Album of the Day

Red Queen to Gryphon Three, by Gryphon (1974): How can you not like a band that has a member solely dedicated to playing bassoon and krumhorn? Gryphon's four-track instrumental concept album (think chess) is a great medieval-tinged symphonic prog work. Jaunty bassoon runs abound. Maybe krumhorn runs do, too, but, honestly, I don't know what one sounds like!
