Incredible, you've really outdone yourself this time my friend. I love how you used the pic from Larks tongue as the centerpiece and your use of colors is simply divine. Terrific job.

Luke said it well, great job again...really great, in fact! Clap

I also really like what you did with the eyes in the Schizoid Man...Gong's Mandala in one and the eye from Aenema in the other...brilliant!

Anyway, it is overwhelmingly a bang-up job.

The part of Brand X and Zappa was able to amuse me.

The highest masterpiece for of course all.

Everything's too fantastic to put into words except the fonts.

This is really something!

I found myself staring at it for minutes on end several times, picking up familiar images and trying to remember the more obscure (to me) references and place them correctly.

Ever thought of having a little competition to see who can come closest to the actual number of references made? No Prizes, but just for the fun.

The scene where the Gentle Giant is hanging out with the Foxtrot Fox and Aqualung makes me very happy. That's a party I would like to attend.

Holy Mackerel! i recognised all my favourite bands on that collage! That went straight to my desktop wallpaper - it proudly waves the flag for all things prog - it spans decades of prog and features all the classic iconic images that sum up the prog world. I am in awe of your talent!

Hi,
 
I love all of these ... but all along I have been missing something and seeing the bottom part of your work, immediatly brought it out for me ... the VW bus lit it up! Let's call it the Ken Casey bus, now.
 
And guess what is missing in all the "progressive" annals of music and history?
 
Yeah ... where a lot of it started in the late 60's, and a lot of this art was in posters around San Francisco, and eventually made it's way to London as well. That's not to say that London did not have the art scenes, it did and then some, and stating that even Yoko was not a valid member of that club would be like saying ... the horror ... the horror ... " and the complete denial of an artistic movement that was quite evident in music and had been quite visible in film and theater and some arts before! Popular music was not immune to it, or slow, but the "commercial" acceptance was hard, and the Beatles White Album is a perfect example of the variety, the explosion of the arts and thoughts all around them!
 
We need to credit these other folks better. I would love to see Iron Butterfly, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Mike Bloomfield, Ram, Spirit, It's A Beautiful Day, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Grateful Dead (early material and long cuts and 6 hour concerts all night!), The Doors, Steve Miller Band, Velvet Underground, and so many others get their deserved due as having exposed and exemplified what the spirt of music was all about, and eventually became known as "progressive".
 
Sadly we do not look at many of these as "progressive" ... but they were the scene that most inspired all the "progressives" that we listen to and love!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

That... is... amazing! Clap
 
I love how the Song for America eagle is juxstaposed right next to the Fly By Night owl, and how the 21st Century Schizoid Man is a nebula, and Larks' Tounges in Aspic is the sun, and, and...
 
I think you get the idea.
