Refugees: A Charisma Records Anthology 1969-1978


Vi segnalo questa brillante ristampa, uscita qualche mese fa, dell'antologia curata dall'etichetta Charisma, una delle più importanti per quanto riguardava il progressive rock degli anni '70. Ecco la presentazione in inglese:


Led by the visionary Tony Stratton Smith, The “Famous” Charisma label became one of the most innovative independent labels of the 1970s, becoming home to the cream of talent in what would become known as progressive rock. The first 10 years of that story are told here across 3CDs featuring a who’s who of prog, including tracks by Genesis, Peter Gabriel, The Nice, Van Der Graaf Generator, Lindisfarne, Peter Hammill, and many more. Amongst these well known artists are also several rarities such a track from the Hot Thumbs O'Reilly album (actually Jim Pembroke of Finnish proggers Wigwam), the Swedish multi-instrumentalist Bo Hansson, as well as an appearance from Monty Python!

The 3CD, 44-track set comes with a massive 48 page booklet which features a 20k word essay on the label and the artists featured on Refugees: A Charisma Records Anthology 1969-1978
