A very clever song with great arrangement.

It's a sound which is unique Thudders. I like Bill Bruford's drumming too, (I think he's on this track), and he did a great solo album years ago, which still survives!

Thomas, the Scroblena, and Myself, regularly sing Hearts of Oak, usually when we are traipsing round the Pinetum with JRT...

As for the Austrian March, well, it has to be said that it's a stirring piece, and probably the least known name for such a common bit of music.

Do you like stirring pieces...?

I only asked...

None so as this particular piece: -

Why does 5:15 do it for you? Assume I'm being thick here, soz. Bit of a drastic vid there.

I used to have a Yes album. I think it was compulsory at one time?

Electro-Kevin said...

A good one no doubt.

It was 'Going For The One'. Twas significant for reasons that may be revealed.....

Scrobs... said...

Pips, 'Going for the one' is an absolute fave here!

I bought it as a single 45 (hmph), and have always loved the drumming intro, the guitar bashing, and in fact the whole shebang!

The extended version is better, because Jon Anderson, keeps on singing different lines, and it goes on for ever.

I love it, and will - in honour of you, get the CD out, and play it non-stop for the next three hours!!!

Scrobs... said...

And Pips, the 5.15 is the time in the recording, where the guitar is played, probably with a bit of fleshy palm damping down on the strings, and that sound - to an aging rocker like me, is just perfect!

Scrobs... said...

'Yes' are up there for me Elecs.

Tuscan Tony likes them too, but he's on Twitter all the time now, and I can't ask him...

Scrobs... said...

Thomas!

I have recovered after a quiet reverie...

That song was in the charts when I was taking my Common Entrance...

Philipa said...

Ah. Thanks, Scrobs :-)
