Anybody hear the song "Gravedigger" from the band Janus? It comes off their debut album of the same name from 1972. It's an epic 20 minute progressive song, but soft and beautiful throughout... very haunting tune. I love it! I haven't heard the album that it comes from, but apparently it's regarded as an obscure rock classic. Anyway, I have some youtube links below for the song in case you're interested:

A masterpiece !!!

Yes I bought the cd from Greg Walker at Synphonic....long ago. Somewhere , at tap dead center of the pieceSmile.....maybe 12 minutes into the piece is an adaption of "Spanish Ballad" (anonymous), a piece that has been popular throughout Italy for centuries.
