Old Stuff Friday: Prog Rock Edition

Jethro Tull, "Bouree"... from my favorite Jethro Tull album, Stand Up



Traffic, "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys"... hard to name a favorite Traffic album, they were all so good.



Pink Floyd, "Welcome to the Machine"... is this the pinnacle of prog rock?



Yes, "Yours Is No Disgrace"... or maybe this is.
