Not sure if the Blod are regarded as off-topic round these parts but I've been enjoying the reissued Ahead Rings Out. Firmly in the underground blues camp there's nevertheless some early proggy tinges here and there - although these would be further developed on their excellent second album, Getting To This. 
Anyway, I've written a review over on my - blog .

Yeah I think that Blodwyn Pig belong here- there's a jazz rock tinge to their work, but still I feel they'd be a much better candidate for a 'progressive blues' section' that has been mooted a while back. Great album- the remaster plumped for the US running order that had their most famous song 'See My Way', when the last CD had the UK one, but a ton of extra stuff (EMI really did a great job with this album) more than compensates. Top notch reissue.

progressive blues to be sure >> they should be here

let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

  Love 'Getting to This'. Jack Lancasters input is excellent imo. This alone should qualify them.

Looking still the same after all these years...

Should be included under 'progressive blues' as wel as 'Keef Hartley Band' and many others.........
