I decided earlier this year I'd like to go down the well trodden path of rearranging some traditional Christmas carols, so in my spare time I got to work on a couple of childhood favourites and thoroughly enjoyed the process. The Wassail Song to my ears came out pretty well and I had great fun turning this wonderful traditional song in to a mini prog epic. Whistles, Kazoos and sleigh bells. Just three of the ingredients essential in a proggy Christmas tune. Maybe.
This is a bonus track which came from a germ of an idea, based on the similarity of the title of songs by Genesis and Frost* respectively. Plus a realisation that with a little lyrical bending, one song could be sung to the chords of the other. I have been a life long fan of Genesis, and ever since I heard Hyperventilate, Frost* have been a firm favourite for me also.
So I set out to join two beautiful songs together and found it a fulfilling experience.
