Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Although admittedly a posthumous release, I was very surprised at the rather dismissive tenor of many of the reviews of this album to date. Hopefully this record will be reappraised soon as being a release worthy of anyone's consideration as I feel it does enhance an already rich legacy left behind by this very fine and innovative band. (So what if Charisma wanted to ride the slipstream of the lucrative ELP juggernaut?)
Essential: A masterpiece of psych-rock music collection.
Vanilla Fudge are a pioneering psychedelic band with a superb lineup and are famous for psyching up well known cover versions. Their debut albums features some of their best and most popular material such as the stunning' You Keep Me Hanging On', 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'She's Not There'.
Antonello Venditti è nato a Roma l'8 marzo 1949.
Appena adolescente, compone due delle sue canzoni più famose, Roma capoccia e Sora Rosa. L'occasione di farle ascoltare in pubblico arriva alla fine degli anni sessanta con la partecipazione alle attività del celebre locale romano Folkstudio, assai importante per la formazione dei giovani autori e la crescita musicale della città (vi suonò anche Bob Dylan). In questo locale conosce molti altri cantautori e musicisti tra cui Francesco De Gregori e Rino Gaetano.
È proprio con De Gregori e la collaborazione di Giorgio Lo Cascio ed Ernesto Bassignano che Antonello comincia ad esibirsi al Folkstudio in uno spazio del programma denominato "I giovani del folk".
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
A rather forgotten band from USA,this quintet hailed from Fort Wayne at the state of Indiana.ETHOS got lucky to be signed by Capitol Records and soon they moved to New York in order to record their first album.By the end of 1975 the work was almost ready and the eight arrangements of ”Ardour” were all written by the leader of the band,vocalist/mandolin player/guitarist Will Sharpe.
This legendary band dates back to the beginning of the 70’s in the neighborhood Jardines del Bosque de Guadalajara, where some young friends manage to invent their own band, “That day, the room was filled with magic”, a legend called: “La Revolución de Emiliano Zapata”.
