Celeste (Principe Di Un Giornio)
"Mostly acoustic, dreamy and delicate prog. A studio group, they had a very limited live experience. This their first album,
, also known as
Principe di un giorno
, was released by the small Grog label only in 1976, but the tracks had been composed in 1973 and recorded in 1974. It contains seven tracks, with pastoral lyrics and a style not far from the softer side of early King Crimson. Fantastic reissue with only the first copies in white vinyl. 180 gram vinyl, gatefold cover."
The Complete Recordings (1969-1977)
"Finally on a 4CD-box, the complete works of Celeste, starting from
! Many records in this box were out of print for a long time! Stunning bonus tracks included! Apart from the classic and seminal recordings of
(including one track that would later become 'Zarathustra' of Museo Rosenbach and originally was featured only on the vinyl version of
Viaggio Senza Andata
), this deluxe box set features their symphonic magnum opus 'Principe Di Un Giorno', but also the haunting 'Celeste 2' and the follow-up project 'Saint Tropez'. All tracks have been carefully remastered by Celeste's Ciro Perrino. But the most incredible bonus is the original and complete demo recording for the Celeste debut called 'Prince Of One Day', recorded with a female singer and with English lyrics. A stunning historical document! This limited oversized deluxe box-set also features a huge, glossy 44-page book with the complete history of Celeste and the Liguria prog-scene with more than 100 rare pictures, directly from Ciro Perrino's archive. A must-have!"
