Hello Radioland and the Online Universe!!
It is Wednesday Night! You should know what that means! Now is the time for another Encore Presentation of The Aisle of Plenty. Tonight’s show is from last weekend, Show #332 from 08/20/2016.
This was an overall fun show. Some really great music in this program! There is some old pre-cursor Prog from the likes of The Animals to some lost UK Prog from Lindisfarne- which was one of the early bands with Genesis originally signed to the Charisma label in the early 1970s. There is also some great Moog Synth work from Walter Carlos (Wendy Carlos)- as we take a listen to some Monteverdi from The Well Temepered Synthesizer, the follow up to the Grammy award winning Switched on Bach (1968). There is some Genesis (the original long version of It’s Gonna Get Better from the Mama 12 Inch Vinyl release), as well as some long lost music from the UK Band- Budgie. Cherry Five, which was an Italian Prog band (and the precursor to Goblin)- finishes out Hour 1.
In Hour 2- we travel with some music from Crack the Sky to Phil Collins side Prog Jazz group- Brand X, and some rarely heard Automat from 1978 from Italy. As a side note on Automat- this was an Italian Prog music experiment between two Italian Musicians, where all of the music was performed on the MCS70 Synthesizer- of which there was only ONE of them ever built. We also take a trip back to some EARLY school music from the likes of Journey- BEFORE the Steve Perry years of Corporate Arena Rock radio. “Of a Lifetime” is a great track from the first Journey album released in 1975. There are some great tracks too- from the likes of Rush, Gentle Giant, and closing out the show with some newer style Prog from Pendragon.
