CHAD VANGAALEN: "MOLTEN LIGHT"

Calgary-based artist / songwriter Chad VanGaalen offers up this little tremulous-voiced delight (complete w/ homemade vid) from a couple years back.



Not so keen on some of his other stuff, but this one catches a nicely sour mood.

EAST-END PUB PIANOS ON PROG RECORDS (PART 2)

My friend Mark reminded me today that there's a pub piano on Rick Wakeman's "Merlin".

"Actually," he said, with wry comic timing, "there's a pub piano on all of his records".

A very murky recording, this, but the pub piano appears about 3-and-a-half mins in. And again, as a reprise, on the last couple bars (ha! "bars" - geddit!!? ).



He liked pubs, did old Rick.
