Would I be wrong if I said Tangerine Dream "Rubycon?"
My fav is Mike Oldfield "Incantations". (sorry it took so long to respond.)
So, I'm a "Sr Member", huh?  In June it's SENIOR DISCOUNT TIME!!!

I forgot to mention, possibly a hanging offence,....

Michael Moorcock and the Deep Fix - 'New World's Fair', not just the music but connected to almost every book he wrote

Bob Calvert - 'Captain lockheed and the Starfighters'

For me it's "The Burning Circle and then Dust" album by Lycia.  Probably the most-played album I own.

Bob Calvert - 'Captain lockheed and the Starfighters'

That was one wierd album--more like a radio theater piece with music.  I still remember that line, "Catch a falling starfighter..put it in the pocket of your jeans..."  Wasn't Viv Stanshall of Bonzo Dog Band fame on that one?

In the prog-rock arena many of Rick Wakeman's, but notably Myths & Legends of King Arthur
and The Six Wives of Henry VIII.

More recently I've enjoyed Seven by Magenta and The Whirlwind by Transatlantic.  You can spot
the Genesis and Yes influences on the former.
