5 stars Italian group formed in the early 70s from the merger between two failed bands in the region of Tuscany. Then formed a quintet led by keyboardist and drummer Jimmy Santerini and Luciano House that in this case, House played only 12-string guitar and helped on vocals.

The band had its peak in 1971 when they signed with the Italian subsidiary of RCA Records to release an album that was finished only after some time. Also in that year, the band played in festivals in their hometown, Viareggio and still came to opening for Led Zeppelin in Rome for thousands of people.

In 1972 the band lost two principal members being replaced by excellent Antonio Favilla keyboardist and flutist / sax Loriano Berti, who left the band shortly after the release of this album in question.

With all these strange lineup changes over the short period of its legth, the band managed to maintain an essential quality in relation to the technique of their musicians with perfect vocal harmony.

The record is composed of only five but fabulous tracks, being the first a true gem worthy of what we know as Italian Progressive Rock. The track of almost 19 minutes, gives its name to the record and is conducted with extreme perfection by Berti with beautiful flute passages throughout its course. At times it is noticed a distinct similarity to the style of Ian Anderson playing his lead instrument but not forgetting the soft touch that only the Italian Progressive Rock can offer to the most discerning ears.

The second part of the album is composed of smaller tracks with very expressive vocals, giving more emphasis on the passages of acustic and eelctric guitars, mingling the tender Moog solos followed by a shy, but beautiful Hammond Organ sound.
