TELAIO MAGNETICO "Live 1975" LP 1998 (Italy)

TELAIO MAGNETICO was an all-star live band and a short lived project of the mid-70ies. Their only recorded output consists of a session featuring Juri Camisasca, Lino "Carpa" Vaccina, Mino Di Martino (founder of the "enigmatic" ALBERGO INTERGALATTICO SPAZIALE posted previously here), Terra Di Benedetto, Roberto Mazza and Franco Battiato. Their music consists of ethereal voices against floating abstract soundscapes, free spaced-out electronic sections and wonderfully twisted cosmic dreamlike improvisations. Essential!

Issued by the Musicando label (year 1998) in 200 hand numbered copies (single cover, multi-color print, insert, 180 grams audiophile vinyl; each cover differs from the others by some graphic details). A 500 CD edition also exists.

Get it here.

the description sounds delicious, so
i'm just downloading this one. I've never heard anything by Franco Battiato even though the name surfaces here&there; could you simply tell me which record(s) would be a good place to start?
cheers, Darek

BATTIATO, Franco "Fetus" 1972
BATTIATO, Franco "Pollution" 1972
BATTIATO, Franco "Sulle corde di aries" 1973
BATTIATO, Franco "Clic" 1974
BATTIATO, Franco "M.elle le Gladiator" 1975

are his best albums in my opinion and a perfect recommendation.
