I was surprised to see a Supertramp album in the list, I would never really have classed them as prog rock.

Yeah very proggy Brendo, they did some pop stuff like Breakfast In America but a lot of their album stuff is proggy

Best Supertramp album is "Crime of the Century" imo which is on that list.

I have a few of the Floyd albums (Dark Side, Wish You were Here and Animals) as well. And Radiohead. Didn't know that I was that much of a prog back in the day.
(I did balance it out however with a healthy dose of Sex Pistols, Clash, Buzzcocks etc...)  ;)

After a quick view I've had at one time or another about 18 of them.  No albums left thanks to an acrimonious divorce.

I keep them in cloud now  :D

That's more like it. Had a few of those. Glad to see Stiff Little Fingers in there; seminal band. A few left out though but overall pretty good.

opeth! didn't expect to see that in there. Solid prog metal that band!

close to the edge is pretty class though Bill Bruford - bit of a ledge.

 :D

Didnt I meet you at a Yes gig once Swiss  :o

Yes have become a joke of a band nowadays, they hired a (frontman/singer) Jon Anderson soundalike/lookalike from a Yes tribute band for their world tour and latest album, Jon was ill at the time apparently, they didnt tell him, just did it.

Prog is still alive but I dont like anything after about 1978, either from new prog bands (like Dream Theatre) or old prog bands (like King Crimson), old farts like me just seem to like the classic stuff, of which there is thousands of albums in existence, prog in the 70's was a massive worldwide thing, bigger than most people think, Im only just hearing stuff from Russia and South America from the 70's

Anyway, speaking of Yes, Ive never heard anyone play keyboards as well as Rick Wakeman although Keith Emerson (ELP) does come close, listen to his piano on this unplugged gig

Who remembers this famous song by The Carpenters, not many know it was written as an album track by 70's prog band Klaatu

Rick Wakeman is the craziest fucker, he's done some insane shit

But I just heard him say when he played on Bowie's hit, Life On Mars, he got 9 quid eventually for it

Great song though and great piano

It's gratifying to see that I'm not a complete philistine owning as I do 9 of the albums on that list.

Yes - Close To The Edge
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon / Wish You Were Here / The Wall
Rush - Moving Pictures / 2112 / Hemispheres / A Farewell To Kings / Permanent Waves.
