Playing tracks by
Genesis, Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, Strawbs, Phil Manzanera 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.
