Diablo Swing Orchestra

Ahh… the things we think.  The weird ways our minds work.

Time for some tunes about the mind.  Whose mind?  Somebody’s mind.  Maybe it’s yours?  Maybe it’s mine?

The days are getting shorter, and darkness is the best environment to put on some headphones and immerse yourself in some quality, heady, progressive rock.

Remember, you can stream/download this, and any of the 117 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.

Progressive Tracks Show #242 (Best of Prog – 2017), originally broadcast on Friday, December 29, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

2017 was another fantastic year for Prog.  Any arguments?   I didn’t think so.

I haven’t actually done a full-blown ‘best-of’ show in years, but instead I’ve given out awards in self-created categories so as not to contradict other DJ’s.  This year is different; I’ll play tracks from my personally-selected Top 10 albums (playing different tracks from any I played on previous shows), including the one I consider the Best Prog Album of 2017.

PLAYLIST (NOT in numerical order):

  • Vespero – “Hapi” from Shum-Shir on Tonzonen Records
  • Charlie Cawood – “Garden of the Mind” from The Divine Abstract on Bad Elephant Music
  • Nova Collective – “The Further Side” from The Further Side on Metal Blade Records
  • Trojan Horse – “Sickle Cell Orphan” from Fukushima Surfer Boys on Bad Elephant Music
  • Bubblemath – “Perpetual Notion” from Edit Peptide on Cuneiform Records
  • Gentle Knife – “Fade Away” from Clock Unwound – Gentle Knife II on Bajkal Records
  • Kotebel – “Paradise Lost” from Cosmology on Musea
  • Amplifier – “Horse” from Trippin’ With Dr. Faustus on BEM
