Hey all,
my uncle has birthday today, and I'd like to make him a present of a good prog album released on March 25. Can you recommend any, or at least how to find them by the criteria? 

Thanks!

HI,

You'll be able to search MusicBrainz database by release date here

https://musicbrainz.org/search

You can combine other tags too - take 10 minutes to learn your way around the query synthax (a tip: don't use wildcard symbol in the beginning of the date, do it like this 1???-03-25 or 2???-03-25)

Good luck

I tend to listen to my collection by albums release dates, but I couldn't find anything exactly from the 25th of March. I can see Genesis' And then there were three released on March the 24th and Camel's Moonmadness from March the 26th though. How old is your uncle, perhaps he would accept an album issued on the year he was born in? Or Year + month? When it comes to Marches, with disregard to particular days, there were more than a couple of lovely progressive albums issued:

Kansas - Kansas
Camel - Mirage and Moonmadness
Jethro Tull - Thick as a brick
Marillion's Fugazi and Script for a jester's tear
Pink Floyd - Dark side of the Moon and Division bell
King Crimson - Larks' tonques in aspic
Genesis' And then there were three + Duke
Mahavischnu Orchestra - Birds of fire
Haken - Aquarius

Not on the 25th but the 24th, yesterday, Steve Hackett just released his new album "The Night Siren".

Thanks all! 
@Darious, have you also used musicbrainz? I'd like to get the same list for August for myself now :D

Haven't used the musicbrainz.

Augusts also carry some of the greats:

Brad - Welcome to Discovery Park (13)
Mahavishnu Orchestra - The Inner Mounting Flame (14)
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue (17)
Yes - Drama (18)
Moon Safari - Himlabacken vol. 1 (21)
Renaissance - Prologue (August release assumed, as recorded in June/July that year)
Camel - Stationary Traveller

This only is based on what I have got in my collection though.
