This was music of the final 100 discs featured on the Gagliarchives, on Programs 928 through 930 (11/26/05 to 12/10/05). Although this is the 'Top 100' of the year, there were nearly 1100 Progressive Rock related releases in the course of the year, and many genres are represented. This list was compiled through a year's worth of research from myself and all those in the Global Progressive Rock Network.I want to personally thank the thousands of listeners in the Delaware Valley, all the subscribers to the E groups at Yahoo!, the subscribers to our newsletter,  Ken Golden, Roger Beckwith, Jack Webster, Dutch Progressive Rock Website , Chad Hutchinson of Ghostland, Martin Paul, and our buddies at Misterpoll as always.
