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.

Label: Challenge Records | Release Year: 2008

Willem van Otterloo was by no means a dictatorial conductor, nor was he a glamour-seeker or showman. The music itself had the highest priority. His thorough knowledge of each and every score was legendary, and he conducted nearly all the larger works from memory. But above all he was a true orchestral trainer. From this legendary conductor we now have an unique document in our hands. It consists of 38 works (from a total of 125) which where recorded for Philips in the years 1950-60 with the Residency Orchestra The Hague. Also there are two DGG recordings of Haydn symphonies from 1962. The 13 cd’s are all digitally remasterd. This box is a real event: here musical history is written ánd immortalized.

Once, computer game music was a cute joke. In 1984, it became art. The Commodore 64 home computer was the first to contain a full analog synthesizer. A new generation of composers started their musical careers, and computer music was changed forever. "Back In Time" is dedicated to Commodore heroes past and present: Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway, Ben Daglish, Fred Gray, Tim Follin, Jeroen Tel, David Whittaker, Jonathan Dunn, Charles Deenen, Chris Huelsberg, Bogg, Ratt, Jackal… they made C64 more than a computer: they made it an experience. These CDs are for those who support the rebirth of a computer that surpassed the relatively lowly level of its technology: the rebirth of a computer that never died.

As samplers go, this is one of the best. An excellent cross section of artists from the Stockfish catalog. I am especially taken by the cuts from Alan Taylor ("The Beat Hotel" in particualr) and Chris Jones. Sonics are clean, clear and crisp, with an exceptional sense of timbre. I've purchased a few of the CD's of the artists I've heard on this sampler, and I'm here to tell you, they sound great to - though they can't beat these SACD tracks.

Here was displayed for the first time the many variants of IDM, showing that there was much more to Ambient than just atmospheric instrumental tracks: from the deep moody electronica of David Morley or Biosphere, to the dub-influenced collages of the Orb's remix of Electrotete, and the Detroit techno of Model 500 at its most subtle, every track here is a gem, making it an unrivalled release.
