My favourite half dozen, pre-prog, pre-1970 albums.......(cat amongst the pigeons time)....as my definition of a pre-prog (or as some say proto-prog) band is one that was pushing the boundaries of rock out of psych-pop and towards prog but when prog actually broke properly they went off in another direction (e.g. hard rock, contemporary folk, pop) or just carried on playing the same type of music or simply disbanded (e.g. The Nice)

Deep Purple - Shades of Deep Purple (68)
The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed (67)
Procol Harum - A Salty Dog (69)
The Nice- Ars Longa Vita Brevis (68)
Argent - Argent (69)
Strawbs - Strawbs (69)

Dylan, Freewheelin'

Solti, Wagner: Siegfried

Mingus, The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady

Bohn, Mozart: Cosi fan tutte

Ellington, Afro-Bossa

the Deutsche Grammophon issue of Stockhausen, Gesang der junglinge / Kontakte

Karajan, Beethoven Symphonies w/- Berlin Philharmonic (still my reference for these)

Name that defining album in prog!

Five albums from the 70s that I would recommend to a new listener of Prog that define the genre:

1) Ethos - Open Up
2) Yes - Close To The Edge
3) Nektar - A Tab in the Ocean
4) King Crimson - Starless and Bible Black OR Lark's Tongue In Aspic
5) Rush - Hemispheres


Don't ask me why, but I am very partial to Ethos "Open Up" album (1976 I think)

The whole thing is available on YouTube...here are the first two songs

This is a real odd choice. I think it's ok, but I prefer their first album, even though there are some cringe worthy moments (Everyman). I'll have to pull out the vinyl again.

Have you heard the thrid album "Relics"? It's basically pre-Ardour recordings. An early version of Pimp City is on it.

I was born in 1962 and first saw Rush in 1976. At that time, they were definitely progressive rock. Rush did evolve away from this style over time.

I was born before 1970. Rush is definitely prog. If Rush isn't prog, there's loads of stuff mentioned here that IMO is definitely prog but no one ever questions. Most Kansas, Genesis albums like ATTWT and ATOTT. If Rush is only a "stadium band," then are you saying Rush is no more prog than Winger, or Journey, or Def Leppard?

First time i heard them. I like it. Thanks.Ethos was from, of all places, Terre Haute, Indiana. One of their 2 keyboard players, L(arry) Duncan Hammond (yes, Hammond is his real last name) lived in Madison before he auditioned for & got the gig w/Ethos & moved to Indiana. We knew each other from playing out on the same bill a few times (he had a keyboard driven cover band in Madison w/a Brian Auger vibe).

If you like "Open Up", their debut "Ardour" is considered by most, incl me, to be their best work. Check it out:).

Big 5 from the Big 5

Y - Fragile
KC - ItCotCK

Big 5 from the Lesser 5

reminds me of a joke:
I work in regulatory compliance and regulations and agencies are known by anagrams, such as BSA, FinCEN, TILA, TIS, Reg Z, CFPB, etc. So one day I was reviewing policies and was writing in the margins and was using texting abbreviations so it would not take up too much space. After making my notes and submitting them to executive management, I get a call from the administrative assistant to executive management, "We are confused over this one thing-what is AFAIK? We never heard of this regulation before!"
Me: "Um...As Far As I Know."
There was silence and then I heard laughing...

Here's a nice little tension releasing list we can all participate in, all contribute to.

Songs that have reached their shelf life, their sell by date.

Or, what I like to call songs that should be consigned to the scrapheap of history.

No requirement other than you're up to here/hear with this song.

I'll start.

Please. Please! No more YMCA by The Village People. I know, I know. There was a cute, little dance with letters and everything. But, it's got to go. Any further repetitions are just sonic self flagellation, musical masochism.

Continuing on intrepidly:

I used to have the "Ardour" album. I am so sorry I got rid of it years ago. Now that I want it back, I can't find a copy for single-digit dollars. Same for Fireballet.

I paid one single dollar for "Ardour" at a going out of business sale st a local head shop

These are the top 10 albums of German Krautrock and Progressive Electronic in the 1970s as it was rated altogether on RateYourMusic and ProgArchives in March 2019 (if only including one album per artist though):

Can (D) : Tago Mago (1971) 12,3 (16.600 r.)
Faust (D) : Faust IV (1974) 11,7 (7.100 r.)
NEU! (D) : NEU! (1972) 11,5 (9.000 r.)
Amon Düül II (D) : Yeti (1970) 11,7 (6.300 r.)
Tangerine Dream (D) : Phaedra (1974) 11,5 (6.300 r.)
Popol Vuh (D) : In den Gärten Pharaos (1971) 11,4 (3.300 r.)
Ash Ra Tempel (D) : Ash Ra Tempel (1971) 11,3 (3.200 r.)
Klaus Schulze (D) : Mirage (1977) 11,7 (1.700 r.)
Agitation Free (D) : Malesch (1972) 11,1 (2.100 r.)

Kraftwerk's Trans Europa Express (1977) should be a part of this list too. If not considered progressive enough, it could alternatively be Harmonia's Deluxe (1975).
