I actually have the original magazine, and in not-too-bad of shape for a newspaper over 40 yrs old!

Alquin is a good one too!
I'd say Traffic myself. 
From the list: I should think that over before voting.

If it's about sax being crucial for the band's sound it has to be VdGG, regardless of many other great performers.

That's the performance where they were forced to do 'Plague', section by section ??  You can see Hammill's 'grand finale' when he looks at the camera as if to say a sarcastic 'happy now' as he raises his glass ??

One only needs to listen to VDGG's 'Trisector' or 'A grounding In Numbers' (both still great albums IMO), or 'Alt', to hear something 'special' is missing...............

Solution by far.
 
I don't like saxes sounding sinister at all.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

Not on the list but I love early Roxy Music with Andy Mackay.

VdGG, though any band with Jorgen Munkaby in has got to be considered as well, I particularly love his playing with Ihsahn.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005
