 Music. A strange phenomenon. We all like it but have no idea why


                    
People argue  about it.. Who is best or what is great and what is rubbish. People are crazy!
This site contains music of what has been termed "Progressive". Some love it but many believe it is not for them.
Hard facts:
A selection of some of the most successful(sold in the millions) and timeless
PROG albums and tunes.
Pink Floyd - Dark side of the moon
Beatles - Sergeant Pepper
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
Led Zeppelin - Zep 1V
Beethoven - 5th
Mike Oldfield -Tubular Bells
Pink Floyd  - The Wall
David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
Beatles - Abbey Road

albums and tunes of all time.

Pink Floyd - Dark side of the moon
Beatles - Sergeant Pepper

See a trend here?
I could write much longer lists and the fact is that there should be no surprise. Go too far in the direction of pop and you have fast food music. We all do it but it is actually pretty empty, has no lasting quality and ultimately gets forgotten.
Get too Progressive & it becomes baffling & annoying to anyone who hasn't yet spent the time trying it out.
Let us hope that advertising(
this controls what we see and hear every day) finds a way to allow mass exposure to creative music again one day.  Unfortunately, people rarely go looking for interesting well made food if they don't know where to find it. Especially if they are standing outside a burger bar at the time. Why would they bother? They may not like it when they find it.
Who recommends a burger bar to friends? Almost nobody. It is not interesting in the slightest. Who goes to burger bars? Everyone! Why? They are everywhere and always the same. We like that in life.

I am involved with many musicians who really don't have any interest in genres, limitations or anything that gets in the way of a bit of fun and good music. 
It is certain that nobody in the lists above cared much about opinions or popularity either. Few will ever achieve their level of brilliance, imagination or skill but that isn't the point. With encouragement someone will. That is always the case.

Odin(My first band) and Corvus Stone(right now), have almost nothing in common musically. So what? I love it all!
I don't give a monkeys if we are prog enough or too prog. If what we do follows any rules or breaks them. I have no idea of the "rules" anyway.

Is "prog" for you? Of course it bloody well is! Do you like at least one Abba tune also? No? Liar!!!!!!!

Try all the links above and you will see. I guarantee that you will find something you like.

Toodle Pip for now

Notes:
"Prog" experts, some fans, most of the music business, including so called unbiased media etc, have one thing in common. They all marginalise Progressive music of any form. They all give it a bad name and put people off it.
Why?
The music business, radio etc, make less money from it as they can't control it as well as they can control young wannabees.
This makes sense. They have a business to make money, not music.

Many prog experts, just like the classical experts 40 years ago, don't like change and rules being broken. They also don't like the idea that prog can be enjoyed by everyone. That makes it seem cheap to them and they love to feel a bit cleverer than you and me because they "understand" music better. Twats!


What does "prog" even mean? Bugger all really. Everyone has their own idea on that.
Imagine a new Pink Floyd, Queen or Emerson Lake and Palmer or Mozart
grabbing the imagination of the whole world again. Word of mouth is the only way it could ever happen now. We have the internet, so it can be done. Find something you like, tell someone FFS!

Right! I am off to MacBurgers for lunch. It is nice and convenient.
