Arturo Stalteri - E Il Pavone Parlo' Alla Luna (LP)
Italian composer Arturo Stalteri’s 1987 release on the infamous Lynx label. The centerpiece of this album is undoubtedly Raga Occidentale. The entire piece is structured around a fractured and hypnotizing tambura and piano loop, with primitive drum machine, flute, piano, synthesizer and tabla floating in and out of the frame. The piece is nearly sidelong, but I could listen to it for days on end, a totally mesmerizing mantra.
Typical of all Lynx pressings the covers are all different and hand painted and numbered by Roberto Donnini.
EX - Unplayed vintage stock, some minor wear on cover
