As Nice As Mother Makes It
After two very robust but patchy albums the Nice adopted a slightly different approach to their third by exploiting a half live/half studio hybrid. They felt that this (on the advice of their new manager Tony Stratton-Smith) would showcase the 'best of both worlds' as the studio precedents were not felt to do justice to their live performances.

Excellent addition to any prog-rock music collection.
It is not possible to overestimate the Nice's importance to Progressive Rock. In their moment, they were prog and if the eye-opening debut Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack didn't show that, this dazzling follow-up did. Sure they're so old and dated you'd never put them on unless alone in the house.

SHADOWFAX. Nice name for a progressive rock band. At least that's how they started off. Named after Gandalf's a horse in Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings. They are often classified as new age, but their first album really wasn't, it was rather quite like a more rocking version of OREGON and had a mixture of hard and soft songs. And really their latter albums weren't completely although they lost some of their harder edge and devoted themselves to more mellow fair.

One thing is quite certain: ou can love this album to death or loathe it with every fiber of your being, but you can’t really ignore it. From the gorgeusly disturbing gatefold sleeve, displaying a masterpiece of Gothic artwork by Swiss cult artist R.H. Giger (of “Alien” fame), down to the unabashed self-indulgence of its musical content, “Brain Salad Surgery” is a compendium of everything progressive rock is all about, the good, the bad and the ugly. It is loud, metallic, and harsh, undeniably bombastic, though it can also be melodic and soothing – a true rollercoaster ride of an album, swinging from the beautiful, English choirboy vocals of “Jerusalem” (with wonderful lyrics courtesy of one Mr William Blake) to the all-out progressive orgy that is “Karn Evil 9”.
Elton John – The Elton John ‘Live’ Collection (1979) Pickwick Records/PDA 047 – 2 LP/UK Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Label: Pickwick Records/PDA 047 | Released: 1979 | Genre: Pop-Rock

The British label Pickwick/Hallmark, is characterized by making re-editions. This time I scored another point by purchasing this double LP’s live by Elton John many, many years ago, with two concerts recorded in the 70s decade (1970 – 1974). I say a success because the records are intact, just like their original versions and the best in a single double album! What more can I ask for?

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
As a “Tronmaniac” it was inevitable that one day I would stumble upon the album 10.000 Anos Depois Entre Vénus E Marte by singer and keyboard player José Cid, this is Mellotron Heaven on Earth! Then I discovered that José Cid once joined the Portuguese five piece band Quarteto 1111 and from that moment I was very determined to get an album. Thanks to a Portuguese PA friend (you know who you are) I got a copy and was finally able to listen to this highly acclaimed and most progressive Portuguese progrock effort.
The Early Music Consort – Renaissance Suite (1974) His Master’s Voice/HQS 1415 – 1st UK Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz

David Munrow & The Early Music Consort Of London – Renaissance Suite/Music From The Soundtrack Film “La Course En Tête”
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900b & 200mb
Label: His Master’s Voice ‎– HQS 1415 | Released: 1974 | Genre: Renaissance

This album is a real rarity, not for the style of music nor its interpreters, the strange thing is that this music was produced especially for a film and not a vintage film! It was used to accompany the notable Belgian cyclist Eddy Merckx (?). It was somewhat controversial the mixture of Renaissance music and the documentary about this cyclist in those times.
