#229 – self-titled by Tomorrow

Though they have been nearly forgotten by history, Tomorrow were considered one of the first-generation figureheads of the British psychedelic music scene, along with the Soft Machine and Pink Floyd.  In the long run, the most notable thing about Tomorrow is that their guitarist was Steve Howe, the six-string wizard of Yes and Asia who has long been atop my personal guitar pedestal.  I saw Yes for the first time at Boston’s Orpheum Theater when I was about fourteen, benefitting from my cousin’s sudden illness.  As is the case with so many of my formative live music memories, this turn of fate changed my musical palette and introduced me to the heights of prog rock mastery, an experience from which I have never recovered.  This was definitely a major turning point in my life, and one that informed my decision-making about my future career aspirations.
