PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi)Marconi Bakery 1973/1974 (Photos Of Ghosts/L'Isola Di Niente/World Became The World/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
(Italy), 1973/1974. New Copy 3CD ... $31.99
An incredible triple-header of Italian prog – three important albums from Premiata Forneria Marconi – packaged together in a single book-like set, with added notes and photos – plus bonus tracks too! Photos Of Ghosts is a record that got huge circulation at a worldwide level – maybe making PFM one of the most-exposed groups of the legendary Italian scene in the early 70s – a wave of groups that took strong inspiration from the sounds of Yes, Genesis, and other UK acts – but really pushed the music with their own sense of creativity! The cuts on the album aren't just jamming rock – but really show a more expansive view, as long instrumental passages almost seem to draw from jazz or soundtrack complexity – with especially nice guitar, flute, violin, and keyboard lines – and vocals come in at just the right moments to send things home. Titles include "Mr 9 Til 5", "Old Rain", "Celebration", "River Of Life", and "Photos Of Ghosts". Next is L'Isola Di Diente – classic work from PFM – one of those groups that could be complex and compelling, yet never get too lost down all the many pathways they opened in their music! The album's got a blend of instrumental dynamics to match the very best of the British prog acts of the time – in a way that maybe leapfrogs the rest of the European scene for its sharpness, and the way it can balance out instrumental solos with just the right amount of vocals. Titles include "Is My Face On Straight", "Via Lumiere", "Dolcissima Maria", and "La Luna Nuova". World Became The World is a record that has an evocative title and cover – and an evocative sound to match – that heavenly version of prog that made PFM one of the few groups who could both be jamming and sensitive at the same time – often within the space of a single song on the record! The group's in their classic lineup here – awash in flute, guitar, violin, and keyboards – on songs that include a number of songs with help from Peter Sinfield – who maybe adds in some of the gentle lyricism he brought to his work with King Crimson. Titles include "The Mountain", "Have Your Cake & Beat It", "Just Look Away", "Four Holes In The Ground", and "Is My Face On Straight". 3CD set features 7 bonus live tracks too – including a great version of "21st Century Schizoid Man".

VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 5 – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Gritty grooves all the way through – all pulled from rare 45s from the early days of rock and R&B – often heavy on guitars, with a fair bit of instrumentals overall! The mix of modes is exactly what's promised in the title – sounds that start in rockabilly and end in surf, all hand-picked by the mighty Keb Darge, who first found his calling in funk – with lots of help from his musical soulmate Little Edith – a pair of great ears who really know how to move way past the hits and obvious work from this generation! Just about every cut here is super-rare – no overplayed oldies here – and titles include "Twisted Fender" by Jonnie & The Cyclones, "Later On" by The Dynamics, "Neb's Tune" by Ahab & The Wailers, "Ramblin On" by The Thunderballs, "Maybelline" by Ron Haydock & The Boppers, "Panther Pounce" by The Jesters, "Swing Bop Boogie" by Alvis Wayne, "Teenage Ball" by Elroy Dietzel, and "Don't Be Gone Long" by Bob Doss.
