    Meddle, a great choice for sure.

    I saw Yes play Gates live 12/1/74 at the Assembly Center, the first time I ever heard the song.

    It was about a month before Relayer was released and it absolutely blew our minds.

    Oh yeah, the days of cheap bad Meskin burbage that you would stupidly risk a felony for, cheap beer and freshmen floozies, and $250 per semester student fees.

    What I wouldn't give to go back there RIGHT FREAKIN' NOW. :thumb:

    EXCEPT I would bring today's sticky icky back there... :hihi:

    They had a poll several years ago to list the best-10 and worst-10 rock songs of the rock era.

    MacArthur Park was number one on both lists. You love it or you hate it.

    You and I are the only ones to remember it when it was released. :grin:

    What's amazing is the number of superstars who covered it. Diana Ross & the Supremes, Glen Campbell, Vic Damone, Sammy Davis Jr, Frank Sinatra, The Four Tops, Liza Minnelli, and Waylon Jennings.

    Nope, me too.

    STILL makes me barf, whatever version.

    Shows you what bad taste all who covered it had , IMO.
