About the show

Playing tracks by

Brian Eno, ANTHONY PHILIPS, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Tony R. Clef 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. 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.
