Balletto di Bronzo - On the Road to YS...and Beyond (mini-lp sleeve)

SKU 27-AMS 200
Il Balletto di Bronzo are (rightly) remembered for making YS, one of the truly great 'one and done' albums of the Italian progressive rock movement of the early 1970s. This album consists of the demo tape - a primitive, 4-track recording, but definitely in 'more than good enough to enjoy it' sound - that the band recorded for Phonogram in 1971 and that got them signed, consisting of embryonic, quite different and English-sung (!) versions of "Introduzione" and "Secondo Incontro" from YS, totaling just over 15' of never-heard Italian rock in its early prime. Includes a rare photo and short liner notes by Gianni Leone.

"On the Road to YS is a landmark in Balletto di Bronzo's history, because it is the demo recording made by the band in 1971 at Phonogram studios Milan, featuring the embryonic versions of two songs that would later be merged into YS (Introduzione and Secondo Incontro), with English vocals, and arrangements that are quite different than the final ones. However, these demos will convince Phonogram to offer the band a record deal. In 1972 they released "YS". The rest is history. Taken form master tapes, and remastered by Gianni Leone and Nicola di Gia in 2010. Also featuring various bonus tracks: an unreleased live version of "La tua casa comoda" live in Mexico 2006. Then from Vina del mar, Chile live 2005 "Donna Vittoria" and "Tastiere Isteriche", from Rome live 2007 "Introduzione", "Primo incontro" and "Napoli sotterranea", from LeoNero's Monitor "Anaconda" and "Nè ieri, nè domani"."
