    It would be cool if Cam's FM was also playing that Ramblin' Man Fair. One FM on the rock/main stage, one on the prog stage.

    No Nash the Slash since he's gone to the great gig in the sky.
    At least Ed Bernard can fill his shoes.
    Doubt Ed will wear mummy mask though.

    is that a piece from the new album?
    if the rest is of the same ilk, I may just go for it...

    Hmm, this sounds totally great! https://soundcloud.com/greatgs52/evo...Fwebsite-tunes

    Hopefully Mike will get this into the record store in Dundas. I think he's a big fan, will probably get it in. Or, I'll order it.

    I have a question about my download. It started at Amazon and then I imported it to Windows Media Player,because that is the only way I know how to burn a DL to Disc. When I get to WMP and drag it over to burn for some reason it is duplicating song titles. Track 1. Track 1. Track 2. Track 2 and so on. Pretty annoying and quite a pain in the ass to delete every other song. For kicks I burned it just to experience listening to these songs 2 times each. Bad idea,it got very tedious very fast. Anyway,does anyone have a solution to get these songs from 18-->--9?

    I have heard Transformation at least 4 times now and I have come to one conclusion. The time signatures are off the frickin' chart folks. I think out of 9 tunes only 1 is in 4/4 time. Violin solos galore. I kept thinking how much Cameron Hawkins still sounds like he could very well be singing with Yes. Then I thought,this is the album they either should have made or should make next year. It really is awesome.

    Glad you like it Rand, it's a belter we think and I think a lot of people on progears would like it too

    Well, I'm not afraid to state, although maybe a bit premature: this one equals, if not not surpass "Black Noise".

    There.

    Equals and surpasses. One original member,but the heart and soul of FM,Cameron Hawkins. The guy is an incredibly gifted musician. It's such a funny name when you realize that FM ignored FM.

    FM does play FM though. But only "Phasors on Stun". Actually I did hear "One O'Clock Tomorrow" once as well. So FM doesn't completely ignore FM. Now, if they play the new one, that would be something! (they won't of course, it would be like them playing a newer Saga track, they just won't do it)

    Anyway, agreed that Cameron Hawkins is incredibly gifted!

    Vicky, any plans to make the Nearfest 2006 recording an option on Amazon as well?

    Cam Hawkins has to be one of the most under-rated musicians in Prog.

    Awesome keyboards, excellent bass, solid vox.

    There's almost nothing he can't do. I man-love that guy.

    BIG BIG influence on me as a musician. I used to sit at the organ in my parents living room learning all the keyboard and bass pedal parts with my Rickenbacker strapped around my neck. Then in the 80s, I got heavy into sequencers and synth programming. Good times!

    Not so sure I'm ready to go there yet but just had a second helping of this one and I'm comfortable saying that it is indeed very, very good!
