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…

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…

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.

None of Rod Stewart's many self re-inventions has been half-hearted, least of all the full-fledged adoption of the full-on electric rock of 1975's ATLANTIC CROSSING. This album saw Stewart moving past the folk and blues of some of his past work, trading it in for some brash saxophones and jumpy R&B-tinged rhythms. AC features a host of well-known Yank studio cats, including guitarist Steve Cropper (whose contribution was also compositional), producer Tom Dowd, and the Memphis Horns, who all lend an able hand in helping Stewart leave his UK roots behind…

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.

Argentinian composer, instrumentalist and producer Litto Nebbia (real name Félix Francisco Nebbia) is a veteran of the Argentinian rock scene. A highly influential one at that, and a pioneer. In the first half of the 1960's he sought his fortunes in rock music, and as a forming member of Los Gatos he got his share of fame and fortune early. A part of his career that inspired many contemporary musicians too, with artists such as Charly García and Luis Alberto Spinetta acknowledging the importance of Nebbia and Los Gatos as inspirations for their own careers…

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.

Archimedes Badkar (Archimedes Bathtub) was a Swedish group formed by percussionist/pianist/composer Per Tjernberg that existed between 1972 -1980, recording four LPs that has since achieved cult status in several camps. Their debut album, "Badrock For Barn I Alla Aldrar" shows an already mature band that tries to integrate ethnic music, jazz, rock and folk. Their style is fairly unique, but imagining a mix of Embryo and Arbete & Fritid would give one a good reference point.

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.
