  Thu. 11/5/09 12:24pm Carmichael:

This sounds like a typical soundtrack from one of those Japanese horror flicks, where all the cute girls get their heads chopped off one by one.
  Thu. 11/5/09 12:28pm still b/p:

Mmmm....Thelma Ritter!

Cool, thanks man.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:20pm aleigh lewis:

  Thu. 11/5/09 2:21pm Cecile:

this harbinger is cool, it has that Tony Coulter dusty vibe to it
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:24pm bennett:

kept thinking that Harbinger was a cover of Dirty Water, has the same riff in the chorus! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xY-5fFxi8-s
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:25pm Scott:

Cecile, you may recall Dave Bixby of Quetzlcoatl "fame" recently. Harbinger is he
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:33pm Cecile:

  Thu. 11/5/09 2:35pm sahak:

  Thu. 11/5/09 2:40pm Matt:

Thanks for the King Crimson!!!
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:40pm TC Chuck:

First time I heard the cleaned up lizard, cool!
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:41pm ?:

holy sh*t. haven't heard this in approximately a million years. not since I was a pimply-faced lad of about 15. good call. teenage boys and former teenage boys everywhere are rejoicing.

did they have a mellotron on every record they ever did?
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:45pm Mark from Pompton Plains:

more or less. More, really.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:48pm Cecile:

yes, until they got to be a three-piece on Red, if I remember correctly.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:49pm Bad Ronald:

yes, they went trough more than a few transformations.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:50pm Ike:

"I can't tell when the mellotrons and jaw harps are telling the truth."
- They're not.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:50pm Kent Downing:

Scott, with that Flaming Fire song, you have brought me out of the depths of what was until that song, a dreadful day. Thanks. Ahh.... music.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:51pm BSI:

this forest creature makes the baby bsi grinny giddly....
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:52pm TC Chuck:

At least the K.C. through 1974 did. Even Lynrd Skynrd (Tuesday's Gone...) and Aerosmith (Dream On) did. The mellotron is a cool instrument.
  Thu. 11/5/09 2:54pm Bad Ronald:

yep, don't forget "Strawberry Fields Forever".
  Thu. 11/5/09 3:02pm Mark from Pompton Plains:

Yes, nor would one be well-adivsed to overlook "A Question of Balance," Moody Blues, even if it is a little softy
  Thu. 11/5/09 3:03pm Mark from Pompton Plains:

Great Show Scot, thanks.
  Thu. 11/5/09 3:03pm Ike:

Killer abuse of NJ 101.5 sample! Nice!
  Thu. 11/5/09 3:04pm MFPP:

  Thu. 11/5/09 3:04pm Talk radio caller:

Goddamn transsexuals stealing our jobs!
They should go back to Transylvania where they belong.
  Sat. 11/7/09 8:08am the hefty northern viking:

hey scott! alrune rod is not swedish "progg-rock", it's at most danish crack-progg-rock! :-) "augustin,...., mescalin", bwahah!!
