Hi again,

Following the discussions on Honeymoon Suite in another thread I listened back to their killer album The Big Prize during my lunch walk today. Essential!

One of several stand-out tracks is 'All along you knew', featuring Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull on flute. Just brilliant:

The lead trade off between him and HS guitarist Derry Grehan is fantastic.

Made me think how uncommon it is for songs in our beloved genre to feature instruments outside of the box of guitar, bass, drums and keys/organ.

Which other examples are there, if we stay within the melodic rock genre (AOR/west coast has plenty of horn stuff of course)? Magnum's 'Midnight (You Won't Be Sleeping)' has its great sax solo.

Cheers
