Lovely, Jazzy Prog Rock
I'd bought "The Young Person's Guide to King Crimson" about 1977 or so. Bobby Fripp included a review of a KC album in which the author compared Crimso to Henry Cow. Not too long after I picked up HC's "Leg End." To me "Nirvana for Mice" was the most wonderful prog rock song I'd ever heard. It was jazz! Or was it? I dashed off a letter to Fred Frith, the guitarist, telling him of my infatuation. He sent the most kind letter back, including the chords to "Nirvana." Under the spell of Henry Cow, I began to collect Miles Davis and Coltrane in earnest. My life began anew.
