|#||Artist||Song (click to play)||Album||Year||CD label|
|1||Gotic||Imprompt - 1||Escenes||1977||fonomusic|
Flute led melodies. |
Instrumental. Like Camel.
Pretty mellow stuff.
|2||Itziar||Manifestu atzeratua||Itziar||1979||Lost Vinyl|
|Folk-prog with beautiful female vocals. I do not know what to compare it to because I am not very learned in Folk-prog or Folk-rock. The rest of album is not quite as mellow as this song, but, it is pretty mellow comparatively.|
|3||Fusioon||Danza del Molinero||Fusioon||1974?||Divusca|
|This is from their other self/titled release. Fusioon is highly original and non-derivative. The performances are flawlessly executed. Definately my favorite group from Spain.|
|4||Galadriel||Under a Full-Colored Sky||Chasing the Dragonfly||1992||Musea|
|Galadriel have a light neo-prog sound. I found their first album to be very derivative, but, this album, their second, is much more original. Their songs have lots of dynamics and the music flows nicely.|
|5||Itoiz||Ezekielen Esnatzea I||Ezekiel||1980||Lost Vinyl|
|Folky prog with acoustic guitar, piano, and electric piano in abundance. Some flute,violin, and saxophone spice up the music here and there, but, they are not as prevalent as the flute is in Gotic, for example. They are from the Basque region of Spain and sing in that language. There is also some jazzy moments.|
|6||Los Canarios||Tercer Acto: Ciudad Futura||Ciclos||1974||Si-Wan|
|This was a double LP now on one CD. It is a very grand work based on Vivaldi's Four Seasons. I find the CD to be reminiscient of RDM's Contaminazione in many respects. I included only a part of the third song here, because each of the 4 pieces on the CD are 16+ minutes long.|
