Remember The Future [CD/SACD Hybrid]
1.  Remember The Future [CD/SACD Hybrid] by Nektar
The list author says:
  "Some riffs repeat a little too often initially - but what a way to tell a story - evolution told in a revolutionary way.  Play it loud, much under-rated in the UK"
Used & New from: £52.69

Cunning Stunts
2.  Cunning Stunts by Caravan
The list author says:
  "A spoonerism to make any school boy giggle like a little girl, but the superb music and well crafted lyrics soon bring you around, a great group, great songs, For Richard is a masterpiece"
£8.27   Used & New from: £4.50
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Mirage
3.  Mirage by Camel
The list author says:
  "With the possible exception of Breathless I could have chosen any Camel recording, Mirage is rocky, crisp and faultless"
£4.99   Used & New from: £2.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

In The Court Of The Crimson King [Original Master Edition]
4.  In The Court Of The Crimson King [Original Master Edition] by King Crimson
The list author says:
  "Love them or hate them, they influenced many.  Avoid Earthbound (it's a poor recording of a live performence) but the others are okay and at times outstanding"
£8.49   Used & New from: £6.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (164 customer reviews)

Relayer
5.  Relayer by Yes
The list author says:
  "Not 1st choice for an introduction to Yes, but a powerful collection of songs with crescendos and moods a plenty entwined with Jon Anderson's unique vocals. The bonus tracks shows the work put in"
£6.13   Used & New from: £3.03
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (48 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Asia
6.  Asia by Asia
The list author says:
  "Bits of Yes, King Crimson and others, this was an attempt to form a supergroup in the prog rock sense, it worked early on.  Good catchy tunes and riffs, a little commercial for purists of prog rock"
£4.99   Used & New from: £2.81
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Bedside Manners Are Extra
7.  Bedside Manners Are Extra by Greenslade
The list author says:
  "What! No guitar! No, but those keyboards produce some great sounds, fast tunes and some tracks even have lyrics.  The bass is always superb."
Used & New from: £2.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Moving Waves
8.  Moving Waves by Focus
The list author says:
  "A Dutch band, who may have smoked 'something' before, during and certainly after recording this (and most others I suspect).  Can be heavy going in places, but typical of 70s rock apart from the flute"
£10.28   Used & New from: £6.21
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Trespass
9.  Trespass by Genesis
The list author says:
  "Trespass is a favourite Genesis album of mine.  Beautifully crafted songs, subtle guitar and keyboard work lyrics to make you wonder.  Far better than the later commercial drivel"
£17.09   Used & New from: £3.37
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (56 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Camembert Electrique
10.  Camembert Electrique by Gong
The list author says:
  "I first purchased the LP for 59p (the change from buying Ricochet-TD) and a whole new world of music opened up.  Start here get the rest, humour music peace and love to you all (progressive hippies?)"
£5.99   Used & New from: £5.29
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)
