sexcellent choices darling Beer

pre-Dull Tull- With You there to help me.. 

the best thing they ever did IMO..

Floyd - God that is tough...  hate to do it.. and not chose Cymbaline.. but have to give it up to Us and Them.  Pure perfection there.

Yes - The Ancient

Genesis - Cinema Show

KC - Indiscipline

ELP - coin flip between Toccata and The Barbarian. For pure perfection..  giving it to Toccata today. Only ELP could have pulled that piece off...

the "big six" are not my big six, so I come up with some unexpected choices:

Genesis - Waiting Room
Pink Floyd - Seamus
ELP - Benny the Bouncer
Jethro Tull - The Story of the Hare who Lost His Spectacles
King Crimson - Moonchild
Yes - No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed
