The 'Stairway To Escher' album by Italian '70s band Bauhaus was released in 2002 on the Akarma label. This previously unvailable collection features seven tracks from the iconic band, recorded live in Rome in 1974. Formed in 1973 by Rino Sangiorgio, Paolo Damiani and Luigi Calabrò (three quarters of the Italian '70s progressive rock band Buon Vecchio Charlie). Like BVC, Bauhaus was also in the progressive rock vein, but with much more pronounced jazz influences (in the style of Soft Machine) and thanks to the extreme technical proficiency of the musicians (all much sought after session men), they were named "best new Italian band" at the 1974 Villa Pamphili music festival. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl in original pasted hardboard gatefold sleeve.
