Try this one from the Attack....I like their sound. BTW John Cann (du Cann) on guitar was later in Andromeda and Atomic Rooster for a while.


Gentle Giant can be hard to get into. One of the most quirky prog bands of the 70's.

I like the old early Brit blues rock bands that were a little proto prog at times. Steamhammer always caught my ear.....try this one..some TYA and Tull influence for sure.

Re: Progressive Rock...?

I'm sure you know this lp....Mick Abrams wanted to have his own band.....Tull didn't need two front men.

One more from the old days....another one of those Brit blues bands that wanted to crossover into a more esoteric form of blues....a bit like Steamhammer and some Tull sounds also. I like all of those early Brit bands that did atmospheric blues rock or psych with a prog edge.

Re: Progressive Rock...?

If you see my name on any music sight you will sooner or later see me posting one of my all time favorites, David Sancious. This is from my favorite album by him "True Stories".

That was nice..I have heard of him but never bought anything.
I like the music..not a big fan of the vocals on that cut.

I thought the Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation would be one of those. But then I bought Doctor Dunbar's Prescription and I didn't know what to think.

That album (if my memory serves me) may be the only one (or two) with vocals. The majority of his stuff are instrumentals.

I do like his few albums he did with the Retaliation..he's drummed with many people over the years including Zappa.

Re: Progressive Rock...?

Yes, but how would you categorize the music of the Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation?

I don't think the Retaliation material was what I personally call 'progressive rock'...but blues rock with progressive elements at times.
He did play with bands/artists later that are in the prog rock area.
Again it's subjective .

Wow! That was great. I'm going to look up more from Steamhammer without delay.

Re: Progressive Rock...?

Glad you liked it...what did you think of the above tracks by Blodwyn Pig and Gravy Train?

Re: Progressive Rock...?

Liked these guys also...not all that proggy but for a while Christine Perfect sang with them on a few lp.s , sound a bit like F Mac at times.

Music Note Re: Progressive Rock...?

Chicken Shack I really like! Here with Peter Green guesting on guitar:



And here from after Christine McVie had left to join Fleetwood Mac:



Simply fabulous!

The rest I'm still rotating through prior to venturing an opinion. You and Dwill posted too many for a more immediate response.

Excellent track! I'll have to look up more by Gravy Train.

Yes I do. And I like See My Way but it's not among my favourite Blodwyn Pig tracks.

I quite like these two tracks as well from the ones above though:

Magic in the Air - The Attack
Inside Out - Gentle Giant

The two by David Sancious though leave me underwhelmed.

The Blodwyn Pig stuff is good fun...Abrams of course had a solo lp later but while decent blues it never had that something that the Pig did.
The Attack were one of those Brit bands that while good never became big. I didn't discover them until I started looking into obscure early Brit pop and freakbeat things.
That Giant track is from their last studio ...dwill123 posted it. I like the early GG material better.

Another one of those short lived Brit bands....heavy bluesy psych rock...John Cann (Ducann) on guitar...from The Attack..he later formed Atomic Rooster.
