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).

Beat Sound – Day 2

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

Beat Sound – Day 1

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
