Info: 1997 Paperback by Paul Stump. Progressive rock music was flourishing in 1970, in 1980 it was reviled and in 1990 it was all but forgotten… now it is once again vibrant. A whole swathe of new bands is taking the genre forward and classic records are revered, the artists who created them once more respected and imitated, their ideas and ambition recognised.
Paul Stump traces the background from which this music grew and the factors that led to its eclipse. Progressive’s near death and re-birth are described with vigour and wit, and an awareness of the cultural changes happening alongside. Always informative, entertaining and opinionated THE MUSIC’S ALL THAT MATTERS is a guide, a history and a celebration.
