A New 4 CD Remastered Clamshell Various Artists Boxed Set Celebrating The Finest Sounds Of The So-Called "Underground" And Progressive Rock Music Of 1972. Five Hours Of Music Featuring Tracks By Atomic Rooster, Barclay James Harvest, Edgar Broughton Band, Caravan, Curved Air, Emerson Lake And Palmer, Family, Free, Gentle Giant, Hawkwind, Help Yourself, Khan, Lindisfarne, Man, Matching Mole, Nektar, Pretty Things, Procol Harum, Nektar, Rare Bird, Al Stewart, Ten Years After, Thin Lizzy, Uriah Heep, Van Der Graaf Generator, Vinegar Joe, Wishbone Ash, Yes And Many More. The next release in their series of compilations celebrating the so-called "underground" rock music - 'Blowing Free - Underground And Progressive Sounds Of 1972', is a 4CD clamshell box set which gathers together over five hours of music from 1972, a momentous year in rock music and one which would continue to see Progressive music in all it's forms become a dominating force with the album buying public. Much of this music appeared on the "progressive" imprints of major record labels such as EMI's Harvest, Decca's Deram and Philips Records' Vertigo and the emerging independent labels such as Charisma, United Artists and Island Records and led to an increasied presence of underground album music on BBC Radio One with it's Sounds Of The Seventies and Top Gear programmes. On television the iconic series The Old Grey Whistle Test would be a major contributor to the success of many of these musicians.
