Delivery from Mellow Records, Italy...
CELESTE - IL RISVEGLIO DEL PRINCIPE (MMP 540) CD - nicely majestic new album from the 70s Italian prog legend, which unlike most reformations manages to capture some of their old spirit whils progressing on to new creative ideas and many surprises along the way.
GIALMA 3 - RAIN'S DREAM (MMP 364) CD - cool breezy jazz fusion from Italy that sounds more 1968 than 1976, with a hint of Latino soundtracks and a guitarist in that Georg Wadenius, Pierre Cavalli, Django Reinhardt semi-electric style
PHILIPPE GRANCHER - 3000 MILES AWAY (MMP 449) CD - Wonderful symphonic prog meets experimental / cosmic electronic, release originally on the collectable Pôle label. Sounds really nice on CD too!
LIVING LIFE - LET: FROM EXPERIENCE TO EXPERIENCE (MMP 259) CD - awesome 1978 Italian spacey prog fusion. These were formed by ex-Circus 2000 drummer Johnny Betti, though you'd never guess, as this is cosmic fusion taking a step on from Perigeo and Agora, with lots of synths & fluid riffing.
LIVING LIFE - MYSTERIOUS DREAM (MMP 265) CD - Even more tripped-out on the ether than their debut, this "Mysterious Dream" heads for space, & some! We thought these Mellow titles were deleted years ago, so it's a surprise to be able to get more!
PRAXIS - LA ETERNIDAD DE LO EFIMERO (MMP 213) CD - lively instrumental prog form Mexico in 1987 by a band with ex Iconoclasta members, and in a similar style
PREGHIERA DI SASSO - PREGHIERA DI SASSO (MMP 267) CD - One I never thought we'd get in stock! Another of those uniquely Italian fusion acts, indebted to Perigeo, and with Soft Machine, Nucleus touches, they had little in the way of a distinctive style of their own, but were excellent nonetheless. The Mellow CD couples their side of the PREGHIERA DI SASSO / DIAPASON record and add 20 minutes of early sessions (from 1972) when they had a more prog/psychedelic feel
TANGLE EDGE - SERPENTARY QUARTERS (MMP 466) CD - First time we've ever had this one in stock on CD. This covers fourteen years, from May 1992 to November 2006 of previously unreleased cream of the crop recordings, perfectly fusing psychedelic rock with cutting edge prog fusion.
