The Time Has Come……

….The Walrus Said.

And speaking of many things, we have Cabbages and Kings, except there are no cabbages but we do have some Queens to go with the Kings.

Stretching the point a bit, because we open with Led Zeppelin’s mighty Achilles’ Last Stand. Perhaps Achilles wasn’t really royalty, but he is described as the King of the Myrmidons in The Iliad.

Mind you, the rest of the motley assortment of characters are pretty lacking in regal majesty, beauty queens, high-fashion queens, one-eyed people and various other weirdoes.

OK, so maybe they aren’t that different from most royal families after all!

Track listing

Led Zeppelin – Achilles’ Last Stand
Kate Bush – King Of The Mountain
Roxy Music – Beauty Queen
Camel – Mystic Queen
Steely Dan – Kings
Robert Plant – All The King’s Horses
Nektar – King Of Twilight
Rick Wakeman – Excerpts from The six wives of Henry VIII
Dead Can Dance – In The Kingdom Of The Blind The One-eyed Are Kings
The Who – The Acid Queen
Fairport Convention – Fotheringay
The Flying Burrito Brothers – High Fashion Queen

The Rick Wakeman “Six Wives” stuff is from the Yessongs live album and Fotheringay is from the Fairports’ Live At Cropredy 2008 album.
