Good choice. Hot August Night it is.

I will check in later for the next suggestion.
Since you like music from that era, I've always thought that one of the best concept albums ever, with both good music and a coherent story, is To Our Children's Children's Children, by the Moody Blues.

Great suggestion! I bought this on vinyl when it was current, played it to death. I don't think I've heard it in >30 years though.


Hehehe, dang. I can't imagine resisting the urge to listen to it for that long. One of my happiest moments in a public bathroom was looking over at the window frame and seeing "Wir fahren fahren fahren auf der Autobahn"* written there.

Since we seem to have some intersection in taste: If you've got extra cleaning to do, or you wanna have a highball after you're done. I would recommend Cal Tjader's Latin Kick. I don't know if it's on Spotify, but I would still recommend the YouTube link, because that's a great album cover.

*Mangled though, the graffiti artist was as fluent in German as I am.

Indeed, thanks for reminding me. Tells me it's been too long since I actually fired up the album. "Subdivisions" was the single, but IMHO not even the best track.

Don't know if either is on Spotify but

Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
Gwar - Hell-o

OK - I have varied musical tastes; I know that already.

The latter actually has very much a cool, Brubeck "Take Five" kind of feel to it. And the former is kind of a folky truncated waltz (interspersed with 6/8 in the bridges). Maybe not that interesting given the prog rock suggestions here, which can get a little crazy in that vein (much of "Subdivisions" is in 7), but pretty cool for more poppy psychadelic-folk songwriting.
