4 stars This album released in 1980 is nothing but the re-release of "La Luna" with the addition of a tenth song: "Gulliver".

This song in particular is taken from a British traditional that by coincidence was used also by the Blackmore's Night in "All For One".

All the rest is quite good if you don't have "La Luna" already. There's the other British Traditional "Gli Alberi Sono Alti" (The Trees They Do Grow High). This song was played by Pentangle, Kay McCarthy, Clannad and there's also an instrumental version from Blackmore's Night (again them).

A particular mention for "Confessioni Di Un Malandrino" that's the Angelo's masterpiece, with the lyrics taken from a poetry of the Russian poet Esenin and a great classical guitar base and another to "Notturno" that's the most "progressive" song ever produced by him in my opinion.

As I have rated La Luna with 4 stars, I can't not rate the same this re-release also because the additional song is a good one.

For the owners of "La Luna" let's say that the behaviour of EMI in releasing a single song at the price of an LP is not very polite.
