Beste progliefhebber,

Onlangs verscheen ter ere van 25 jaar iO Pages het boek Prog2020 en andere kroonjaren. Vele abonnees hebben een exemplaar besteld, dank! 

iO Pages is een stichting zonder winstoogmerk die werkt met vrijwilligers, de abonnementsprijs van de tijdschriften is daarom niet hoog. Ook voor dit exclusieve en prachtige boek werken we met dat zelfde principe, een stunt met flinke korting om ook de laatste boeken te verkopen zit er niet in.

Daarom hebben we wat anders bedacht: als je (nog) een boek bestelt, bijvoorbeeld voor een (prog)vriend/vriendin, neef/nicht, broer/zus, zwager/schoonzus, collega die nog niet bekend is/zijn met iO Pages dan doen wij er niet 1 maar, doe maar gek, 2 exemplaren van iO Pages bij zodat ze (of jij) ook nog eens gratis kennis kunnen maken met ons blad.

Hoe maak je gebruik van deze actie?

Maak € 20 (€ 15 voor het boek en 2 exemplaren iO Pages en € 5 voor verzendkosten) (voor België moeten we iets meer vragen i.v.m. hogere verzendkosten: € 24) over op:

NL13ABNA 0411 0125 09 t.n.v. Stichting iO o.v.v. VADERDAG.

Wil je dat wij het pakket opsturen naar de gelukkige geef dan de naam en adresgegevens van die persoon door bij de betalingsgegevens.

Nieuwe mix PF Animals

A note from Roger Waters to Pink Floyd fans:

As I am banned by Dave Gilmour from posting on Pink Floyd's Facebook page with its 30,000,000 subscribers, I am posting this announcement here today and in full on

First, a warm welcome back to our little band of brothers and sisters who have always kept an open mind, let's hope some of the fans whose access to my words is suppressed by Gilmour find their way here and discover some truth.
What precipitated this note is that there are new James Guthrie Stereo and 5.1 mixes of the Pink Floyd album Animals, 1977. These mixes have languished unreleased because of a dispute over some sleeve notes that Mark Blake has written for this new release. Gilmour has vetoed the release of the album unless these liner notes are removed. He does not dispute the veracity of the history described in Mark's notes, but he wants that history to remain secret. This is a small part of an ongoing campaign by the Gilmour/Samson camp to claim more credit for Dave on the work he did in Pink Floyd, 1967-1985, than is his due. Yes he was, and is, a jolly good guitarist and singer. But, he has for the last 35 years told a lot of whopping porky pies about who did what in Pink Floyd when I was still in charge. There's a lot of "we did this" and "we did that," and "I did this" and "I did that." 

De Mark Blake liner notes zijn hier te lezen.

Nieuw album Neal Morse Band

Nieuw album Neal Morse Band

NMB are pleased to announce the release of their much-anticipated fourth studio album Innocence & Danger on August 27th, 2021.
With NMB's previous two releases being concept albums, it's perhaps remarkable that Innocence & Danger is a series of unrelated songs, but drummer Mike Portnoy says "After two sprawling back to back double concept albums in a row, it was refreshing to get back to writing a collection of unrelated individual songs in the vein of our first album."
Indeed, making this album came easy to the band; while the initial inspiration came particularly from Bill Hubauer (keyboards) and Randy George (bass), the ideas flowed from everybody from there on, as George recalls: "I am excited about the level of collaboration that we achieved on this one. We even went in with a lot of ideas that weren't necessarily developed, and I think in the end we have something that represents the best of everybody in the band."
In fact - like its two acclaimed predecessors - Innocence & Danger is a double album by inspiration, rather than design, as Portnoy explains: "As much as we wanted to try and keep it to a single album after having just done two double albums, we wrote so much material that we found ourselves with our third double album in a row! That's pretty prog!"
There is also plenty: "There's one half hour epic and another that's about 20 minutes long. I really didn't realise that they were that long when we were recording them, which I guess is great because if a movie is really good, you don't realise that it's three hours long! But there are also some shorter songs: some have poppier elements, some are heavier and some have three part acoustic sections. I'm excited about all of it, really."
The album will be released as a Limited 2CD+DVD Digipak (featuring a Making Of documentary), 3LP+2CD Boxset, Standard 2CD Jewelcase & Digital Album, featuring artwork by Thomas Ewerhard (Transatlantic). Pre-orders start on the 18th June, and the full track-listing is below:

CD 1 (Innocence):
1. Do It All Again 08:55
2. Bird On A Wire 07:22
3. Your Place In The Sun 04:12
4. Another Story To Tell 04:50
5. The Way It Had To Be 07:14
6. Emergence 03:12
7. Not Afraid Pt. 1 04:53
8. Bridge Over Troubled Water 08:08
CD 2 (Danger):
1. Not Afraid Pt. 2 19:32
2. Beyond The Years 31:22

The Neal Morse Band (now NMB) was formed in 2012, featuring long-time collaborators Neal Morse (vocals, keyboards and guitars), Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals) and Randy George (bass), as well as Bill Hubauer (keyboards, vocals) and Eric Gillette (guitars, vocals). The band's first album, The Grand Experiment, showed both a freshness and maturity that was further developed in 2016's The Similitude Of A Dream, 2019's The Great Adventure and 2021's Innocence & Danger.
Look for NMB on tour in North America in October 2021 and in Europe throughout May/June 2022. Tour dates coming soon!
