Prog editor Jerry Ewing has revealed the tracklist for his latest Prog Rocks! compilation album, containing 25 impressive tracks across two discs.
The fourth in the series includes Camel, Gong, John Wesley, Bigelf, Riverside, Ayreon, Sound Of Contact, It Bites, Haken, Knifeworld and much more.
He says: “This is perhaps the most diverse of the Prog Rocks! compilations. The difficulty is that you want to include a few well-known tracks that make the CD a desirable purchase for some, while balancing that with more obscure choices that you rarely see on compilations.
“Since Universal became involved in Prog Rocks! it’s opened up a whole new catalogue of progressive bands, which we can hopefully introduce to a new and much wider audience.”
Prog Rocks! Volume Four is accompanied by a batch of 11 Back To Black vinyl reissues of classic albums. It includes Barclay James Harvest, Camel, Caravan, Tangerine Dream and more. Each title was remastered from original analogue tapes and comes in 180g heavyweight vinyl form.
In addition, Prog Rocks! and Universal have confirmed that a further 160 albums have been cut in price. Find out more.
