THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #320
(The Old Day IS The New Day)

Many of the issues we face today are not new… we just didn’t learn the lessons of the past.

Fortunately, music isn’t like that. New creations often use the past as building blocks… and the results are impressive (unless of course we didn’t learn anything, and disco makes a comeback). 😉

This week we’ll explore both new and old music, including a 50-year old classic album.

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are over 160 now!).

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #296 
(Music That Will Change You)

As we live our lives, we pass through portals/gates… significant events that present opportunities for real change… on the way to knowing our true selves.

Yes, (good or bad) it’s another one of those ‘themed’ shows…   ;o)

Remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are 136 now!).

On this week’s Prog-Watch my very special guest is the one and only Martin Barre of Jethro Tull fame! Martin and I talk Tull and his solo career, and along the way there is plenty of great music…a few Tull tunes on which Martin really shines, and lots of great music from his solo albums, including a few from his fabulous new album “Roads Less Travelled”! 

541: In Conversation with Martin Barre of Jethro Tull

 

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.

This week’s Prog-Watch is another edition of EPIX! My usual criteria apply: an EPIC must be over 10 minutes long; and we will hear one for each major decade of our favorite genre! This time we’ll hear music from The Flower Kings, Big Big Train, Southern Empire, Jethro Tull and Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe!

I hope you will join me for some wonderful, modern rock symphonies!

 

533: Epix, Vol. 3

 

This week on Prog-Watch I’m shaking the family tree of one of my favorite bands of all time…Jethro Tull! So much great stuff shakes out, including music from Blodwyn Pig, Aviator, solo Ian Anderson, solo Martin Barre, and some real lost gems from the late Glenn Cornick’s Wild Turkey!

I’ll also be spinning lots of great stuff from The Fierce & The Dead, Fractal Mirror, Bram Stoker, Jethro Tull, Steven Wilson, Downes-Braide Association, Rush, Spiral Key, and Somnambulist.
