Prog - A Beginning - Discovery Rd 6

1976 was a strange year for prog. On the one hand, critics had proclaimed prog was dead with disco and punk beginning their ascendency. But there were lots of interesting albums out that year, especially from new bands in countries other than simply England. These albums are case in point and are sure to please in their own unique way!
1Hercules and Lernaean Hydra
Σε Άλλους Κόσμους (In Other Worlds)

"It's an album that bursts with creativity and musicality. It's apparent it was created by people who loved music and paid attention to detail. It's never static in one place and genre, and this fluidity is further highlighted by the numerous different singers that guest here, and the more than 80 (!) different instruments used for the end result. It wouldn't be a 70's greek prog album without numerous references to Greek folk music and of course all the lyrics are in Greek as well." - Mythodea

2Hermann Szobel

"Child prodigy Hermann Szobel composed and produced one album at the age of 18 before he disappeared from the music world completely. The album has a Frank Zappa vibe, with emphasis on piano (Szobel's instrument), percussion, and vibraphone. It was obscure even when it was released in the 70s, but a 2012 reissue has given us a second chance to enjoy it." - TwigTW
