Survival bag

So, the end of the world is nigh, but, thankfully, in the spaceship ark, along with 10 million frozen embryos, there is room for one representational track from every progressive band that has ever put finger to mellotron or guitar....ONE track which sums up the essence of a bands entire existence! The world waits, the asteroid draws steadily nearer...you have to choose...
....millions yet unborn depend on YOU!

Re: Survival bag

Nektar - Remember The Future (Part 1) (and Part 2 if I could sneak it aboard - it really is one long track that had to be divided up because of vinyl.)

Re: Survival bag

Pink Floyd - that's a toughy. All reverence given to Alan's Pyschedelic Breakfast, of course, I'd still have to go with Meddle's "Echoes." A touch of the early with the foreshadowing of the music to come.

Hmm no piano and no acoustic guitar...hardly a sum (although my fave ELP track).....

then i thought Karn Evil 9 maybe...still no lake guitar...

speaking of Tarkus, that may be one of the more lifted pieces of music in prog..you'll hear elements of Tarkus in a lot of songs....

Rick,

You make some great points - then what about "From the Beginning" by ELP or "Take a Pebble" - they have both of the elements you mentioned....

ATOM HEART MOTHER Why? Because it's rife with all the excesses of progressive rock sensibilities: it's a long radio-unfriendly composition; replete with backing choir and orchestra; has great uplifting melodic parts as well as dark and dissonant parts; chock full of quirky and spacey interludes; lead motorbike and broken glass parts; just when you think it's concluding, it's not; fabulous production qualities (thanks to Mr. Parsons); recorded in Abbey Road Studios; and hated by all the critics! It's Pink Floyd at their most experimental stage, IMO.

Thick as a brick





You put your bet on number one and it comes up every time.
The other kids have all backed down and they put you first in line.
And so you finally ask yourself just how big you are --
And take your place in a wiser world of bigger motor cars.

Re: Survival bag

I think either Yes' And You And I or their Heart of the Sunrise. Both songs sum up Prog Rock in a clear, concise fashion.

Have to respectfully disagree...however, it's representative of later Echolyn. Suite for the Everyman is the earlier definitive epic....

Like KC..

"Court of" is only representative of their first few yrs,,,, Starless the next,,,

then there's the Discipline period, and now the Industrial period...

always the contrarian lol
