It’s been just over three years since I lost good friend and co-worker Steve to skin cancer, and I thought it appropriate to dedicate this Friday’s random 10 to his memory, and include some tracks which he introduced to me.
Steve and I had a whole lot of overlapping interests, including prog rock. Growing up in St. Louis, he was introduced to several bands that I hadn’t had as much access to in my past, and we had a nice CD exchange program going for a while.
- “Remember the Future, Part 1” – Nektar, Remember the Future
- “Sylvia” – Focus, Focus 3
- “Illusions on a Double Dimple, Part 1” – Triumvirat, Illusions on a Double Dimple
- “13/8” – Gong, The History & Mystery of Gong
- “Flesh Number One (Beatle Dennis)“, Robyn Hitchcock, I Wanna Go Backwards
- “Focus II” – Focus – Moving Waves
- “Super Strut” – Deodato, Deodato 2
- “Lady in the Lake” – Starcastle, Starcastle
- “Who We Are” – Camel, I Can See Your House from Here
- “Spartacus” – Triumvirat, Spartacus
Please, do periodic skin self-evaluations, for those you love. We miss you, Steve.
