    1. Not sure how the sudden glut of ProgRock books appeared. This is the second one I've read in a month.Not quite as enjoyable as "Mountains Come Out Of the Sky" but a very nice set of more than 100 review of ProgRock Albums from the last 60's to the mid 70's. Plenty of obscure and lesser known albums and a good set of pointers to explore iTunes and for many hours. Really nice !
