The Mellow Side of Prog

About the show

Playing tracks by

Tony R. Clef, Willowglass, Soft Machine, National Health, Hugh Hopper & Al Gowen and more.

And now for a something completely different.

Back in 2007 I did a Prog Rock mix that is still one of my favorite low light mixes. You can find the original post here. http://www.mixcloud.com/lowlight/prog-rock-mix/

I've always wanted to do another prog mix. While on a pro rock binge I came across "For Absent Friends" by Genesis and that gave me the idea of doing a mellow prog mix.

In the original mix I tried to stay away from prog rock mainstays like Genesis, Yes & King Crimson. This time I couldn't resist some big names like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Brian Eno & Crimson. Those well known artists combine with some Cantebury scene music from National Health, Soft Machine & Hugh Hopper and Al Gowen. Most of the tunes are vintage 70's music, with only a couple newer tracks from Willowglass & David Gilmore.

I included kind of an oddball cut from Tony R. Clef. It's an acoustic cover of Genesis' "Undertow." Check his YouTube channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/troubleclef.

So glad you liked it! You're right, it's a nice way to wind down, maybe with a cold brew or other liquid refreshment. Cheers!
