Features interviews with Bill Bruford, Peter Giles, Gordon Haskell, Judy Dyble and more . . . In 1969 five young Englishmen calling themselves King Crimson altered the course of rock music, and despite a revolving-door lineup, the band has continued to innovate and inspire for more than fifty years. Fifty Shades of Crimson tells the story of this legendary band and of the unique English guitarist Robert Fripp it revolves around. With a deep passion for the music, author Pete Tomsett celebrates the achievements of Fripp and the array of incredible talent that has passed through Crimson, while not shying away from the many behind-the-scenes difficulties. Getting signed after supporting The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, Crimson shot to fame with their debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King, becoming one of the most influential bands of that era and triggering the rise of prog rock. While going through countless personnel, including Greg Lake, Bill Bruford and John Wetton, rejecting Elton John and Bryan Ferry along the way, they have put out many highly acclaimed albums and to this day maintain a big international following. In their early years Fripp's band reached the same commercial heights as the likes of David Bowie and Pink Floyd. However, as an intellectual who despised the practices of the music business, Fripp preferred innovation over chasing big sales. In 1974 he withdrew from mainstream music, becoming involved with the Fourth Way philosophy, but was eventually tempted back and reformed Crimson to much acclaim in the eighties. As well as also having collaborations with Brian Eno, Andy Summers and others, Fripp has created new forms of instrumental music, run his own idiosyncratic guitar courses and set up an ethical record company. Both genius and 'a special sort of awkward', Fripp has never been afraid to take his music where no one has gone before, and Crimson have been a powerful influence on everyone from Genesis and Yes to Roxy Music and Radiohead, creating a legacy that will live on for decades more!

Once the domain of a privileged few, the art of record production is today within the reach of all. The rise of the ubiquitous DIY project studio and internet streaming have made it so. And while the creative possibilities available to everyday musicians are seemingly endless, so too are the multiskilling and project management challenges to be faced. In order to demystify the contemporary popular-music-making phenomenon, Marshall Heiser reassesses its myriad processes and wider sociocultural context through the lens of creativity studies, play theory and cultural psychology. This innovative new framework is grounded in a diverse array of creative-practice examples spanning the CBGBs music scene to the influence of technology upon modern-day music. First-hand interviews with Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), Bill Bruford (King Crimson, Yes) and others whose work has influenced the way records are made today are also included. Popular Music, Power and Play is as thought provoking as it will be indispensable for scholars, practitioners and aficionados of popular music and the arts in general.

In Listening to the Future, Bill Martin sets the scene for the emergence of progressive rock and examines the most important groups, from the famous to the obscure. He also surveys the pathbreaking albums and provides resources for readers to explore the music further. "Written with the insights of an academic, the authority of a musicologist, and—best of all—the passion of a true fan. Martin charts topographic oceans, courts crimson kings, does some brain salad surgery, and generally rocks out in 7/8 time." —Jim DeRogatis Sun-Times music critic

Unlike most books on rock music, Music of Yes does not focus on personalities, but instead on musical structures, lyrical vision, and cultural and historical context. Bill Martin situates one of the most creative groups from the progressive rock period, Yes, within the utopian ideals of the sixties and the experimental trend in rock music initiated by the Beatles and taken up by groups such as King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, and others. Working against the seemingly entrenched cynicism and "blues orthodoxy" among rock music critics, Martin demonstrates the power of Yes's romantic, utopian, "Blakean," ecological, multicultural, and feminist perspective, showing how this vision is developed through extended musical works. "I think this book will stand out as the most definitive study of Yes, and anyway, how could I not like a book that compares my ability to that of John Coltrane and Jimi Hendrix?" —Chris Squire Co-founder of Yes "Yes fans will flock to this paean to the world of 1960s 'art rock'. . . Martin's points about the artistic aspirations of '60s and '70s 'progressive' music are thought-provoking." —Booklist

The Story Of Yes – (Largely) In Their Own Words For his landmark 50th book, top rock writer Martin Popoff abandons his metal musings to celebrate the long and legendary life of Yes, a band he has loved since the 1970s. Using a timeline format, Popoff disentangles the convoluted tale of the band’s hirings and firings, their inspired creations, live triumphs and studio victories (as well as the occasional controversial failure.) With original interviews from Anderson, Bruford, Howe, Wakeman, the late Chris Squire and many others, the tale unfolds via an exhaustive chronology designed to satisfy the most knowledgeable of Yes fans. You just might learn what “Close To The Edge” actually means, or why Alan White and Jon Anderson might be seen prowling the junkyard for car parts! Not content with charting the band’s history, Popoff covers the major projects outside the Yes umbrella, such as Asia, GTR and Rick Wakeman’s extravaganzas, to paint a full picture. If you’ve been moved by classic albums like Fragile, Close To The Edge, Relayer, Going For The One, or more recent offerings like Fly From Here and Heaven And Earth, you’ll love this book, which perfectly captures the spirit of progressive rock’s first, biggest, and best band who have made it their mission to widen our perceptions of what music can be.
