4 stars A rise smile upon my face when I saw the late Duncan Browne added to the archives. It was not too long ago I launched a topic on the forum where I mentioned several prog related songs (in my view, done by not yet added artists) asking the readers if they agreed with me there. One of the songs was this single from 1978 Wild Places, a song I absolutely adore since it was created.

I mainly love the darkish instrumental part in the second half of the song but also the soft start with the acoustic guitar and the genius bass tones. I mean this song is actually magnificent from start to finish and will always be a treasure for me until my last breath. B-side Camino Real isn't half as good I have to say and it prevents me to give this vinyl single the full score. But Wild Places alone could have counted on 5 stars for sure, that's how good it is. Simply one of the best classic rock songs with progressive leanings in history. You bet !
