The Progzilla Files Episode 27 | Love and Theft – All Creatures Great, Small and Imaginary

Mark Foss examines at the classical influence on prog rock, playing pieces of classical music adapted by Jethro Tull, ELP, Yes, Genesis, King Crimson and Stick Men.

In the second hour, something completely different — proggy songs related to animals. From horses and whales to cats, mice and metaphorical and mythical creatures. And within this, a mixture of sentiments — from concern about their welfare… to admiration for their cunning, guile and ability to survive.
