You want to hear Tales From Topographic Oceans by Yes, also from 1973. A double-album that has four tracks...
I'm afraid the comic doesn't convey how magnificently bad this song is. I know Yes were pretty pompous, but the only other album from this period I know of that has lengthy spoken prentensiousness is Hawkwind's Warriors on the Edge of Time, and that doesn't have the ooooohs and ahhhhhs in the background that had me cracking up.
Ah, Hawkwind. The first band I ever saw live. My hearing has yet to recover.

Mind you -- I also saw Spinal Tap live at the Albert Hall in 1992. "Break Like the Wind", "Stonehenge", "Big Bottom"... Those were the days.
