I saw them in concert twice. Montreal in 79 and Los Angeles in 82

When i said "Brit pop" i meant that i confused Supertramp for Supergrass. Supergrass were a 90's "brit pop" band. Then when i looked up supertramp i realized my mistake seeing that they were a 70's prog-band. I probably didn't explain myself properly. But i look forward to listening - thanks for posting. I am in my 20's so i was not around to hear those bands from the 70's but i do love prog and its nice to be able to delve in again. :beerchug:

I find these kinds of discussions interesting, even though I'm not a Supertramp fan per se (sorry :wink_face:). Doing a quick search for "best prog rock" bands, here are the first three lists I found under a reader's poll on Rolling Stone:

 

1. Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull 2: Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd 3: Foxtrot by Genesis 4: Tarkus by Emerson, Lake & Palmer 5: Close to the Edge

 

1 genesis "foxtrot" 2 king crimson "in the court of the crimson king" 3 yes "close to the edge" 4 pink floyd "meddle" 5 genesis "selling england by the pound" 6 king crimson "red" 7 van der graaf "pawn hearts" 8 focus "hamburger concerto" 9 yes "fragile" 10 camel "moonmadnessy Yes 6: Starless and Bible Black by King Crimson 7: A Farewell to Kings by Rush 8: Animals by Pink Floyd 9: Selling England by the Pound by Genesis 10: Minstrel in the Gallery by Jethro Tull

 

1) The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis 2) Pawn Hearts - Van Der Graaf Generator 3) Red - King Crimson 4) Close To The Edge - Yes 5) Brain Salad Surgery - Emerson, Lake & Palmer 6) Octopus - Gentle Giant 7) Meddle - Pink Floyd 8) Aqualung - Jethro Tull 9) Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield 10) Moonmadness - Camel

 

So, I can see why it might be easy to miss ST on a survey of "must have prog". I'm sure I would miss some great early 60's rock just prior to my time on the planet, even though I enjoy early 60's rock.

I put King crimson - "larks tongues in aspic"over any of those.  just my 2 cents

Good to know as I'm just delving into King Crimson. I have In the Court of the Crimson King and Red so far. Was thinking of picking up Larks Tongue in Aspic or In the Wake of Poseidon next. Both good moves?

Anne-Sophie Mutter, Trondheim Soloists - Vivaldi : The Four Seasons

 

NFB-12 > LD MKIV > HD600.

 

Just a modest set-up, but the recording itself is quite stunning.  One of my better purchases late last year

It's live and the precision, balance and flow of this piece is displayed in as near to a perfect way as I can imagine.

 

I have lots of Bruckner, Celibidache, Karajan... but will give this one a try. Thanks for the recommendation.

My pleasure. What I love about it is its lack of affectation. The clarity of the score is presented so vividly and given it's a live performance, the Dresden Staatskapelle play with such refinement and accuracy. It's also great to hear a truly authentic and dark Germanic orchestral sound. The brass in particular lack the edginess that can plague the British and American orchestras in repertoire like this. These guys blend as a homogenous whole, something that really lends itself to Bruckner's scoring, in my opinion. Enjoy!

For those "entering" prog music - it is not "spoken in English only"- check Premiata Forneria Marconi from Italy. I posted one of their recent vids just a few posts back in this thread.

 

Regarding KC, both of the above are good moves. My personal favourite is Starless and Bible Black http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starless_and_Bible_Black .

I actually used the term "brit pop" half-jokingly because, like markm1 above, I also never thought of Supertramp as "Prog Rock." I think they are "Regular Rock" whatever that is. And it so happens that King Crimson passed me by completely - Never listened to them until a couple years ago.

 

Also magiccabbage, your posts stand out here for their intelligence and taste and honestly, I assumed you were older. Being in your 20's, I guess I can see now how you missed them. Plus I suppose I'm older than I think.

 

I grew up in Montreal in the 70's and early 80's and Supertramp were just HUGE back then - they filled 15,000+ seat stadiums wherever they performed. In my mind, they were right up there with Queen, Genesis, Aerosmith, Rush, etc. Tell me you've heard of them...please!!!! :wink:

 

Well, in 30 years, maybe somebody will tell you they've never heard of Justin Beiber...lol.

 

Seriously, I was being overly dramatic mostly for humorous effect, so I hope you weren't too offended.

 

Oh, and here's an album for today...

Crime of the Century - Supertramp 

 

 

Now they're planning the crime of the century
Well what will it be? 


Read all about their schemes and adventuring
It's well worth a fee

So roll up and see

 

And they rape the universe
How they've gone from bad to worse


Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory? 
Rip off the masks and let see.
But that's no right - oh no, what's the story? 


There's you and there's me

That can't be right.
