Premiata Forneria Marconi - Photos Of Ghosts / Great And Early Italian Prog-Rock First Japan Press - LP Album - Stereo - 1973/1973

★★★Premiata Forneria Marconi ‎

Premiata Forneria Marconi (aka PFM) is an Italian progressive rock band formed in 1971.

Among the Italian progressive rock groups of the seventies (Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Stormy Six, Osanna, Acqua Fragile, The Trip, Goblin, Area, Perigeo, Le Orme, Opus Avantra, New Trolls), Premiata Forneria Marconi was the only one over to be successful across national borders and especially in the United States of America
At that time they were one of the few Italian bands to make it into the album charts of the famous US magazine Billboard.

It's musically related to bands like Genesis, the progressive part of Pink Floyd or early King Crimson and Gentle Giant.
In addition, it was also able to develop its own style in the following decades, also thanks to the remarkable technical prowess of its components.
