Pandora - Sprouts of Life coverFrom the press release:

"Our latest album Ten Years Like In A Magic Dream… included a tribute to the world of progressive and to those musicians we've grown up with, such as Keith Emerson and Greg Lake. Greg's death occurred a few days after the release of our new single, a remake of the amazing ELP's Lucky Man, dedicated to Emerson Lake & Palmer. So we have decided to search for old Pandora tracks to release a benefit album: all the proceeds will be donated to LILT for cancer research".

After Greg Lake's passing, who was recently homaged in new album, Pandora releases a digital benefit-album with unreleased tracks and rarities. This EP is called Sprouts Of Life, Pandora’s Music For The Research On Cancer. Its profit will be entirely donated to LILT (Italian League for Cancer Research), in order to purchase a breast ultrasound machine. Sprouts Of Life: Pandora for the Research on Cancer is available only on digital format on BandCamp, iTunes (soon on GooglePlay too), purchasable only fully, Price 2.99 EUR.
