70's Prog Rock (italian And The Like)

Norrin, I'm stoked that you listened to Colosseum. Dude, did you notice the crazy panning? On one of the songs on Daughter of Time, the drums (in mono) are panned hard left, and in another the vocals are in the same spot. I love that album, but they did some weird shit with production back then. Still haven't got Valentyne. Tried downloading from you, but you didn't have any slots open, nugga.
Shawn, I listened to Triumvirat. That album was pretty sweet, too.

House, When I was in audio school, they told us that that was a method of production back in the day, to create the effect of the drummer being on one side of the stage and the band on the other. Wacky stuff man! I have to grant you a slot next time. My bad. Did you get a chance to check out Igginbottoms Wrench? That album will blow you away! Especially for 1969!
Other bands I've recently come across are:
Celeste - Principe di un Giorno - Soft, almost folkish prog. Very mellow and emotional.
Alas - Alas - Really long songs, but very rad songs. Especially track 1.
Perigeo - Genealogia - La Valle dei Templi - A definition of 70's jazz/prog. (instrumental as far as I could tell)
The Soft Machine - The Soft Machine - Guitar by Allan Holdsworth! Flipping amazing album!
Déjà-vu - Between the leaves - Kind of remind me of the Minibosses style of playing. Check track 4. around 6 minutes.
Hatfield & The North - Hatfield & The North - Smooth yet very weird stuff.

I just found this the other day. It has so thoroughly blown my mind! Track 4 reminds me of the theme from The Pradator only in prog Rock form. Love those drums too!
Alf Emil Eik -Joy & Breath of Eternity (1979)
I can't accurately put this band into words. They are very creative... That is all. If you see it, GET IT! Track 2 ftw!
Celeste - Principe Di Un Giorno (1976)
Not sure if they have been mentioned or not yet. They are really REALLY mellow and relaxing, melodic and emotional prog. The vocals are orgasmicaly rad.

LEB I SOL - Kalabalak
Track 3. Bistra voda (4:49)
The Prog Archives have a playable version of this track just above the reviews section. I must say this track is almost EXACTLY what I started this thread for.

As for Star One, I highly approve of them. Definitely have the spirit of old prog in them.
House, you should look for the Kaipa album "Keyholder". Modern prog though it may be, it's absoutely rad for all the reasons old prog was. Maybe because they are from the 70's themselves .
Good news! Starcastle has reformed and is working out their new tour! I would shit my pants to catch this! Recently ordered 3 of their albums from eBay. I'm hooked!
