Along with Museo Rosenbach, Celeste were born from the ashes of the legendary Il Sistema.
Formed by drummer Ciro Perrino and sax player Leonardo Lagorio (who had played with Museo Rosenbach in their early days) this four piece went in a totally different direction from their beginnings, playing a mostly acoustic, dreamy and delicate prog.
Their first album, “Celeste”, also known as “Principe di un giorno”, was released in 1976, but the tracks had been composed in 1973 and recorded in 1974. It contains seven tracks, with pastoral lyrics and a style not far from the softer side of early King Crimson.
Nowadays it is considered as one of the best Italian prog records ever.
Very rare in its original pressing, “Principe di un giorno” is finally reissued in a heavy 180gr. black Vinyl.
