Progressive Tracks Show #369 (Music I’ve Been Thinking About)

This week there’s no theme.  I’m just playing some music that I’ve been thinking about.

Sometimes it’s good to take a break from trying to create… and just concentrate on the music.

  • Melange &  Jacco Gardner – “Ashokh” from Ashokh – Single on Independent (2020)
  • Beyond-O-Matic – “Plague of Bliss” from Time To Get Up on Trail Records (2010)
  • Psychyogi – “Master Plan” from Dangerous Devices on Independent (2020)
  • Professor Tip Top – “Data Mining” from Hybrid Hymns on Apollon Records (2019)
  • Onségen Ensemble – “Awalaï” from Awalaï on Pink Tank Records (2016)
  • Smokemaster – “Astral Traveller” from Smokemaster on Tonzonen (2020)
  • Spiralmaze – “The Longest Day (part II)  “ on Back to the Center on Independent (2014)

Progressive Tracks Show #265 (Discoveries), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 9, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

The premise for this show is simple:  Sometimes it takes a bit of looking, but the progressive rock machine continues to churn… and you’ll need no additional proof of that other than to listen to the music in this show.   It’s been quite a while since we’ve done an edition of The Progressive Tracks Show about anything but the SeaProg Festival (not that anyone’s complaining, mind you), but it’s time to get back to music discoveries from the past couple of months.

Here’s the plan:  Take some time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock.  It may well be the best part of your day.

The after-party:  Remember, you can access any previous edition of The Progressive Tracks Show at:
