A friend and I were hanging out the other night listening to great music on our Mac laptops (hooked up to some great speakers of course).  We're both pretty good about keeping our iTunes libraries straight with years and genres and everything.  We listened to a bunch of great songs and I started to notice the year 1973 coming up again and again (1972 too).  Man do I want a time machine to that year, or more preferably to '72 and stick around for two years then leave (if I have to).  Oh, and to somehow experience all this stuff as if for the first time.  Between his iTunes and mine, and adding a little from my research here at PA, I'm dumbfounded by the releases (and this ain't even all of it)...


1972:
Ys
666 (Aphrodite's Child)
Darwin (Banco)
Fetus and Pollution
BOC's first album
Ege Bamyasi
Captain Beyond
ELP Trilogy (though I'd still be grooving on last year's Tarkus!)
Foxtrot
Octopus and Three Friends
Doremi Fasol Latido
Thick as a Brick
Passio Secundum Mattheum
Obscured by the Clouds
Searching for a Land
Uomo di Pezza
Palepoli
Per un Amico
Quella Vecchia Locanda
Per... Un Mondo Di Cristallo
Reale Accademia di Musica
Prologue - Renaissance
Io Come Io
Close to the Edge
Arrow Head
Vol. 4
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
Clear Spot AND The Spotlight Kid
Waterloo Lily


Exhausted yet? Here's 1973:

Akritas
Les Cimetière des Arlequins
Io Sono Nato Libero
Sulle Corde di Aries
Tyranny And Mutation
Camel
Campo Di Marte
Future Days
Melos (Cervello)
Brain Salad Surgery
Genesis Live and Selling England by the Pound
In a Glass House
Chameleon in the Shadow of the Night
A Passion Play
Larks' Tongues in Aspic
Mekanïk Destruktïw Kommandöh
Maxophone
Inferno
Zarathustra
Felona e Sorona
Photos of Ghosts
Queen I
Ashes are Burning
Contaminazione (Rovescio Della Medaglia)
A Wizard/A True Star
Dedicato a Frazz
On the Wings
L'Uovo di Colombo
Tales From Topographic Oceans and Yessongs
Concerto delle menti
Storie di Uomini e Non
Alphataurus
Over-Night Sensation
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Leg End
Houses of the Holy
Raw Power
Countdown to Ecstasy
Tres Hombres (ZZ)
Dark Side of the Moon



edit: some glaring omissions made up for.  okay, not all prog, but sweet moses what a bunch of records

Why must my spell-checker continually underline the word "prog"?

I wish I'd be born in that time! Shocked
Of course it would have been great. Lots of bands I wish I could see live. Tongue

but if you were back then you'd have to wait for all the good stuff to come out in the late 70s and lose faith in life when the 80s hit

Yet, if you'd been born in that time, you wouldn't have been old enough to enjoy everything that was going on until, perhaps... the 80's, when everything was already over (almost).

However, indeed, I would love to have been around to see those bands live.

On your way to 1972 could you please kill Rick Astley.I'm not sure if I find his music or being Rick Rolled more annoying,either way it must be stopped.

Funny responses. 

Can't believe I left Machine Head and Made in Japan out, sorry, made the list in kind of a hurry.  But that wasn't the point of the list anyway; they did come out in '72 and '73 whether I listed it or not, that's what I'm saying.  I don't care if I missed 50 albums, because even this list would be by far enough.  It's just a mad couple of years for great music!

As far as wishing to be born at that time, that's why I said I wanted a time machine - to have my current mental level, not that of a little kid.  I was a little kid then, but too little to really grasp anything as it came out, certainly too little to go to shows and all that.  I had an older brother who had great records (he got to be born at the "right time", but now he's a bitterly unhappy American neo-con slob, sad, so I'll keep my identity thank you) so I knew a decent amount of this music by the mid-70's by listening (not seeing).  And as young as I was I did to an extent lose faith in life in the 80's!LOL   Smile   Stern Smile   Unhappy   Cry

I was seven and then I was eight.  The family was moved down from Virginia to Georgia and here I am.  Why couldn't it have been Hawaii?  Dammit!!!

I would go back a few more years to 1967 and watch the scenes grow. 72/73 only reap what was sown there. the first, in some cases the second albums of those bands set the standards for what we call prog. King Crimson, Van der Graaf Generator, Magma, Genesis, Yes, Gong, Hawkwind, Amon Düül 2, Guru Guru, Tangerine Dream, Curved Air and many many more,  they all had their beginnings back then or a little later. that''s what would interest me

^ Naturally I could have said the same thing, thought about it.  But I wanted an excuse to list those albumsBig smile

Yeah, as a young piker I used to look at the backs of great first albums by bands (the ones I loved) and it was almost always '67-'69.

Edit:  So, arrive in time machine 1967 (or maybe '66 if you need to get your living situation in order, get your record player ready).  What year do you leave and come back, if at all?  (Imagine the longer you stay the harder it would be to get back - there's somehow a limit.  Okay, I admit it's a silly topic.)

My dream is that I was 18 in 1966 in California  (L.A and Frisco). Staying there until 1969 and see the Doors,Jefferson,Country Joe,Canned Heat,Janis,Grateful Dead etc. Then, in 1969 go to England and see the new comers King Crimson,ELP,Yes,Genesis,VDGG,Pink Floyd,Gentle Giant etc and a few trips to Germany for Amon Dull II,Can,Faust atc and Italy.

I first discovered prog in the spring of 1975, when I was fifteen. A friend introduced me to Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and Blue Cheer (!). I then discovered another friend's brother had a large record collection, featuring the Who, even more Yes and even more Floyd (not to mention Lou Reed, the Stones and a lot of West Coast stuff). By the end of the year, I made yet another friend, who introduced me to ELP and virtually all of the Canterbury Scene (as well as Bowie and John Cale).

This was JUST in the days before punk. All this music was still considered brand-new. We were in heaven.

I want a time machine to the Jurassic era and shoot a documentary.
From a musical point of view? Somewhere in the 80's where I could find all the tapes from the "Cassette Culture".

I was around then (15 in 1972) ... if I could go back in time I would go back to June 1971 kick myself into going to see Genesis play Bedford Corn Exchange instead of missing it like I did at the time. Ouch

Some really interesting and amusing posts on this thread. However, I still regard myself as being very much like the 14 year old kid who listened to Yes, Genesis, KC, Rush, Floyd, and the rest in 1977/78. Even now, at the tender age of 44, I still listen in wonder and absolute rapture at both music I have never heard before, and, of course, the old classics. I listened to Live At Leeds, Rainbow, and Mostly Autumn on the train back home from a meeting today, and was in heaven.

Every time is a great time to be alive and listening to great musicClap

You know, the funny thing is that I was born in '65.  Too young to experience a lot of classic prog artists in directly when they were putting out their best, yet I was still able to experience much starting in the late '70's.  I certainly would not trade off being this age now for being this age back then or even old enough to experience classic prog artists as an adult at the time when I was a kid.  There's too much good stuff going on today and the old stuff is still around to enjoy.  Best of both worlds.  Can't beat it.  I would not hop on that time machine.  Still, an elevator to the moon...
