Providing this link to a piece that means so much to me as I believe there are some few here with attention spans beyond 30 seconds who might really enjoy it. Otherwise merely reprinting what I had said about it on Facebook, because, frankly, I don't care to rethink it, its late, and there's pizza to be consumed.
Not sure I have ever heard a tale rendered more beautifully in live performance than this from Robin Williamson off a wonderful cd he did in the early nineties with John Renbourn. Those familiar with key elements of Celtic mythology will be familiar with the characters involved. The only drawback to my mind with the video included is that it is from several hundred miles to the south in Wiltshire where Stonehenge also is located, but quoted in the piece is "Arran that is in the Clyde" (Isle of Arran, Strathclyde, Scotland) which to me would have been more apt imagery. In any case, upon hearing this the first time years ago got signifigant shivers and a notable lump in my throat. Beautiful.
steelmonkey: I prefer Scorpios, Leos, Taurases( Tauri?), Cancers and Capricorns but Pisces on the bubble of all right.

steelmonkey: I go on binges of long forgotten ( Jefferson Airplane, CSNY, Humble Pie), Overlooked releases ( Zappa, Prince, PIL) and just plain musical vitamins ( Traveling Wilburys, Pink Floyd) and then remember life is short and I should revert to all Tull all day.
