Enjoyed
Glad you enjoyed a trip in the "wayback machine" Imagine our surprise when we found we were featured on a radio program 30 years after we had sent out the records.

Thanks for listening!

I like how it has a dash of sunny 60s psychedelia in with the prog. That and the lovely warm vintage production job made this a really fun listen, cheers.

What a trip!
Thank you. I am almost 60 years old and most of what I write and record is "prog rock- 2010". Regarding the "trip" comment... according to Captain Kirk in one of the Star Trek movies "he took too much LDS in the 60's".
Prog Rock Rules... and it's even better if you can play the exact same arrangement LIVE!

Ultra cool!
Thanks- we really loved playing original music, and really hoped we would have "made it big". We were pleased to see that we still get airplay, and we found that the original 45RPM records go for $50 and more on E-Bay and other sites.

Ha ha! AWESOME!
Geez... I used to listen to music like this all the time back in the day. If I'd have heard you back in the 70's I'd surely have been a fan.

Great post greg!

Be well friend!

Thanks Michael! We had a lot of fun back in "the old days", and I still love Prog music- wish we have more of it being produced now. As always I appreciate the listen and the comments. Greg

good/enjoyed/diggin this!
Thanks for taking a trip in the "way-back machine" to listen to 4 kids from minnesota hopin' for that big break. We had the hair, had the bell-bottoms, HiWatt stacks, and even a little talent. Fun to hear it played on the radio 30 years after we released it.
