Discography?[edit]

Whilst I do appreciate the effort that was put into writing together a history of the band, shouldn't there be at least a short list of their major works? Also I don't think there is any mention of the group Libra, which included some Goblin members and yielded the soundtrack for Mario Bava's 1977 Shock (aka Beyond the Door II) 81.240.248.150 14:29, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Italian pronunciation[edit]

The way Italians say it should be added.
I happened to go shopping for Goblin LPs in Italy in 1983, and no one knew which group I was talking about.
That is because I was pronouncing the name like "goblin", the English vocabulary word.
Italians do not say it like that.
They pronounce it goh-BLEEN, with a long "O" and the stress on the second syllable.
Eventually a friendly shop owner figured out who I meant, and was then happy to tell me that they did not have any.
Italian progressive LPs were impossible to find in Italy in those days. Their production runs were smaller than what was normal in North America; there were no surplus copies sitting in a bin for years, and no "cutouts" of the US kind.
New or used, you couldn't find it in Italy.

International releases[edit]

It might be helpful to know which of their albums were domestic outside of Italy. Presumably Dawn of the Dead had a US release?
Both Roller and Suspiria were released in Canada. Varlaam (talk) 19:37, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
