SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Well, well, well. This a wonderful manifesto for the RPI team and a compilation that impressed me at the very first look to the (fabulous) track list!

No Banco, Le Orme or PFM here. And for this reason a must have for all who want to have a listen to the most obscure and unknown italian bands and artists of the seventies.

16 songs for 16 bands and artists covering the period 1971-1975, chronologically. There is not jazz rock here, neither RIO. Symphonic mainly with some classical inspired bands and sparse folk touches.

The cd opens with Osanna and their "Intruduzione". Then Delirium with the memorable "Dolce Acqua" New Trolls with "1st Tempo - Allegro".

From fourth song on, many surprises for the italian prog aficionados: Garybaldi and their first single "Marta Helmut". Then Il Paese dei Balocchi, Gli Alluminogeni with the wonderful sixties-like-symphonic with great acoustic and electric guitars "Scolopendra", the weird and exciting Raccomandata Ricevuta di Ritorno.

I Califfi with "Campane" (Bells) is one of the highest peaks of the compilation. I didn't heard that song before! Wonderful music with tons of keyboards, moog and synth withthe addition of bells and other spectacular colours. This is taken from "Fiore di Cemento", the only prog record ever released by the band in a whole-pop career.

Triade, Ricordi d'Infanzia and Tito Schipa jr with an extract taken from his "Orfeo 9", one of the first opera rock in Italy. Uno and Samadhi follow and then, Procession, Cittą Frontale and Bambibanda e Melodie, these last recently added to the site.

All in all, it's a hard work to describe every single track. The best thing to do is to recommend you to buy the compilation. An excellent one, this time, an useful one for sure!

Warning! The italian prog scene (classic from the seventies and modern) is way more big than what this compilation shows...

5 stars A cheap and easy review if I've ever had one...

A fabulous compiliation.. best I've seen so far. A gem is the unreleased song by I Garybaldi, which gets regular rotation.. at very loud volumes.

for the forum 5 stars.... great selection of songs and artists. If you are interested in getting into RPI, or wanting to explore past the big three.... Get this album. A mix of the whole range of RPI. Highly recommended. Bought two albums based on songs I hadn't heard.. and loved the albums.

that was easy...

4 stars Before I bought this compilation I had no idea such a thing as Italian prog existed. Actually, I was very doubful that Italy produced anything worth listening to since Vivaldi. Well, I'm glad to report that I was wrong. This compilation is altogether quite enjoyable and features some fantastic ... (read more)
