THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #391 (The Art Rock Age)

Prog?  Progressive Rock?  Neither was a common descriptor in 1970.

But ‘Art Rock’ was.

Time marches on…and many albums turning 50 this year deserve some love before this tumultuous year ends.

So it’s all 1970 this week!

Progressive Tracks Show #370 (The Beautiful Genre)

Progressive Rock is one of the most emotive and beautiful musical genres… so says I.

This week’s show is going to be a big ‘lighter’ overall; each track is beautiful in its own way… and of course, in my opinion.

And, sadly, we’ll have a tribute to another great artist… and that’s not just my opinion.
