Back to the record collection.
I haven’t done one of these posts for a while. Partly because of bad planning on my part. Partly because having done a small but reasonable spread of the 80 / 90’s Neo Proggers I wanted to go back to what was essentially the source material for these later groups and eventually my favourites.
Trouble is you can’t just jump in and do the Genesis post. It’s a bit like a Prog Rock variant on the Godwin’s law thing. As soon as you mention ‘Suppers Ready’, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’ or ‘I know what I like (in your wardrobe)’ the discussion is over.
The other thing is that the bands I have covered so far I have seen and bought the LP’s when they were released. When tripping back a musical generation it’s all rather before my time.
So what I thought I’d do is post a couple of videos of some of my earliest musical recollections.
There were many to choose from but from my youngest days there are distinct memories of.
And another favourite
Do you have any particular early musical recollections. If so I'd be interested to hear what they are.
Next time I do one of these posts though I will have to go with the giants upon whose shoulders the second gen prog bands teetered.
