After combing the PA database (and a book called, "The Progressive Rock Files") the past 3 or 4 years for prospects, I now have an interesting collection of 1973/74 albums by what I call "lesser known" prog bands.  I'm wondering how many other PA members have discovered these obscure albums as well?

This is a multiple choice poll, so please feel free to vote for all your favorites and tell us how you discovered them, etc... Wink

Fruup of the ones I know from this list. Some I never heard of, so it will be nice to check them out.

Know about a third of these. Of the ones I do know, I'd probably rank them as follows:

Osanna > Quarteto 1111 > Quella Vecchia Locanda > Campo Di Marte > Cavern > Axis > Garybaldi > Pierrot Lunaire

I'd consider all of these 3-5 star albums; Pierrot Lunaire is probably the only one I don't really care for. Even though Palepoli is my favourite, I voted for Quarteto 1111, though, as I imagine Osanna will rack up a lot of votes pretty quickly.

Trace.  I just posted a thread in regards to ELP fans.    Trace,  very similar in sound as well as Ekseption formed by frontman Rick Van Der Linden

Multiple voting was not enabled, but no need to in my oponion, one can list all one's favourites in a post.

I voted for Jean Cohen-Solal's Captain Tarthopom, but also would choose Pierrot Lunaire's Pierrot Lunaire (my favourite PL is Gudrun), Osanna's Palepoli, and the Quarteto 1111.

Palepoli!
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Just noticed Palepoli was a 1972 not 1973 release...sorry about that.  And I apparently forgot to make the poll multiple choice...all fixed now.  That's what I get for creating a poll first thing in the morning Embarrassed

Anyway, I've listened to all of these at least 3 or 4 times and have formed some pretty solid opinions.  The only ones I'm not too crazy about are Axis, Vindication, Quella Vecchia Locanda, Astrolabio & Lift...they're not bad, they just seem a step down from the others.  My favorites in no specific order are...

Fruup
Esperanto
Captain Tarthopom
Mona Lisa
Spektakel
Hora Nata

Of these, I think Fruup, Esperanto and Hora Nata could really develop into 5 star albums for me with repeated listening.  Last but not least, my absolute #1 is Quarteto 1111!  My fellow Portuguese countryman Meltdowner turned me on to this album last year and was he ever on target!  The recording quality is a bit rough, but it's absolutely drenched in mellotron, consists of a single song broken up into 2 album sides (apparently a prog requirement in 1973 :-) and the vocals of Jose Cid remind me a lot of a Portuguese version of Christian DeCamps from Ange.  Fantástico, maravilhoso, incrível, eu amo ele!

From the list, it has to be Palepoli. Love this album so much.

I own the Italian ones, however I've only heard of 2 of the others.  Pretty obscure stuff for sure.

I discovered the Italian bands on Prog Archives.  I've been into Goblin for decades because of the Argento connection,  then I started buying the top rated Italian albums off progarchives and now I'm about 75 Italian Prog albums in.

Pierrot too. That first album has an undefinable charm.
