I'm feeling better again, after a week's cold/flu that was one of the worst I've ever endured, I think, and I'm back for another scene show. This week, we take a look at progressive rock, better known as Prog.
Prog's roots are mostly English, but there were American (and Canadian) prog rock bands too. Now, prog as a scene is too big for one scene show, so consider this Intro To Prog, and it focuses on '66-'77. At some point later, we'll revisit Prog in another scene show, and delve more into the time periods after that. Not next month, though.
As always, if you want to help the show, you can contribute over at http://www.patreon.com/StarlightSociety/ and if you're new to the show, feel free to check out our entire back catalog of shows. Scene shows are clearly marked, and are powers of 4.
This week's show is full of Mellotrons and Roger Dean paintings, bands singing about mystic things and lofty ideals, time signatures that go off the rails and keep on going...
