Kind of Blue I've already given a try. Is Sketches of Spain in a similar vein?

We've all heard the myths of the supposed greatness of the Beatles and the Stones despite their puny record sales,but the REAL leader of the 'British Invasion' was the maestro above whom you'll catch at about the 8:45 mark.......It's none other than the nonpareil legend Enoch Simpson with his incomparable,'England!England!England!'
You're gonna keep plugging this, aren't you? Props.

All from the north American rock/pop scene.
ELO, Boston, Chicago, Saga, Toto, Genesis, Supertramp .. pops into me head. There'll be loads more.
British scene had a lot more edge to it. This was of course a wonderful time before Simon Cowell .. Sex Pistols, Clash ..
Interesting you mentioned Boston in that lot, since tracks like More Than A Feeling I woulda said were less experimental, if you like, than perhaps Genesis and what I heard of Saga. Sorta more straight-up rock structure.
Not that I'm in any way an expert, of course.
