    A prog covers thread
    Man, I loves me some cover toons. In the last couple of days, I've picked up 2 cds that cover Genesis and Yes. Fun listening

    Today I found the Genesis one, Supper's Ready, with these bands: Cairo, Magellan, Annie Haslam, Pete Bardens, Crack The Sky, John Goodsall w/ Michael Zentner, and others.

    I'll post some of the Yes highlights when I get home.

    How about you? Found anything good, cover-wise? Oh, yeah, I also have that Rush cover cd, Working Man.

    There was a Dream Theater release in 2009 called BLACK CLOUDS AND SILVER LININGS...............they had a third disc of cover tunes that they did of other people.
    It was really well-done.............

    1. "Stargazer" Ronnie James Dio, Ritchie Blackmore Rainbow 8:10
    2. "Tenement Funster"/"Flick of the Wrist"/"Lily of the Valley" Roger Taylor
    Freddie Mercury Queen 8:17
    3. "Odyssey" Steve Morse Dixie Dregs 7:59
    4. "Take Your Fingers From My Hair" Randy Jackson Zebra 8:18
    5. "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part Two" Robert Fripp King Crimson 6:30
    6. "To Tame a Land" Steve Harris Iron Maiden 7:15

    Total length:
    46:29

    Also included in the three disc special edition are instrumental tracks of the songs. All tracks have been altered from their original versions.[25]

    Good pick, I'm pretty sure I have this on a hard drive somewhere, I'll have to dig it out. They also did A Change Of Seasons, of course, with The Big Medley and other not so proggy covers.
