Verified Purchase. Premiata Forneria Marconi more commonly known as PFM were probaly the first Italian prog rock group to have international success. This handsome little box set contains the four albums they released on ELP's label Manticore. The music is /5(40).
Manticore is not a bad album and I definitely prefer it to Thornography, which I had to round up to a 3 star rating because was not an option. The main issue is that although this album starts and ends strong, many of the songs in the middle blend together and don't really stand out/5().
· PFM. THE MANTICORE STUDIO ALBUMS Cherry Red Records. 4CD clamshell box. Available now. Making good use of the ‘classic years’ tag, Cherry Red gather 4 albums from Italian flagbearers for progressive rock. No doubt that the Italians love their prog rock. They were the nation who saw the light and embraced the fledgling Genesis in the early Seventies, in turn whose Estimated Reading Time: 6 mins.
This 4 CD set does a great job in covering the best years of ELP and is a great retro-spective on their musical contributions. I am not really a big fan of the box sets to be honest and generally prefer the individual albums, but "Return Of The Manticore" does such a great job that it works very well for me. A great collection and coverage/5.
In Return of the Manticore, you get four cds spanning the recording career of Emerson, Lake and Palmer from their debut up to when this set was released in the 90's. The first cd has some excellent reworks of each members past hits before they joined ELP, plus an excellent version of Touch and Go from the ELPowell album but with Palmer on drums.
