Welcome to

The Progressive Rock Bibliography Site

This site currently features bibliographical data to 705 Progressive Rock/Art Rock publications (books and articles). It is intended to provide information for the fan who wants to get a deeper understanding of the music (s)he likes, but also as a source for academic research.

I have also tried to provide some comments on those publications I know. If you want to see the bibliography without my comments (the "printer friendly version"), click here!

Is this your first visit? Then read on here. Next is the new stuff, followed by an explanation of what you will and what you won't find here. I also suggest you read the young persons' guide to Progressive Rock books!

What can be found here?

This site features bibliographical data on Progressive Rock. I do not want to get into the discussion of what Prog is, or what distinguishes it from other styles of popular (and classical?) musics. Just a few remarks on what is and will be included here should be enough.
Featured on this site are books that cover Progressive/Art Rock in general, or artists and bands who record(ed) music regarded as Progressive/Art Rock. I also decided to add articles by musicologists, but fanzine features and articles remain excluded.

Books I don't have full bibliographical data of are marked with a . Concerning those books, the information provided here has been checked, but it is incomplete: an ISBN, a year etc. might be missing. So your help is always welcome! Just send an email to bibmaster{at}progbibliography.de

Regarded as Progressive/Art Rock by whom?

Well, by me. This is a natural consequence of the beforementioned fact that it is pretty much unclear, what Prog is (just like any other cultural manifestation). There is of course no dividing line between Prog and non-Prog - and that's fine! But then, one may argue that Gentle Giant may be a little "more Prog" than Genesis and maybe even more than Pink Floyd (please do not contact me about that particular topic, I am sure you have a completely different opinion!). So to give you an impression, or an example of what you can find here: The Gentle Giant book is included here, also the books on Genesis (there have been quite a few...), but you will not find any stuff on Pink Floyd. Although it is without doubt, that this band was very progressive, it was not really Progressive, you know what I mean? Nevertheless, I'm sure you will find some great Pink Floyd bibliographies on the 'net!
I list a few titles covering styles connected to Prog, like Krautrock, Psychedelic etc. These are mentioned, when the descriptions of these books I found on the internet gave me the impression, that Yes is at least mentioned... So do not expect a full bibliography of those styles!

I will not be able to give full descriptions of all the books and articles mentioned here, for I do not know them all. But I will add some from time to time, to give you an impression of what they contain. Don't worry, I try to avoid the amazon style: "I liked this book, go an' get it".
You are not interested in my comments? Just delete them!

You can go directly to the following sections:

I. Books and articles already published
II. Books that have not been published yet
III. Books in the making

Where can you get these books?

Please note: I don't sell anything! But you may easily find some, or even many of the books mentioned here. I suggest you try the big online bookstores first:
amazon.com (US)
amazon.co.uk (UK)
amazon.de (Germany)
amazon.fr (France)
or for the more rare titles, try national bookstores like
internetbook.it (Italy)

That's where I found most of the books in my own collection. You can also follow the links displayed within the entries, or check the links page, some will lead you to authors' or publishers' websites, where you might also be able to get a book.
The availability of many books may vary, so be patient and check those sites regularly. If you are looking for out-of-print or used books, you can try the following websites:
amazon.com (US)
amazon.co.uk (UK)
amazon.de (Germany)
amazon.fr (France)
searchbox.org<br> italiamia.com

Moreover, quite a lot of the scientific texts (alongside other more easily accessible stuff) have been published on the 'net, I have put links to those on the website. If you happen to find any broken links, please tell me, I don't have the time to regularly check everything. Just send an email to bibmaster{at}progbibliography.de
Another try would be ebay, you may be lucky there.
If you are familiar with library proceedings, you might want to try to get the book by interlending. If you want to check the big libraries worldwide first, I suggest you try search machines like the KVK, a source for worldwide bibliographical data.

My sources:

Most helpful in the process of compiling this bibliography were YOU! Thanks to all the contributors! And keep writing in! Also very helpful were the internet sources collected in section 3 of my links page.

Help needed!

If you can contribute to this site in any way, like - you know an ISBN, a year, you know the author's name, you'd like a certain book to be added, you are welcome. Those books I don't have complete data of are marked with a "". I have specified my whishes here and there, but in most cases they should be obvious.
I especially need information about books on national scenes. It's hard to look for a Prog publication from Israel, if you don't speak Hebrew. Not to mention Japanese...
So if you can help in any way, write to bibmaster{at}progbibliography.de The information will be checked and subsequently published here.


Here I will collect WARNINGS concerning certain internet stores who are likely to betray you. This is based on my own experience as well as experiences of other visitors of my website.

First in line is iUniverse. I had to return a book which they had sent ignoring the cancellation of my order. I never had my money returned!

So what can I say - I hope you will find what you are looking for!

              When Allen decided spontaneously to travel to Romania in July 1990,
              all he knew about the country was from media coverage of the December '89
              revolution - which fascinated him - and that there were many, many orphans
              needing help. He arrived in Bucarest with knowing no-one and with nowhere to stay,
              but found a warm, generous and stimulating people, eager to communicate
              on all levels - despite the invisible hand of fear and social repression
              still hovering over their shoulder. Allen's view of life in Romania has
              the unique and personal quality of a poet, political observer, traveller,
              humanist and friend. 40 page book. Can be ordered at Planetgong.)

              by Allen. A densely packed book full of detail, an unmissable aid to the fuller
              and deeper understanding of Gong's Shapeshifter album. The story of
              Zero the Hero continues, forbidden the use of money, he enters a limbo-like
              state linked to constant travelling around the world by plane, leaving it briefly at
              various destinations for further strange initiatory adventures.
              As the Shapeshifter album is Radio Gnome Invisible Pt. 4, this book is a vital and
              highly entertaining key to understanding the link between 'You' and the recent

              (This is one of those "fan-books", unintellectual and sometimes even anti-intellectual. It will tell you,
              that Yes is a great band, but won't tell you why. Chambers even tells us, that "these questions are best left
              unanswered"! That's why I call the book anti-intellectual. Do we have to be grateful to be able to at least ask
              these questions?
              The book tells us the view of another fan who's top five are: "In the Presence of", "Give Love each day",
              "Homeworld", "New Language" and "Lightning Strikes". This should make you careful. On the other hand, it is
              the only Yes history that focuses on the eighties and nineties. This should make the book worth having.
              But what's the point in this approach if you can't say why these decades are so much more interesting than
              the seventies?
              Chambers, who gives a description of every single Yessong (but leaves out "Money", "Give and Take" and some
              others for no known reason) even misses the chance to give insight where possible: recent interviews have
              made it possible to understand the embarrassing process of the recording of "Union" a bit better, but
              Chamber ignores them in order to be as vague as possible in not answering questions that are better
              left unanswered.

              The first part does not provide much new information, despite a very interesting chapter on the
              disasterous "Works"-tour, part 2 is even weaker, for it doesn't have anything you wouldn't hear by yourself.

              (A book on Asia, most interesting for Prog fans for it descibes a comparatively less known phase
              in the life of three important Prog musicians, Steve Howe, John Wetton and Carl Palmer.
              The book gives detailed insight in the band's career, even when it didn't exist.
              Concerning the eighties, the book unfortunately focuses mainly on Wetton.
              As there already is a Wetton biography and a book on ELP, more information about Howe and Downes
              (who has been the band's leader ever since the early nineties) would have been welcome.
              But this is only a minor flaw, the book is absolutely worth reading,
              for it describes the career of a couple of great Prog musician during a time when Prog seemed to be over.

              (A book on The Nice. This book has several faults. First and most severe fault:
              Keith Emerson wasn't available for interviews. The reason is that he wanted to save
              his best stories for his own book, but certainly this one lacks his input. Secondly,
              the book is not very well proofread. Then there are certain things lacking, for example:
              All bandmembers are introduced in little biographies with the strange exception of
              Pat Arnold, without whom The Nice would never have existed. Then we read about the band members'
              reactions to Emerson's dismission of the band - with the exception of Lee Jackson.
              On the other hand, it has strong appendices: discographies, gig lists and the beformentioned
              biographies. In the end: not the book I expected, but the only one about an important band. More info here.)

  377. Mosbø, Thomas J.: Yes - but what does it mean? Exploring the music of Yes. Milton WI 1994. (Doesn't have an ISBN).
              (A rare book of interpretations of Yessongs. Not a band history. The interpretations are rather esoterical
              and subjective, so may not be approved of or understood by everybody, but then, they could be closer to
              what Jon really meant than Bill Martin's thoughts.
              Sometimes you get the impression, that Mosbø tries to find the sonata form in too many Yessongs, also in those
              that don't really have one (like "Changes").
              Very useful are his detailed descriptions of all Yes albums, solo albums and videos available
              and his notes on song structures of Yessongs and solo works.)

              along with the reader to believe in the process of Life. Whether in mystic times, present
              or distant futures, Love, as life expressed in its highest form, is everything while
              experiencing the human condition. We have to forgive and share, accept and embrace, love
              and be loved if we want to make a better future for ourselves. Since the mystery of life
              was something that fascinated me, a lot of the verses refer to this search and hope to
              offer a glimpse of some universal truths. I believe we are at the point of reaching a
              better understanding of ourselves and our reality slowly moving into other dimensions.
              I invite you to go on the journey that I went when writing these poems, knowing that
              if they will capture your attention just for a moment I have accomplished my purpose
              of making them available to you.")

              It documents the complete history of the band within the context of their time and looks aside
              to contemporary bands. It critically explores the relationship between the band
              and the members' solo careers. Drawing on new exclusive interviews with band members past and present,
              as well as the musicians' friends and associates, author Dave Thompson chronicles Genesis' evolution from their
              progressive-rock era to being mainstream rock stars, and the continuing careers of its most famous alumni.)

              (This book draws on the author's personal experience as a musician,
              producer and teacher of popular music to discuss the ways in which audio technology and
              musical creativity in pop music are inextricably bound together. This relationship, the
              book argues, is exemplified by the work of Trevor Horn, who is widely acknowledged as the
              most important, innovative and successful British pop record producer of the early 1980s.
              In the first part of the book, Timothy Warner presents a definition of pop as distinct from
              rock music, and goes on to consider the ways technological developments, such as the transition
              from analogue to digital, transform working practices and, as a result, impact on the creative
              process of producing pop. Part two analyses seven influential recordings produced by Trevor
              Horn between 1979 and 1985: 'Video Killed the Radio Star' (The Buggles), 'Buffalo Gals'
              (Malcolm McClaren),'Owner of a Lonely Heart' (Yes), 'Relax' (Frankie Goes to Hollywood),
              'Slave to the Rhythm' (Grace Jones), and albums by The Art of Noise and Propaganda.
              These records reveal how the creative use of technology in the modern pop recording studio
              has informed Horn's work, a theme that is then explored in an extensive interview with Horn
              himself. Complete with a Trevor Horn discography and Bibliography.)
