PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI, better known in English speaking countries as P.F.M., were arguably the finest Italian Progressive rock band of the 1970s and certainly one of the most well known. A successful act in their homeland, they came to international attention when they signed to EMERSON, LAKE and PALMER’s label MANTICORE in 1973. A series of albums such as “Photos of Ghosts”, “The World Became the World”, “Cook” and “Chocolate Kings” earned the band a loyal following in the UK, the USA, Canada and Japan, with interest in PFM in Britain gaining enough momentum to see the band being invited to perform two radio concerts for BBC Radio in 1975 and 1976 (at the BBC’s Paris Theatre in London) and to participate in the classic BBC 2 TV series “The Old Grey Whistle Test” on a number of occasions.

These audio and video recordings have remained in the BBC archives and are released for the first time in this clamshell boxed set over two CDs and a DVD (NTSC / Region Free).

The set also includes an illustrated booklet with essay. Erhältlich ab 03.10.2014
