pretty fast, hard to read.

    The one time I saw Steve play Dallas was at the Agora Ballroom (also near NW Highway) in November 1981 on his Cured Tour.

    That is absolutely possible that I missed an early 90's tour stop in Dallas. That was pre-internet days, so it was very hard to keep up with prog act tour information.

    In Mr. Fripp's case, his more youthful appearance is maintained by chasing his hot wife around their mansion on a daily basis. On the other hand, Tony Levin is an alien and does not age. 😉
