    The Nice - same lp (third release) was released '69 I don't see it as having overt moves in the prog direction. This is protoprog with jazz leanings (say, on the two covers - Dylan & Hardin) and isn't "Rondo '69" a takeoff from Brubeck???

    Much closer to prog, I would certainly have picked "5 Bridges" apparently released June 1970

    I would say contenders would be

    Emerson Lake and Palmer - 1st Album 1970 would be right up there

    Soft Machines first 2 albums have to their as well 68 and 69

    The Moody Blues - On the Threshold of a Dream 1969, some might argue Psychedelic Rock, but it was considered Prog Rock in its day and it has a strange mix of styles, and crosses over with classical influences


    Personally I'd pick ELP
    +1 for ELP first album. Then you go and include that Moody Blues album, which I hadn't heard in decades until 'Dear Diary' was played on this week's 'Killing Eve'. Brilliant stuff, and a priority next album purchase

    This beggars the question: "How can one call something coming immediately AFTER the benchmark "Court of Crimson King", PROTOprog?"

    This really annoys me protoprog is a modern classification that did not exist at the actual time the music was created. The music was termed prog rock or progressive pop, imo the term is meaningless. There is a lot of crap written about this by so called academics, who are trying to classify certain styles which were not even considered or thought of at the time.

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes

    Exactly! Which is why I'm not going to contribute to this thread. Who's to say King Crimson's 'In the Court of the Crimson King' was the first 'prog rock' album (well apart from Wikipedia that is )? And does it really matter?

    They may have not thought of it at the time but there definitely was that slim period where psych morphed into prog. There is no denying it.
    Of course there was no template that the the bands dutily followed to get to full-blown prog.

    Protoprog encapsulates some 50 - 100 bands that had "that" sound.


    You cannot know prog without knowing proto. (Otherwise you're that kind of Porkupine Tree-Wilson-Mars Volta noob that mouths off his ignorance on all fora.)

    I wager the term is meaningless to you since your palette is limited to a few basic colours.
