I was tempted, but have all of it on vinyl, original releases
What we need is a good remastered CD box of his first five albums

I wasn’t sure about getting it either as I’d only gone to the store to buy Movies but as that album is included in its entirety I decided to go for it. It’s a good set and probably all the Holger Czukay I’ll ever need, most of it is better than latter-day Can.

Only album from this band, released in 2014 but really rather good.

Lots of 70s influences including the obvious Floyd and Genesis but derivative claptrap it ain’t. A nice mixture of neo and traditional prog.

Kino are one of those collaborative “supergroups” featuring luminaries from the modern prog scene. Members are drawn from the likes of It Bites, Lonely Robot, Marillion and Steven Wilson....

This is their 2nd album, just released. Neo prog, melodic and decent on 1st listen.

They were a super-group, hate that term,

very interesting clip



The second part of a two-part BBC Schools documentary from the 'Scene' strand narrated by Sarah Ward, looking at the fortunes of two very different rock bands.

Part one profiled The Sweet at the height of their success - but part two looks at Renia, a North London prog rock group struggling to make an impact, let alone a breakthrough. As we discover, being part-timers didn't exactly help...

Their only album, First Offenders, was released in 1973 - and despite some good reviews and a little Radio 1 airplay, Renia soon disappeared without trace. Infact, they split in the same month as this film was broadcast.

Appropriately, while part one (about The Sweet) was shot in colour, this second programme was made in black and white.

Featuring cameos from 'Whispering' Bob Harris and BBC Radio 1 producer Jeff Griffin.

First broadcast on BBC1 at 2.02pm on Thursday 7th March 1974.

Thanks very much for posting this, John, it was a fascinating watch.

It's just a shame the band weren't very good. Never had a chance really, with those songs.

I had my copy of the Heavy Horses Steven Wilson remix arrive today.

I’ve never owned it before, so have nothing to compare it to, but the sound quality on this CD is just stunning.

Really impressive.
