Hmm.... vaguely familiar... I'll go see if it's who I think it is.

I heard this song on my commute this morning on 4ZzZ. It brought to mind a mix of early Jefferson Airplane and Pink Floyd. Once I got to work I found it on youtube.
I could put this in the stereo thread, the Rock on thread, or here. Hope someone enjoys it as much as I. 

Hey Ara.

Cool for me to see you.

The above link is to some very aggressive YES. Best appreciated with head phones / ear buds.

Volume..as needed.

Really good to see you Ara.

I am listening to and enjoying your Scout Niblett - Can't Fool me Now now as I type.

I thank you for sharing.

This was posted by a friend on fb this morning: Don't think I ever heard it before.

very late Soft Machine, after a number of personnel changes.
Soft machine never featured a guitar in the early days, but the addition of John Etheridge didn't hurt them a bit. I really like this tune.

I'll leave that link because it's a good live version but here's a more complete studio version (7 min instead of 3)

when I think of Prog rock I think of bands like Dream Theater, Blind Guardian (who did a whole Tolkien themed album), Rush, ELP, Yes, those sort of bands. Gotta say I love that type of stuff

Hey Sinister71, nice to meet another fan of progressive rock.
I guess I have been a little fast and loose with the stuff I've been posting in here...but there's a lot of progressive rock that isn't in the main stream that should be considered - a lot of it I'm just finding out about myself. I know very little about Italian prog for instance but I understand there is a thriving prog scene in Italy today, just haven't gotten around to checking it out yet.
The stuff from the Canterbury scene is definitely prog rock, just of another school. It's been around since the beginning in the late 60's early 70's and has always been considered prog. Great stuff.
I've also posted some stuff that could probably more accurately be called psychedelic music, like Hawkwind. But they were formed in the same era as prog's beginning, are from the UK and IMO there's enough crossover in style and influences, what with the science fiction lyrics and the extended tracks, that they can and should be considered here.

I'm also interested in bands that are keeping progressive rock going topday, people like Steve Wilson and Porcupine Tree and some of the others that have been posted in this thread. I'd love to learn about more new bands and if they aren't exactly n the mold of the classic bands then that's to be expected since most of that stuff around is 40 years old by now. (I feel so old..... :shock: )

But I love the old stuff too - and thanks to YouTube, I keep discovering new things about the classic bands.



Here's a great version of King Crimson's "Starless" from French TV in 1974! Isn't the internet great! :)

[edit; Wow what was Fripp on that day? (9:40ish and after) not his usual restrained self, that's for sure. Why oh why didn't he play like that more often?]

I'm not familiar with Blind Guardian and will definitely check them out on Youtube. Thanks for the tip. :)

a friend posted this on facebook, a version of the old the old Mahavishnu Orchestra tune, "meeting of the spirits" done live by Rovo and System 7 (never heard of them before but I see that Steve Hillage, the guitarist fro Gong, is a member of System 7). Really good.

Lots of great music here (especially Mahavishnu Orchestra and King Crimson) but I don't think I noticed The Mars Volta. My personal favourite of theirs is Bedlam in Goliath.

The Brits here may be able to see this, I don't know how to get the Vintage TV channel in the US

TOYAH & ROBERT FRIPP PRESENT MY VINTAGE

THE FRIPPS SELECT THEIR FAVOURITE MUSIC VIDEOS FROM THEIR HOME IN A BRAND NEW SPECIAL FOR VINTAGE TV

A new episode of My Vintage presented by Toyah and husband Robert Fripp premieres on Sunday 16 February t 17.00 on Freesat, cable channel Vintage TV.
Tune in for a very first as legendary King Crimson guitarist joins Toyah in selecting a selection of music videos…

From Vintage TV..

She’s our Vintage TV presenter and princess of punk and he’s played with Bowie and Blondie and is one of the world’s greatest guitarists. Now Toyah Willcox and her musician, composer and record producer husband Robert Fripp, of prog rockers King Crimson, invite us into their Worcestershire home for a joint My Vintage (16th Feb, 5pm), giving a fascinating and intimate insight into the records they are both passionate about and telling the tales behind their top tracks. What a couple! What a coup for My Vintage!

I'd only be interested if the prog-era 5-man lineup were to reunite. But Collins apparently had some nerve damage related to his drumming a few years ago, so don't know if he's capable of handling the skins.

I will say that I have no interest in seeing the pop-era trio, however I might reconsider if they had Hackett playing with them instead of Stuermer (no disrespect to Daryl Stuermer). I'd love to see the 4-man A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering lineup do some stuff.

..Great to see this thread alive and licking. Agreed on the Genesis lineup for a reunion.

Got to see The Moody Blues last month at the Mohegan Sun. Fun show, John Lodge was great.

Saw Yes with Jon Davidson in August, they were good but Davidson is no Jon Anderson and it just isn't the same.

Hey guys! Glad to see this thread still going strong! Got an AWESOME birthday present yesterday, My girlfriend got us tickets to see ARW in october. For those of you that don't know this is the line-up of Anderson-Rabin-Wakeman who are reforming a morphed version of YES, complete with a new album and tour. I am PSYCHED!!!! As some of you know I am a HUGE YES head. I'm also seeing YES in august. Although we have lost Chris Squire the band is still going pretty strong with Billy Sherwood filling in Squires immense shoes and doing a fine job. I'm not a huge fan of Jon Davidson who is the current lead vocalist but he's not terrible and Steve Howe is still as magnificent as ever. What I am secretly longing for is perhaps another 'UNION" type tour, with both bands merging into YES. That would be awesome! Steve and Jon Anderson need to bury the hatchet. The current YES line-up is performing two albums live, DRAMA, which hasn't been played at all in 30 years and two movements from TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS, The Revealing Science of God and Ritual. Tales is perhaps my all time favorite album and with Geoff Downes playing keys for the band right now DRAMA is a good choice as he was the key player on that album, along with Trevor Horn singing. Back in 1980 when DRAMA came out I remember being veeerrrry skeptical as Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman had left the band and Squire replaced them with the BUGGLES lol. What came of it was DRAMA a FANTASTIC YES album with some classic tunes including "Into The Lense" and "Tempus Fugit". When Anderson rejoined YES for 90215 they never played these songs live again. Now they are. A few weeks ago Trevor Horn joined them on stage to sing Tempus Fugit, very cool! Here it is..

Anyhoo, I'll give you a concert review after the shos!
