RIYL: Rare Italian library music
Label: Sonor Music Editions
Call it a white whale. Call it a holy grail. Widely known among hardcore vinyl collectors as one of the best examples of rare library music, Alessandro Alessandroni’s self-titled 1971 full-length, better known as the Farfalla album, is next to impossible to find in its original form. And if you do find it? You’re gonna pay ungodly amounts for it. Even the 2015 reissue goes for $100+. Enter Sonor Music Editions, taking a stab at a third reissue limited to just 500 copies. If you enjoy that subtly psychedelic, easy listening stuff from countries far far away, this one needs to be in your collection.
Rappcats has only 50 copies of this reissue in the states, so if you’re even slightly curious, now’s the time. If you’re stateside and you end up missing the opportunity to buy these domestically, head on over to Sonor Music Editions’ Bandcamp page HERE to grab one. Keep in mind the international shipping difference. Listen to some of the tracks below.
