Photos Of Ghosts is a music studio album recording by PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI (PFM) (Rock Progressivo Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Surprisingly enough this album was my introduction to Premiata Forneria Marconi! At the time I knew nothing about the band nor the material that this compilation had to offer so I explored it with great enthusiasm and an open mind.

Photos of Ghosts is ostensibly an English adaptation of the band's second album, Per un amico, but it's really an entirely different beast. The lyrics were written from scratch, not translated from Italian, and there are two additional cuts: a new recording of "E' festa" from PFM's debut, here dubbed "Celebration," and a brand-new tune, "Old Rain," a languid acoustic instrumental on which Mauro Pagani's jazzy flute and violin come to the fore.

Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM) (translation: Award-winning Marconi Bakery) is an Italian progressive rock band founded in 1970 and which continues to the present day. They were the first Italian group to have success internationally. The group recorded five albums with English lyrics between 1973 and 1977. During this period they entered both the British and American charts.
