The Spin Off #1: In the Court of the Crimson King

Well, friends, it’s finally here: my new side-project podcast, The Spin Off! It’s a monthly podcast where Jeremiah Traeger from The SJW Circle Jerk, Chris Watson from The Podunk Polymath, and I review our favorite prog rock albums. In our first official episode, we review King Crimson’s 1969 debut “In the Court of the Crimson King,” arguably the first prog rock album.

    Okay good. I was wondering…

    I love that there’s a podcast doing this, btw, and that you’re the one hosting it. I may or may not be using y’all for ideas for future Great Guitar Solos posts (with credit, obvs).

    Finally had a chance to listen uninterrupted, and it was time well spent. Thanks to all for an excellent discussion.

    This album was my intro to prog rock when it came out (I’m old ;)), and it blew me away. I was lukewarm on the next two albums, but Islands, Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, Starless and Bible Black and Red are masterpieces exceeding In the Court, IMO.

    At the risk of being presumptuous, the albums I’d love to see covered apart from those I named would include everything by Yes from The Yes Album to Relayer, Genesis from Foxtrot to The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Gentle Giant’s The Power and the Glory, and ELP’s Brain Salad Surgery.

    I also love Jethro Tull, but I never really considered them prog rock. But then I was never that great with genres.
