3 stars Beautiful, bucolic RPI with some adventure

Claudio Fucci's lone solo album, released in 1974, is a very pleasant trip dominated by the singer/songwriter style. The mood is definitely relaxed, with few upbeat moments. However, the songwriting is absolutely gorgeous, even in the simpler passages. There really is not an unpleasant or even dull moment on the album. The focus is acoustic guitar, with some songs featuring little more than acoustic guitar and nice vocal arrangements. However, on other songs there is a full ensemble, including beautiful keyboards/mellotron.

The track with the highest prog quotient is "Viaggia La Speranza," which creates a mysterious mood with a nice groove in the bass and drums. There are strummed acoustic guitars, punctuated by electric guitar solos, all played on a keyboard/mellotron soundscape. This is the longest track on the album and is my personal favorite. Other favorites of mine are the exclusively acoustic "Notte" and the slightly more upbeat "Tutto Cio Che Hai."

Overall, this is a very nice album, still obtainable, and a great example of the singer/songwriter style of RPI. Although not as rock-related as Fucci's later work with LE MANI, this is a fine work and easily deserves three stars.
