    I'm sure there were *lots* of drugs involved in that, but the guitar world is better for it

    Ironically, Starcasters became kind of collectible because they were such a bust on release and are thus kind of rare.

    I was so into Yes in '76 I basically didn't listen to anything else, and these pics remind me a lot of the Yes album covers of the time. Very Roger Dean and cheap Mexican brown weed inspired

The last four-six minutes of the main cut on that album that got released as a single is one of my favorite songs of all time.



    Also obviously a huge fan of all of Hawkwind's album covers from that era.

    I was fortunate to see them bring back "Gates of Delirium" on the Masterworks tour in 2000. I don't even have the words to express how awesome it was to hear that in concert. No other rock concert I've ever attended brings what the "Soon" section does in concert--the only comparable experience I've had was a live performance of Mahler's Ninth Symphony. I can only imagine how great that piece was in concert when they were at their prime in 1974-76.

    It's actually topical to this thread, too, because Steve Howe used a Telecaster Deluxe on the entire Relayer album--that being another of Fender's ill-fated '70s experiments.

    Which is actually funny, because the Deluxes have a fair bit of following these days, and they just reissued the Starcaster as well

    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I believe Steve mostly played a modded late 50's whiteguard Tele, but with a PAF added in the neck slot and the Telecaster Deluxe 'Les Paul' type 3 way switch in the upper bout added. The regular Deluxe had 2 hums but Steve almost always had the single in the bridge no matter the Tele. I mean, he may own 50 Teles so its splitting hairs anyway...

    I was never a huge fan of "Soon" as a single edit, but I can see why they did it. One of my favorite parts of "Gates" is in the 'War' section, where Jon and Alan White are banging on hubcaps they bought on the way to the studio to make the 'War' sound more realistic

    Those are awesome. Awful, but awesomely so.
