Kissing a Prog: Robert John Godfrey’s Fall of Hyperion

I don’t know anything about this crazy prog extravaganza from 1974, except that I started listening to it and … I think I sort of love it.

Well, ok, I found a few things online about the album, and the one odd factoid that stood out for me was that the guy playing guitar on the album was a very young James Honeyman Scott, whom you may recall was later in a little  band called The Pretenders. Pretty much none of his distinctive later style is evident on this album, though, which is actually pretty light on guitar overall.
