02. Many Struggles - Acous 12 & 6 string guit, duo vox, brushed snare & hi-hat w/vibes

Citadel® started as a band in the late seventies with "Silence of Surrender" on the first QFM Hometown Album & live Agora simul-cast in Columbus, Ohio. In 1990, their debut CD, "The Citadel of Cynosure & Other Tales" was chosen as "Best of KLOS Local Licks" in Los Angeles. Shows from Ohio to California included The Troubador, Roxy and many more. The self-produced band also originated and co-produced the first ProgFest at UCLA's Royce Hall - this event changed the face of progressive music and spawned countless similar festivals across the globe. Citadel's most recent releases include, "Vintage Vinyls" "Regenerative Generation" At The Rainbow's End" and others are available on the bands website at www.citadelsongs.com, along with MP3 downloads, lyrics, photos... Now based on the West Coast, the band is always changing members around founder, R. Douglass/G. Whitman. The next CD, will be available in 2007.
"Although (we're) not self identified as progressive, that is what the reviewers were likening us to from the start. We don't cater to that, but we don't mind it either, what are genre labels anyway but restrictive subjective opinions - not everything we do classifies as a 'progressive' song, it's more about the diversity of styles on our releases that gives us a progressive feel overall..." comments Whitman in a 2006 podcast interview.
