Part two of The Solid Time of Change aired Saturday May-14, 2016 c/o CiTR.FM.101.9.
This latest Randophonic countdown concerns the 661 Greatest Records of the so-called Prog Rock era, our overlong yet incomplete history of whatever the hell happened between 1965 and 1979 – not in all music, not even in most of it, but definitely in a bunch of it, particularly via bands hailing from the United Kingdom.
What is Prog Rock, and does it somehow differ from Progressive Rock, or for that matter, rock that merely progresses? These may seem simple questions but they are in fact doors that open unto some of the most complex enigmas of this split-atomic age. And what better way to explore them than with a radio journey that shall likely take us a full year.
Part two of our journey went as follows:
- Jethro Tull – the mouse police never sleeps.
- Jethro Tull – Acres wild
- Gentle Giant – cry for everyone
- Barclay James Harvest – May Day
- Genesis – deep in the motherlode
- Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – give me the good earth
- Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – Earth the Circle [1+2]
- Caravan – in the land of grey and pink
- John Miles – you have it all
- PFM – the mountain
- Roy Harper – The Lord’s Prayer
- Embryo – Spain yes, Franco finished
Part three of the Solid Time of Change airs Saturday, May-21, at 11pm (Pacific time) c/o CiTR.FM.101.9
