I'm gonna recommend two albums from Beggars opera here 'Act one' & 'Waters of change'.If you don't have em your bonkers.Beggars work after that kinda went down hill.Nice mellotron work from Mrs.Wolf on 'Waters' .

You pointed out the only two albums worth getting. However most progheads will include Pathfinder (which I find very Boring) and the albums after that one have little to do with prog, i gather.

Yes your perfectly correct there.''Pathfinder'' is boring & ''Get your dog off me'' is one of my most hated albums.They even sound like Deep purple on one track.

Actually , they sound like Mk I Purple in ACT ONE also. But also like early The Nice. Raymond track is maling many references to Blue Rondo Ala Turk.

You'll agree with me then Sean when i say that ''Water of change'' is there best work?

For me, "Pathfinder" is in the same class as "Act one" and "Waters..", but I do agree "Waters.. " was their best album.

GYDOM was very poor, with the exception of the cover of "Classical Gas", which was superbly done.

I like most Waters Of Change. Pathfinder is little poppy sometimes. I like Witch song most from Pathfinder - great singing.
