Rock On! Wednesday, 29 September – Jethro Tull, BJH, Renaissance, Focus, Mellow Candle & Mushroom

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday September 15th. Dan’s pick of the week: Jethro Tull (Stand Up), Barclay James Harvest (Everyone Is Everybody Else), Renaissance (Prologue), Focus (Moving Waves), Mellow Candle (Swaddling Songs) & Mushroom (Early One Morning).

Jethro Tull is een Britse progressieve rockband die werd opgericht in 1967. Hun muziek is herkenbaar aan de opmerkelijke zangstijl en het unieke dwarsfluitwerk van Ian Anderson, aan de ongewone en vaak complexe liedconstructies en aan de uitmuntende teksten.

Stand Up is het tweede studioalbum van de Britse rockband Jethro Tull, uitgebracht in 1969. Het was het eerste Jethro Tull album met gitarist Martin Barre, die later de langstzittende gitarist van de band zou worden.

Markwin Meeuws van Prog Wereld: “Voor vele Tull-fans, inclusief ondergetekende, is dit feitelijke de eerste plaat waarop het later klassiek geworden Tull-geluid gestalte krijgt.… Read more...

Rock On! Wednesday, 15 September – Onde, Quando, Como, Porquê, Cantamos Pessoas Vivas

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday September 15th. Dan’s pick of the week: Quarteto 1111 (Onde, Quando, Como, Porquê, Cantamos Pessoas Vivas), Petrus Castrus (Ascenção E Queda), Tantra (Mistérios E Maravilhas), Banda Do Casaco (Hoje Há Conquilhas Amanhã Não Sabemos), José Cid (10.000 Anos Depois Entre Vénus E Marte) & Saga (Homo Sapiens).

De ontwikkeling van de rockscene in Portugal was beperkt vanwege het isolement van het land, dat tot in 1974 een fascistische dictatuur was. Na de Anjerrevolutie van 1974, werd Portugal de thuisbasis van een actieve progressieve rockscene, met bands als Tantra, Petrus Castrus, Banda do Casaco en het zeer succesvolle Quarteto 1111.

Prog Archives review: “I see this album as, to the mellotron, the same as Thick as a Brick to the flute in rock.… Read more...
