Only Because of You is about the only genuine solo classic I have heard from him.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Only Because of You. I love the melancholy feel, the guitar solo and and the mournful female vocals. A great tribute to John Lennon.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Only Because Of  You - one of the most beautiful and melancholic gems ever made.

I like " Open Door" but none light my fire TBH.

Only Because of You (although I committed as streams Had A Dream and Death and the Zoo, because Only Because of You is in atmosphere quite similar to Death and the Zoo.)

I voted for 'Only Because...', but my fave Hodgson-penned epic is 'Give Me Love, Give Me Life'. It would have made a great Supertramp epic, even a big Yes or Kansas epic. Consistent melodic drive, well-ordained morif developments and shifts, and a powerful rhythmic architecture.
