Happy birthday to Evel Knievel (1938), Ziggy Marley (1968) and Jimmy Seals (Seals & Crofts) (1942).
Beat Sound – Day 3
Continuing the ranking:
#21 top ranked band / artist: Roger Waters
Their recommended album: “Amused To Death” (1992), which is now on SA-CD, but wasn’t in 2010
#22 top ranked band: Popol Vuh
Their recommended album: “In Den Garten Pharaos” (1972), which I haven’t heard in a long time!
#23 top ranked band: Can
Their recommended album: “Future Days” (1973), an album I can recommend, too!
#24 top ranked band: Sebastian Hardie
Their recommended album: “Four Moments” (1975), odd to see an Australian band on this list
#25 top ranked band: Camel
Their recommended album: “The Snow Goose” (1975), I like it better now than I did in 1975
#26 top ranked band: Gentle Giant
Their recommended album: “Gentle Giant” (1970), I own a copy, but it’s not my favorite
#27 top ranked band / artist: Brian Eno
Their recommended album: “Music For Films” (1978), not really progressive rock, is it?
#28 top ranked band / artist: Steve Hillage
Their recommended album: “Fish Rising” (1975), probably his best album, too!
#29 top ranked band: Porcupine Tree
Their recommended album: “Deadwing” (2005), never got into them…
#30 top ranked band: Van der Graaf Generator
Their recommended album: “Still Life” (1976), definitely not my favorite VDGG album, but it’s on SA-CD now
And just outside those rankings (in order) you get Renaissance “Prologue” (1972), Fripp & Eno “(No Pussyfooting” (1973), The Moody Blues “Days Of Future Passed” (1967), Focus “Hamburger Concerto” (1974), and Atoll “L’Araignee-Mal” (1975).
Happy birthday Rick Parfitt (Status Quo) (1948) – this is also the day Gene Vincent died in 1971.
“Beat Sound” – Day 2
To continue from yesterday’s “ranking”…
#11 top ranked band: Curved Air, who have no audiophile releases, as far as I know
Their recommended album: “Air Cut” (1973), I like “Phantasmagoria” better
#12 top ranked band: U.K., who didn’t have any audiophile releases in 2010, but now have SA-CD’s available
Their recommended album: “U.K.” (1978), probably their best – but generally I am not a fan
#13 top ranked band / artist: Anthony Philips, who, in 2010, had no audiophile releases
His recommended album: “The Geese and The Ghost” (1977), which I do enjoy
#14 top ranked band: Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, who had recently had their Dischi albums released as Blu-spec CD’s
Their recommended album: “Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso” (their first album, 1972) which I found copies of
#15 top ranked band: Hatfield & The North, still no audiophile releases on this band
Their recommended album: “The Rotter’s Club” (1975), er, not my favorite…
#16 top ranked band: England, whose sole album had recently been re-released as a Blu=spec CD.
Their recommended album: “Garden Shed” (1977), I’m not much of a fan – passed their sell-by date
#17 top ranked band: Jon and Vangelis, no audiophile releases
Their recommended album: “The Friends of Mr. Cairo” (1981), which didn’t stand out, as I recall
#18 top ranked band: Faust, no audiophile releases
Their recommended album: “Faust So Far (1972), I prefer their debut album, actually
#19 top ranked band / artist: Peter Gabriel, who had many audiophile (SA-CD’s) released
Their recommended album: “Peter Gabriel” (his first album, 1977), which I did find an SA-CD of
#20 top ranked band: P.F.M., no audiophile releases
Their recommended album: “Photos of Ghosts” (1973), looks to be the English version – so I have an original LP & a nice CD version of that one
Happy birthday Daryl Hall (of Hall & Oates) (1946). The Beatles 45 “Love Me Do” charted today in England, 1962.
In 2010, I bought a Japanese magazine based on it’s cover: “Beat Sound”. I bought it secondhand. The cover of this edition is a mélange of progressive bands – different to the one the Japanese “Record Collector’s Magazine”! “Beat Sound” appears to be a high end audiophile magazine…
Anyway, I like their rankings, so I’ll be sharing some of that with y’all over the next few days!
“The Sound Labyrinth of Progressive Rock”
#1 top ranked band: King Crimson, as their 5.1 mixes had just been released!
I bought a set of them, up to, but not including “Beat”
#2 top ranked band: Pink Floyd, as an SA-CD of “Dark Side of the Moon” had been released
I have all 3 x versions of “DSOTM” on SA-CD, but it’s my least favorite PF album!
#3 top ranked band: Yes, as a DVD-A of “Fragile” had already been released
Eventually the Japanese made an SA-CD of it in 5.1, so that’s what I got first
#4 top ranked band: Emerson, Lake & Palmer, as “Brain Salad Surgery” had already been released as an SA-CD in England
I bought the first few albums by them as DVD-A’s, and I have “BSS” as an SA-CD
#5 top ranked band: Tangerine Dream, whose audiophile released were in the future;
I have “Phaedra” & “Rubycon” as SA-CD’s, in 2016
#6 top ranked band: Gong, who have no audiophile releases, to my knowledge
I really like Gong, but am not aware of any audiophile releases on them.
#7 top ranked band: Area, who have no audiophile releases, to my knowledge
Not a fan of Area, for the most part – never heard anything that grabbed me
#8 top ranked band / artist: Mike Oldfield
Yes I got the 2CD + DVD-A 5.1 from Japan, later on I found I found a 4.0 “Tubular Bells” in Tokyo
#9 top ranked band: Caravan, who had recently released an SA-CD of “In The Land of Grey & Pink”
Which I duly bought; also picked up on “For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night” SA-CD
#10 top ranked band: Soft Machine, who they mention as having their stuff mastered as DSD!
I think all of their CBS albums got DSD mastered in Japan
Happy birthday Jean Luc Ponty (1942) and Mark Farner (of Grand Funk Railroad) (1948)!
I am usually always astounded at the detail of Japanese paper sleeve CD’s. In some instances, you get almost as many bonus tracks as the original album (certainly the title I am currently most impressed with “The Animals” has 23 tracks to the original LP’s 12 tracks, including some previously unreleased material)!
Or we could go in the direction of The Who “Live At Leeds” CD, which has 8 bonus tracks – and very careful attention to detail fully reproduced packaging, all the way down to a miniature of the infamous poster! This looks so much like a UK original LP, there is even a miniature staple holding the cover together!
Another Who title I was impressed with is the 2CD “My Generation”, which (separately) reproduces both the US & UK covers! That’s right – included is “The Who Sings My Generation” US LP in miniature, and in stereo! This title has all 30 tracks usually associated with this release; I also have an SA-CD of it with all 30 tracks on one disc!
I also found on this last trip to Tokyo “Sticky Fingers” by The Rolling Stones with an actual zipper on the cover! And the copy I found has a “Rock Age” obi included, courtesy of Disk Union. (This one was actually generated by Toshiba, a company that no longer exists).
I also dragged back a whole set of Electric Light Orchestra titles (I actually already has the first album and “ELO 2”); 11 albums of E.L.O.! Each complete with all original packaging. Alas, no “Best of” in this batch!
In the non-paper sleeve world, I found some humorous bootleg CD’s: Kevin Ayers / Caravan and Hatfield & The North 2CD set “The Canterbury Tapes” – great sound! ; Bill Bruford “Back To The Edge” 2CD from the Uptown Theatre, Kansas City July 11th, 1980. 11 tracks of Dave Stewart, Jeff Berlin, Bill Bruford and “the unknown” John Clark! Stereo, soundboard (or broadcast?) recording.
The store I found those bootleg CD’s in actually had a progressive rock section to look through!
Last to mention, I found a bootleg Blu-ray David Bowie “David Bowie Is” disc – proving that the bootleggers are trying to keep up with things.

Happy birthday Roland Orzabal (Tears For Fears) (1961), John Lee Hooker (1917) and Ian Mitchell (Bay City Rollers) (1958).
RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – Futurista (Midi / School, 1986); I never got the paper sleeve SHM-CD version, so I don’t know what’s on that one, but the CD always had 1 more song than the LP, usually the 45 version of “G.T.”, the single from this LP.
This LP has some interesting guests – most notably Kenji Suzuki (the guitarist), New Yorker guitarist Arto Lindsay, and Japanese female vocalist Cano Caoli. Also guesting is Maceo Parker on sax and vocalist Bernard Fowler (recently seen with The Rolling Stones). They also thank TRA Project, Bill Laswell and Akiko Yano (Sakamoto’s ex-wife).
“Broadway Boogie Woogie” has more “Bladerunner” (feature film) samples than most music made these days; at least it’s snappy!
Second song doesn’t have any English, but it is pleasant ambient-type “typical” Sakamoto stuff.
“Ballet Mecanique” has some reasonably nice processed vocals from Bernard Fowler. “G.T. II” is a re-make of “G.T.”, so treat accordingly.
“Milan, 1909” does indeed invoke the thought of Italy many years ago. “Variety Show” is a computer genius showing off. “Verso Lo Schermo” features Cano Caoli, the singer of Cioccolata.
“Water IS Life” is the shortest song on this LP @ 1:52. The album ends with “Parolibre”, again, sung by Cano Caoli – but it always sounded like Miharu Koshi to me (Hosono’s sidekick). And at least the CD version ends with “G.T.”, the original 45 version, a great song.
Happy birthday Mick Jagger (1943) and Roger Taylor (Queen) (1949).
Japanese dub reggae! I saw them live, long ago – in Santa Monica, CA! I have never looked them up, when I visit Tokyo, Japan. Kazufumi Kodama is the main guy. I believe the bass player passed away a while ago. I remember getting the cassette of “No. 0” before there were any CD’s released, courtesy of the TRA Project. No, I don’t have “everything” by them…

Happy birthday to singer / songwriter Bob Dylan (1941)!
“Strange Days” magazine in Japan has ceased publishing a print edition of their magazine. I have been reading it faithfully since about 2009, though I do have issues prior to 2009. They were always very good about writing about all progressive rock. Apparently they first published in 1998 – I couldn’t understand their message on their page…
So, “Time Machine” came from them. The recent popular “Progressive Rock” 6 part list came from a magazine that still publishes: ‘Record Collector’s Magazine’!
I am sorry to see “Strange Days” join Music Life, Swing Journal etc. Let’s hope ‘Record Collector’s Magazine’ is healthy!
