I had In The Court of the Crimson King on vinyl. The inside album cover had the lyrics. I had them memorized back then. I Talk to the Wind I enjoyed singing the most.
Brings back memories. A long-hair hippie-type band I was in going by the name of Babble-On
(Har-har! Get it? God, we thought we were soool freekin' cooool
!) spent about half a year getting 20th Century Schizoid Man
down note for note. That was considered as badass a song as badass got back then. We used to do that number immediately before The End
by the Doors - which is how we usually wrapped up our show. (Talk about a pretentious little bunch of jerks huh? Gotta love the late 60s and early 70s. Not.
We were a fairly bad attitude bunch of young-uns back then.
