Description

The tendency to reduce the Progressive Rock to a variant Synphonic, which champions diehard enthusiasts and detractors alike share promotes unconnected with the subtleties of history and restricted to a few derivatives formal schemes of the classical tradition of classical music biased view do not do justice to the complex metamorphosis that characterized the British music scene of the early seventies. Hatching, swing, apotheosis and rattle Progressive Music belong to a period much less luminous and far more recessive than those sixties so revered by many as the golden age of Rock. A different time averaging the next decade will plunge Europe into a perplexity acquire an almost apocalyptic inflection. This first volume of the analysis of a pair of seminal albums that appeared in the summer of 1967: "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band "by The Beatles and" The Piper at the Gates of Dawn "by Pink Floyd. The multiple transformations that Progressive Rock until its decline and loss of influence begins with the transition from Psychedelia to Prog to 1967 & 1968. From the next year underground sound more urgent and thin stems, away from the optimism of that summer of love, laying the foundations of the original prog. Dangerous relations between pop music and symphony orchestras in the late sixties (Procol Harum, The Moody Blues and The Nice) is one of its consequences. Another is the emergence of a hippie counterculture in the area of ??Notting Hill and its derivations in the circuit of festivals free. Finally, three large trials addressing some of the most popular bands of the genre: Yes, Pink Floyd and Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Two other volumes, focusing respectively on relations of Progressive Music with Folk and Jazz, complete a work that insists conceive the Prog as part of a broader evolution of British culture and society. Erudite and entertaining at the same time, this book is an invitation to know in depth a key period of popular music of the twentieth century.
