Yeah, Eloy was the first band to come to my mind as well.
If you don't mind the German accent on the vocals, Eloy
is an excellent band.  Haven't heard _Power & the Passion_,
but I can heartily recommend _Colours_, _Ra_, _Silent Cries
& Mighty Echoes_, _The Tides Return Forever_, and _Floating_,
in about that order.  Only problem is that they are only
available as imports from Germany, so they'll cost US
residents about US$20 each.  Griffin supposedly released
a "best of" CD last year, but I never say it, nor do I ever
expect to, now.

Only heard the one Nektar track from the _Supernatural
Fairy Tales_ boxed set.  Quite good, but also tough to find
here in the states.

If anyone has _any_ CDs by either of these bands for sale,
please drop me a line!
