A NEW RE-MASTERED RELEASE OF PFM’s CONCERT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM IN MAY 1976
INCLUDES ILLUSTRATED BOOKLET WITH NEW ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a 2CD live album featuring a concert by PFM, recorded at the University of Nottingham on 1st May 1976 during the UK tour to promote the album “Chocolate Kings”.
PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI, better known in English speaking countries as PFM, were arguably the finest Italian Progressive rock band of the 1970’s and certainly one of the most well- known. A successful act in their home land, they came to international attention when they signed to EMERSON, LAKE and PALMER’s label MANTICORE in 1973, recording a series of albums with English lyrics, some penned by ELP and KING CRIMSON lyricist PETE SINFIELD. Over the next four years they released four studio albums for the label, PHOTOS OF GHOSTS, THE WORLD BECAME THE WORLD, CHOCOLATE KINGS and JET LAG.
“Celebration – Live in Nottingham 1976” captures a powerful set by the line-up of Bernardo Lanzetti (vocals), Flavio Premoli (keyboards and vocals), Franco Mussida (guitar and vocals), Franz Di Cioccio (drums, percussion and vocals), Mauro Pagani (woodwinds and violin) and Patrick Djivas (bass). Featuring such classic material as ‘Four Holes in the Ground’, ‘Celebration’, ‘Paper Charms’ and ‘Chocolate Kings’ along with greatly extended versions of ‘La Carroza di Hans’ and ‘Alta Loma Five ‘til Nine’, this album presents the entire concert over two CDs and features an illustrated booklet with essay.
