The best wizards and goblins concept album isn't Prog:

"You know what uranium is, right?
Itís this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

^Both Bob Johnson and Peter knight are former members of Steeleye Span. This album, based on Lord Dunsany's novel The King Of Elfland's Daughter, could easily qualify as prog folk. It's also a concept album.

The cover is by Jimmy Cauty, otherwise known as Rockman Rock, co-founder of both The Orb and The KLF.

He as also responsible for drawing one of the most popular LotR posters of all time:

Prog can be anything. Thats what prog is. Yes it can be about wizards and goblins but it can also be about chess. (Your Move by Yes). Or it can just be about the same things that normal rock songs are about. Thats the great thing about progressive rock, it can be anything. And before anyone gets mad i know the song is actually called Ive Seen All Good People thats just what that part of the song is called.
