70's RPI WANT LIST. 1.

The Italian progressive rock of the 1970s is a rich music, with a thousand faces. Yet, despite what already exists, significant reissues are missing. The labels know them certainly, but are reluctant to release new CDs for fear of not succeeding at selling them.
This is why I created this poll, to show that a sufficient number of RPI lovers is waiting for those reissues and would be ready to buy them.
The purpose of this short and varied (I hope) list of rare albums is not to designate who is the best here, but to accumulate a sufficient number of votes to encourage labels to give a second life to this music. Tongue

Pierre, can we only vote for one? You know me, I'd support/purchase all four of them, so I'd be happy to see any of them.

What one are you going to vote for yourself, Pierre? Because if we can only choose one, I'll support that. You've shown time and time again in the Italian Den that you have exquisite taste in RPI albums, so I trust your judgement

Gramigna for me, Pierre! That track is wonderful!

But as I mentioned, I endorse all these suggestions!

Excellent choice, Michael. The whole album s wonderfull.
 
Gramigna: Gran disordine sotto il cielo (1977)
This very rare album is the only one published by the R.I.O.-like octet Gramigna. The style is quite original, some sort of very melodic chamber-rock with a distinct Italian feeling which makes it airy and snappy. The important role of reeds and some askance instrumental lines could remind the first Henry Cow LP.
The lyrics are refinate, but playful; the verses are often perfect endecasyllabes. The first three tracks are very freely inspired by Alice Adventures in Wonderland. Most of the other songs draw part of their inspiration from popular folklore or childish attitudes, using it as a metaphore for social issues.

MUTANT SOUNDS
This stunning and very obscure Italian avant-gardish prog wonder carries whiffs of all sorts of vital left field musical strains. There's a strong simpatico here with Czech dissident rock of the period ala The Plastic People and MCH Band. Several other things come to mind here as well, from the odd combination of angularity and airiness here that touches on the sound of the French Zeuhl band Uppsala, to things more reflective of musical attitudes in their home country, with some of the moves here distinctly mirroring the developments of their Italian contemporaries in Picchio Dal Pozzo, (particularly their later and more R.I.O.-ish material), though with all the endless whirligig intricacy of the arrangements here, this stuff really does also come remarkably close a times to the sound of 90's Japanese avant proggers Tipographica. An essential piece of the puzzle in sorting out the radical legacy of Italian rock of that era.

As I told you before I really enjoyed Orchestra Njervudarov (how do you pronounce that???) . I investigated them further more and I like everything I heard, so this is my vote.
 
Gramigna also sounds good, I remember them from the den. And I Boom is another thing I might like.

Thanks for your vote, Sag. A few hundreds more and maybe BTF will open his eyes on those sleepy gems. Geek

I'm Italian but I've never heard any of those bands, even mentioning.

It makes no sense the companies holding onto the rights of albums like this. All that happens is either people don't get to hear them, or they resort to dodgy downloads passed around just to get to hear them...

Besides, wouldn't it be better for these companies to, you know, make SOME money off them, as opposed to NO money off them at all?

^But if very few people buys the album those companies will lose money.

Surely they would only need to run off a couple of hundred copies? It might take a little while to sell through them all, but eventually I have no doubt they'd be gone and sought after like a lot of those 90's/early 2000 releases are now! :)

I think the question is this one : If we could transform the one or two hundreds upcoming votes in closed preorders,      maybe we could interest labels Wink
