I have that 7" of 'Words' - it's credited to Bozzio & Cuccurullo. The B-side is a song called 'I Like Boys' - needless to say, I don't spin this side........(as much of a fox Dale was at the time.....)

I should have known better as I know both the Bee Gee's and MP's songs....what threw me was that some of the lyric websites credit the MP song as being written by the Gibb brothers.
 
Whoa is me....I still want to list an obscure prog fact.......I've been listening to the entire Weather Report (Jazz Rock/Fusion prog) catalog this year and wanted to know a bit more about Joe Zawinul so I read a few interviews he did. A great anecdote from one of them was Joe starting an interview with no holds barred comments about other musicians and music industry people. Commenting on certain individuals "in the most brutal way". The journalist was aghast and amazed thinking what a great story this is going to be. Turns out the tape recorders batteries were dead and Zawinul knew it but the interviewer didn't.

In the late seventies, Patrick Moraz almost joined a brazilian prog band!
The name of the band is Vimana and they released an EP. They also recorded a full LP but it was never released and it remains completely unheard even today. Patrick discovered the band and wanted the members to join him in a project callled "The Patrick Moraz Band". In fact, he called everyone but their singer and guitar player, Lulu Santos, which he despised. The other members disliked his attitude about Santos and decided to disband. Some people said that they actually rehearsed togheter but this more a legend than a fact.

After they disbanded, three of the member became very big acts in Brazil; their drummer, Lobão, composed widely known radio hits and today keeps doing very good music, sometimes prog-related. Ritchie, the lead singer of Vimana and an english man that came to live in Brazil, reached the top with a song called Menina Veneno. He is know as a one hit wonder but this song alone made him absurdely famous here. Lulu Santos, the guy Patrick Moraz hated, is the most successful one of the bunch, with lots of hit singles in the eighties and nineties. The guy plays guitar very well and his songs, albeit quite radio-friendly, are very interesting, sometimes flirting with jazzy chords and even proggy keyboards.

When Triumvirat were touring in the USA and playing the two suites of music from their Illusions On A Double Dimple album in 1974, sometimes during the piano solo section of the second suite "Mister Ten Percent", Jurgen Fritz would introduce a bit of different music than presented on the album, one time with a section of solo piano that would be later incorporated into "A Day In A Life" from 1976's Triumvirat album Old Loves Die Hard.

Nik Turner recorded a bunch of flute pieces inside the Great pyramid of Giza, and then brought them home with him to Wales. The album that popped out the other end was Xitintoday.

Took me awhile to get used to the narrative side of it, but now I just love it. Prefer it over anything that I've heard from Hawkwind to be honest.

I think Ozzy was the Poltergeist.
If you have sensitive and analytical sound equipment quality after market audio interconnects/cables make a HUGE difference in overall sound quality...Wider soundstage, reduced microphonics etc etc..

Now that is something...really something. Makes me want to go to Egypt even more.

Wishbone Ash, a band not known for a keyboard aspect, had a keyboard player on part of the tour for their "Locked In" album. The only document of that tour is a CD called "The King Will Come-Live", recorded in Davenport in the USA in '76.

...which annoyed PF immensely because had Medicine Head been a success they would have had to use the the working title of the album instead, which was Eclipse.
 
One of the tracks on the MH DSotM was titled "Back To The Wall"
And Seventies / sixties MOR crooner, Vince Hill, released an album called Wish You Were Here the same year as PF
