Hi there Dale, my contribution:

Magma is pretty much a concept band. Beyond MDK you may also consider:

Köhntarkösz - 1974
Ẁurdah Ïtah - 1974
K.A. - 2004
Ëmëhntëhtt-Ré - 2009

Ẁurdah Ïtah and MDK are movements 2 and 3 of a larger set called Theusz Hamtaahk. The first movement was never recorded.

There are 2 concept albums by Hawkwind based on Michael Morcocks's writings:

Warrior on the Edge of Time - 1974
The Chronicle of the Black Sword - 1985

Though the last one may not qualify as prog...

And speaking of Hawkwind:

Robert Calvert - Dr. Lockheed and the Starfighters - 1974

The first two LP by Area are concept albuns:

Arbeit Macht Frei - 1973
Caution Radiation Area - 1974

More from Italy:

Museo Rosenbach - Zarathrusta - 1973
Blocco Mentale - POA - 1973

Within Krautrock I only know nof this strange effort:

German Oak - German Oak - 1972

But there's more from Germany:

Eloy - Dawn - 1976
Eloy - Ocean - 1977
Eloy - Colours - 1980
Eloy - Planets - 1981
Triumvirat - Illusions on a Double Dimple - 1973
Triumvirat - Spartacus - 1975

José Cid made two concept albums, of which only one became globally notorious:

Cantamos Pessoas Vivas - 1975
10 000 Anos Depois Entre Vénus e Marte - 1978

That's all I can remember for now.

Dale, this is becoming a pretty interesting database. Would you consider using a google spreadsheet? It would make browsing easier.

I think we can go there. It would be great to have. Wiki's "concept album list" includes to many other genres. We could maybe add it to Wiki later too.

You know how to set that up with google? Please help yourself in doing so.

Thanks deSousa.

Seems a shame to take information born of the moon to another site. Why not create the db here? Once some info is compiled, it could be driven by a web form for querying.

It's not that much work and I can see this being just a single table. Just decide what information you want to maintain. I can easily do a 'CREATE TABLE' and then 'INSERT TABLE' to populate it with your data.

If you want other data to be included when querying (like track titles, times, etc.) the new table can be "JOIN"ed with tables on the streaming server to gather the info.

I started to ask if we were limited to just prog albums, but if I asked that, then we'd have to define prog. Don't want to go there =8^O

So, in that vein...

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
Green Day - American Idiot

KenSchwartz 10-22-2010 08:18 PM

Re: Ode to the Concept Album - Mooniverse Show #53
 
ok, thought of a few more...

mike manter - the doubtful guest (songs are all Edward Gorey stories put to music)

mike oldfield - the killing fields (i'm assuming that soundtracks pretty much get "concept" status by definintion...which leads to...)

goblin. pretty much anything they did, right?
