Prophets & Sages: An Illustrated Guide to Underground and Progressive Rock 1967-1975 Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A well-informed perspective on 100 great albums of this period, without discriminating between legendary and lesser-known works


Between 1967 and 1975, "progressive" album-oriented rock became internationally popular, making some of the musicians involved major stars in the process. Many of the acts from that golden era are still performing and their influence is still widely recognized and acknowledged by musicians of all generations. Others, on the other hand, left behind records that never managed to receive the recognition they deserved. Here, legends such as the Moody Blues, Hawkwind, Genesis, King Crimson, and Mike Oldfield sit comfortably alongside more obscure artists like Egg, Khan, Webb, and Bo Hansson. In-depth accounts of the makings of these artists' classic albums, illustrations, album artwork, and photographs provide a comprehensive history for fans of the genre. It also features sub-section detailing "Thirty of the Greatest Progressive and Underground Rock Albums You May Never Have Heard" and a look at "Ten Great Progressive and Underground Rock singles," as well as cover art from esteemed music compiler, annotater, and designer Phil Smee, known for creating the Mötorhead logo.
