Digitally remastered clamshell boxed set celebrating the finest musical sounds of so-called progressive rock music of 1973. Five hours of music featuring tracks by Kevin Ayers, Edgar Broughton Band, Budgie, Camel, Caravan, Curved Air, Electric Light Orchestra, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Family, Gong, Greenslade, Hawkwind, Help Yourself, Manfred Mann's Earthband, Nektar, PFM, Pink Fairies, Procol Harum, Nektar, Anthony Phillips, Rare Bird, Renaissance, Al Stewart, Traffic, Darryl Way's Wolf, Yes, and many more. The next release in the series of compilations celebrating so-called "Progressive" rock music concentrating on 1973, another year in which Progressive music in all it's forms would continue to be a dominating force with the album buying public. Much of this music appeared on the "progressive" imprints of major record labels such as EMI's Harvest, Decca's Deram and Philips Records' Vertigo and the emerging independent labels such as Charisma, United Artists and Island Records. 1973 saw a wealth of imaginative artists continue to meld seemingly disparate musical genres and influences such as jazz, blues, folk, rock and classical music on 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.
