My 3 year old is an enthusiastic Prog listener though only when we are in the car. At certain times, he will suddenly blurt out "Let's listen to Prog", and in goes the ELP.

He has listened to all of the roughs of my upcoming album and isn't shy about letting me know what he thinks. Every time he has panned something, I have changed it.

Huge fan of his early jazz stuff, but "Soothing sounds for Baby" is a profound misnomer for his electronic experiments.

I grew up with a rather eclectic father. My first prog experience was Gentle Giant's 'Acquirring the Taste' when I was 7, and I liked it. But believe it or not, the thing that caused me to realize I loved music was the 80s Doctor Who theme.

Genesis is probably the kind of music that will cause massive waves of nostalgia when you listen to it as an adult after having heard it as a child, so I applaud that. You might want to play him Wind & Wuthering. That seems like an album made for childhood nostalgia.


Not really aiming at nostalgia- our eldest is autistic.

He likes slightly zany music.  I mean, listen to the middle section of "Supper's Ready" and all of "Get 'Em Out by Friday."  It's goofy.

I'm thinking about letting him have Fragile next week if he is comfortable in letting me change CDs.  I think he would get a kick out of "Five Per Cent of Nothing."

Thank you for sharing that!  I have friends with autistic spectrum kids, I love 'em all!  Very neat, creative children, they are a gift for all of us to appreciate.

My son has asked to hear "Gentle Giant" (based on hearing the name of this band only).  And he rejected his mother's Christmas CD for it.  Big smile

So I threw in The Power and the Glory for him.  Cool

After the first track, he said, "Daddy, I'm tired of you being in here with me.  I want to hear them alone."

Awww!
I have to admit, their name probably contributed to why I first listened to them too. There's something about that idea of a Gentle Giant that I like.

If only I had discovered Gentle Giant earlier.  I was already in my late teens when I picked up my first GG album, Octopus.  I think it was the perfect place to start.  I have since fleshed out my collection chronologically in either direction, back to their debut and up to The Power and the Glory.  Interestingly, of all those albums, my least favorite is In A Glass House, which is their highest rated studio album here on PA.  It seems a bit meandering, less focused than their other efforts.  I do quite like The Power and the Glory, but I think I prefer the first four albums to anything that followed.
Rock On,
