I referenced Gentle Giant earlier.

That was the sort of thing I was thinking about.


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Yes, Chris Squire/Steve Howe do a phenomenal job on so much of their catalog.  They have pulled it off equally well live as well while playing complex parts.  

 

And yes, gasp, the Eagles.  As close to perfection you can get.

^^^ They were great harmonizers. And so were ABBA! :) Those two girls were decent singers on their own but they were magic singing together.

I hesitate to call them backup singers, but Kate and Cindy did some super great harmonizing with the B-52s.  Here's one of my favorites from way back when...Kate is 70 now!
