During a decade that defined progressive rock, 1973 was a pivotal year. Influential bands like Yes, Genesis, ELP, Jethro Tull and King Crimson released key albums and there were countless releases from less well known but equally worthy acts in the genre.
1973: The Golden Year of Progressive Rock is a journey through this creative period; stopping off on route to explore symphonic rock, the Canterbury scene, Krautrock, fusion, progressive folk, art rock, space rock, album artwork and much more.
As well as the big names from the year when progressive rock was arguably at its commercial and artistic peak, the book also looks in depth at albums by the likes of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Greenslade, Rick Wakeman, Gong, Le Orme, Can, Gentle Giant, PFM, Renaissance, Caravan, Nektar, Magma and more.
A comprehensive and knowledgeable guide to an era when music incorporated multiple sections, rich textures, intricate time signatures, inspired arrangements and diverse influences performed by skilled musicians.
