Thanks, Russ (rcprince).  Yes, "Projections" was indeed a great album, from start to finish, and has long been one of my all-time favorite rock albums.

I went to see Golden Palominos in the late 80s at The Paradise in Boston, when Syd Straw was with them. The encore was The Ocean by Led Zeppelin, and with all due respect to Robert Plant, Syd was way better. Maybe the best cover I've ever heard.
Maybe not better, but very good.....

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" Johnny Cash
