PROG 50 – Progressive Rock Around the World in 50 Years
480 pages, thousands of artists with bio and discographies
Written in english.
“It was forty years ago today…” that progressive music exploded like a bomb, following the psychedelic movement, towards a mature musical movement.
Six writers deeply involved in prog, smuggle loads of information into this musical movement; they are unapologetic fans who seem to have been waiting for someone to ask them : “Is prog music really ended in the eighties ?”
This book is a complete compendium of prog music, starting in the late sixties, flowing through the years up to yesterday. For fans, discographies, historical notes, comments and pictures of hundreds of records are included.
If you really want to feel the deep progressive feeling, this is the book.
Forward by Peter Gabriel and Aldo Tagliapietra
