I would like to start a new section in this Forum, as I just realized that it
doesn't have a similiarly dedicated thread--as do Classical and Jazz--regarding what prog rock a member bought or received on a specific day. I apologize in advance if such a prog rock thread already exists; I just haven't noticed it.

Today I got Traffic's Shoot out at the fantasy factory

Good idea Steve and a good choice to start with. I will try and contribute.

Thanks, Teddy. I can' wait to listen to this cd, as I've always liked Traffic and Stevie Winwood starting with their first album, which I heard and reviewed in high-school.

@ Teddy, I'm not familiar with anything recent by either musician; however, if by "new" you mean works by them that you are not conversant with, then let me know which ones you do know, and perhaps I can add to your list.

I had heard that they had got together again. Just wondered what they were playing and whether it was mellow.

Teddy, Great find and thanks for the link! That song was on the one and only album Blind Faith put out. I also have it on my Stevie Winwood, Twentieth Century Masters CD.

I bought the entire Procol Harum's re-issues set last year. What a wonderful and underrated band they are! "Grand Hotel" is one of my favs ever. Back to the topic: I got Steven Wilson's "The Raven That Refused to Sing And Other Stories" yesterday. I'm amazed: he's back to vintage prog, our old chap Steve!

OT, I know time will come I'll be obliged to rent a flat somewhere in order to store my CDs here. Or maybe I should go modern and choose FLAC, MP3 and Co. But it's over me, I need the physical thing... :cry:

Pink Floyd - Piper At The Gates of Dawn.
The CD set has the album in mono and in stereo. I got really interested in that band when I heard their albums "Animals" and "The Wall". Now I'm even more interested and I want to hear more of their stuff.

They certainly produced some wonderful music. I have several of their old albums on vinyl from almost forty years ago. Try Ummagumma. A double album with some wild music.

Not today, but a couple of weeks ago: Blackfield's 5th album, appropriately entitled Blackfield V.


Seems like a return to form after their disappointing 4th album.

Not enable to offer anything new. But try 'Go Live from Paris' where Steve Winwood was the lead singer in a surreal line-up of great musicians. Great voice and music. Intense atmosphere as well. Warning: this CD or double-LP not easy to find, can sample it on YouTube of course

Last week I bought the new Steven Wilson album, "To the Bone". There's some good stuff on there, but overall I'd say it's the weakest so far of his five solo albums. There is also a fair bit on it that is pop rather than prog, not that that is my reason for criticism, rather that both the pop and the prog are not as good as what he has done in the past.
