Olias of Sunhillow is New Age in the exact same way that Led Zeppelin I is prog.  Their entrance stamps are backdated.
 
NukeExclamation That's what puzzles me: When I looked in this thread for the last time, Fish had just a few more votes than Olias, but now it is 112 against 21. I don't know if the Frenchmen are behind this, though...

112 ???? I have voted Fish, but I'm not sure that he has sold so many copies Confused
That's really strange, even because I see no sense in bribing in a poll in general and on this one in particular.
Who likes Fish would probably like Olias, too.

Effectively I don't understand the meaning of "French Men".  A hacker maybe?

I'm quite surprised Fish is so far ahead. I like both but I think I love Olias a bit more.
 
PS - I've seen rumours of JA recording Olias II.

I see this poll allows multiple votes, that explains a lot.

I gave a few votes for Olias, but seeing Fish was behind I gave it a few more. LOL

That's why I said some sort of Proto New Age Wink
I don't have a problem with that.  Some others that fit that bill: Sally Oldfield's Water Bearer, Shadowfax's Watercourse Way, Jon and Vangelis' Short Stories, and yes, even Fish Out Of Water.
