Artist: BATTIATO, FRANCO
Title: Foetus
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl Magic
Country: Italy
Price: $35.00
"An internationally known artist, Franco Battiato has been everything in his long career, from beat singer to avantgarde performer, producer, and contemporary music composer. His beginnings lay in the mid 60s, with many singles released with no particular success, the first two under his real name of Francesco. He had left his native Sicily (he was born in Jonia, near Catania in 1945) moving to Milan around 1965. In 1970 after his collaboration with Osage Tribe (that he quit before their only album Arrowhead) he had a record deal with Bla Bla, releasing his first solo album in 1972. Foetus, housed in a outrageous cover (reproducing a foetus) was definitely a prog album, but a very original one, with a minimalist sound mainly based on the use of a VCS3 synth, unusual lyrics, complex arrangements. Two tracks, Energia and Una cellula were also released as single. Produced by Pino Massara in the 70s, Foetus remained unreleased until 1999, when Vinyl Magic finally released it on CD (VM CD 065). This little gem of Italian progressive music is now reissued in its most suitable format, as a black 180 gram vinyl enclosed in a beautiful argent laminated cover." - Vinyl Magic.
SOLD OUT

Artist: CIRCUS 2000
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl Magic
Country: Italy
Price: $40.00
"A band from the Turin area, Circus 2000 debuted in 1970 on RiFi label with an eponymous LP that, although it did not represent a new level of sound, it fell like a bolt from the blue on an Italian scene still anchored to the beat schemes of the 60s. Circus 2000 was not a real progressive album, since it derived from the psychedelic and west-coast scenes from the USA, but its still considered one of the LPs that opened to the florid Italian pop season, which would explode just a couple of years later. The album cover artwork, the English lyrics, the psychedelic sound supporting the beautiful voice of singer Silvana Aliotta, all these ingredients made Circus 2000 an unique phenomenon in the musical Italian panorama, and many believed that the band was actually American. The album is one of the rarest items in its original version, and its here reprinted in a perfect 180 gram black vinyl replica." - Vinyl Magic
