Grey and Pink ...over Girls Who...and If I Could...though it's close for me.

In the Land of Grey and Pink has won this poll by a country mile!. I had a feeling it was going to win, but not by THAT much. Smile

Frozen Rose is a great outtake from Grey and Pink
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

I really like some stuff on Stunts, Blind Dog, Waterloo and The Album. I’d pick these all ahead of Plump

If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd still Plump for Cunning Stunts In The Land of Grey and Pink because The Album is Better By Far in my opinion. Smile

Don’t get the love Plump. It’s alright is cool, Memory lane i like but the Headloss part is a bit cheesy. Lauberge starts well but drags on. All the other tunes are a bit bland

I like both, but will have to agree with this assessment. That said, I like For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night even better, so that one got my vote.

I'm surprised "Cunning Stunts" has only picked up one vote (from me) out of the 27 votes cast so far. Smile

Moody Blues Days of Future Past (Dec 67)
The Nice - Thoughts Of Emerlist Davjack (March 68)
Procol Harum (début) (November 67)
Family's Foll House (juny 68)

Caravan's first album was released in October 68 ...
Oddly enough Soft Machine's debut is from Dec 68Confused, despite future Caravan members replacing the Softies having left The Wilde Flowers...

Shouldn't you know this by heart, MrPsychoticPaul? Tongue
You're absolutely right! I should have known that the early prog albums by the Moody Blues and Procol Harum both preceded Caravan's debut album. Smile
 
It looks like Procol Harum's debut album from 1967 is the first ever genuine prog album then from your list.


Some sources cite HANSON & KARLSSON's debut album MONUMENT as the very first prog album although being from Sweden it probably wasn't heard by many outside of that nation.

I went through a phase recently of listening to In the Land of Grey and Pink on repeat, over and over - I like it that much. Second favourite is certainly For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night, which sounds very different to early Caravan, but still excellent.
