1. On The Threshold Of A Dream
First Man: I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.

Establishment: Of course you are my bright little star,
I've miles
And miles
Of files
Pretty files of your forefather's fruit
and now to suit our
great computer,
You're magnetic ink.

First Man: I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.

Inner Man: There you go man, keep as cool as you can.
Face piles
And piles
Of trials
With smiles.
It riles them to believe
that you perceive
the web they weave
And keep on thinking free.

3. The one that sounds good...
While wearing headphones, and after, well, you know...
I never got the name of it!

4. To Our Children's Children's Children
Or something like that. It was the followup to "Threshold"

6. Days of Future Passed
Tuesday Afternoon...ahhhh

I think I still remember the story behind it - Justin (Heywood?) was supposed to supervise a studio orchestra to demonstrate some new recording technology - some proprietary form of quadrophonics, I think it was - but he blew that off and used the studio time to record this album instead.

The record company was NOT HAPPY. At some point well into the production process, they decided to dump the album. Days of Future Passed started life in the bargain bins for a dollar or less. Later it became a classic.

Threshold of a Dream is probably better, but this one is still so nice. The second side especially.
