about the band, just thought the cover looked interesting) and
it's probably still my favorite. The 2-disc _Afterswish_ set
is a good collection of their early stuff. _Waterfall Cities_
is my favorite of their more recent CDs. BTW, I only own five
of their albums, but I've borrowed the rest from a co-worker
who's a big Ozrics fan - IMHO, you really only need a few of
their albums. They're all good, but they tend to be very similar.
Maybe get _Afterswish_, plus one album from the early/mid-90s and
one recent one. Then if you really want more, there's plenty to
I'd love to see one of the prog fests get Ozric Tentacles to play
(preferrably NEARFest or ProgDay, so I can go see it).
Oh yeah, if you haven't already heard Gong's Teapot trilogy, get
that and see where the Ozrics got their inspiration.
