and thanks for the tip on the new King Crimson-- always really liked 
them- bought 'in the court of the crimson king' recently because I 
liked it so much when originally released. Sounds like a great 
experience seeing Yes, also one of my favorite bands back then- 
really liked the album art. ...and Procol Harum too, though they 
just sort of faded away, except for Robin Trower who did a couple 
albums in the 80's I think...
