Yeah dude, I totally wanna check out some more Focus.

Norrin, I'm stoked that you listened to Colosseum. Dude, did you notice the crazy panning? On one of the songs on Daughter of Time, the drums (in mono) are panned hard left, and in another the vocals are in the same spot. I love that album, but they did some weird shit with production back then. Still haven't got Valentyne. Tried downloading from you, but you didn't have any slots open, nugga.

Shawn, I listened to Triumvirat. That album was pretty sweet, too.

Colosseum - Daughter of Time. Late 60s prog band. This album has an amazing sound to it. (Track 3!). It really has a delicious vintage 60s flavor to it. Incredible but strange songwriting. Maybe not for prog newbs. Apparently their album The Valentyne Suite is their best, though.

Druid - Toward the Sun. Distinct 70s sound. Pretty intense songwriting, and I really like the singer.


YEAH! Colosseum fuckin' rocks! I was looking for a site that had Paradigm Shift hosted on it so I could listen at school and I found this weird russian site with tons of crazy prog songs and they had some colosseum on there. It was fantastic. Druid was on there too, I got hooked on the few things I actually found there (that had full mp3s at least)

Other sweet ass stuff I found there:
String Driven Thing (listen to Heartfeeder from The Machine That Cried)
Spirit (definitely check out Mechanical World)
Ad Infinitum,
Carpathia Project
Amon Duul II
Anglagard,
Colosseum II (the reformed Colosseum)
Island
Man
Mushroom (definitely listen to King of Alba, it's fuckin' sweet)
Terreno Baldio
Tractor

Sweet list Daemon, I'll keep my eyes peeled for those! Colosseum II is pretty rad as well, but I think their finest work is Valentyne.

House, When I was in audio school, they told us that that was a method of production back in the day, to create the effect of the drummer being on one side of the stage and the band on the other. Wacky stuff man! I have to grant you a slot next time. My bad. Did you get a chance to check out Igginbottoms Wrench? That album will blow you away! Especially for 1969!

Other bands I've recently come across are:

Celeste - Principe di un Giorno - Soft, almost folkish prog. Very mellow and emotional.
Alas - Alas - Really long songs, but very rad songs. Especially track 1.
Perigeo - Genealogia - La Valle dei Templi - A definition of 70's jazz/prog. (instrumental as far as I could tell)
The Soft Machine - The Soft Machine - Guitar by Allan Holdsworth! Flipping amazing album!
Dj-vu - Between the leaves - Kind of remind me of the Minibosses style of playing. Check track 4. around 6 minutes.
Hatfield & The North - Hatfield & The North - Smooth yet very weird stuff.

SWEET! My buddy just gave me Attakh and Udu Wudu from Magma! I'm totally excited to listen now.
I'm too lazy to look but if Camel hasn't been mentioned I can't stress them enough. Same guy turned me on to them and they're FANTASTIC! It's like Yes meets King Crimson meets Pink Floyd peppered with Rush, Jethro Tull, Frank Zappa and Opeth. Go pick up A Compact Compilation to get an overview of their sound, totally worth it.

Definitely! Camel is very worth checking out.

Also, I am not sure if you guys have been checking this site but, http://www.progarchives.com/ has LOTS of info that will assist you in your prog findings.

There is also http://www.progressor.net/

I checked out progarchives and read about the Canterbury Scene. I downloaded some albums by Caravan, which were supposed to be the quintessential Canterbury band. Didn't really dig it too much. Have any of you guys ever listened to any of the bands from the Canterbury scene?

Soft Machine is the tops. Check out the album called Bundles. I actually meant to say that one, not the self titled one.

Norrin, I'm listening to Locanda Delle Fate - Forse... This album is amazing. This is easily one of the most richly melodic albums I've ever heard.

Download this now, guys!

Colosseum II & Andrew Lloyd Webber - Variations (1978)

I just found this the other day. It has so thoroughly blown my mind! Track 4 reminds me of the theme from The Pradator only in prog Rock form. Love those drums too!

Alf Emil Eik -Joy & Breath of Eternity (1979)

I can't accurately put this band into words. They are very creative... That is all. If you see it, GET IT! Track 2 ftw!

Celeste - Principe Di Un Giorno (1976)

Not sure if they have been mentioned or not yet. They are really REALLY mellow and relaxing, melodic and emotional prog. The vocals are orgasmicaly rad.

A lot of them are actually full mp3s, which is nice because some of this stuff (at least from what I've noticed) is hard to get a hold of.

Then again, I don't use Torrents or Limewire or anything...

I would imagine that this stuff would be near impossible to get from torrents. But yeah, I have no idea either. Thanks for the link though bro!

Right before bed I find these guys out.. What luck.

LEB I SOL - Kalabalak

Track 3. Bistra voda (4:49)

The Prog Archives have a playable version of this track just above the reviews section. I must say this track is almost EXACTLY what I started this thread for.
