The Professor will be taking two weeks in Spain at the end of June. So, it seemed appropriate to open the show with Gentle Giant’s sprightly song Two Weeks In Spain, but also to have a whole show dedicated to Spanish progressive rock and to music inspired by Spanish music and culture. I think you will find a surprising variety of styles and sounds. Also, this gives me a great opportunity to practice my mangling the Spanish language. There are some great pieces in the Symphonic Zone. Plus, we have news of tours and releases.

The Sound Chaser Progressive Rock Podcast walks on the stream once more. This program will be a bit more heavily concentrated on music of the past than most previous Sound Chaser podcasts have been. That seems appropriate given that many of the famous prog pioneering bands are entering or surpassing their 50th anniversaries, that many of the musicians from this past are passing on, and that today’s prog owes large debt to those past bands. On this show we have some classics, some obscurities, and even a couple of fairly recent items. Plus, there's news of tours and releases.

Sound Chaser returns with the second of the YouTube covers shows. This episode is the second in the two-part series dedicated to YouTube posted covers of progressive rock classics. Many of these are highly faithful to the original recordings. Many others are clever rearrangements. When I was searching for covers of prog tunes, much of what I found was, of course, covers of what Edward Macan called The Big Six in his book on progressive rock, Rocking the Classics. These are Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, and ELP. We will one cover version of a tune by each of those acts. However, I was surprised by the range of other acts that received the YouTube cover treatment. In the last show, we heard covers of tunes from seemingly unlikely sources, and that continues on this show too. Get ready for some new takes on old classics.

The Sound Chaser Progressive Rock Podcast is on the web. This week is the first of two special shows dedicated to covers of progressive music posted exclusively on YouTube, or on YouTube and other noncommercial venues. Originally made for people to post their own content, YouTube provides many opportunities for amateur and semi-professional musicians, and even a few professional ones, to perform, record, and post videos of music. Many of these videos are performances of music by famous artists. And, yes, many of the videos are very amateurish. Yet, there have been some very good versions of famous and even not so famous progressive rock tunes. This makes YouTube another outlet for progressive music, and one we should not ignore if we are to explore the entirety of what progressive rock is. All of the versions you hear on this show are not available on cds or commercial media other than YouTube, as far as I can tell through my researches, except for one tune that I missed in my first research. Of course, the music you hear is extracted from the videos. The playlist for this show will contain the links to the videos, so you can see the full production for yourselves. Enjoy, as we take an impressionistic walk down the path of nostalgia.
