Emerson, Lake, and Palmer were HUGE arena fillers and sales monsters ( UK #2 sales, Top 10 US ) and quite innovative progressive rockers when "Brain Salad Surgery" came out in late 1973. And you must hear Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, and Carl Palmer tell the story of visiting Swiss cover artist the late H.R.Giger!

Who- Quadrophenia 50th- Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, the late John Entwistle pt2

(cont)... As The Who's recognized Quadrophenia auteur , Townshend has assessed their almost half-century of musical creation and found it to be good . Pete is a delightful , witty , thoughtful , and refreshingly honest conversationalist who can easily and effectively examine The Who's epic 1973 opus through a slightly-detached , objective eye which only the passage of time , and maturity , can provide . -Redbeard

Jimi Hendrix Experience- Electric Ladyland pt2- Mitch Mitchell, author John McDermott

Jimi Hendrix and his British trio the Experience created a landmark double album in 1968 called "Electric Ladyland",  but this deep into the 21st century it may be difficult for many to fully understand the context in which it was made and the world into which it was subsequently released. Experience drummer the late Mitch Mitchell & Hendrix biographer/film director John McDermott tell the story from the inside.

Genesis-“Mama” Album- Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford,Tony Banks

Between 1980 and 1986, the British trio Genesis released a series of four consecutive hit albums, each more successful than its predecessor by as many as five times. Because drummer/singer/songwriter Phil Collins had a parallel solo career take off during that time, reading the critical reviews from many respected music writers in this period imply that Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford and keyboardist Tony Banks unwittingly, if not unwillingly, were somehow led by Collins in a more mainstream pop direction. However, the simple facts just don't bear out that assumption.

Heart- Dog and Butterfly- Ann & Nancy Wilson

From the forty-fifth anniversary perspective on Heart's million-seller "Dog and Butterfly" released in September 1978, guitarist/singer/songwriter Nancy Wilson is gratified with how the songs "Straight On","Mistral Wind", and "Dog and Butterfly" have fared over the decades.
