Cirkel was a short-lived Dutch Prog act from the town of Gorinchem. They were active during the early-80's, featuring Hans den Hartog on guitars/keyboards, Hennie van Mourik on lead vocals/bass, Chris van Hoogdalem on guitars and Ad Struijk of the Art/Punk Rock group The Divorce on drums. Their sole album ''The First Goodbye'' was recorded at the Ballad Sound Studio in Vuren and was a private 83' release on Goodbye Records. Reinier Bruijns contributed his acoustic guitar on one track. Similar-sounding with tons of other 80's bands influenced by Classic Prog, Cirkel played a melodic Neo Prog with sensitive vocals and interesting instrumental variety, split in two different styles. Some tracks are fairly symphonic with good keyboard layers and evident inspirations from bands like Genesis and Camel, performed in the way Prog music was delivered in the 80's…

German band Rousseau issued three albums during the Eighties ("Flower In Asphalt", "Retreat" and "Square The Circle"), that have all been issued or reissued by Musea. We could define those masterpieces as in the same vein as early Camel, Caravan and other sophisticated English bands. This line-up performs a very romantic and elaborated music that is fond of nostalgic ambiences. The band is mainly instrumental and their style is mainly based on layers and fluid keyboards parts as well as splendid flute solos and airy guitar.

This album from 1984 sees a remarkable return to form by Los Jaivas. After following-up the brilliant Alturas De Macchu Picchu with a sharp drop in quality for Aconcagua) they rebounded with this equally specatular work. Obras De Violeta Parra is a dramatic re-interpretation of the folk songs of Violeta Parra (a folk singer/socialist activist who was not related to the trio of Parra brothers who formed the backbone of Los Jaivas). This is no ordinary tribute album, for while Los Jaivas is occassionally faithful to the Parra original, their tendency is to use her material to drape their own extended compostions around. Indeed 6 of the 10 tracks here clock are in the 8-12 minute range. While most of the band are at the top of their game, it is pianist Claudio Parra and drummer Gabriel Parra who shine the brightest here.

As the progressive movement was making more and more adept in La Belle Province, more and more groups got contracts and as Celebration record lost Harmonium to CBS, they offered a contract to Opus 5. This band can be seen as a good cross in between Harmonium and Maneige or Sloche. Some Gentle Giant and Jethro Tull influences are also evident. Their first album is full of delicious melodies with soft yet incisive vocals and great flute passages all on 5 superb compositions by five superb musicians.

Magic Pie has become a household name for progfans around the world with their blend of classic prog and 70’s hard rock inspired by bands such as Spocks Beard, Dream Theater, Genesis, Pink Floyd, The Flower Kings, Transatlantic, Kansas, Deep Purple, Yes etc. Fronted by bandleader and guitar supremo Kim Stenberg, the band are known for their epic, energetic, melodic and sometimes heavy prog rock with splendid vocal harmonies and great musicianship.
"King For A Day" (2015) manages to pull together all that is modern day progressive rock, with a healthy nod to the '70s of course, but satisfying fully those who crave musical complexity as well as enchanting, memorable melodies.

Från En Plats Du Ej Kan Se (From a Place You Cannot See) is Swedish band Beardfish debut album. It´s a retro prog rock album with that special Swedish touch that a band like The Flower Kings also posses. Beardfish is a bit more simple in their approach to the genre that the elaborate compositions of The Flower Kings. This doesn´t make them any less exciting though. There are both songs that are sung in Swedish and songs that are sung in English on Från En Plats Du Ej Kan Se.

Continuing a long tradition of Canterbury 'supergroups', Mashu evolved out of a decade-long musical collaboration between Hugh Hopper and Mark Hewins, first officially documented on their duo release Adreamor (1995, Impetus Records), taken from recordings made at an improvised gig at London's Vortex Club in April 1994. With the arrival of former Gong percussionist Shyamal Maïtra, the idea of an improvising collective making extensive use of electric instruments and Midi technology was taken a step further. Mashu made its debut at London's Vortex Jazz Bar on February 26th, 1995.

As a longtime member of one of the groups that helped create heavy metal (Deep Purple, for the uninitiated), it's understandable to expect a solo outing by bassist Roger Glover to be geared toward headbangers. But as evidenced by his fifth solo album overall, 2011's If Life Was Easy, Glover has opted to follow a bluesier, roots rocky path. Which is understandable, because the whole point of doing a solo album should be to step out from under Purple's high-decibel shadow. As a case in point, a pair of tunes feature Glover's daughter Gillian Glover on vocals: "Set Your Imagination Free" and "Get Away (Can't Let You)," with the former falling in "ballad" category while the latter is a blues-rocker with blaring horn work.
