I just got an e-mail today informing me about a new Progressive Compilation album that will be out on June 12 and features Rush. Sadly, the song chosen (Spirit of Radio) is the one that always turns up on UK compliations (I think its probably the only one that the general public know) but they do use Rush as the main picture on the press release.

Just in case you can't be bothered to take a look at the release, the complete track listing is:

CD1

Genesis- Carpet Crawlers
Jethro Tull ? Sweet Dream
Van Der Graaf Generator ? Killer
Focus ? Syliva
Curved Air ? Backstreet Luv
Steve Hackett ? Firth Of Fifth
Manfred Mann ? Solar Fire
Greenslade ? Bedtime Manners Are Extra
Procol Harum ? A Salty Dog
Rare Bird ? Sympathy
Renaissance ? Northern Lights
Family ? Burlesque
Colosseum ? Those About To Die
Marillion ? Forgotten Sons

CD2

Yes ? Yours Is No Disgrace
Emerson, Lake & Palmer ? Lucky Man
The Nice ? America
Barclay James Harvest ? Child Of The Universe
Rush ? The Spirit Of Radio
Blue Őyster Cult ? (Don?t Fear) The Reaper
Traffic ? Hole In My Shoe
Spirit ? Fresh Garbage
Argent ? Hold Your Head Up
Atomic Rooster ? Tomorrow Night
IQ ? Erosion
Twelfth Night ? Love Song
Caravan ? For Richard

while the comments by Geoff barton on Spirit of Radio are

Quote:

Rush ?The Spirit Of Radio?

Rush started out as a bunch of Led Zeppelin imitators, but once Neil Peart joined on drums (replacing John Rutsey) sword-and-sorcery tactics were the name of the game. (The game being orcs and goblins in a Games Workshop style.) ?The Spirit Of Radio?, from 1980?s ?Permanent Waves? album, dates from a time when the Canadian trio were trying to distance themselves from the fanciful flights of their early career. The song is a technical, intelligent, commercial take on prog ? and no complaints here.


A basic analysis, maybe, but he was one of the band's earliest champions in the UK music press so he can be excused a little.

Interesting. I love BOC, but I wouldn't think of them as Progressive. Like Rush, I suppose, they're hard to classify.

I never thought of BOC as Prog either. But, whatever.
