Roberto Cacciapaglia - The Ann Steel album, LP 1979,Italy

Italian composer Roberto Cacciapaglia has explored a broad spectrum of styles, starting with Sonanze (Polydor, 1975), cosmic music for electronic keyboards, symphonic orchestra and singers. The 1976 composition Sei Note In Logica (Philips, 1979 - Proper, 2001) takes six notes and plays them in all possible combinations. He then straddled the line between avantgarde and pop music on the following releases: Ann Steel (1979), a collection of songs for the namesake supermodel, Generazioni Del Cielo (Fonit, 1982 - Proper, 2001), Angelus Rock (Polygram, 1992), Tra Cielo e Terra (CGD, 1996), Arcana (BMG, 2001), Tempus Fugit (BMG, 2003).

As requested!

"My Time"--wow. The music to a procession i never want to end; it took me forever before I even got to the other songs. None of them really hit me quite like that one, but it was still an interesting album to hear. Thank you!

Hello!
I'm looking for the album "Tempus Fugit" by Robeto Cacciapaglia. Do you have any possibilities to upload or sell it? It should be awesome! Thank you very much!
