About the show
Playing tracks by
Gentle Giant, Le Orme, Camel, Steve Hackett, Caravan and more.
Growing up in the 70's I listened to a lot of prog rock...Genesis, Yes, King Crimson. I still listen to this music & have been on a big prog rock binge lately. I pulled this 3 year old mix out of the Low Light Mixes archive because I figured that Mixcloud & Facebook folks may not have heard it.
For this mix I stayed away from obvious choices like ELP, Genesis, Yes etc. Instead I used artists such as PFM, Egg, Gilgamesh, Le Orme, etc. With a well known artist like Pink Floyd, I picked cuts from less well known albums. This mix is definitely not a best of prog rock. It's just a collections of tunes that work well together.
