Hello everyone !

I'm curious to know what is your favourite song from their Stained Glass Stories album. For those who don't know them, they were an american prog band from the '70 (probably the best band from there from this era) They were certainly very dark and mellotron-oriented and I'm pretty sure bands like Anglagard got some influences from them. A must for any lovers of King Crimson that's for sure.

I love Gong (the song). Never really cared for the vocals too much but that one is instrumental. For anyone who hasn't heard it:

Gong is my favourite too. The vocal remind me of a lesser Derek Shulman ;)

I went with the opening track although I really like them all. Just an excellent album with loads of mellotron and prominant bass.

The Search is a masterpiece and gets my vote.  Always reminds me of an American take on The Fountain of Salmacis.

Such a great album! I have to listen to it again to vote because they are all equally good, but yes Gong is stunning!
