Song of the day: Flash – "Small Beginnings"

October 28, 2010

I was all set to play you a super-duper power pop song from Australia today, but I’ve been listening to Super Hits Of The 70’s: Have A Nice Day (yes, all 26 discs) and was amazed by one song in particular. I just had to share it with you. The song is “Small Beginnings” by Flash, a British prog rock band.

If you’re familiar with today’s track, then please pardon my ignorance. I’d never heard the song before, or even heard of the band. The first time I heard it I was stunned by how much it sounded like… well, I’ll let you figure it out:

Flash – “Small Beginnings” (1972)


I must admit that I’ve never ever heard a song that sounded like a cross between The Who and Yes before.
