Premiata Forneria Marconi - Photos of Ghosts LP




Formed in Milan this Italian progressive 70's rock band produced an incredible album with Photos of Ghosts. It's rare today to enjoy an actual story told from the start to finish.


Combining both traditional Italian musical influence with a classical progressive rock edge that is reminiscent of the super groups of the day. Jethro Tull and ELP immediately come to mind.
PFM has stood the test of time. They are still touring today, mostly throughout Italy and are considering a box set compilation of their life's work.
Truly one for your collection. Get the UK or Canadian gatefold (MC66668) pressings. By far the purest Vintage Sound pressings. They are on the Manticore Records Label and were not surprisingly signed by none other than Emerson Lake & Palmer.
