    1: And his name in the same font. Lower case helvetica? Seemed revolutionary at the time. And my fave was "Melt". What were the others? Raindrops? Can't remember the other 2.

    2: Led Zep did the same thing for first four.

    3: Ash Armstrong , re fondling Gabriel's tukkus. You always have the best rock stories. Re Sledge hammer, this may give you a headache but have you heard Harry Styles cover the song on the Howard Stern Show with his band? Pretty darned good. Nails the phrasing.

      Car, Scratch, Melt and Security.

      Led Zeppelin released Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin III and [Untitled] aka Led Zeppelin IV or Four Runes, so not quite the same.

        I've always thought of Tormato as Tor, which sounds pretty cool to me, and Keystudio as Mind Drive.

          Never liked the title 'Keystudio'- like, of course it's from a studio - it's new songs recorded in a studio ain-it! Actually whenever I think of Keys To Ascension I always refer to the studio tracks and never the live portion of it. When they collected the studio part together and re-released it as Keystudo, I think it should have been called 'Keys To Ascension', officially defining that material as 'Keys To Ascension' and the live stuff should have been re-released separately as 'Live In San Obispo'.

            From day one I thought "Homeworld" should have been the title.

              I think 'Keys To Ascension' WAS the original title of the studio album - BEFORE the record company chopped it up and added the live sections.

                Weren't they gunna call it KNOW. (?)

                The only retitlin' I feel strongly about would be "That,That Is" . "Gangland Symphony" is better.

                The Quest was gonna be called The Owl Pass as it was linked to Roger's paintin' and linked lyrically to TIB. But the record company wanted a more generic title. ( a rumour I'm tryin' to start. Based on Roger callin' his exhibition with TQ cover, The Owl Pass. At Tradin' Boundaries. )

                  I was thinking the same, exact thing. In fact I had written all the album names down when I saw Yorkshire had quoted you.

                    DissUnion would be the perfect title for the album that Jonathan Elias butchered.

                      That’s a bit onesided to put it mildly...

                        "Onward" was my choice, ideally with a Roger Dean cover. With the benefit of hindsight, it would have been ironic.
