*Leño (1977-1983) . Their first LP (same name, Leño, 1979) contains some prog tracks. These two are La nana ("The Lullaby") and Castigo ("Punishment"):

I've scanned the thread and don't think I see any mention of Circus. They were a swizz prog-band that released three albums. Their second one, Movin' On (1977), is generally regarded a classic and is full of nice flutes and other cool stuff.

A couple of samples :



Dawn is an 8 minute instrumental from their album ..



The title track at 22 minutes something is the album's most ambitious piece.

It's scary how most of the time I will make an assessment about a band I've never heard based on the genre, description, and cover art without actually taking a listen. Both of those songs were fantastic and not at all what I expected a Swiss prog band from the mid 70's to sound like.

Would like to second this. It's a damn fine prog album.

You should check out the Greek band Aphrodite's child, their early stuff was more traditional psychedelic but the album 666 is more psych-prog and one of my favorite's in the genre.

Another vote for Gazpacho: great band. But also try Hostsonaten, Italian classical/prog/ambient/whatever. This is "Entering the halls of winter", from their album "Winterthrough".
