Ellesmere - Les Chateaux De La Loire 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-AMS LP 119
Very nice, pastoral Italian progressive rock with elements of The Geese and The Ghost (as it says below) but also Italian releases like Celeste! John Hackett is a featured player here! Comes in a lovely, gatefold sleeve!

"Ellesmere is the brainchild of Roberto Vitelli, bass & guitar player from Italian prog band Taproban. As opposite to the bombastic sound of the band, with Ellesmere Vitelli focuses on an acoustic and yet symphonic approach, delivering a stunning 40 minutes suite much in the style of early Genesis and Anthony Phillips works (ref. The Geese and the Ghost).

As the title suggests, every section of the suite is dedicated to one of the ancient French castles that reside along the Loire river. Several acoustic, classical and 12 strings arpeggiated guitar layers are topped with beautiful string and flute melodies (John Hackett is guesting on most of the tracks) and an original vintage Mellotron provides further orchestration. Special guests also include Daniele Pomo from RanestRane on drums and percussion, and vocal master Luciano Regoli (Raccomandata con ricevuta di ritorno, Samadhi) added multitrack vocal harmonies on four songs. The stunning cover artwork was especially created for the album by Luciano Regoli."
