Greetings.

I just bought Salem Hill's "Not Everybody's Gold" - great stuff! I would love to know in what order I should get their albums (i.e. best to worst). Thanks.

Be - their best, IMO
Robbery of Murder
Catotonia

the rest are slightly less great material (other than Puppet Show Live) and are OOP, although you can buy .FLAC files at Mindawn.

Agreed, although Catatonia is OOP (out of print). The others can be bought through Prog Rock Records.

Yes SALEM HILL are a great prog outfit!!

And do try our Guitarist Karl Groves: " Branch upon the ground".

Its a a fine solo album!!!

But also try out:

"The robbery of murder"

"Not everybody´s gold"

"Catatonia"

"BE"

 

They´re everything that any progfreak could ask fore!!!

Kirklott has excellent taste, my friends!

Their latest album Mimi's Magic Moment is an absolute stunner with contributions from  Kansas violinist  David Ragsdale & Glass Hammer keyboardist Fred Schendel . MMM imo is their best so far,  detailed lush production & far more melodic/symphonic  than  the raw, stripped-down, guitar-driven BE, which is of course a masterpiece but for different reasons.     

 I rate this band very highly along with a few other up-and-coming US bands who are worth keeping an eye on such as IZZ & Little  Atlas ... a mix of echolyn, beatles, spocks, yes .... but manage to transcend these. I guess they're a mix between *indie*  and prog but  not  especially lightweight.  And definitely NOT *neo*!

Salem Hill really is worth your while checking out ... see  the mindawn site for  whole album demos & downloads www.mindawn.com

also see Carl Groves' Solo album (listed under *Groves*). Its not especially proggy but really worth checking out if you love SH!
