Need Info. about A Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres!

Post by sgatedrummer21892 » Sat Aug 26, 2006 10:14 pm

On A Farewell to Kings, Is it just "Cygnus X-1"? or is it, "Cygnus X-1 Book 1: The Voyage?

Also, On Hemispheres, is the title track just Hemispheres? Or is it "Cygnus X-1 Book 2: Prelude/Apollo Bringer of Wisdom/Dionysus Bringer of Love/Armageddon The Battle of Heart and Mind/Cygnus Bringer of Balance/The Sphere A Kind of Dream? iTunes is confusing me, some help with what these songs are really called would help.

Last thing. La Villa Strangiato, does it really have 12 parts? If so, what are the 12 parts?

The final track on 'A Farewell to Kings' is entitled 'Cygnus X-1, Book 1: The Voyage' and if you look at the lyrics, 'to be continued' is appended at the end.

The first track on 'Hemispheres' is 'Cygnus X-1, Book 2: Hemispheres' which (and remember 'Hemispheres' was originally released on vinyl) was a side long suite, lasting over 18 minutes, and comprising 6 movements.

'La Villa Strangiato' is an instrumental piece that is 9min 35s in length and is didvided into the following movements (the times given are when each movement begins)

I. Buenos Nochas, Mein Froinds! (0:00)
II. To sleep, perchance to dream... ( 0:27)
III. Strangiato theme (2:00)
IV. A Lerxst in Wonderland (3:16)
V. Monsters! (5:49)
VI. The Ghost of the Aragon (6:10)
VII. Danforth and Pape (6:45)
VIII. The Waltz of the Shreves (7:26)
IX. Never turn your back on a Monster! (7:52)
