No problem about the Locus album, H! Todd helped out with that one, so much credit goes to him!

Cool to see the love for the latest Syndone album! I've been really enjoying it, but seeing the positive response some of you guys in here and elsewhere on the Archives had towards it encouraged me to whip up a favourable review!

Oh man, looking at all those 70's RPI reissues about to hit, I can see about 20 I want to snap up! My aching wallet!

Luca Scherani (Höstsonaten,Finistere etc.) has reformed Trama his band from the late 90s.(the band also features La Coscienza di Zeno, Not a good Sign bass Player)

Höstsonaten's The Rime of.. Chapter II is in the work.

Luca will also be on the Periplo album out next week (with Paolo Tixi TdC)

And thanx to ABB for the Review of Locus Amoenus. They somehow escaped me before. Great band!

Anybody else been enjoying the latest Syndone album `Odysseas'? Really cool mix of jazz/fusion, lots of interesting percussion sounds, bombastic ELP inspired keyboard domination and one of the most romantic, sweeping vocals I've heard all year!

1972. More library than RPI, but not bad.

Good to see that the new Lagartija is now closing in,
was waiting for a long time.

I hope the new Albums by Egonon, Gran Turismo Veloce and
La Torre del'Alchimista will follow soon.

Holy moly, hot damn, katjing and a lot of other things!!!!!!

And on top of that, this just hit the inbox from Lagartija:


"Ottobre" è il primo estratto da "Amore di vinile", il nostro terzo disco che uscirà per Lizard Records e che sarà disponibile in anteprima venerdì sera alle ore 22:00 al Tendenze Festival di Piacenza. A presto novità!--

Please help fellas!


They are definetly offered as single issues, and as far as I know
all at once.

I have no further Information on packaging though (digi or jewel case).


Good deal.

Lol I like the idea of thin cardboard sleeves and getting every single album in a nice set.
I would think that would be the case. Has to be. ;)

Yeah......but it's vinyl my friend

If they ever decide to release classic RPI albums on vinyl for under 10 euros, I'd have to file for bankruptcy...

^ Oh that's a great record Dave!

And to think just a month ago I got Il Volo's debut for 30$ (LP Smile) now I guess it will be available for a reasonable price again...oh well...

Well shiver me timbers!
That's quite a deal on those albums. I mean, I remember some of those titles being outrageously prized just a little while back.
I do have most of them, although I purchased them used from a guy who was tired of the music from his youth. Madness I say!!!...but I'm glad he sold them to me nevertheless.
I do have my eye on the Reale Accademia Di Musica though. I remember reading a brilliant review from Finn-Jim making me salivate at the time.
