SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
1 stars Surprisingly Il Cerchio d'Oro would reform in 2006 and the first signs of their reincarnation would be revealed in 2005, when a second archival album was released in vinyl format on Psych-Out Records under the title ''La quadratura del cerchio''.This compilation contains mostly covers by famous Italian Prog bands along with some demo cuts from the band's early years.

Side A is split between covers of Le Orme and original compositions both with the early 3-piece and later 5-piece line up of the band.Executionally the band stands at a good level, but the really poor recording quality of these tapes makes the listening almost unbearable.The original material comes mostly in a Symphonic/Psychedelic Rock style close to HUNKA MUNKA or GLI ALLUMINOGENI with strong organ passages and obscure synth workouts along the deep bass work, that could have sounded really decent if their sound was at least mediocre.The Le Orme covers are rather mediocre and add nothing innovative to the band's repertoire.The B side is exclusively covered by three pieces of The Trip, Le Orme and New Trolls respectively, delivered by Il Cerchio d'Oro at the time when they were still a trio.With mainly instrumental work on the forefront, the band shows respect to the original executions, but the uneven mix and poor sound prevent the listener from enjoying this material as well.From the three, propably The Trip's ''Little Jane'' seems the best with its early-70's charming Psychedelic Rock style.

This is certainly the least interesting recording related to Il Cerchio d'Oro.Bad-sounding and rather uninspirational work, due to the poor quality of the tapes and the limited original material.Avoid it and spend your money in a more recommended work by the band.
