Nektar: “Lonely Roads” (1973)

In 1973 underrated English prog rockers Nektar produced what many consider to be their masterwork, Remember the Future.

Comprised of two album-side length epics, it was suited to FM rock radio, but difficult to shoehorn onto AM–think Tales from Topographic Oceans.

The forlorn, atmospheric “Lonely Roads”, an excerpt from the album’s second side, was used as a radio promo, and it nicely shows off the guitar textures, vocals and songwriting of one Roye Albrighton, the band’s creative beacon.

Side one of RTF is highly recommended.
