The thing about unauthorized documentaries is that they lack access to music and real insider interviews.

Review by Gary Hill

While Phil Manzanera might be best known in some circles for his time in Roxy Music, he's had quite an interesting solo career over the years.

John Wetton - Anthology Volume 1: Studio Recordings
Review by G. W. Hill

This anthology of songs from John Wetton is quite strong. It’s not all progressive rock, and for the most par even when it lands there, it’s more in the AOR end of the spectrum.

Fripp & Eno - Beyond Even (1992-2006)
Review by Artcle msjtemp
This is a collection of previously unreleased collaborations between Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. As one might imagine the majority of this music is firmly rooted in atmospheric territory.

Concrete Blonde - Bloodletting
Review by Gary Hill
This album is a very nice work, featuring many musical themes and textures. Although not all of the album`s lyrics fit the Halloween mode, the title track is firmly rooted there, and much of the music has tones that work well.

UK - Danger Money
Review by Bruce Stringer
This being the only studio album from the scaled down, three-piece lineup of Eddie Jobson, John Wetton and Zappa alumni Terry Bozzio, there is so much to live up to and the obvious question is: does it?

Fripp & Eno - Evening Star
Review by Gary Hill

Anyone looking for the powerhouse music that you tend to expect from King Crimson here will be disappointed. This is an atmospheric work, but there is still plenty of Fripp to be found within.

Chris Spedding - Joyland
Review by G. W. Hill

This album has a lot of guest performers. It has about as many different styles and moods, too.

What a superstar lineup this one is. Phil Manzanera on guitar. Brian Eno on keyboards.

UK - Live In Boston
Review by Bruce Stringer
As one of the hardest working live acts in its day, it comes as no surprise that there were a number of radio show broadcasts made during UK’s short-lived existence. Besides featuring a stellar line-up of some of the best progressive rock musicians of the day (including ex-King Crimson and Yes members), the dominance of multitasking musical prodigy Eddie Jobson advanced the group into creative areas that pushed the envelope years ahead of its late ‘70s contemporaries.

Concrete Blonde - Live In Brazil
Review by Gary Hill
With Live In Brazil Concrete Blonde have given us a solid album showcasing their live performance. Those whose only introduction to the band are the singles might find this to be a bit raw, but truly that edge really adds something.

Concrete Blonde - Live in Chicago, May 10th, 2003
Review by Gary Hill
Never having seen Concrete Blonde live, I wasn't sure what to expect really. I had only heard three of their discs, the brilliant Bloodletting, Mexican Moon and Live in Brazil.

Bryan Ferry - Live In Lyon DVD
Review by G. W. Hill

Say what you will about Bryan Ferry, but the man has always been a very artistic individual and a great performer.

UK - Night After Night
Review by Gary Hill
The third, and final album by what was probably the first prog rock super-group (OK, other than ELP), this is a live album. Although Bill Bruford had left the band after the first album, his presence is still felt in the composition of a few of these tracks, but Terry Bozzio brings in his own style as the replacement.

Fripp & Eno - No Pussyfooting
Review by Gary Hill

This is difficult CD to write about. It’s certainly hard to delve deeply into these tracks and describe them. .

Wetton Manzanera - One World
Review by Gary Hill
In the late 1980’s two prog rock greats in the personage of John Wetton and Phil Manzanera recorded this disc. Let’s make one point clear here. This is included in the prog section based on who these guys are (and what the rest of their catalog is like).

Jack Bruce - Silver Rails
Review by G. W. Hill

When you are Jack Bruce, it’s a safe bet you can get your pick of musicians who want to play with you. After all, when you were one third of one of the most influential bands of the 1960s (Cream), you have some clout. Bruce has used that clout to his advantage recruiting some impressive musicians to guest here. The end result is an album that’s exceptional. It might even make my best of 2014 list. There are moments here that call to mind Cream, but there are other sections that feels different than that. It’s all quite good, though.

As to those guests. Here’s a partial list of the musicians playing on the disc: Phil Manzanera, Uli Jon Roth, Robin Trower and Cindy Blackman Santana. There are quite a few others, too. The lineup is just one attraction, though. Really the music is the main driving force here, and it’s great.

UK - UK
Review by Scott Prinzing

Considered by many to be one of the greatest prog albums of all time, it is a shame that the line-up lasted only one album and tour.
