Wot band does your prog collection start with?

0.720 ALEACEON - SAME
(Mexico RIO-ish)

(If you do not know what RIO stands for, then likely you are a sadly predictable audiofool.)

My first was Ummagumma by Pink Floyd at the age of thirteen. Before I only listened to The Beatles.

My first is Dark side of the moon.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

Apologies, I misunderstood. I thought you meant alphabetically not chronologically. Mine would be ELP "Welcome Back My Friends" triple live album.

Seventh Wave - Psi-Fi

The "Camera Obscura" / "Star Palace of the Sombre Warrior" sequence is 15min of prog heaven.
Pity the band only lasted a couple of years.

Things to Come and Psi-Fi are the only prog albums I have left. The more prog disappeared up its own arse, the more I got into 60s R&B and soul and the shorter my hair got. :lol: I was born too late.
