5 stars I think it's appropriate to say this album is real milestone in their history. I followed them until early 1980's, got the vinyls and collected those in CD thinking "I'll listen those songs with zero scratches"... now I miss those noises with much more sound fidelity!

But I was astounded these days when I watched on Youtube the Going for the One Sessions 1976 with 3 parts. One thing is to enjoy Awaken and other is to see those young guys making rehearsals from it, along with the other songs and full of jam sessions. This is history!

part1: Awaken from tuned percussion to grand finale; Steve performance on Turn of the century; many fun interactions .

part2: jam with Rick and Jon on harp; jam with Alan and Chris; Steve rehearsals; Wonderous Stories clip; Steve pedal steel guitar details on Going for the One; Rick adjustments on final part of Awaken; Parallel instrumental in Vevey church with pipe organ.

part3: A complete Parallel's rehearsals with a brief spot on cristalline 2nd voice from Chris; Going for the one, here again Squire's 2nd voice ; everyone with a percussion in Awaken; again Squire conducting Parallels instrumental; jam with Rick and Jon on harp; Steve classical guitar end on Turn of the century.
