@cstack3 @mortte

I entirely agree about Alice! I've always thought Halo Of Flies was a progressive masterpiece (listened to it twice the last few days Approve). As for Second Coming, I always thought that was a highly underrated song, and Dwight Fry is truly terrifying! (in a good way...)

@Hercules

I also agree about the Celtic rock bands. I've always loved the Afro-Celts (seen them live a couple of times - thoroughly recommended), and at Cambridge one time was an artist called Martin Bennett who fused Celtic folk with a rhythm section that was hard-core techno .. you wouldn't think it could possibly work but in a strange way, it did, after I'd made sure I was standing a long way back. Big smile

Perhaps I was a bit by Donovan, but then thinking about it so many of his singles were mould-breakers - Sunshine Superman, Hurdy Gurdy Man, Barabajagal, etc.

Another mold breaker is my Donovan prog choice, "Breezes of Patchouli".  Recorded in the first half of '66 for the Sunshine Superman album, it didn't make the cut and has only appeared on compilations or extended reissues.  It features a mellotron and was recorded around the same time the Beatles first use of the tron by John on Tomorrow Never Knows.  Since Donovan was hanging around with The Beatles I wonder who had the idea to use the tron first, Donovan or John Wink

Apparently Sunshine Superman (a real early psychedelia track) was held off for release for many months. It was actually recorded BEFORE "Revolver" but didn't get issued until some time after. My guess as an answer to your question is that Donovan could quite easily have had the idea first.

And although he hadn't yet used it on an album himself, Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues, who would become popular music's leading practitioner of the mellotron, is the one who introduced Lennon to the instrument.

To me, Mark Fry's "The Witch" off 1972's Dreaming With Alice is Progressive Psychedelic Folk.

A sadly missed band Remember Remember recorded the brilliant song John Candy. More ideas in this one track than many bands have in their entire career, and never considered as prog.

Well worth hunting their back catalogue out.

A rather prog-ish, and downright awesome entry from none other than Mr. Mellow, Cat Stevens

18th Avenue (Kansas City Nightmare)

Billy Joel has had some great prog-ish songs from over the years, including Captain Jack (1973), Prelude / Angry Young Man (1976), and my personal favourite, Scenes From an Italian Restaurant (1977).
Check out my music on my bandcamp!

@Hercules

Thanks you!  AC had some real powerhouse talent with Dennis Dunaway and Mike Bruce!  I think that they really helped to define the Prog idiom, with elaborate stage sets (they were one of the first), long compositions and interesting/unconventional instrumentation.

@BaldJean 

I've always really loved The Faith Healer, but hadn't thought it was prog ... but actually I think you're right!

(How do people get their videos displayed in the post? All I seem able to do is add a hyperlink.)

"Achilles Last Stand" has already been mentioned, but add...

Kashmir
No Quarter
Ten Years Gone

And throw in Prog Blues:
In My Time of Dying
When the Levee Breaks
Nobody's Fault But Mine
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

Quoting posts with video helps as you can see the code.

To use the Morricone video as an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjzHh1WSNpI

You only want the unique identifier letter/number combo after v=, so just tjzHh1WSNpI

You then add tube tags to it, so, and I have to break this with spaces to show it without it becoming embedded it is:

[tube ]tjzHh1WSNpI [/ tube]

If you do that without the spaces, it becomes embedded:



That said, one shouldn't overdo it with video embeds (I've been guilty of this). Lots in a post or on a page will cause some browsers to crash, seize, not load.

I read the other day that Lennon ordered a Mellotron after hearing one on The Silkie's version of "You've got to hide your love away", which he produced.
