5 stars Recently I could watch my one shot loved band Maxophone on DVD "From Cocoon to Butterfly". It presents 4 tracks studio performances recorded in 1975 with perfect image and sound production. Wish I these forgotten heroes had a long discography...(as Locanda delle Fate, Il Balleto di Bronzo, Racomandata Ricevuta Ritorno, Semiramis, Rusticelli Bordini and most of that one shot italian bands )... But let me tell you about one of my vinyl collection prides : the 1975 english version of Maxophone (from PAUSA label ) with its fantastic fold open cover. Of course I also have the italian sung version on cd. Generally I use to prefer native languange for non english speaking bands. For example I love hungarian singing in East "Husg" and "Jatekok"; the polish singing in all SBB albuns; the spanish singing in BUBU "anabelas"; I prefer a million times the italian version of Le Orme "Felona e Sorona" than the english one (even if the lyrics are signed for not less than VDGGs Peter Hammill). But in Maxophone case, I love both english and italian lyrics version. To my ears Maxophone in english is so convincing as Acqua Fragile "Mass Media Stars" if you permit me to compare. Coming back to the DVD, what a hapiness to see nowadays all band members in nice interviews and joined to perforn "Mercanti di pazzie", really a fantastic revival of the unrecognized heroes. Id like to put more reviews at progarchives as I did at the time of the pioneer reviews site PROGNET (do you remember ?). But I have a backbone problem and must avoid typing. I thank Erik and all you progheads for supporting this wonderfully administrated site.
