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.

  • King Crimson – “Cat Food” from In The Wake of Poseidon on DGM (1970)
  • Ahvak – “Bherta” from Ahvak on Cuneiform Records (2004)
  • Electric Mud – “Quiet Days On Earth” from Quiet Days On Earth on Independent (2020)
  • Atilla Engin & Mateo – “Take Care of Your Baby” from Turkish Delight on Arsivplak (1980)
  • Gary Husband & Markus Reuter – “Music of Our Times” from Music of Our Times on MoonJune Records (2020)
  • Jonathan & Corentin Aussems – “Uhb” from Idegael on homerecords.be (2016)
  • King Crimson – “Cadence and Cascade” from In The Wake of Poseidon on DGM (1970)
  • King Crimson – “Islands” from Islands on DGM (1970)

 THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #347 (In Your Face…)

There IS harmony to be found in the dissonance…especially if it’s in your face (whether new or classic).

And while that may not be what you always listen to, shows like this provide an opportunity to stretch your progressive ‘aural muscles’.

So join me… and get to stretchin’!     ;o)

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #341
(Bringin’ The Music!)

We’ll make more musical discoveries this week… mostly of new music, but also a couple of ‘refreshed’ tunes to enjoy.

As always, not the usual radio fare. But that’s exactly why you tune in, right?

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #334  (Holding Court)

Do you really have to ask what this week’s show is all about?

Well, there is some other excellent new music included…

NOTE:  This podcast has ‘a little extra’ attached.  I don’t think you’ll mind.  ;o)

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.
