LATEST EPISODE

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. Playlist 1.
