A very nice album indeed, but I miss Sabrina (Simona's sister) a bit.

Yes, Pierre! I remember you recommended this Ping Pong one a while back, and I really enjoyed it! Has it been given a reissue yet?

Murple!!! Wow, will enjoy hearing that new album!

Also great to see some love for the Latte E Mielle `remake' album H and Jim, it is very special indeed

^^  Good news to hear on Metamorfosi!  Should be worth the wait.....I hope.
 
Just got PASSIO SECUNDUM MATTHEUM: THE COMPLETE WORK today by Latte e Miele.  Totally amazing!  I am not typically a fan of a re-duex of an album but this is an exception.  The original was a 5 star in my book, this one is a 6!!!

It looks like Metamorfosi are working on the long awaited Purgatorio.

There will be also a live Album with Spitaleri and a Project called "Church of Prog" (with Fonderia's keyboardist)

Divae are working on a new Album...

and that, my friend, is exactly why I also left that in the order! I vividly recalled you telling me you thought very highly of it!

The reissue of the sole `Capsicum Red' album was one I ditched...I know it's notorious for it's wretched mixing, which really robbed the album of it's potential. I like slowly adding some more obscure vintage RPI titles to my collection, so I may stil get it, but it didn't survive this current round.

They need someone like Steven Wilson to tear it apart and put it back together!

Great, Jim, I'll give it a listen shortly! My order was getting really expensive, so I had to cull several titles, but because in the back of my mind I kept thinking `I'm sure Jim gave that one a very positive review...', I made sure to keep that one in!

You (and Pierre!) have inspired me to properly dig those two Doris CD's out and really listen to them properly. I think at least one of them was pretty good!

There's apparently going to be a Bartoccetti book released by Black Widow sometime (I think) next year! From what I can tell it was be a history of his music, interviews, photos, etc, but the post I read on Black Widow's Facebook page seemed pretty unsure! Very slight details so far, but one to no doubt keep an eye on.

Michael, yeah I loved that NG album! 

Your post also inspired me to listen to some Doris on YT.  Pretty cool and wild music!  And those eyes of hers.  Wow.

How about "Il Calore Umano" one of my fave prog pieces ever! The Alberto Radius guitar solo is sizzle-ville LOL
