Battiato, Franco - Foetus vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 27-VM LP 065
"Franco Battiato was an Italian pop singer who for a span in the 70s made a string of very experimental albums that fit very roughly in the vein of groups such as Opus Avantra or Pierrot Lunaire. Battiato on all of these titles (and beyond) set out to create completely new musical forms, and evolved from strange pop and rock realms to systemic and minamalist music before returning to pop music."-Expose/Mike McLatchey.

This is the rare version made with English lyrics for the market outside of Italy, but never-released until nearly 40 years later!

"In 1970 after his collaboration with Osage Tribe (who he quit before their only album, Arrowhead) he had a record deal with Bla Bla, releasing his first solo album in 1972.

Fetus was definitely a prog album, but a very original one, with a minimalist sound mainly based on the use of a VCS3 synth, unusual lyrics, complex arrangements."
