recommend ONE prog track to a non prog fan...

Postby quix » 22 Jan 2009, 18:06

er... that's it really.

or if you're feeling generous say why you're recommending that particular one...

then i'll listen (depending on how many there are) .... and decide once and for all if i can enjoy it or not.

thanks :D

Try this: Caravan doing "The Dog The Dog He's At It Again"



Caveat: this is a fine prog song, but I'm at work, so I can't tell if the clip is decent quality.
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

King Crimson - 'One More Red Nightmare' from

Image

Looking back to the band's first, seminal album, the song draws on the blueprint of '21st Century Schizoid Man', it also looks forward to the nineties and beyond - apparently it was one of Kurt Cobain's favourite albums.

Robust and simply brilliant.

The sound in this video is kinda shit, unfortunately. I think this is a beautiful song....

What a magical track - love it.
