'Out to Lunch' stands as Eric Dolphy's magnum opus, an absolute pinnacle of avant-garde jazz in any form or era.
Grievous Angel was the second solo album by Gram Parsons, compiled from 1973 sessions and released four months after his death. Like all of Parsons' records, it failed to rate high on the charts, never reaching the top hundred on the Billboard charts. Nonetheless, it is viewed as a successful example of the hybrid between country and rock and roll Parsons called "Cosmic American Music."

Essential: A masterpiece of progressive rock music
I find it amazing how many groups there were on the cusp of something as big as the development of an entire genre of music. Progressive rock was just starting to kick it into high gear in 1971 and bands like Spring were working on important recordings like this self- titled set.
At first, I was not sure what the picture of the dead soldier meant but after listening to the albums lyrics, it makes more sense. The album certainly has a theme. “The Prisoner,” “Fool’s Gold,” “Shipwrecked Soldier,” “Golden Fleece,” and “Grail” certainly have an explorer war like premise.
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
SHADOWFAX. Nice name for a progressive rock band. At least that's how they started off. Named after Gandalf's a horse in Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings. They are often classified as new age, but their first album really wasn't, it was rather quite like a more rocking version of OREGON and had a mixture of hard and soft songs. And really their latter albums weren't completely although they lost some of their harder edge and devoted themselves to more mellow fair.
