Noah Wilson One of the most majestic albums of all-time. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this was being released on vinyl for the first time. I couldn't be happier. Favorite track: G-Lombardi Magic Rollercoasters.

Introduction 00:57
Instrumental
2.
Untied balloons of laughs Burst and release sounds high Then fade away Oh, music flows and I know Someday I'll be somewhere (else) To cast a new spell Just to be safe In a small bell Then I'll fall in a lake filled with snow and candies And I'll find it queer Then I'll jump on a carpet of leaves and beyond top of trees I'll find White rails to moon
3.
Saltamontes 03:12
Millions shoes on a new green path The frogs stroll in the street When the storm has passed away Stars and moons and sea and sun Don't fear to fail Life won't wait for you! Dancing for a day Singing in the rain Happiness and cakes Chocolate words to say Dreams!!! Fireflies on water Glitter together The more the better Everyone's awake
4.
From precious waterlines A wizard voice through all night If it's true , come to my dance Wonder why dreaming moon dance Sea, may we have fun We call it moon dance in town If it's true, come to my dance Wonderful rain, let grace fall (on) moon dance You know, we call it moon dance!
5.
Hollow lane, blooming stars Crystalline line of horizon Echoed sounds coming from space There are milky roads Ropes to climb up to the top of Curly clouds rolling gently And it isn't late to whistle a new tune And it isn't late to paint doors and white rooms Oh, I've singable dreams Oh, I've crumbs of some petty bright days Hollow lane , blooming stars Crystalline line of horizon Echoed sounds coming from space And it isn't late to whistle a new tune And it isn't late to paint doors and white rooms Oh, I've singable dreams Oh, I've crumbs of bright days And it isn't late to whistle a new tune And it isn't late to paint doors and white rooms Oh, I've singable dreams Oh, I've crumbs of some petty bright day
6.
Don't try To bring back on the ground My train of clouds I'll take A rest in a blue shell Bubbles of breath I'll run on A winding staircase To get out Of greyness and shade Gleaming light On my fingertip I design a ship With a see through sail
7.
Spring around us Winter left us on a bridge Made of questions and faith Light wind rises on my way Spring around us Dreams contain what we'd be Dreams contain all the truth Travelling in space with tender sounds Millions stars 're floating round And walking on the moon We're waiting for the blue
8.
In a fancied place Where the words don't hurt Everything we touch is a pearl Don't let me cry Drowing back now Don't let me cry Enfold me Don't let me cry Easy distance Don't let me cry Enfold me Tell me that we'll build Castles of sand Tell me that we'll have A silent talk Convince me that love is surprise Don't let me cry
9.
Marsico 02:46
Wolf's eyes envious of the sun Wolf is staring at my inside But finding in this sunchild My bright light it bounced away We turn 'round the wood of my sunchild And turning we make a whirl of dust And turning we make a whirl of bright stardust tonight
10.
Water is trembling Overturned fountains Sensible trails of scent Water is trembling Overturned fountains Sensible trails of scent Kind are your eyes and your voice Kind is the hiding sun Kind are your eyes and your voice Kind is your pace and the rain Mirrors your marks in the sky
11.
When the seafoam flushes your feet When the mist will begin to lift When you'll meet a flurry of wind Just fly a kite Be patient It will lie down on planets and satellites Cherishing dreams Revolving round the flaring sun Then burning like a firework So high
12.
Shooting is the sound Of your steps caressing the ground You're made of air My hope lead bare Brightness rises 'round you Dance for me!!! Look beyond the leaves There are sparkles of sincerity A sugar bed never be sad Rainbows twines 'round you Dance with me We're made of air Never be scared
13.
Whales in a tea cup Whales in a bath Nonsense rhyme, candyfloss Whales in a tea cup Whales in a bat Nonsense rhyme, row me across Going where the moon Dresses the vessels Going where the dawn Thaws defensive films of ice, of ice We ride on glazy waves with jade veins
14.
Marble hands You know I want oppose If you steal from me My paper crown Your silky words Will be my nest
15.
Instrumental
16.
Walking in the lively night it quickens Steps and thoughts And the gates are open Walking with a nameless face on noisy narrow roads And you gather some smiles Taking flight Throw the dice and hope Balance not to fall But just love can save us
17.
Hazy moon Dives into pale blue sky And nothing moves on But keeps still and mild Wind deadens the sounds Then falls Wide eyes Far off

"25th ELEFANT RECORDS ANNIVERSARY" COLLECTION [Issue 020 of 025]

We are really enjoying this process of looking back and recovering some of the albums that we have released at Elefant during our first 25 years as an independent label. Giorgio Tuma has been one of those artists that we have handled with special care. His music, so far from the stereotypes of the latest music trends, hides a true genius who is inspired, evocative, and has a psychedelic, melancholic, elegant pop spirit. A musical goldsmith.

That’s why we are so happy to be able to re-release, for the first time on vinyl, his first album with Elefant (second in his discography), “My Vocalese Fun Fair”. It is a delicious album, exquisitely arranged, where the psychedelia, the lounge music and the Brazilian samba all join hands to make up a banquet of an album. It’s because of all of those influences, that let us catch a glimpse of other small ingredients that make the final result richer, like the soul on “Coney Island Memories”, the funk-pop on “Marsico”, the baroque folk of “Musical Express” or the northern soul of “Saltamontes”. That is the definition of banquet that Giorgio Tuma proposed on that album: dishes full of all the ingredients imaginable, mixed with elegance, color, sometimes exoticism, sophistication, sometimes seriousness, but always achieving excellent results. Like “…And Three Parasol Stars”, “Let’s Make The Stevens Cake!!!”, “Astroland By Bus”… And ultimately that feeling of melancholy that stays with you after such a feast – sweet, sad, unrepeatable, unforgettable…

This electric blue vinyl will be released as a 300-copy, numbered, limited edition and it will have two extra songs for the digital version that were not included on the original LP (which will also be available for download as MP3 included with the vinyl). “Flying Bicycles To Reykjavik” is pop, jazz and soul, one of the most agile songs that forms a part of this fantastic collection of songs. “Innocent Thoughts Fluorescent Words” is a silent but luminous goodbye. Petit fours? There are no small dishes when we are talking about Giorgio Tuma’s banquets. Every last detail counts, used completely, enjoyed to the last drop. It’s a way of living made into sound.
