The Greatest Show on Earth - Horizons (1970). The Greatest Show on Earth were one of the more stylistically original signings to EMI’s legendary Progressive label Harvest. The band was formed in 1968 and featured brothers Garth and Norman Watt-Roy (who played guitar and bass respectively), along with American vocalist Ozzie Lane, Mick Deacon on Organ, a horn section of Dick Hanson, Tex Philpotts and Ian Aitcheson and drummer Ron Prudence. Initially beginning life as a Soul outfit, the band’s musical direction changed when vocalist Lane returned home to New Orleans in early 1969. Replaced by Colin Horton-Jennings (who also played guitar and flute), the band began to take on board more "progressive” influences, incorporating rock, jazz and acoustic music into their sound…

Pain Of Salvation - Entropia (1997). This debut recording (originally released in 1997) by Swedish prog metal band Pain of Salvation proved to be a well-needed breath of fresh air for a genre that was full of self-parody and self-indulgence. Led by vocalist/lyricist Daniel Gildenlow, their unique style draws from influences such as Dream Theater, Queensrÿche, Faith No More, King's X, Pink Floyd, and Frank Zappa, to name a few. Their theatrical, concept-like approach is offered in three chapters and is delivered with emotion, intelligence, integrity, passion, and poignancy. These qualities, which are often strived for but rarely attained, seem to come from the number of years the band spent together honing their craft…

This was a short lived, but essential band in the annals of what's called the Canterbury Sound, created by British progressive ensembles in the late sixties and early seventies. The band was formed when Robert Wyatt was ousted from Soft Machine, which he'd founded in the mid-sixties. "Matching Mole" was a wonderful debut that included tracks such as 'O Caroline', 'Signed Curtain' and 'Part of the Dance'. This edition has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and is expanded to include five previously unreleased studio session alternate takes, the single versions of 'O Caroline' and 'Signed Curtain', along with two BBC Radio One sessions from 1972…

At the forefront of the new wave coming from the other side of Atlantic, Blue Shift could be seen as a major revelation ! Without any doubt, "Not The Future I Ordered" is one of the most interesting albums of the year 1997. This band plays a flashy and creative Progressive rock from the other side of the world. Their sound is huge, both on the acoustic guitar parts and on the whole sound. The Yes influence (From the glorious early days to the Trevor Rabin era) is noticeable without being a nuisance. The stunning Led Zeppelin cover ("Immigrant Song") proves, if needed, that the American group has lots of other talents to share. The whole reminds of the way Spock's Beard recently realised a successful and modern synthesis of the Seventies…

Plastic Trips (1997). Marzipan & Mustard have released three absolutely sterling CDs, this one is actually a double CD set. This is bubbling, churning, melodic IDM that reminds the listener of Higher Intelligence Agency or Offworld Communications Systems. Yes, it's that good. From beginning to end, the music is ambient, no sharp edges, playful, midtempo bliss, amongst the finest from the glorious mid 90's.

Patrick O'Hearn is an American multi-instrumentalist musician, composer, and recording artist. While his musical repertoire spans a diverse range of music, he is an acclaimed new age and ambient artist in his solo career. In 1985, he began his solo career releasing music, which he continues to this day. Eldorado (1989). This is a marvelous experiment in contemporary, Middle-Eastern-flavored electro-acoustic music. O'Hearn seemed to be embarking on a new direction in his musical career with this thoughtful yet sensuous blending of ancient and modern modes of expression. The album features two prominent Iranian artists - singer Shahla Sarshar and violinist Farid Farjad - though the music was obviously ahead of its time in the notoriously conservative world of adult alternative music…

Prime Mover hails from Finland, but all the band members are Swedes. "Alias Drivkraft" (2004). Belonging to the Swedish minority in Finland, the musicians went on a voyage in search for their own musical identity, and started writing songs in their own native tongue. The music that evolved defies classification, making Prime Mover a true Progressive band since "Alias Drivkraft" (2004) pulls and fuses pieces of many different genres of music. Essentially, the music is a kind of jazzy Progressive folk-rock, spiced up with vintage flauvours…

A Sunday in Autumn (1994). Jon Mark uses his electronic keyboards to produce a CD filled with incredibly evocative music. The melancholy and reflection that flow through every song on this recording are indicative of the time of year when trees go bare, the air grows cold, and winter begins to appear. Some of the songs are tinged with bittersweet memories, others are more minor-key and somber.
Asia Journey (1996). Blending his unique warm and melodic yet still distinctly ambient keyboards with a subtle yet tangible Far Eastern texture, Jon Mark has once again delivered the goods. This man can, apparently, do no wrong…

Interesting band with great flute soloing. They combine plenty of dynamics and changing moods to create both delicate moments and powerful sections. The use extensive flute and classical guitar. The clarinet and sax are also used. The influence from Area is evident. On "Zoicekardi'a" sound like the modern day continuation of bands like Jethro Tull or Dalton with an emphasis on guitar/flute interplay. "Danze D'ansie" is a new jewel from this southern italian band with its original music between prog-folk-theatre in avantgarde point of view through a crazy creative kaleidoscope.

Formed by guitarist John Goodsall (Babylon, Brand X, Sandoz) and drummer Chester Thompson (Zappa, Weather Report, Genesis) who recruited bassist/percussionist Doug Lunn for a first album, Fire Merchants combine the Goodsall/Thompson fire power with a metallic edge. The guys make a lot of noise, do some fantastic playing and have exciting grooves. Imagine a more aggressive and electric version of Brand X and you'll have an idea of what they sound like…
