A spinoff of its parent magazine, Classic Rock Presents Prog takes a look at progressive music and the artists who weave them together. Each issue takes a soul-searching foray into the hearts and minds of the heroes of rock, reviewing both new and old releases. Building upon the history of some of the most genre-defining pieces ever devised and those who followed who continue to refine, revolutionise and completely discard the formulas of those who came before. Reflecting on the proud genesis of this unexpected genre, Classic Rock Presents Prog is an able tutor for those in the dark about the evolution of progressive music, and a tonic for existing fans.
Welcome to the latest mix of new progressive sounds on this equally new Prog magazine cover disc. IQ, Cheer-Accident, Fish On Friday, Miriodor and more.

Sky Dancing - Nada Masala Vol. 2 (2001). Sky Dancing - Nada Masala Vol. 2 is Dakini's second label compilation, the follow-up to Vol. 1, which has been the label's best-selling and most popular release so far. Vol. 1 quickly sold out its first and second pressings, and has now been re-released in the US and Europe on Milan Music/Universal, with an initial pressing of 20, 000 copies. Vol. 2 is eagerly anticipated. It has been one year in the making, and represents the cream of chilled electronica from around the globe (except Ibiza, thank you). No filler here. Every track is the best the artist can make, and the album is compiled to create a total trip through sound. Like the first comp., 'Sky Dancing 2' is a seductive collection of tribal beats, zen-dubs and ethereal grooves…
This 53-CD set is more than the sum of its parts. While not all the performances and recordings are top-notch, the overall quality is very high and as a historical overview of a label known for its sonic as well as musical merits, it's full of treasures. The Mercury sound at its best is vivid and still sounds remarkable and many of these recordings - such as the marches, show tunes and orchestral showpieces conducted by Frederic Fennell - demonstrate this amply. But it's not all lollipops by any means.
