This double CD compilation is somewhat unusual in that it is not packed with tracks that every prog lover will already have. The selection has been chosen by Jerry Ewing, editor of Prog magazine, clearly a man who knows his prog. This is an EMI sampler so all the bands featured are from labels associated with EMI.

The compilation can roughly be divided into a first CD that contains mainly classic prog bands from the 70s, and the second CD that concentrates more on tracks that go right up to the present day. The tracks have been chosen for their proggyness, length and relative unfamiliarity. So with Hawkwind, instead of the ubiquitous Silver Machine, we get The Psychedelic Warlords from Hall of the Mountain Grill. There are will known classic period bands such as Jethro Tull and Barclay James Harvest but in amongst them are real finds from relatively unknown bands like Rare Bird and Eloy. There are then prog contributions from bands like Roxy Music and ELO that you wouldn't normally expect to see on such an album.

The second CD continues with classic bands like Tangerine Dream and Marillion but then takes us through Pallas and The Flower Kings to some of the cutting edge prog bands like Frost* and Beardfish.

There are no fillers on this album at all. The album comes in at 2 hours 34 minutes. The tracks are all worth listening to and they are all definitely prog. The booklet has an introduction from Jerry Ewing, full details of each track and includes a thumbnail sized photo of the front of each album. Well worth five stars!

This is not a review.

I must admit I am a Prog Rock fan but this 5 CD set leaves me a little cold- each to their own.

The sad fact is that I have seen 24 of the acts live- Thank you the Hull Brick Company!

At the time of writing Amazon have not given us the actual tracks on these 5 Cds from the labels Harvest, Charisma, Virgin, Liberty, and Inside Out

So here they are.

If I've made a typo please add a not and I will adjust it and credit you with the info., Track Listing

"Prog Rocks!" is a 2 CD compilation of some of the greatest prog artists on the planet and it comes in at a nice price and jam packed with wonderful music; one of the best Prog compilations. There is not a bad choice here and not surprising as "Prog Magazine" editor Jerry Ewing compiled the music. In his liner notes he states what Prog is "intelligently stimulating and thought provoking music that draws from a myriad of influences by musicians unsullied by a fear of displaying a prodigious talent." That's an apt description for this music. It also mentions the progarchives website in passing as follows, "when one leading prog rock website lists almost 30 differing sub-genres of prog, and given the somewhat obsessive nature of the fans themselves, it is perhaps not surprising that debate rages on well over 40-years after progressively inclined artists helped change the face of rock music forever." The obsession we all feel can be found right here on this compilation. A lot of the songs and artists that are well discussed online are here including legends of prog on the first CD and more recent up and comers on the second. Every track is unique and epitomises what is great about prog. As such this makes an excellent introduction to Prog without a doubt. For me personally I had heard most of the songs on CD1 but I was delighted to discover some bands on CD2 that I will definitely pursue further such as Frost. The other great thing about this compilation is the songs are all from original albums but are remastered for some solid gold quality sound. Even songs I had heard before sound even better and it is great to hear them one after another like listening to a prog radio show without having to put up with any breaks.Read more ›
