I was listening to an online Prog radio station and heard a track from American 70's Prog band Fireballet. I think it was from their "Night on Bald Mountain" album and i thought it was fantastic.
 
Now I need to get that album but haven't been able to find it anywhere. Anyone know if it's available still anywhere?

Night on Bald Mountain is a fantastic album,but don't waste your money on their second one,it is terrible.
 
If you Google the band and album there are a few places where you can buy it,but quite a few of the sites say "product unavailable".I have had it for years and years,so I don't know, it might be a little tough to find.

I thought that I saw something somewhere that their CD's were going to finally be released in a CD format.  I looked for them about 5 years ago when I read a blurb that referred to them and Starcastle as being prog bands.  Both were bands that I hadn't heard of so I tried checking them out.  Starcastle I was able to find, but at least at that time I found that Fireballet were not available in the CD format.

"Night in Bold Mountain" was released on cd by Setticlavio Records under Passport Records licence plus 7 bonus tracks (from second album),but that was happened many years ago.

Thanks for the info guys. Erik has sent me a PM with a couple of possibilities so I'll try them first and see if I have any luck.
 
sounds like it may be tough to find.

I used to book these guys at my college in NJ back in the mid 70s.  They were a phenominal band live.  You might have to check eBay.

From what I have found, the Japanese mini is the only available version.

It's the same trick as with the re-release of Bacamarte with Depois Do Fim on CD Evil%20Smile
