We brought you Rialzu, Skryvania, Cheval Fou, and now it’s time for the first vinyl reissue of Alpha Centauri’s diamond: Alpha Centaury. Originally privately released in a limited pressing of 300 copies in 1976, and equally hard-to-find as the aforementioned titles, this gem is shrouded in mystery, for the simple reason that Alpha Centauri didn’t even pursue publicity during their short-lived existence. This is an album that marries both psychedelia and prog, in a delicately eerie and melancholically tempestuous way. A sheer ear-pampering experience that sits as comfortably on your cochlea as suffusing the darkest moments of Mémoriance with the haunted passages of Dickens’ Royal Incarnation on the empty Downer street of Common People and Zerfas, interspersed with the guitar virtuosity of Bruno Névez. This long-in-the-making edition is available in only 300 hand-numbered copies (150 on black and 150 on marble vinyl), extenuatingly remastered for your maximum audio pleasure by the sound-meister Gustavo Bolasini, with a 2-page insert including, at last, a proper biography of this shooting-star.
