Capricorn College - Orfeo 2000 (1972) (Italian Symphonic Prog)

Capricorn College is one of those borderline italian progressive rock bands from the seventies that tried to surface.

Led by composer Mario Barigazzi, the band only released two albums on the Kansas label, both containing a mix of early 70's italian melodic pop with clear progressive inspiration.
The first one, in particular, titled "Orfeo 2000", is generally regarded as the best of the two, especially for the instrumental parts, while the second, released as Barimar & Capricorn College, contains shorter songs. The band also released five singles.
The band split after the second LP, in 1974. http://www.progarchives.com/

1. Io Più Te (3:31)
2. Adamitico Sound (5:41)
3. Particolare Amore (4:25)

Venegoni & Co - Mosaico (2000) (Jazz Rock/Fusion) (Italy) New link

The band was formed by Luigi "Gigi" Venegoni, ex guitarist of ARTI & MESTIERI. This was an "open" band whith twenty musicians to have collaborated with during the years. A stable nucleus of six musicians who recorded the band's two first LP's on Cramps.

More jazz-rock oriented than ARTI & MESTIERI, Venegoni & Co. ideally close the old italian calssic prog groups. They played in the famous live tribute to Demetrio Stratos of 1979. Their music is instrumental, obviously dominated by Venegoni's fluid and elegant guitar playing.

Though definitely less prog-inspired than the first two Arti & Mestieri albums, both Rumore Rosso and Sarabanda are usually considered an interesting listen for jazz-rock fans in general and for rock progressivo italiano lovers in particular.

Two later studio albums on CD, Nocturne (as a trio with Marco Cimino from ERRATA CORRIGE) and Mosaico were more in a new-age style, while the recent live CD's Rumore Rosso Vivo and Live...somewhere in the seventies... feature registrazione lives from different line-ups in 1978 and 1979. The last one, in particular, has a very good sound's quality.

- Rumore rosso, studio album (1977)
- Sarabanda, studio album (1979)
- Nocturne, studio album (1989)
- Mosaico, studio album (2000)

After Crying - De Profundis (1996) (Symphonic Prog) (Hungary)

Banda Hungara, altamente recomendada! Todos os álbuns da banda são excelentes, este é um dos que não podem faltar em qualquer boa discoteca de progressivo.

Very important band from the rich Hungarian prog scene which makes a very complex and moody music. There is a huge variety in their music among their discography. Some albums are very dark, yet beautiful, with a calm atmosphere provided by cellos and violins among moody keyboards and guitars. Other albums hold a more consistent sound where you'll find ELP influences (mainly on the Hammond passages).

Really original ! "De Profundis" always offers a refined blend of classical and folk, but the singing and some light pop accents (use of drums) evoke FLAIRCK. This is classical chamber rock, delicate and peaceful. Definitely a must in any prog rock collection.

Carpe Diem - Cueille le Jour (1976) (Symphonic Prog) (France)

This French group was founded on the Riviera (Nice more precisely) as had SHYLOCK also. They both managed to make two albums both on the Musea catalogue nowadays. However they do sound different, CARPE DIEM sounding more diversified and also holds some singing, as well as some wind instruments (flute & saxes). One can say that they had that typical French symphonic prog sound of the second part of the 70's much like PULSAR, ATOLL and a bit less in the ANGE and MONA LISA mould.

Their two albums are highly regarded by progheads but do not ooze originality, always eyeing towards the British references. Still well worth the discovery, though.

Turid - 1971-73 - "Vittras Visor" "Bilder" (2 albums) (Sweden)

One of Sweden's best female singer/songwriters of the '70s. Turid became famous in the underground of Stockholm as a Swedish Buffy Saint Marie or a Lotte Lenya or a Joni Mitchell. Her voice has been described as "a thin thread of gold." She won a radio competition and was soon noticed outside the underground. She was chased by the bigger record companies but took a stand and chose Silence that just had started, and in 1971 her first record Vittras Visor hit the desks. She worked with the finest musicians around at the time, such as Kenny Håkansson (Kebnekajse), Björn Jason Lindh and Palle Danielsson. This record is half in English and half in Swedish. Silence released two more albums -- Bilder in 1973 and Tredje Dagen in 1975 before moving out to the countryside. Even if you don't understand her brilliant and poetic lyrics you can still enjoy this record and her beautiful voice and music.
Turid represents a certain flowery apex and fans of eccentric folk vocalists such as Linda Perhacs, Vashti Bunyan, Karen Dalton & Joanna Newsom ought to investigate. http://www.forcedexposure.com/artists/turid.html

Turid was a member of Kebnekaise between 1971 and 1974. Initially she sang in English and was very much inspired by Joni Mitchell, but by the time her first solo album, Vittras Visor, came out in 1971 she had switched to Swedish and found her own sound.
Her best song, Den Gamla Vanliga Historien, was released as a single in 1972 and later included on her magnum opus, the 1973 album Bilder, an album which also included her second-best song Tom I Bollen.
In 1977 she left progg label Silence and signed to the more commercial Metronome. Of course the proggers (see the link in the Pugh section above) turned their backs on her. Bastards.
Turid's trademark was her delicate, fluttering voice which is instantly recognizable. A current Scandinavian singer like Ane Brun has more than a little Turid flavor in her voice. http://monkeybastardsv20.blogspot.com/2008/12/brief-history-of-swedish-rock.html

Khan - Space Shanty (1972) (Canterbury Scene) (UK) NEW LINK

Space Shanty é o único álbum da banda inglesa Khan, lançado em 1972. O Khan tinha entre seus membros dois dos maiores expoentes da cena Canterbury: Steve Hillage e Dave Stewart - ambos já haviam trabalhado juntos no Uriel, banda que deu origem ao Egg.

A sonoridade de Space Shanty é tipíca das bandas de Canterbury, ou seja, várias influências de jazz, desde as composições até os metódos de improviso, aliadas à psicodelia. Como diferencial, o Khan traz uma proximidade maior com o space ock,criando um som vagamente similar ao que o Gong começaria a fazer quando recebesse Hillage entre seus membros. Link e comentários by Léo!

O álbum até hoje é um marco na história do rock progressivo, um disco essencial.

Julian Jay Savarin - Waiters on the dance (1971)

O grupo inglês Julian’s Treatment foi um projeto do escritor e tecladista Julian Jay Savarin. A idéia de Julian era musicar uma trilogia sobre ficção científica, escrita por ele próprio.

O primeiro álbum, chamado "A Time Before This", lançado em 1970 acabou não alcançando o resultado esperado. O disco, conceitual, composto de 12 faixas, descreve temas sobre a civilização perdida de Atlantida. O disco se destaca pelos vocais da australiana Cathy Pruden.

Em 1971 lança a segunda parte da trilogia, "Waiters on the Dance", apenas sob o nome de Julian Jay Savarin, que é baseado no livro "Lemmus: A Time Trilogy" do próprio Julian.

Mesmo com a qualidade citada, o disco novamente não conseguiu atingir as vendas esperadas. A trilogia nem mesmo seria acabada, pois Julian, mesmo sendo um bom letrista e instrumentista acabaria por tornar-se um escritor e novelista, dedicando seu tempo para editar obras sobre ficção científica, tendo sido melhor sucedido com a publicação de seus livros.

Ouvindo seus discos, principalmente este "Waiters on the Dance", percebe-se o grande e qualidade musical. E´fruto de seu tempo, e que tempo. Viva os anos 70! Agradeço a postagem ao João Luiz, mais um grande amigo do blog, thanks Luiz!!

Os Mutantes - Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol (1974)

Clássico do Progressivo Brasileiro. Este é o sexto álbum do grupo que contava apenas com Sérgio Dias da formação original do grupo. Aqui, a banda já está totalmente no Rock Progressivo, com belos solos de guitarras, teclados viajantes, letras surreais e mais toda a virtuosidade e genialidade de Sérgio Dias! Link e comentários do Ivan Mesquita.

Altamente recomendado!
