The Gribshnobler digs up a recording from the forgotten age of 2015, a time when Rand Kelly and The Gribshnobler began to share their top 11 personal favorite progressive rock epics.  After chatting a bit about  King Crimson (including the album Live at the Orpheum), free jazz pioneer Sun Ra, Rush, and others, we cover nos. 11 through 8 of each of our lists.  Along the way we also play music by Tangerine Dream, King Crimson, Sun Ra, Jethro Tull, Dream Theater, Nektar, and Transatlantic.  Other bands discussed include The Flower Kings, Henry Cow, Slapp Happy, Art Bears, Happy the Man, and Neal Morse.

You can hear all of our Top 11 pieces and many other songs and albums mentioned on The GribCast Related Videos Youtube Playlist:
