Extremely rare and very sought after 1978 Italian privately pressed vinyl LP manufactured solely in 100 copies - complete with foldout insert and printed inner sleeve in fully laminated picture cover.

Condition:
Vinyl is in beautifully perfect condition - shiny and without any wear what so ever - NO sleeve lines, no marks of any kind - just plain shiny perfect. Labels and insert are in equally perfect condition.
Inner sleeve has some degree of light wrinklling and a 1,5" mid right seam split - picture cover has a number written in ballpoint in the lower right back corner... which has been removed leaving only the imprint. Back cover has light discolouration along upper and lower inner seam assembly, which stems from the glue used in the manufacturing process. Cover has very little laminate wear including two lower front corner laminate wrinkles from unobtrusive cover handling. Cover is easily graded close to near perfect.

Please note that the picture shows cover fading slightly into gray against the left of the cover - the is only due to the scanning process.

Dag Asbjørnsen has described the 'Albergo Intergalliato Spaziale' album in the following way:
'100 copies were originally pressed of this album of experimental music, which sounded similar to the early Battiato albums combined with Gilly Smith's weirdest types of 'space whisper'. Other vaguely comparable efforts were made by Pierrot Lunaire (the avant-garde parts on their second album) and Opus Avantra (the vocal excesses of Donella Del Monaco). "Tastiera Solo" and "Improvvisazione" were instrumental and vocal manipulations of the choral theme in the last movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony. This album has recently been offered for really high prices on the collector's market, even if few people will appreciate this monotonous 'sound poem'. Mino and Terra were married and had been members of Battiato's mid-70's tour outfit Telaio Magnetico. Mino also played with I Giganti.''
