The Progressive Rock Show with Graham Harfleet

I am sometimes asked what progressive rock music is. It’s best described as a form of rock music that evolved in the late 1960s. It was an attempt to take rock music to new levels of artistic credibility, going beyond the standard verse-chorus based song structures. It typically includes elements drawn from classical, jazz and world music.

Examples of artists within this genre are Emerson Lake & Palmer, Jethro Tull, Yes, The Enid, Supertramp, The Alan Parsons Project, Van Der Graaf Generator, The Tangent, Renaissance, Genesis, Camel, IQ, Barclay James Harvest, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, Spock’s Beard, Frank Zappa, Todd Rundgren, Rush, Triumvirat, Led Zeppelin, Gordon Giltrap, Threshold, Brand X, Focus, Caamora, Golden Earring, Colosseum 2, Santana, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream,  Arena, Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd, Steven Wilson, Haken, Symphony X, Riverside, Mostly Autumn, Vangelis, Ayreon, The Flower Kings, Marillion, King Crimson, Magic Pie, Flying Colors, Opeth, Peter Gabriel, Peter Hammill, Anglagard, Thought Chamber, Phideaux and Wishbone Ash.
