Braen e Raskovich - Drammatico SOLD
Holy grail alert!! We're proud to offer for the 1st time on the site this masterpiece, one of the rarest, obscure, insane Italian library released on the micro label, Panda Records. They were suposed to be pressed at maximum 200 copies...
This lp composed by the cult duo, Braen e Raskovich aka Alessandroni and Sorgini is just unique, we have never listened something like that, a kind of esoteric - dark mass made by entranced Tibetan monks under acid, the first track and introduction of this terrific opus is like a freakout explosion in your mind, then come the mental experience including demented syncopated drums, hypnotic synths, gloomy guitar effect, dark atmosphere, ghostly voices, trippy oriental percussions... It doesn't sound like an usual library, more like a diy lsd-psych-out performance.
The record is in excellent condition, just some superficial marks, plays excellent!!
Several light stains on the back cover.
The Group - The Feed-Back SOLD
We are honoured to offer for sale a copy of this legendary album here on Holywax! Original first pressing from 1970 on RCA out of Italy by "The Group" (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza), a side project of well known soundtrack composer Ennio Morricone along with other experimental musicians.
The rock-focused attitude of the record is quite surprising for such a team of classically-trained men already in their forties! Among the manifold musical innovations occured in recent years, one of the trends both in Europe and in the US is to set up ensemble devoted to improvisation.
These bands show similarities in their rich expressions, but could nonetheless be pigeonholed in two great families: one directly coming from the Jazz tradition and one of a more intellectual kind, connected with contemporary Classical music. These trends had been deeply analysed by «The Feed-Back» whose bold approach to music, more linked with current tendencies, placed them at the forefront of the Beat scene.
This album consists of three long instrumental tracks, somewhere in between psych-rock, avantgarde jazz and funky jams. The sound is definitely experimental and ostentatiously "underground". None of the instruments involved tries to be reassuring: the guitar is scratchy, the trumpet sounds choked, piano and keyboards are always dissonant and a background of "proto-industrial" noises is present all along the record. The music, anyway, is thrilling. The drum patterns, in particular, are extraordinary regular, tight and groovy. Enough speaking! For those who don't already know this masterpiece, try the long soundclip below!
Both cover and record are in beautiful NM condition. The cover shows only very little signs of ageing otherwise is in perfect condition.
The record is probably unplayed except to record this soundclip. It only shows very tiny surface marks probably due to pulling the record in and out of its sleeve. It is shiny with no spindle marks and plays perfect all the way through! Don't miss the opportunity to get this Holy Grail in great condition, serious offer only!
Alessandro Alessandroni - Open Air Parade SOLD
Sermi SR-ST 136
Here we have another crazy hot record at the moment and impossible to find. Open Air Parade has been released in 1972 on the mythical Sermi label out of Rome, Italy. Probably one of the best session by the maestro Alessandro Alessandroni with two tracks composed by the great bassist Giovanni Tommaso (Indefinitive Atmosphere, Rebus, Echoing America, Vivere A Tokyo, Artigianato....).
The music here is simply fantastic, maestro Alessandroni gives us his best effort with tracks like "Cielo Verde", "Spiagge Azzura" "Capelli Rossi" or "Parata N.2" amongst other. Expect some refined funk with psychedelic hints and lush arrangements, great hip hop drum patterns, amazing scat vocals and so on.
The cover is in great shape and is graded NM with only some stain on back, check the pictures!
The record is still shiny with some visible marks and therefore graded VG++. It plays very nice and loud with only some soft little pops here and there. The long soundclip recorded speaks better for itself. Not to be missed!
