^ It's hard to pick a top ten but I agree it's one of the best.

After finally getting into Dolce Acqua (which was easy) I also got their second album Lo Scemo E Il Villaggio, after two spins it sounds pretty good, especially the first half. Do you know that one Pierre?

Excellent review by Todd as that is good news to hear of Latte's latest work of that masterpiece.  I listened to the original one yesterday on Good Friday.  Quite reflective moment for me.
 
On that note, Happy Easter to all the den mates!


And to you as well. Also, I've heard a ton of great things about Delirium. A band that I certainly need to check out as well.
Always happy to take some pointers.

Nice little history lesson too! Thanks a bunch. Sounds intriguing as well as a strong comeback!
Love it when bands return in epic fashion.

No. But Maybe eventually they would.

Well of course I bought that one Jim! Maxophone's album is my all time favorite Italian album. This live show is good but can't really top the studio version since it lacks all the wind instruments, but nice to see they are in good shape.
In that video you posted I like how they moved the ending part to the beginning, very nicely done.

Never been my favorite band but this live disc should be a must for Maxophone fans.  Looks nice.


Blessed Easter to you and yours...

Great review, Todd, I've got that version on the way as well, along with a jam packed package from Greg Walker....and I'm sure his next newsletter update is due any day now!

Jim/AEP, I adore that most recent Delirium album as well, in fact it was the very first album of theirs I bought! I then quickly raced backwards and bought all their earlier ones. You can actually get a double CD collection called `Delirium '71-'75' ' that compiles their complete early three albums as well as several singles/B-sides. Their debut album has become very special to me, I reviewed it not too long ago. If I'm feeling uninspired and can't settle on an album to listen to, I fall back on that one most times and still love it to bits

Jim, I always think of you when I listen to the 1972 album, knowing how much you love it. I know you'd love this one, too.

And the subject couldn't be grander!! Smile Hug

^ Mine too, Pierre. One of the 5 star masterpieces! It is Greg Walker's favorite album of all time, incidentally.

Some good posts since the last time I logged in, enjoyed The H's  Il Tempio delle Clessidre soothing track and Latte Miele Thumbs Up.  Have not had a chance yet to check out Pierre's Wara link yet, sounds promising!
 
Good to see our lady Kati in the house again with a fine selection!
 
Right now I am in Eargasm delight, went on a minor splurge today with Delirium's Il nome del vento, what a special blend of instruments with a great jazz flavor, excellent!  Read a view reviews of it while listening, Jim's review smacked it out of the ballpark, great one. As well as Andrea's review!
 
Also got this lovely album today, although I have not heard much in the den regarding Hostsonaten, very good intrumental!

Well as I already said, anyone who loves Biglietto Per L'inferno can't go wrong with the Biglietto Per L'inferno.folk album. I usually don't like to listen to modern versions of old songs when they are exactly the same, but here the instrumentation is different (much more varied) so it sounds completely new and fresh. Beautiful stuff!

Hi Kati!  Nice to see you again....It isn't often that lovely women are dedicating songs to an old crab like myself....so I queued this song up immediately!  Big smile I listen here in my den hiding from the chilly winds howling in Minnesota.  Spring my ass.  It's cold out there! 

Thank you for the warm Biglietto track, an album that was one of the earliest I heard during my initial RPI binge-drinking session many years back.  When I hear those albums again it is very sweet memories indeed!

Grazie Kati!!!  Hug
Blessed Easter to you and yours...
