One of my favorite albums of all time. Killer musicians and great songs.
So is Peter Moore.
Not to hijack the thread but... a couple years ago I was surfing Wikipedia and somehow ended up reading about Gentle Giant and from there to Gary Green. They mentioned his birthday, and I realized it was his birthday that very day. They also mentioned the town where he was living in Illinois. I looked in an online phone book and found the listing. I realized I could call Gary Green and wish him a happy birthday. I didn't though. Woulda been wierd.
not a recorder but pretty close....
Two of my personal favourite recorder appearances:
The 20th Century Fox fanfare was awesome!
Ian Anderson in the interview that came with the album I bought said Martin Barre played one of those cheap plastic recorders like everyone played in grade school. I'm not sure if he played as well, or it's Flute+Recorder, but there's recorder in there:
I've Seen All Good People-Yes.
Screaming Trees "Lay Your Head Down" from 1989's Uncle Anesthesia has a recorder solo by Chris Cornell.
The Jethro Tull Songs from the Wood album. Anderson plays some wind instruments other than flute on this
"Neanderthal Man" by Hotlegs(who were the proto version of 10cc).
"Inside Out" by Canadian band Crash Vegas.(Their original bassist, heard here, was Jocelyne Lanois, Daniel Lanois's sister.)
Troggs Wild Thing
I'd find some cool recorder music from the middle ages and learn it. It would be kinda cool on acoustic instead of the lute.
Anyone for Tennis(?) - Cream
Probably some Traffic as well.
That was an ocarina!
Aussie prog featuring Bon Scott in a 2 recorder assault (at the 5 minute mark)!
At first, I did not get the joke and was going to say that Peter Moore has to be pretty obscure.
21st century answer: Parquet Courts, "You've got me wonderin' now"
Surprise for you: the Troggs actually used an ocarina for the solo on that song, with lead singer Reg Presley
playing the instrument:
---Chris Britton, guitarist with the Troggs, to the Sydney Morning Herald in 2015.
Crap, and here I was all these years thinkin' it was a recorder.
...but is that ocarina 5 miles long?
