4 stars Locanda delle fate (i.e. 'the fairy's inn') certainly is Italy's best kept secret, as far as seventies prog is concerned. Just one record published by a major label but at the wrong time, in 1977, "Forse le lucciole non si amano piů" (i.e. 'Perhaps the fireflies don't love each other anymore') and the band quickly disappeared in the mist of oblivion. Yes, there was a second album ("Homo Homini Lupus") released in 1999 after a reunion of the band but? forget it! The San Remo label Mellow records released a live record in 1977 featuring material from the first work but it was just a testimony for collectors because of its poor sound. So this new opus, a live record (a 2010 concert in Milan) featuring the whole "Forse" record is welcome. If, as I said you don't know the band, imagine a kind of a lighter Banco: lighter vocals (but still a great singer, Leonardo Sasso, in the way of Francesco DiGiacomo), lighter music but still symphonic and keyboards dominated. I forgot beautiful flute parts. This time, this live document shows a great sound and a band in full bloom: the interpretation is superb (the full first album except one short song, a bonus track in fact called 'New York') and we have great supplements, I mean some new musical developments. Yes, the fans will be delighted. I was.
