Listening to the future : the time of progressive rock, 1968-1978 by Bill Martin( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1970s, progressive rock bands like King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull, and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer produced visionary, adventurous works, often of epic length. Since that time, critics and historians of rock music have marginalized the progressive rock era. However, it is a musical and political mistake to ignore this period of tremendous creativity, a period which continues to influence new rock music. Martin shows that there has always been a progressive trend in rock music, and develops a terminology for understanding how a popular avant-garde arose out of the sonic and social materials of rock
