    DEEP CUT Thread

    Let's share some deep DEEP cuts in this thread.

    I'll start with "El Regreso" by Nexus off of the 2005 Odyssey: The Greatest Tale compilation. Fantastic organ, amazing guitar playing, bass pedals galore, tons of Mellotron, and great vocals even though I can't understand a word of it because it's in Spanish.



    The keyboard bit at 11:15 is especially tasty. Just listen to those 12-strings surrounding that lead line.

    Kind of a mix between Greg Lake and lounge singer on the vocals. Super trippy - I need to listen to more Purple, I only know their more popular stuff.

    He was a one-hit wonder, but this song is creepy and haunting. (Tony Levin on bass.)

    The vocal processing is definitely odd on that tune. Almost like a psychedelic Don McLean. I like the chord changes and the sax.

    Here's some back of the rack power pop from a power pop master

    IMHO, this is their best album, That's my favorite song of theirs and the album is a desert island disc of mine.

    I was actually going to point out the drumming, which stays the same throughout the track,

    That Odyssey: The Greatest Tale compilation is such a great triple cd! CD 3 is spectacular with the Tempano, Minimum Vital and Aether songs. The opening Nathan Mahl song on disc 1 is another great one.

    Lift don’t get the amount of press as their DDR cousins Stern-Combo Meissen, but maybe they ought to start:

    Confirmed Bachelors: the dramedy hit of 1883...

    Greatest tune ever? Let's go with it.

    This does cut deep and will definitely get you dancing around the breakfast table. Haven't heard this since I got rid of my vinyl copy of "Strange New Flesh".

    Good one.
