The Solid Time of Change is our overlong yet incomplete history of the so-called Prog Rock era – 661 selections from 1965 through 1979 with which we hope to do justice to a strange and ambitious time indeed, musically speaking.
Part Thirty of the journey went as follows:
Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – sky high
Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – joybringer
Roxy Music – if there is something [live]
PFM – celebration (of ghosts)
Supertramp – fools overture
Caravan – For Richard
Synergy – disruption in world communications
Kraftwerk – autobahn
Eagles – journey of the sorceror
Roy Harper – the same old rock
Fresh episodes air pretty much every Saturday night, starting 11 pm (Pacific time) c/o CiTR.FM.101.9, with streaming and download options available within twenty-four hours via our Facebook page.
PFM (short for Premiata Forneria Marconi the name of a restaurant apparently) being the best damned prog rock outfit to ever come out Italy, Celebration being a playful rush of classically infused rock that’s so nimble and smart you don’t have time to realize how ridiculous it is.
