Thought this might be of interest to the Italian horror cinemaphiles among us:

That's interesting and cute. Nice to hear those old horror rockers do such a venture, SUSPIRA is worth the ticket alone.

Yeah, I do hope they add another performance to the one that sold out in LA.

I just secured tickets to the Cleveland show for this coming December. Not only do I get to see Goblin, but Zombi is also going to be there. I'm so happy they could bring this tour to a venue close to me. Tickets were very reasonably priced too.

I was so excited I made a double post.

Anyone here catch the New York City gigs? My wife & I were at the one at Webster Hall on Monday.

So now I can die a happy man.

They were fabulous! They did stuff from every phase of their four-decade career, included all the great numbers, left out nothing essential. They sounded great and they looked like they were having a great time as well. I guess they've never toured in the US because they thought that nobody really knew them here. But they sold out three NYC gigs really fast, and Marge & I both had the impression that they were truly touched at the raucous affection of the crowd. They have long been legends in their own little genre-drenched corner of the musical universe, and they may have been surprised to discover that the corner is bigger than they'd thought. I was a little surprised myself at how young the crowd was--lotsa people in their thirties, even though Goblin were hot for about five years in the 1970s.

Marge loved it too, very impressed by their totally original sound, excellent musicianship and their hard-driving energy.

With luck this tour will be so successful that they'll do it again soon.
I'd be interested to hear what other people who've caught them on this tour think.

Gary

Thanks for sharing your experience here. I'm glad to hear they sound good live. I have to wait until December, but I'll be sure to share my experiences as well.

Did they play Suspiria and Deep Red?

They did indeed. Those were true high points of the show.

Goblin is one of those groups that I've always felt I should get into, but it seemed like it would be too much grief to track all their stuff down (that's The Curse Of The Completist).
Maybe it's time to change that before CD's friggin' disappear and I have one less reason to live.

Octoberman, if you want an affordable way to get acquainted with Goblin I would suggest getting "the awakening" boxset, it features 6 of their essential albums and all of them are the expanded versions. Profondo Rosso has been expanded further to 2 CDs, but IMO the already expanded program included in this set is more than enough. Only possible drawbacks is the CDs are housed in cardboard sleeves matching the vinyl artwork, but the boxset is sturdy and it's a nice concept. Also the booklet is not that extensive, but most of these releases don't feature english liner notes anyway.

Thank for that, Francis. I'm going to talk to my import guy and see what he can track down for me.
In the meantime, are there any compilations that offer a fair cross-section of their output?

There have been quite a few compilation albums they put out with different volumes etc., I would say this one is the most comprehensive:

It's funny you would post that. We were both looking at the same thing at the same time. I figured that Discogs, like so many other times, would be the logical starting place to look for such things.

Discogs is great! My brother turned me on to it and I've managed to sell some vinyl as well as find great deals on certain titles. Though for soundtracks it is not as extensive, but it seems to be catching on.

Agreed.
I've been using it for a few years and I find that it's the most useful (for me, anyway) in providing the details of particular pressings. These days armchair audiophiles like me find that older pressings tend to sound superior to recent ones. Dynamic range seems to be clipped and compressed to an unacceptable degree.
