First and foremost, try to get your head around the early 70’s, the popularity in those days of a concept album (if you are from the 80’s or later, ask your mum or dad) and a record company giving free reign to a band to ‘explore their musical artistry to the fullest’. It’s a little like trying to understand why dinosaurs don’t still rule the earth.
It was a fashion. Heaven knows why but clearly record companies thought they could perhaps capture the romanticism of a novel, or a dream or a drug fuelled experience and that the public would fall for it. And you know what? Hell, we did.
