YES, THE SOUND CHASER DAYS

TRAS MÁS DE 40 AÑOS COMO LÍDERES DE UN GÉNERO QUE AYUDARON A CREAR, LA HERENCIA MUSICAL DE YES ES SENCILLAMENTE INMENSA. PARA TODOS SUS MUCHOS SEGUIDORES SERÁ UN PLACER VOLVER A ESCUCHAR ALGUNOS ÁLBUMES EN FORMATO MP3 Y FLAC PROCEDENTE DE LA EDICIÓN JAPONESA SHM-CD DEL 2009

YES formed in 1968 with Jon ANDERSON (vocals), Chris SQUIRE (bass, vocals), Peter BANKS (guitar, vocals), Tony KAYE (keyboards), and Bill BRUFORD (drums). Well-known and influential mainstream progressive from the 1970's, and still around in some form ever since, they were highly influential in their heyday, especially notable for the really creative "Relayer". During the 1970s, YES pioneered the use of synthesizers and sound effects in modern music. Driven by Jon's artistic vision, they produced such timeless, symphonic-rock masterworks as "Roundabout," "Close To the Edge," and "Awaken". In the 1980s, YES pushed new digital sampling technologies to their limits, selling millions of records and influencing a generation of digital musicians with classics like "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" and "Rhythm Of Love". Moving through the 1990s and into the new millennium, the band keeps expanding its boundaries by using the latest hard-disk recording techniques and, most recently, working with a full orchestra to create their genre-defying music. YES gained large popularity with their brand of mysticism and grand-scale compositions. "Fragile" and "Close to the Edge" are considered their best works as it's symphonic, complex, cerebral, spiritual and moving. These albums featured beautiful harmonies and strong, occasionally heavy playing. Also, "Fragile" contained the popular hit song "Roundabout". This was followed by the controversial "Tales from Topographic Oceans" LP, which was a double album consisting of only four 20-minute length suites centering on religious concepts. Also, "Relayer" was their most experimental, yet grandiose and symphonic. They broke up, until the new jewel "Going For The One" and its incredible "Awaken" was issued in 1977. In later years, YES would go through many transformations. There were other very good YES albums after "Going For The One" ("Drama", "Keys To Ascension" and suprisingly "The Ladder") but this is the last great album. • Text by Prog Archives

THE STRAWBS, FROM THE WITCHWOOD

STRAWBS ES SIN DUDA ALGUNA UNA DE LAS BANDAS MÁS QUERIDAS Y APRECIADAS DEL FOLK PROGRESIVO BRITÁNICO. CON UNA LARGUÍSIMA DISCOGRAFÍA A SUS ESPALDAS, MUCHOS DE SUS ÁLBUMES SON IMPRESCINDIBLES EN CUALQUIER BUENA COLECCIÓN. "FROM THE WITCHWOOD" Y "HERO & HEROINE" SON DOS OBRAS MAESTRAS.
One of the better British progressive groups, The STRAWBS were a 60's folk and medieval band turned prog-rock with the help of Dave COUSINS (the heart and soul of this group) and Rick WAKEMAN "master of the keyboards". WAKEMAN is featured on the albums "Strawbs", "Dragonfly", "Just A Collection of...", and "From The Witchwood" before he joined YES. The line-up for the group changed markedly over the years. Their sound has been in a state of constant evolution combining English folk and progressive sounds to form their unique style. Critics seem to have a preference for the STRAWBS in the early Seventies when the group consisted of Tony & John HOOPER, John FORD, Richard HUDSON and keyboard virtuoso Rick WAKEMAN. The group ceased to exist at the end of the 1970s, and COUSINS embarked on some solo projects. STRAWBS would appeal to fans of bands like FAIRPORT CONVENTION, STEELEYE SPAN, PENTANGLE, etc. They have recorded over 15 albums through the years, with various lineups around the core of Dave COUSINS who offered beautiful melodic compositions. Every STRAWBS album between "Witchwood" and "Nomadness" has something unique to offer. A perfect introduction to the sound of The STRAWBS is the compilation-CD "A Choice of Strawbs" (16 tracks). It features all their best material from their most creative and "symphonic" period (between '71 and '74). The music of The STRAWBS frequently ranges from folky (acoustic guitars) and classic (piano and harpsichord) to bombastic, symphonic rock (fiery electric guitar and glorious Mellotron in the vein of BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST and The MOODY BLUES). The vocals are powerful with a lot of expression.

P.F.M. THE ITALIAN TREASURE

DOS ÁLBUMES IMPRESCINDIBLES SIN LOS QUE RESULTA IMPOSIBLE ENTENDER LA IMPORTANCIA DEL ROCK PROGRESIVO ITALIANO COMO APORTACIÓN DECISIVA AL GÉNERO. ELEGANTES, PRECIOSISTAS, VIRTUOSOS, ORIGINALES, SENCILLAMENTE INCOMPARABLES, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI MERECEN INSCRIBIR SU NOMBRE EN LOS ANALES DEL PROG ROCK A LA MISMA ALTURA QUE E,L&P, KING CRIMSON, YES O GENESIS...

The pioneer of Italian Progressive groups, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI (PFM for short) is one of the leaders of the 70s prog movement. PFM developed a style which is uniquely Italian while maintaining links with the rest of the prog world. A lyrical, romantic and delicate music, full of fineness. A great melodic and instrumental richness, somptuous compositions and arrangements. Sometimes compared with the early King Crimson, the group had its own musical personality, with its elegant music.
