here we have a terrific documentary i’ve been watching as a highly insightful, yet less tedious part of my studies. A great doco on british progressive music with interviews from a vast array of the main players (rick wakeman, carl palmer etc.) talking about their inspirations, their attachment to concept albums and vinyl LP’s and memorable moments from their careers – as well as sharing some helarious stories. I have indeed found documentaries like this very inspirational to watch as well – so i thought i’d share this in case anyone was interested in learning more about my area of research.
‘ambitious music demanded ambitious presentation. What began with sgt pepper, now became the glorious norm – albums adorned with lyrics, paintings, cutouts, popups and pullouts. The gatefold sleeve opened like a window on to brave new worlds..’
