More peak musical performances. This is Todmobile, from Iceland, achieving a landmark performance of "Awaken" by YES, featuring YES lead singer Jon Anderson. With choral and orchestral accompaniment, this is THE version of this magnificent composition.

Another epic Todmobile achievement. Their version of the Genesis classic "Supper's Ready", featuring Steve Hackett and with orchestral and choral accompaniment.

Them are us too---Floor

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Them-are-us-too-floor-lyrics

This'll be part of my Itkovian "FST"(fandom soundtrack)
Faith is the truth of passion. Since no passion is more true than another, faith is the truth of nothing.

BFK is heavily into Big Big Train at the moment. I've already rhapsodized on the romantic gem "Curator Of Butterflies", and here's another marvelous track:

"East Coast Racer" by BBT. If you're interested in the story of steam-powered locomotion, watch the video.

If this nostalgia for a vanishing time has any appeal, the CD is "English Electric, Parts One and Two". Get the double CD set; you won't regret it.

More Big Big Train, this being a nicely produced music video of the song "Folklore". Anyone familiar with the original film "The Wicker Man" (not the Nicolas Cage travesty...) may find the hairs on his or her neck rising and chills up the spine.

And, since the true test of music is live performance, here's BBT performing "East Coast Racer" in August 2015.

Bought my first gig tickets since my 20's.

21 st anniversary of Massive Attack's Mezzanine album so they are playing one night in Glasgow. Really looking forward to it.

The album in question, i think track 3 might be the famous one.
