Between 1967 and 1975, progressive', album-oriented music outsold many other genres on a global level, making some of the musicians involved major stars in the process. Many of the acts that evolved during that golden era are still performing and their influence is still widely recognised by musicians of all generations. Prophets and Sages offers a well informed perspective on 100 great albums of this period, without discriminating between legendary and lesser-known works, making it a must-have book for fans of this ever-popular genre.'
