Emerson Lake & Palmer!!! <swoon> The band for classical music aficionados who don't like bands ;-)

I was at a San Francisco Symphony concert ~25 years ago when they played a Janacek Symphony. When what to my wondering ears should appear, but the quoted music from an ELP album, and the bliss was sheer ;-) I was about bouncing out of my seat with joy!

I have heard of Yes and Blue Oyster Cult, but no clue (nationality? genre? hits?). My husband liked the Moody Blues, but all I can remember about them is Nights in White Satin...or Knights in White Satin, which is what I thought at the time ;-)

My college boyfriend was into certain things (Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Buffalo Springfield, Crosby Stills Nash, Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkle...), which is what I listened to in college--besides Medieval/Renaissance music and classical. And the songs I heard at mixers (mixers! I haven't heard that word in decades, not to apply to dance parties anyhow).

Another guy I dated in college introduced me to Leonard Cohen, Judy Collins, and Joni Mitchell.
