500 numbered copies Remastered from the original tapes. Orange Vinyl During the 1970s, Italy was one of the most exciting and fascinating musical contexts in Europe, birthing seminal projects and artists like Franco Battiato, Aktuala, Lino 'Capra ' Vaccina, Giusto Pio, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Futuro Antico, and so many more. Defining the scene was an ethos that rigorously pursued creative freedom and experimentation, with its artists fluidly moving between popular music - rock, prog, jazz, etc. - and more explicitly avant-garde approaches and forms. At the centre of this movement was the percussionist, Toni Esposito, whose stunning fourth solo LP, La Banda Del Sole  - originally issued by Philips in 1978 - has finally received a beautiful vinyl reissue via Sony.  Tony Esposito's music lives by itself, and this album has it all. It is a continuous nourishment of aspirations, intuitions, knowledge, improvisations. Insane flow, high energy, melodic beauty and a telepathic interaction! An absolute killer CLASSIC!
