That's the album, and there's a 2013 re-recording.  I buy CDs as I'm old-school, though I do digitise them for convenience.  OK, if I were really old-school I'd buy vinyl...

From about 10 years ago I sell all my vinyl to replace it by mp3, a sad moment, I win place, but loose some nice moments in memory, but also money cos now the vinyls are a rarity and very expensive !

Am sorry that I insisted that my wife sell her extensive vinyl collection maybe 25 years ago due to lack of storage space - and of course everything was on CD.  (I still collect CD's and do not use MP3 etc. I hate the modern idea that one doesn't own anything and if the power goes out, you lose everything.)

But, the alternative is to hoard everything, cos "you never know..."

Yes Erwin it is all true all that and it is very sad, one does not think (I) do not think enough about the future at this time and follow the course of the life, with the being saying better qualities, and tidying up.
  I like your words, "cos we never know" this is what I say to my wife when I see the garage and the garden !

Indeed, now vinyl is for enthusiasts - electronic is so convenient for everyday use.  I mostly bought my vinyls when CDs came in and everybody was selling off their "old tech" cheaply.  Unfortunately I lost most of it when it "disappeared" during a flat move 😞  I'm still replacing parts of it on CD when I spot the bargains.

OK if you own a warehouse!

I still like to own the CDs (just in case!) but I rip everything to HDD to actually play them as it's more convenient and the only way to put them on a portable player.  I miss the cover art from the vinyl days though.

I thought there was copy protection on the CD's.  (Believe it or not I have never tried to copy a CD to a HD.)

None that I've encountered, though it may be out there somewhere.  I guess it's more likely to be on the modern high-volume sales stuff.  Even Windows Media Player has a built-in ripper, though it's not so versatile.  But I don't buy modern pop these days so maybe that's why I don't see protection.

Hehe - I've already paid good money for the music - I just want to choose which device!  Maybe it depends on jurisdiction, but many allow personal backups.

What kind of music band do you like in the past, and today ?

I'm a grazer - a bit of everything, but probably more Prog Rock than other types.  Any group with a 5-disc concept album and Roger Dean cover art :)

Though also a bit of jazz, older pop, classical and even tango.  I don't "get" the modern stuff at all, though - I've become like my grandparents!

Indeed YES!  Plus many more from that era - ELP, APP, Floyd, Genesis, solo Wakeman, etc...  I had most of Yes on vinyl - in one of those boxes that disappeared - now replaced by CD.  Now I bet they still can be bought second-hand on vinyl, but what a price!

I'm heartened that the genre is still very much alive with modern bands flourishing, like Magenta, Southern Empire & Mostly Autumn, and of course many of the old players like Anderson, Stolt and Hackett still tour (well, before Covid).

Here's Southern Empire covering Yes's "Roundabout", originally from the '70s to keep it thread relevant.

I also think the early Genesis is the best, the most creative, but as members left (Gabriel, Hackett) that creative process diminished.  While not so "prog" I do think they remained as a good rock band for a while, including Duke and even up to Abacab, but after that got a bit boring.  I'm not very familiar with Gabriel's work outside, except for his best known works - maybe I should explore more there.  Hackett has some good stuff too.

Other from that era are still around, such as Jethro Tull, Alan Parsons (post-Project), Supertramp's Roger Hodgson and Marillion.  Fish (ex-Marillion) has some good solo work, and even Kansas (wayward son) are still touring.

There's a bunch of internet radio sites specialising in Prog Rock, such as The Musical Box, Prog.fm and Progzilla - good places to find out what's new as well as hear old favourites.

One of the widest ranges of style has got to be the Alan Parsons Project, from spiky electronica through haunting ballads to soft rock - here's one from 1979:

I like after the ordeal from him and others also...

Man you have mine LP from before I was thinking there were lost for ever...I liked also AlPaProject in the eyes the famous tales mystery...turn of the friendly...  and robot this was the ones that I had so not so much !

Jethrothull not so much STramp Kansas Marillon yes

From years ago I dont remember when gplus exist I post everys days music on a forum and had over 3000 everydays 5...I wish to do it again....today is only gplus in my mind all is gone !

 

Let me show you a band group more modern, that I like very much, I don t know if you know it with Steve Wilson, full of diversity of rhytms.

Indeed I think Turn of a Friendly Card is possibly APP's best, though there's strong competition amongst their later works.  Gaudi is possibly their best 'moody' album.  The early stuff was still clever but experimental and somewhat patchy, though allowing Woolfson to master his own version of Spector's "wall of sound" later on.

Ah yes - Steven Wilson - very talented.  I don't (yet) own any but heard much on the radio, like his Porcupine Tree & Blackfield offerings, as well as solo.  Another artist I'll probably investigate further at some point - I have a tendency to buy several albums from one artist at once, to compare the range.  Can you recommend 3 Wilson albums to start?

But Wilson's very modern - definitely too late for this Cold War thread! ;)

So to counterbalance I'll add in some more Yes (in their pop phase) from 1983:

Thanks, will look them out!

To change direction a little, here's something to appreciate the M60A2 being in the game:

i have a deep love of crunching guitars. This is pretty much my go to when pushing out turns. not fast, not slow. just the right amount of speed and aggression

My choice is more modern sorry to don't respect the 80' !

oh it's not a band. it's just a guy with a kfc bucket on his head and a mask 😄. I would recommend checking him out. he's a weird one. no one has seen his face or anything. he's just a weirdo who happens to be extremely skilled on the guitars. still releases albums quite regularly. a great player and an even better composer. very versatile

Cold War (era) songs that put me in the fighting mood:

Reign of Blows - XTC

Bombs Away - The Police

Cities in Dust - Siouxsie and the Banshees

Songs from the era that make me want to sue for peace:

Stand Or Fall - The Fixx

Red Skies At Night - The Fixx

This World Over - XTC

The album Paranoid by Black Sabbath and the song House Burning Down by Jimi Hendrix have always led me to picture scenes of war.
