I Believe in Father Christmas–Greg Lake

I feel guilty about this because back in the mid-70s when it was released, I really, really liked it.  And let’s face it, those of us who were into the whole progressive rock thing should feel guilty.  Rock was not meant to take itself so seriously.  Do we really need the Prokofiev shoved in our faces here? Do we really need these guys to remind us how smart they are? Overblown, self-important.  See for yourself here. In fact, this thing is so taken with itself that it has its own “Making of” video.

Still, the reminder that it’s up to us to make Christmas what we think it ought to be and not to give into the corruption of the feast (Any Christmas we get we deserve.) is worth considering.
