Jethro Tull- Progressive folk rock
King Crimson- Eclectic prog
Pink Floyd-Psychedelic space rock
Roxy Music- Crossover prog
Spooky Tooth-Proto prog
Vanilla Fudge -Proto prog
Moody Blues- Crossover prog
Here then is another list of bands from the late sixties all of whom I regarded as progressive rock bands at the time:
Jimi Hendrix Experience
Ten Years After
I was surprised to learn early this century (from this board actually) that the "progressive rock" term had morphed into "prog" and had been co-opted by prog enthusiasts as a reference to only the art rock bands of the 1970's.
How though would you yourself categorize the bands above?
