View Full Version : COTM - Feature #33 - Rockin' Prog

11-14-2011, 09:09 AM
Greetings Prog Rockers.

This week I will be featuring three artists. I thought it would be a good time to return to the rock side of progressive rock after several weeks of jazz rock and fusion.

All three albums are right around 1970 +/-. I'll open with the 2nd album from Paladin entitled Charge! That's the one with the great Roger Dean illustration of a charging horse. Classic.

After that we'll look at a group that is more "Prog Related." There was hope that they might evolve into a full fledged progressive rock group, but they veered off onto another path. We're going to check out their debut self-titled album, Styx.

Our third group today is an early Prog band that formed in 1967 and released their first album in 1969, Here on the Moon we have their 2nd album and more, but not this debut. So I am happy to announce an Aural Moon Premiere playing of this album. Now, I'm going to keep it a surprise until I play it, but I know you will enjoy it.

Thanks for tuning in folks.
