3 stars GARYBALDI were actually the same band with ''Gleemen'',a Henrix-inspired rock group from Genova,formed in 1965 and led by guitarist Bambi Fossati.In 1971 they renamed themselves to GARYBALDI,following a slight turn of their style.They debuted in 1972 with ''Nuda'',an album ballanced between Hendrix-like psychedelic rock and the growing progressive rock sound in Italy.The first side of the LP contained four straight-rock tracks with psychedelic guitars and almost none prog leanings,not unlike their style played during their ''Gleemen''-era...but side B contains only one track,the beautiful epic ''Moretto da Brescia '',clocking at 20 min. and being a great example of italian progressive rock.Here harsh guitar passages change into ethereal instrumental soundscapes,strong melodies are supported by superb Hammond organ parts and bluesy guitars are followed by classical piano themes and amazing vocals.It's one of the albums,which a single track makes them worth buying.Allow yourself to taste this high-class piece of music.
