5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent book about an excellent era, 16 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prophets & Sages: An Illustrated Guide to Underground and Progressive Rock 1967-1975 (Paperback)
An excellent reference book for anyone interested in this very productive and musically rich era.
Printed in black and white with a coloured section featuring the sleeve artwork of most of the albums reviewed within the book. The book is a real pleasure to read. Sectioned yearly and featuring a wealth of press cuttings / advertisements which were first published in the music press at the time. These I feel, add to the books appeal.

Each album featured is reviewed giving its original label and catalogue number accompanied by a bw pic of the original album cover, if it is currently available the current label and number is also given. Band personnel details and histories are given and each review has interesting information relating to the creation of each recording.

Each recording has been lovingly reasearched and the book covers well known acts such as Yes, King Crimson, Camel and Genesis alongside lesser known acts such as Khan, Rare Bird, Affinity and Beggars Opera.
The book has had me browsing YouTube to try and grab a listen to acts I havent heard and revisiting old favourites on several occasions.
