Good evening one and all, and particularly to the 2 or 3 prog aficianados who also appreciate the blues. Wink
 
In honor of the 100th anniverary of the first copyrighted blues tune (way back in 1912), the Dark Elf File offers up...
 
Great Acoustic Blues Songs, Part One
 
 
Enjoy!

Hey, it's a new month and a new subject over on the Dark Elf File:

Progressive Blues: The Greatest Twists of an Old Musical Form, Part I...
 
 
Check out the innovative blues techniques of the 1960s and 70s in the first part of a series. Special thanks to the ProgArchives forum folks for their input on this one.

Something new for you over on the Dark Elf File! This time, instead of aural edification, I'm offering a visual stimulus package...

The Greatest Rock Album Covers of All Time, Part I

http://darkelffile.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-greatest-rock-album-covers-of-all.html

The first 25 album covers of an ongoing series. Not surprisingly, prog albums figure prominently.

Well, it's a new month and time for a new installment of The Dark Elf File...

The Saddest Rock Songs of All Time, Part I

http://darkelffile.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-saddest-rock-songs-of-all-time-part.html

So get drunk, curl up in a fetal position and feel absolutely miserable for the several hours worth of listening it will take to get through these 50 songs. I'll be offering up another 50 shortly if you aren't feeling wretched enough.

Enjoy....if you dare...mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Hey, it's new year! What better way to start it off, and in the process offer a bit of prognostication for the way it's going to go, by offering a list of

The Greatest Blues Songs of All Time, Part I...

http://darkelffile.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-greatest-blues-songs-of-all-time.html

So, here's the first fifty tunes, with another fifty coming up in a later installment (or a hundred, depending on how bad this year is).

Fifty more blues standards and forgotten pearls for your listening pleasure.

Well, I've revived, resuscitated and otherwise resurrected my music blog from a few years of inactivity. Considering I haven't done a damn thing with it for quite a while yet it still is getting over a thousand clicks a month, I figured what the hell.

My newest article is "Anthems for the Antsy: Fifteen Songs Under One Minute Long", with a few prog and/or prog-related bands thrown in. Enjoy!
