2 stars The strength of Biglietto per l'Inferno was in their live performances. It's a pity that the only live recording of this band lacks so much in sound quality. Even the remastering couldn't fix the poor quality of the source. The concert was performed and recorded in Lecco (Italy) on 9th May 1974 with poor technical means and, as you can read in the booklet, "this is not an experience dedicated to sound purists, but a great time-machine for all who like to dive back into those days and for all who are young enough".

Nevertheless, the performance of the band was excellent and all the tracks were bound together with new arrangements as in a long suite. The opener is an early version of "Il tempo della semina" (slightly different from the album one), then all the tracks of their eponymous debut album fluently stream for more than 40 minutes full of energy and passion. If you like Jethro Tull and Deep Purple I'm sure that you'll find extremely interesting this band, but I fear that this album is the wrong starting point if you're not familiar with them. I can't help to regret a better sound quality and I can suggest this live album only to fans and collectors.
