Non-euclidean Glass Hammer forum

Catastrophic collapse situation indeed. I'm over on another topic thinking about all of this 2001:aso stuff, and somebody brings up Ritchie Blackmore's latest band. That gets me thinking about my first Deep Purple album: The Book of Taliesyn . It had a unique version of the song River Deep, Mountain...

2001 influenced music

Hey Fred, Anyone with affection for 2001 is OK in my book. I saw it at the Summit Theater in Detroit in 1967 in Cinerama . I was sitting in the front row and felt like the whole theater was moving.

A Musical Odyssey

As long as we are looking for influences in TIS...

some more thoughts

Well said, Razor. BTW you've got great taste in music... "Nice," "King Crimson", Barclay James Harvest and Genesis, Hendrix, Stevie Ray. Johnny Winter, Roy Buchanan, Rory Gallagher and Clapton and Santana I've got just about all of these on vinyl upstairs (and some CD, too). You don't hear much talk...

Critics: real and pretender

Paul is a critic in his own eye. But Sam Karnick is the real thing (and one of the very best in my opinion). A few excerpts of his comments on TIS: Side 1: However, I am coming to the conclusion that the two songs are truly brilliant—classics of the form. I believe that I will require another half-d...
