Both Jethro Tull and Focus were in their deep prog-rock phases when those tracks came out, both took influences from medieval music, both used Hammond organs. (Tull featured a flute, Focus sometimes a lute, not a big 'f'-in difference in that respect as such ;)).
I'm not surprised that you like Tull actually, what with their folkish tones.

Yep. Interestingly I also see something similar with Mike Oldfield (medieval music influence) and I never considered him belonging to the progressive rock but I guess after all he does.

Nice link by the way, the cross-over is quite evident, esp. after around 2'15". Maybe the genre could be North European Pop (ex UK)? :)

The name just per analogy... I think what is needed is an element of improvisation or story telling exceeding what is in the typical short songs. Or perhaps this is a progressive rock anyway? The candy floss has to be still there.

Tubular Bells was from the same period, and also prog rock. You mentioning him has made me realise that his was probably the first prog rock music I was exposed to. At the time it seemed pretty amazing. But it didn't take too long to start to feel 'Yeah ok, so you can play 24 different instruments... is this just some personal showcase of that fact?'. Can't say I've heard anything else of his, I think his debut left me scarred... :)

Yes I get your point. No I think Prog Rock tends to be more folkloric conjuring up images of minstrels, jesters, and the like. Prog Pop, now I understand your parameters, works very well I think.

Sorry the audio only seems to be from the right channel...

Again think will be c'73
I rather improbably got into them in Japan, where a Japanese label had re-released all of their albums!

Just came back from the Cranberries concert in the Indoor Stadium. Very bad sound quality effectively spoiled what could be a very nice performance.

Blimey that's a shame. I wonder how they managed to get it so wrong.

First I though it was me (getting older like it or not) but then asked my wife who is younger and she had the same impression. Sounded like they put too much power, flatten the characteristics (overdrive) and finally also the speaker seemed close to their limits. Pity.

actually, you can just let a youtube "play" in the background with music muted and it will be cached. you could then replay the video later on.

of course, caching the whole video can take ages on dial-up speeds. :P
