Changes (analog, 1972?, studio-w/false start)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Studio cut- probably mid-1972. False start at the beginning.

Brad on Vocals... incredible voice, but too much singing and smoking took it's toll on him. Greg on Keys, Peter on Guitar, Bobby on Bass, Jeff on Drums, and Brad on vocals. Done on the Teac 4-channel recorder with Simul-Sync. Not nearly as much compression from the overdubs as I don't think we went beyond 2 generations of overdubs.

Lyrics
You can not disguise, Life here Realized.

What you're seeing man, future shock at hand,
Poison in the air, nuclear burnout scare.
You should live so fast, only in your past!

tight and blazingly fas
Thank you. I listen to these tunes and think to myself "if I tried going up and down the keyboard that fast today I think my fingers would fall off". Of course, today we can record the passages at a slower speed then speed them up digitally and it sounds natural.

This has a bit more of a Yes vibe than some of the other stuff you posted. A lot of early Yes flavor in many of the riffs. Particularly the contrary motion lines starting at 3:40. The drumming is very Brufordish.

Yes vibe
I was going to mention just that when I posted it... I could envision Jon Anderson singing this tune. To this day I still listen to Yes every day, and have just about every album or recording that they made. My favorites are their early years.

Thanks so very much! As mentioned above, this has a sort of "Yes" vibe, yet we wrote it around the same time as they released some of their greatest works (in my mind).

lived the rock lifestyle
I have always told myself, and my children and their children, that we create our own reality. We went to school, church, family events, etc. but when we were out on the road driving from town to town, we felt like we were rockstars, so we walked the walk and talked the talk. Great time. Great friends.

We drove up to 16 hours from one show to the next, and as I driver I seldom slept. We stayed in some pretty sleezy motels (we would always open the motel room door real fast to see if we saw anything scamper under to bed or into the walls, and listened for "crunching" when we walked in (cockroaches crunch when you step on them). We ate in truck stops, and like Bob Seger said in "Turn the Page", got the cracks about our hair, our clothes, etc.

However, I would have never traded what we experienced for anything else.

I really like that old-style uplifting style of prog. I like modern prog also, but there is an interesting difference between the old up and new down styles --- changes, I guess. Very enjoyable, as always.

old prog, new prog
I never really thought of the differences before, but you are so right. I guess the late 60's and early 70's were more of an "up" period, and today our world and lives have many different issues troubling us that we feel (and write) down. Thanks for the comments and of course, for listening.
