Reviews for the Third Edition

Reviews for the third edition of The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive rock (will be updated).

"500 excellent essays that merge album reviews with band histories, and then mash that into an over-arching chronological framework to not only trace the genre’s “rise” and “fall,” but also the vast parameters that it was capable of embracing." - Dave Thompson, Goldmine Magazine

Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
In 1979, manager Brian Lane resuscitated the brand name of Yes by injecting two musicians from a slightly different ilk to the core group of Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White. As The Buggles, Geoff Downes and Trevor Horn had just scored a No. 1 single in the UK and elsewhere with "Video Killed the Radio Star" b/w "Kid Dynamo;" but as a studio-only project, they found themselves ensconced in the same studio space as Yes, languishing over a follow-up.
