Canterbury Scene: The Basics

The trademark Canterbury Sound is best understood by putting it into context. At its origins, the Canterbury Scene emerged during a key developing point in rock music; in the midst of 60s psychedelic rock experimentation, but also before the common motifs of 70s progressive rock had really taken hold. This influence, combined with the supreme talent of its members, allowed the scene to be a breeding ground for some of the greatest rock music ever made.
