Review by loserboy
5 stars Without a question, LOCANDA DELLE FATE were one of Italy's richest sounding progressive rock bands of all time. Apparently this recording which has been released by Mellow Records was taken originally from a radio broadcast during their "Phonogram... Mania" tour. Sound reproduction is not pure digital and does show its age a bit, but regardless this is just simply a magical recording. Featured here are many of the tracks from their stellar debut album "Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amani Piu" and one unreleased track. If you are a big fan than this recording is essential.

3 stars For the fans of their great album "Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amano Pił", there is absolutely no risk with this live album. They should be transported to the same wonderful moments. At least when reading the track list.

The studio album was perfect : sound, arrangements were top notch. Even if this live recording is thirty years old, the sound is rather average (to poor, almost boot quality) which is a pain for the type of music "Locanda" is displaying.

The other concern is to know whether or not it is relevant to release a live album when a band has only one studio album behind him. I was incredibly in love with their debuts but this is a carbon copy (except "La Giostra" which was unreleased) . The audience is polite, the band as well (grazie, grazie...). At this time of their career, they could of course hardly know that they would only release one studio album (forget about their 1999 joke).

The sound quality is weak during one of their greatest number : "Forse Le Luciole ...". Emotions are still the same of course, but the studio version is far much more superior. It is probably the song which has lost the most of its beauty. The same is valid during the unreleased song :"La Giostra". Difficult to judge the quality of this track. What a shame !

Three stars.

2 stars If ever you wish to understand why there is a sonic "crusade" against the use of digital noise reduction by many, this release is a fine example. Even one of the finest reissue labels (Mellow) got burned by some engineer with the misuse of said technique, and the results are disastrous. Nice ... (read more)

4 stars 8.5/10 Great Here is a fantastic, basically flawless performance of the wonderful album "Forse le lucciole...". The songs here are all mind blowing and the musicianship is spot on. I would give this a perfect 10, but that big 1.5 comes off because of the sound quality. The quality of this ... (read more)
