Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso - Garofano Rosso

SKU 28-IMT667382.2
Dual keyboard classical Italian rock band with a fabulous, operatic singer, One of their classics from the early to mid 70's. For a band who are so vocally based, surprisingly, this is a instrumental album. It's also a GREAT album!

"Among the few Italian prog groups who survived the '70s, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso belongs to an even smaller circle of bands that never followed any musical trends all over the years. Such as PFM, they entered the EL&P record label Manticore roster, and tried to open up to the foreign market with the album "Banco" (1975).
This operation did not give the expected results though and, once back to Italy, the band released the following year, again on Manticore, "Garofano Rosso", soundtrack to a movie by Luigi Faccini. First, but not unique, Banco's all-instrumental work (followed two years later by "... di terra"), it also sounds perfect as a stand-alone work: pop, rock, folk, jazz and classical music come together in a complex and unstructured style, dynamic, unpredictable and yet affordable at the same time.
The film went virtually unnoticed, and consequently its soundtrack didn't get due recognition at the time of its release. "Garofano Rosso" is now reissued on VM label on colored vinyl in a faithful reproduction of the original LP: a unique opportunity to discover a hidden gem of Italian progressive rock!"
