Vanilla Fudge - Renaissance (1968) ATCO Records/SD 33-244 - 1st US Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Vanilla Fudge - Renaissance
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz / 900mb
Label: ATCO Records/SD 33-244 | Released: 1968 | Genre: Psychedelic-Rock

Another fundamental brick in the prog-rock music wall.
This band started its career by doing artistic cover versions from tunes composed by other people, and this third album presents their own matured composing skills. Earlier "The Beat Goes On" was more like an abstract artsy tryout when compared to this masterpiece in my opinion. The most dominant elements are still the strong organ chord layers, powerful vocal harmonies and very strong emotional load, resembling a state of religious pathos.

Billy Cobham – Spectrum (1973) Atlantic/SD 7268 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Billy Cobham – Spectrum
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Atlantic/SD 7268 | Released: 1973 | This Issue: 197? |Genre: Jazz-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
There’s no question that Billy Cobham is one of the most talented and influencial drummers on the planet. I had high hopes going into this one that it would be another “Birds Of Fire” shred-fest. Not quite, although the first song delivers big time in that style. Jan Hammer, his old MAHIVISHNU ORCHESTRA band mate helps out, while Tommy Bolin doesn’t disappoint on guitars. We also get some bass, sax, flugelhorn, trumpet and flute to round out this mostly jazzy sounding album.
Focus ‎– Hamburger Concerto (1974) ATCO Records/SD 36-100 - CA Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Focus ‎– Hamburger Concerto
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz
Label: ATCO Records/SD 36-100 | Release: 1974 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Focus has always been a band with sense of humor, not only for the strange sounds and yodeling emitted by Thijs Van Leer but also for the jokes they made of sacred cows.
For example Hamburger Concerto is a play of words with Brandenburg Concerto by Johan Sebastian Bach (Not easy to find a bigger or more sacred cow anywhere), they work with the obvious Baroque influence in a delightful way just to make a Concert to.."the hamburger", something that only few and brave genius as Thijs Van Leer would ever dare to do.
Jan Akkerman & Kaz Lux ‎- Eli (1976) Atlantic/SD 18210 - US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Jan Akkerman & Kaz Lux ‎- Eli
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz
Label: Atlantic/SD 18210 | Release: 1976 | Genre: Rock-Fusion

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Out of limited number of albums that I have on Jan Akkerman's solo works, this is the album that I like most for a very simple and basic reason: the music is nice even though not that progressive or not that jazz.
Stephen Stills - Stephen Stills (1970) Atlantic/SD 7202 - 1st US Monarch Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Stephen Stills - Stephen Stills
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Atlantic/SD 7202 | Release: 1970 | Genre: Country-Rock

Talk about understatement – there's Stephen Stills on the cover, acoustic guitar in hand, promising a personal singer/songwriter-type statement. And there is some of that – even a lot of that personal music-making – on Stephen Stills, but it's all couched in astonishingly bold musical terms. Stephen Stills is top-heavy with 1970 sensibilities, to be sure, from the dedication to the memory of Jimi Hendrix to the now piggish-seeming message of "Love the One You're With."
Chris Squire ‎- Fish Out Of Water (1975) Atlantic/SD 18159 - Original US Pressing - RE-POST In 24bit/96kHz

Mastered By Arun Chakraverty

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Chris Squire's single solo effort is an essential masterpiece. It certainly is not a lost Yes album just merely Squire's exceptional creation which demonstrates his importance in progressive rock and equally his influence in this genre.

A live album masterpiece. No other Yes live album comes close to this. As far as quality goes and the criticism it receives, I just don't get it.
King Crimson - In The Wake Of Poseidon (1970) Atlantic/SD 8266 (ST) - US Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz

King Crimson - In The Wake Of Poseidon

Label: Atlantic/SD 8266 (ST) | Release: 1970 | Reissue: 1975 | Genre: Progressive-Rock

This reissue sound very nice! (This rip can be your next "go to" version of this LP.)
Another excellent 1975 Atlantic reissue. I've heard different pressings of this LP and this has me amazed. Normally one wrinkle your nose when you hear the word "re-issue". But like everything, there are good and bad … and good reissues, they are very good! This is another great example, to clear doubts listen the most troubled and silent tracks: The Devil's Triangle (First 25 seconds), Cadence And Cascade, Peace - A Theme, etc. Is that the quality, detail, texture and sound separation… is without discussion.
Jean-Luc Ponty - A Taste For Passion ‎(1979) Atlantic/SD 19253 (SP) - US Pressing - NEW 2016 RIP - LP In 24bit/96kHz

Mastered At Sterling Sound By Greg Calbi
Label: Atlantic/SD 19253 (SP) | Release: 1979 | Genre: Jazz-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Dreamy. Ethereal. Beautiful. These are the words that first spring to mind whenever I listen to A Taste for Passion by Jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. Not only is the music incredibly powerful and memorable, but the playing itself is magnificent. Ponty has a way with musical phrasing that allows him to experiment with a myriad of different styles and approaches, yet somehow make it all fit together like a perfectly-cut jigsaw puzzle. One moment you're being swept away by otherworldly, melodious pieces such as ''Stay With Me'' and the album;s title track, and the next minute you may find yourself grooving out to one of the album's Jazz- aimed masterworks such as the wonderful ''Sunset Drive''. There really isn't much to dislike here, unless you want to get picky and say that much too much musical ground is covered. Granted, it may have appealed to more people has the music stayed in one area for the most part, but then we wouldn't have the wonderful, eclectic masterpiece that we have today.
