    I normally shop here:

    Of course sometimes you need to buy from the band itself. Therefore I add Facebook links on my occasional look out lists.

    For your side of the great Pond it might be a better idea to look out for the usual US Vendors. Sorry but I have no idea About
    ressources in Canada.
    Thanks for this information. I must say I'm appreciative of such comprehensive and valuable input on the Italian prog scene you devote your shared expertise on. Much noted!

    ^ That was very good.
    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    Shipping from the US is similar to shipping from Europe if you live in Canada. I just checked BTF.IT and the rate for 9 CDs is about what I'd pay from the US.

    I suspect your best bet for Italian would be Greg Walker at http://synphonicmusic.com/
    Greg has oodles of Italian and he ships from Utah. A few times a year I buy 8-12 cd's from Greg. The shipping for the entire batch costs me $5~. I live in Texas.

    This thread is worthy for the occasional great discovery.

    In the spotlight-Quasar Lux Symphoniae
    QLS's history is varied and colorful. QLS released their first album in 1977. QLS released at least one album every decade since then.

    Influenced by opera. Male and female singers. Symphonic to classical. At their best, they combine prog and classical music seamlessly.

    QLS's 70s and 80s material is their weakest in my opinion. Too much rock, not enough prog. However, during the nineties QLS released two operatic concept albums. The first "Abraham - One Act Rock Opera" tells the Old Testament Abraham story and the second 90s album " The Enlightening March of the Argonaut tracks Robert Scott's ill-fate South Pole exhibition. The 90's albums are reminiscent of Enid in their symphonic glory and worth checking out. ( As long as the guitarist is not singing) The woman's voice is heaven. The other male vocals are fine. By the time QLs reached 2009's "Synopsis", they'd fixed the guitarist singer problem.

    The 18 members of the Italy based band Ainur are releasing a Tolkien based rock opera. Not typical RPI.
