Twenty years ago, what is probably still the best collection of music by Piero Umiliani, "Musicaelettronica", was released on Easy Tempo (in our opinion, the finest Italian soundtrack label ever). The album, curated by Rocco Pandiani, focussed on the astonishing creative mastery with which Umiliani played around in his Sound Work Shop studio, where he had all kinds of analog machines toexperiment with.Not only did albums like "Musicaelettronica" inspire the very existence of Four Flies Records, but our new Umiliani release, L'Uomo Elettronico, follows on precisely from where "Musicaelettronica" left off. While Pandiani's selection provided an insight into the playful, lighter side of Umiliani's electronic music, our release explores it's introspective, esoteric side.Thanks to unwavering support from the Umiliani family, who keeps granting us access to the Maestro's archives, we have been able to continue a journey we started three years ago with Studio Umiliani, this time unearthing some stunning electronic, cosmic pieces characterized by atmospheric vibes andcarefully arranged sounds and sequences. Once again Umiliani emerges as a tireless, versatile composer whose output went well beyond 'Mah Nà Mah Nà', the hugely popular song that made him eternally famous.The idea behind the album is to view Umiliani's electronic output as the work of a scientist of some sort - a chemist or master craftsman who created magic in his laboratory or workshop. There is a dreamy, ambient quality at work here: the Maestro builds hypnotic, minimalist sonic landscapes through layers of sharp synths, including Moog, Arp, and VCS3. This music could fit equally well in a sci-fi documentary, a post-apocalyptic film, a television report on climate change, or a journey through outer space.L'Uomo Elettronico features 3 previously unreleased tracks, as well as rarities and hidden gems, all composed between 1972 and 1983 and remastered from the original analog tapes.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.
