PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI has been the pionneer of Italian Progressive rock groups, displaying a lyrical, romantic and delicate music, full of fineness. A great melodic and instrumental richness, somptuous compositions and arrangements. Pete SINFIELD (KING CRIMSON) produced "Photos Of Ghosts", the group won an international recognition. Sometimes compared with the early KING CRIMSON, the group had its own musical personality, with its elegant music, extremely presenting, on 75 minutes and fourteen tracks selected amongst the whole history from this band, a good sample from all its albums from 1972 to 1982. Already available in its Italian version, "The World Became The World", issued internationally with Pete SINFIELD's lyrics, enables us to appreciate the refined, contrasted and elaborated romanticism close to the most melodious pieces of KING CRIMSON's rock (With titles like "I Talk To The Wind") with English lyrics. Multi-CD set of PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI's Tokyo concert from the Japan tour, "Live In Japan" features an incredible line-up (Franco MUSSIDA, Franz Di CIOCCO, Flavio PREMOLI, Patrick DJIVAS, Luccio FABBRI & MONTERISI), only playing classic tunes from the Seventies ! Please also note that the double-CD release of that same performance (May 12, 2002) includes two unreleased tracks ! One is a cover of Franco BATTIATO's "Bandiera Bianca", the second is "Sea Of Memory", a new track written and recorded by Peter HAMMILL together with the band !!!
