I picked these two bands because they're both "one hit wonders", so to say, each of them released only one album and then disappeared.

Hey, but these albums are masterpieces! (IMHOpinion.)

I might be very wrong here, but I think both albums (and bands) are somewhere "in the middle" between well-known Big Six  and totally unknown obscure artists - for an average PA proghead visitor.

Zeuhl vs. Canterbury. Oh well, they're both somewhat, ehm...jazzy.

Which one do you prefer?

Unfortunately, I haven't acquired "Eros" yet (it isn't easy to find it, is it?). I've just listened to one piece until now (here on the Archives), which definitely sounded amazing. But I have "Space Shanty" (as vinyl) and I love it (like every Prog album Dave Stewart is involved in).

I'll listen to both of them later today to refresh my mind (I forgot how they both sounded like) and vote.

EDIT:
I'll go with Khan, but honestly I'm not much of a fan of them.

Some great Hillage stuff on the Khan LP.

I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

I've listened to both albums, even if not as intensively as to others, and they're undoubtedly both great. However, I'd say that Khan are more my cup of tea sound-wise, so I voted for them.

Not a fair poll... Too difficult!!!!... I think Eros is a little bit better than Space Shanty but is just my opinion...

My vote goes to Dün, really good album and hard to find, very unusual sound, so they could win by a bit...but they did the album in the early 80's, so that's why their sound could be more developed, and if the album would have been released in the early 70's it could have won by more in this poll...

but Khan did a really good album too, even though it's original material, I think it's more traditional and straight-up Prog because the album was made in 1972, and that's a bit more of credit to Khan. Thumbs%20Up
