4.0 out of 5 stars INTRIGUING AND IMAGINATIVE COLLECTION 19 Oct 2011
By J. McCarraher TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This 3 disc collection differs from the prog rock compilation formula by going off the beaten path and finding buried gems which have probably rarely surfaced in recent times.

Whilst many choices on this album are overtly fuelled by budget constraints (e.g. the Pink Floyd covers, Ian Anderson rather than Tull and various live offerings (Hawkwind for instance), it holds together rather nicely as a collection. The Anderson tracks and Dark Side of the Moon cover versions are all very appealing - it has to be said that all in all, this compilation is very well thought through.

Full marks for including German and Italian bands of the genre as well as the more well known offerings.

The only track that seems to sit uncomfortably is 'Whiter Shade of Pale' - an odd choice given the other bands included.

The full track listing is below.

1. Looking Around (Yes
2. Celebration (Premiata Forneria Marconi
3. Living in the Past (Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull
4. No Mule's Fool (Family

9. Tomorrow Night (Atomic Rooster
10. Los Endos (Patrick Moraz (Yes/Moody Blues
11. Run Like Hell (Keith Emerson & Dweezil Zappa
12. You Keep Me Hangin' On (Vanilla Fudge
13. The Great Gig in the Sky (Steve Howe & Rick Wakeman
14. Skating Away on the Thin Ice of the New Day (Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull
15. I Will Return (Springwater
Disc: 2
1. In the Land of Grey and Pink (Caravan

5.0 out of 5 stars A well thought out progession 24 Feb 2012
By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
My co reviewer J. McCarraher "James" has been kind enough to list the total contents of this CD. So I bought it.

I'm very impressed.

The first impression you get is of quality. The box set actually looks and feels good.
High quality printing and the fold out box suggests luxury. The cover is by an artist entitled 'Ciruelo' and his theme is repeated on each CD featuring a different part of the entire painting, which is reprinted on the booklet which folds out to become a 6 CD sized poster. On the reverse is a comprehensive listing part Essay not extensive but excusable- there is so much on these CDs, by Marcelo Montolivo.
45 tracks are feature with a round 15 on each CD.

Each CD has a theme and a separate title.
Disc one is entitled "The greatest Progressive Songs" and features a more well known but impressive set list.
Yes, Jethro Tull, Family and Rick Wakeman are represented (see 'James' review for track listings) but the great thing is that there is a good selection of Pink Floyd Songs performed by some really great musicians. I recognised the tracks and know that they are featured on the Pink Box: Songs Of Pink Floyd Now this is a really worthwhile purchase and features as you've guessed Pink Floyd Songs.

Do not be put off for one minute by the fact that the songs and tunes are Pink Floyd yet not played by those groups members. The tracks really are wonderful and feature really great musicians at the top of their powers playing great songs. Listen and you will understand... honest.

The second Disc is entitled "The Canterbury Scene, Space Rock and Krautrock. So it's a broad theme indeed.

As much as i consider myself open-minded, as I believe most Progressive Rock enthusiasts are, I found it hard to digest large parts of this compilation.

This 3-CD set was produced in Argentine in 2010 by a company called Music Brokers, that according to their site is "... specializing in the re-release of popular music across a number of genres at budget prices."

I won't rewrite the track list as I can see the first reviewer has done that, and I can refer you to the publisher's site on [...] where you can also find samples for the 3 first tracks on each of the compilation CD's.

I am not such an expert Prog Rock fan, but I still have a few hundreds of records, and generally the standard studio releases.

That said, I was a bit surprised when I listened for the first time, as obviously this was not what I expected, since often I heard different versions from those humming in my head.

A short read in the accompanied fold-out and track list, revealed that a large number of tracks where tribute/cover versions of either different performers from the industry, (such as Tomorrow doing Beatles or Yes or Brand X playing Genesis or Yes/King Crimson members playing Pink Floyd) or different performers playing other versions to their own stuff (Such as Ian Anderson playing Jethro Tull or Hawkwind/ Rick Wakeman/ Caravan playing different versions than their known ones).

While this is not necessarily bad, it should have been mentioned in the product description or at least on the product's cover, and certainly could have been a welcome if the versions came close or better to the original.

I have been a Prog Rock fan for a long time. There are some good bands and tunes and some off the wall, to my way of thinking. I did fall asleep during a Tangerine Dream concert!
