Yes, they were often under the radar during prog’s golden-era, but man, Stackridge can really play. And if you’re very new to their music, The Man in the Bowler Hat is the one to start off. If you want proof, just ask Rosalie Cunningham.

With Vital, you feel the intensity, the vibes, the heat, and the power that was struck on that recording. Most of the mind-blowing live takes are like shivers down your spine.

With Jacob Holm-Lupo’s remastering sound on Ignis Fatuus, he brings in these vibrant textures to make it sound crisp, up to date, and respectable to the original.

It’s time to give this album another chance, and understand why it was so far ahead of its time.

Echoes of the Past: Brian Davison’s Every Which Way – Brian Davison’s Every Which Way

Echoes of the Past: John McLaughlin, John Surman, Karl Berger, Stu Martin, and Dave Holland – Where Fortune Smiles

While the album was released in 1971, it remains one of the true unsung gems in the history of free-jazz.

Echoes of the Past: The Alan Parsons Project – The Turn of a Friendly Card: Limited Edition

The romantic, the beauty, the dark side of gambling, and the escapism that you crave, the concept still works wonderfully well as you put this album on from start to finish. Because it’ll never go away. It stays with you, for the rest of time.

Echoes of the Past: Charles Snider – The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock

Whether you agree with Snider or not, it’s his opinion that has honesty, and throughout his own personal choices that’ll make you want to dust off your old records from your personal library you hadn’t played for quite a while and put them on and slide a needle into the groove and use it as an alternate soundtrack to the Strawberry Bricks.

Echoes of the Past: Rush – Moving Pictures (40th Anniversary)

40 years later, and we’re still talking about it. I have no words to describe what made Rush’s Moving Pictures one of their magnum opuses, but the band’s gravitation, craftsmanship, and the fellowship that Alex, Geddy, and Neil had with each other.
