    I'm a bit of a prog fan but not a die-hard so I don't know much beyond King Crimson, ELP, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd and Rush. I'm looking to expand my horizons so I'm seeking suggestions for great songs beyond these artists.

    Your suggestions are appreciated!

    Robert Wyatt's Ruth is Stranger Than Richard and Rock Bottom
    Peter Hammill solo and Van der Graaf Generator
    Can
    Magma
    PFM
    Chronicle

    to name a few perhaps less familiar to a casual prog fan.

    Happy exploring!

    Electric Light Orchestra! Is it prog enough? It has a standup electric bass ... How about Mr. Blue Sky!

    Oh man, you gotta check out Karmakanic’s Wheel of Life album. Absolutely stunning.

    This one. Holdsworth's solo is ridiculously good.
