Rod Stewart's sixth album was called Atlantic Crossing because the singer was literally crossing the Atlantic, making America his new home for reasons of the heart (he was fully enamored with actress Britt Ekland at the time) and the wallet (he was eager to escape Britain's restrictive tax rates). As it happens, 1975 was a perfect time for a new beginning for Stewart: the Faces were falling apart, his last LP, Smiler, wasn't roundly loved, and he had wrapped up his contract with Mercury and signed with Warner, so he completely rebooted, hiring legendary producer Tom Dowd to steer him through a slick, streamlined revamping of his signature sound…

Olli Ahvenlahti - Bandstand (1975). Sweet keys from 70s Finland - a great little set that's filled with jazzy work on electric piano and clavinet! Keyboardist Olli Ahvenlahti has a touch that's as warm and soulful as some of his counterparts on the American fusion scene - an approach that's not nearly as jamming or rock-influenced as some of the other European keyboardists of the 70s, and which is carried off here with a gliding, soaring approach to the groove! Olli's group on the set features trumpet and sax in the frontline – shading in the tunes with qualities similar to some of the most righteous work done on keyboard sets for Muse or Strata East in the 70s - funky one minute, cosmic the next, with tight head arrangements that state the colors of the tunes, then break into freer solos…

Hoelderlin (formed as Hölderlin) started out playing cover tunes in Germany in the 1960s until they received an offer for a record contract in the early 1970s. The band was led by two brothers, Christian and Joachim Grumbkow, who wrote most of the music. The debut-album "Hölderlin's Traum" was released in 1972 with a nine-piece line up, including female vocals and instruments like the Mellotron, Grand piano, violin, cello, sitar, tablas and flute. Their sound is a progressive blend of rock, jazz and folk. Troubles soon arose when the band's producer wanted to have the band change their sound. After a long three year legal battle, the band was able to get rid of their contract, slightly change their name and release their second album, "Hoelderlin" in 1975. The band called their music 'romantic rock', it sounded more jazzy and it contained echoes from King Crimson and Genesis…

Fermáta is a legendary prog/jazz-rock band from Slovakia. It was established in 1973 by lead guitarist, and the only stable member, František Griglák (previous member of Prúdy and Collegium Musicum), together with Tomáš Berka (keyboards), Peter Szapu (drums) and Anton Jaro (bass). Apparently their brand of instrumental prog/jazz-rock was at best approved, at worst tolerated by the Communist regime as they released all their albums on the state apparatchik label Opus. Indeed, their music has been compared to Spain's Iceberg or Holland's Finch and Mahavishnu Orchestra as well, at least for their first few albums.

A group of like-minded jazz musicians formed the original core of Piirpauke in 1974. Coming toward the end of the classic era of progressive music, the Finnish band established themselves almost immediately as a folk-inspired group with a free form, improvisational style and a tendency toward long, eclectic original arrangements. While the band would veer into more contemporary, pop and even classical compositions during the eighties and nineties, they would return to their jazz-folk roots in the new millennium. Despite an evolving membership the band has endured for nearly forty years, releasing more than eighteen studio albums as well as a wide range of live recordings and compilations.

Before forming Living Life, Johnny Betti was a drummer on the first line-up of psychedelic Italian band Circus 2000. After leaving the band, Betti spent a few years touring Europe with jazz musicians until his trip in Aghanistan for a year. In 1975 he formed Living Life in Turin and created his own record label Shirak which released his albums and on the debut he was joined by a former Circus 2000 guitarist Marcello Quartarone. The two albums by Living Life were released six years apart, ranging from jazz rock influenced by folk music to more symphonic influenced on the second release which involded four keyboard players. Living Life disbanded like many unnoticed bands on Betti's record label.

Eroc (Joachim Heinz Ehrig) started his solo career in 1975 while he was currently the drummer of Grobschnitt. His self titled album can be considered as a cross between Gorbschnitt's typical symphonic amazing music and electronic/ synthscapes dominated by numerous original sound manipulations. Despite that he was originally recognised as a drummer, here Eroc is the man behind the machines, controlling solid essays in synth experimentations and electronic collages. His first album is an absolute must in Kraut/electronic genre, very abstract, emotional and a mix of different moods. This album is an opponent worthy of Klaus Schulze's first realisations in space/"kosmische" electronic music…

Tramseböx (1975). Debut album from Swedish psych/prog band. 9 tracks of ambitious, spooky 1970s psychedelia with atmospheric and cosmic sounds. With Swedish lyrics and focus on guitars, that are often quite fuzzed out. Compared to their 2nd album, "Gudang Garam", this is more in the direction of hippie psych, at times reminiscent of both Älgarnas Trädgård as well as Träd, Gräs & Stenar. Even seen them being compared to Kennelmus and Bent Wwind. The sound have been cleaned up from the mastertape. First time on CD…

Companyia Elèctrica Dharma are one of the forefathers of Catalan Prog Folk. They were formed in Barcelona in 1974, by Fortuny brothers - Joan (soprano saxophone), Josep (drums) and Esteve (guitar), along with Carles Vidal on bass and Jordi Soley on keyboards. The band fused many aspects of Catalan folk music (emphasizing it on the saxophone)with jazz/rock/fuision, as well as other types of Mediterranean-based root music. They're music is festive, light-heartened and toe-tapping, but also complex and not banal at all. The band's line-up changed (or better, widened) several times, once evene with a tragedy: Esteve Fortuny died of cerebral haemorrhage in 1986, during their live performance…

Rod Stewart may have begun his career as a respected singer, yet that critical respect eroded as he got older, as he became more concerned with stardom and adult contemporary songcraft than the rock music that launched him. While he has recorded some terrible albums – and he would admit that freely – Stewart was once rock & roll's best interpretive singer as well as an accomplished songwriter, creating a raw combination of folk, rock, blues, and country that sounded like no other folk-rock or country-rock material. Instead of finding the folk in rock, he found how folk rocked like hell on its own. After Stewart became successful, he began to lose the rootsier elements of his music, yet he remained a superb singer, even as he abandoned his own artistic path in favor of following pop trends.
