Losing our virginity
Losing our virginity (1973-1977)

Per celebrare il 40° anniversario dell’etichetta Virgin, una delle più produttive e innovative case discografiche di tutti i tempi, è stato prodotto un nuovo album di 3 CD con i più  creativi esponenti dei primi 4 anni di attività.
“Losing Our Virginity” onora il primo album mai pubblicato, Tubular Bells (1973), e continua con i più importanti artisti e brani del periodo pre-punk. In quei primi 4 anni la Virgin ha ospitato la maggior parte dei pionieri della musica progressive ed è stata la casa di molti artisti di grande talento degli anni ’70. Partendo da Krautrock ed il prog, passando per avant-rock e arrivando al pionieristico synth-rock, “Losing Our Virginity” è un meraviglioso viaggio durante la nascita di una legenda.
