Mine =

Yes, Genesis, Floyd, Oldfield, ELP, ELO

Awesome era, gotta love Prog Rock. Having said that, there's a few modern belters of prog rock out there now.
Led Who ????

Steve Hillage Band for me .... Yup ... I admit to being a definite hippy type in an earlier era...

I saw Van der Graaf Generator, Genesis and Lindisfarne all on the same bill in the 6 bob tour in 1971!
I am sure I have a recent Frost album on my MP3 player - something about 'Experiiments in .......??
I really like Dream Theater, Coheed and Cambria and Mars Volta too.

Isn't this all much more interesting than commenting on pictures

Alas, the two bands I really wanted to see live (ELO and Genesis), well, I never got my act together and secured any tickets, sigh!

Mine?

Yes, Genesis, Floyd, Zeppelin.

Certain works of other bands, such as Pictures at an Exhibition (ELP), Tubular Bells (Oldfield).

Argus, by Wishbone Ash, is one of my all-time favourite albums.

How about 7171 551, a stonking track by Welsh rockers The Man Band? Saw Man supporting Genesis at my local Civic Theatre in 1972 before Genesis became really big. What a night that was!

Or Evening Over Rooftops, Edgar Broughton?

Golden Country Kingdom, by Pete Brown and Piblokto is pure poetry! (Pete Brown wrote many of the lyrics for Cream, another great band)

Another classic album is In The Court of The Crimson King by, of course, King Crimson. Robert Fripp is credited with inventing the term "Progressive Rock" when he was asked in an interview to describe his style of music in one word. His answer, "Progressive."

I was really fortunate in the '70s to see bands such as Floyd, Yes, Genesis, Ash, ELP, Man, Focus, Broughton, Quo, Queen and many others. My biggest regrets were not seeing Zeppelin or Cream.

Afraid my music is stranded in a time warp. When I buy a CD now it is usually to replace something I've already got on vinyl. Must get up to date and listen to some Frost and Porcupine Tree.
