Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a 4CD clamshell boxed set by PFM, “The Manticore Studio Albums 1973 – 1977”. 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.

This clamshell boxed set gathers these four albums in replica album sleeve wallets and also includes a new poster. It is a fine celebration of the band’s studio work for the Manticore label.
