Round and Round - Progressive Sounds Of 1974 gathers together over five hours of music from 1974, another year in which would continue to see Progressive music in all it's forms continue to develop and retain it's presence as a dominating force with the album buying public. 1974 saw a wealth of imaginative artists continue to meld seemingly disparate musical genres and influences such as jazz, blues, folk, rock and classical music in a host of wonderful albums, all of which appealed to an audience of students and rock fans. Universities and Colleges remained regular venues on burgeoning live music circuit in the UK for these artists, most of whom earned loyal followings through regular concert performances both in Britain and in Europe. Progressive rock's influence internationally was also growing with notable European bands such as Kayak from the Netherlands and PFM from Italy making their presence felt, along with Todd Rundgren's Utopia from the USA. This compilation also features lesser-known acts who failed to make a wider known impression but produced excellent work of a wide breadth such as Keith Christmas, Gravy Train, Neutrons, Refugee, Quicksand, Stackridge, Steve Swindells, and Darryl Way's Wolf.
