Release Notes
  • This italian prog classic is now available from VM indie label in a new ltd. ed. deluxe LP reissue on 180 gr. viny

This band from Turin made their first album Frontiera in 1972), a good album that can be easily described as an hard prog LP. With a line-up of two guitars, bass and drums, and the original high-pitched voice of singer Gianfranco Gaza, the band plays a very good hard rock with some progressive influences and acoustic passages.

The album has its moments and it’s particularly rare. The band reappeared in 1974 with a new line-up and a new recording deal, Fonit that releases their second album Fiaba. A mature work, much more original than their first and more in a symphonic vein with large use of sax and flute with guest appearances by drummer Francesco Froggio Francica (from Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno), Delirium’s keyboard player Ettore Vigo and Circus 2000 female singer Silvana Aliotta, while drummer Roberto Balocco (ex-Capsicum Red) helped the group in concert.
