And peri-Gabriel Genesis had examples of this as well… Supper’s Ready from Foxtrot has a portion named Apocalype in 9/8/ It’s divided into 3+2+4 at that. The first post-Gabriel Genesis album, Trick of the Tail, is chock full of this stuff: Dance on a Volcano is in 7/8. **Robbery, Assault & Battery ** has a keyboard solo which alternates between 7/8 and 6/8.
ELP’s Tarkus (the song/suite) is in many times: Eruption is in 10/8, Iconoclast is in 10/8, Manticore is in 9/8.
Kansas did some of this - the title track to Song for America has an extended instrumental passage in 9/8.
Frank Zappa had loads of this stuff, as RealityChuck notes: Other examples include Don’t Eat The Yellow Show (7/8), Echidna’s Arf (portions in 5/8), and Don’t You Ever Wash That Thing ([2+5rest]+[3+5rest]+[5+5rest]+ [2+5rest]+[3+5rest]+[5+5rest]+[6+10rest]…) :rolleyes:
You got that right. I’ve never seen any King Crimson music in other than tab, because Fripp won’t publish it. They use odd time signatures more often than not. For a treat , try figuring out what the time signature of Starless from Red is, especially the rocking part about 90 seconds before the end, prior to the restatement of the opening theme. Yikes.
