Playlist - 24 July 2021

A special lockdown edition of Seasons Of Change tonight.

In the first hour, starting 8pm, a set of epic-length songs from various parts of Europe - somehow also excluding the usual classic epic songs such as "Close to the edge" (Yes), "Supper's ready" (Genesis), "2112" (Rush), "Nine feet underground" (Caravan) or even the excellent epics from more recent repeat offenders such as The Flower Kings, Spock's Beard, Unitopia, Southern Empire and Transatlantic ("All of the above").

Then, in the second hour starting 9pm, we turn the clock back 15 years to June/July 2006, when the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra performed a well-received series of concerts featuring the music of Pink Floyd.

Karnivool with a track from "Sound Awake", almost exactly 10 years ago.

The national "Decade Of Sound Awake" tour of course, which had already been postponed from 2020,  has now been cancelled due to COVID (except for the two Fremantle dates back in March) and so the Adelaide concert by Karnivool which was scheduled for last Saturday night didn't happen...

There's something in the water over in Perth, it seems - "psychedelic folk rock" from The Lammas Tide:

There are some promo videos currently floating around for the latest Transatlantic album, but this live performance of Transatlantic's ludicrously long, single-song, album from 2010 may be better value...
