Mass-Media Stars - Acqua Fragile

Mass-Media Stars
Following on from the successful series of reissues of Italian progressive rock legends PFM and BANCO, ESOTERIC RECORDINGS is pleased to announce the release of both albums by Italy’s ACQUA FRAGILE. Formed in Milan, Acqua Fragile featured BERNARDO LANZETTI (vocals, guitar), GINO CAMPANINI (guitar, vocals), MAURIZIO MORI (keyboards, vocals), FRANZ DONDI (Bass) and PIERO CANAVERA (Drums, Guitar, Vocals). 

Inspired by British groups such as Genesis and Family and by the success of fellow group PFM, ACQUA FRAGILE wrote original material and sung lyrics in English. No mere clones of their British counterparts, ACQUA FRAGILE’s second album, MASSMEDIA STARS, was an accomplished work with many marvellous songs and enjoyed a release in the USA. The music was inspired enough for vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti to be sought out as a future member of PFM.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue is newly re-mastered and fully restores the original album artwork. The booklet also features a new essay with an interview with Bernardo Lanzetti.
