Listening now to the epic title song to "Tarkus , the second studio album in June1971 which followed quickly after their stunning 1970 debut, with Greg Lake's voice delicately yet nimbly bounding along to Keith Emerson's piano runs, it's clear that Emerson Lake and Palmer were much less "Be Bop a Lula" in their melodic grandeur and much more "Andrew Lloyd Weber". Here In the Studio is the story in their own words of progressive rock's first supergroup.

Led Zeppelin III appeared October 5, 1970 with surprisingly little notice. Containing "The Immigrant Song","Gallows Pole", and "Since I've Been Loving You", Led Zeppelin III also planted exotic seeds of sounds in "Friends" with its Middle Eastern orchestration, which would skip several subsequent albums only to germinate with legendary impact on Physical Grafitti . My guests Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and Led Zeppelin "III" recording engineer at Ardent Studio in Memphis, Terry Manning, tell the story In the Studio.

It seems that stardom for The Police had occurred in the UK after the release of their second album, "Regatta de Blanc" , but mainstream popularity in the U.S. still eluded them until October 1980's "Zenyatta Mondatta".

In late 1970 the world into which the Birmingham England band Black Sabbath quickly rose to popularity with their second album, "Paranoid", felt increasingly like a dangerous place. In this classic rock interview original Black Sabbath singer / lyricist Ozzy Osbourne has fond memories of those days when he and his mates from the working-class neighborhood Aston decided to ditch their trendy blues music, cut the band down from a 6-piece to four, and started doing what Ozzy characterizes in this classic rock interview as "spooky music".

John Mellencamp's "Scarecrow" album released in August 1985 was loaded with hits, including "Small Town","Lonely Ol' Night", and "R.O.C.K. in the USA". His list of Top 20 hit songs is extensive enough to require the double-disc "Words and Music" compilation, but it was the album tracks starting with Scarecrow's "Minutes to Memories", worthy of inclusion in the great Paul Simon songbook, which revealed his songcraft to me.
