I'm wondering if there's much interest in supporting an ongoing chat thread focussing on old school prog, and prog vinyl?
Although Progressive music is still very much alive & well, I have to confess that it's mainly the old school stuff that really moves and engages me. I was born in 1960, so the original prog era is definitely "my time". My ears are most attracted to the production feel and sensibilities of 1970s music, especially the panoramic stereo imaging and analogue audio warmth of that period.
There is WAY more to 1970s prog than the "big 10" pioneering British progrock bands. There's such a vast amount of little-heard 1970s prog from so many countries, that one can easily spend a lifetime trying to find it all and hear it. To me this quest is much more fascinating than trying to keep up with modern prog.
Your thoughts, contributions and favourites?
