Canzoniere Del Lazio "Italien " ( 1977 ,Italy ,prog folk )



RYM

The following review is from RYM


Recorded in 1 day in an East German studio, this album was Clara Murtas' debut in Canzoniere Del Lazio (CDL).  It's also the only time Mauro Pagani of PFM was in the band.  The primitive recording techniques suit the band well and give the songs a clear sound.  The songs themselves are drawn from Spirito Bono, Miradas, and, surprisingly, Morra.  But they are all graced with enough changes to make these recordings worthwhile.  CDL prove once again that they were Italy's best folk band by far.


I only uploaded lossless because you can get mp3  HERE

Angelo Branduardi nonstop selection
















Angelo Branduardi is one of my favorite Italian singers .
He released a lot of original albums until today .
RYM
Every album is an excellent one ,however ,
the following 4 albums are the most important ones as progressive rock masterpiece.

Alla Fiera Dell'est (1976)  ....3rd
La Pulce D'acqua(1977 )  .....4th
Cogli La Prima Mela (1979).....5th
Cercando L'oro (1983) .....7th

He sings and plays the violin even today as a SSW .
They are not prog rock ,unfortunately ......
But ,the 4 albums are shining brightly in the  prog skies even tonight  !!!!!

Many of his songs' lyrics were written by his wife Luisa Zappa Branduardi .
PHOTO
It may be because his songs fills with a lot of love and peace....(although I don't understand Italian language at all ...)

I do hope younger generations enjoy Angelo Branduardi's  music a lot
If you  listen to my selected Angelo Branduardi 's favorite tracks ,
and like them ,listen to his original albums,please .
you will find that they are  brilliant treasures to prog fans ,absolutely .

In addition ,we cannot forget the contribution by Maurizio_Fabrizio for those 4 albums .His brilliant arrangement for them makes all of the tracks more & more progressive .
Maurizio is also still active .These days ,he supported making Renato Zero's new double studio album " Zerovskij"  Maurizio composed  9 tracks of 18 tracks (Mi trovi dentro di te, Ti do i voli miei, Colpevoli, Vivo qui, L'amore che ti cambia, Aria di settembre, Ti andrebbe di cambiare il mondo?, Un uomo da niente, Stalker )

Steve Hackett nonstop selection


Who is the best prog  guitarist all over the world ?
I think it is Steve Hackett .
RYM
Especially ,
From 1st solo album to 4th solo album are the best .(no question asked ! )
Hackett is active enough by making new albums and performing concert tours all over the world even now .
I also watched his concert several times before ,
Everytime ,he did GREAT performance for us ,and made us so excited .

This time ,I edited  Hackett songs nonstop (part 1 + part 2 ) for young generations.
Almost of the tracks are from his 1st to 4th solo albums .
By listening to them ,I hope more young generations will know his excellent prog tracks and guitar playing ,
and you will go to enjoy his live performance a lot when he visits your countries .

Absolutely ,Hackett is the best prog guitarist all over the world .

Many prog bands ask Hackett  to play in their albums and in their concerts even now.
It proves Hackett is still one of  the living great musicians to everyone .

One of the examples is the following album .(released on May 29 ,2017 )
WATCH
Hackett plays 12 strings guitar on the track "The Hermit " in the album .
"The Hermit " was originally included in Hackett's 1st solo album "Voyage Of The Acolyte "(1975) ,The Watch version (2017) is quite different from the original version .
It has more powerful symphonic rock taste .
Worth to try The Watch version ,too .

Pedro Ruy-Blas is a popular singer in Spain ,and Dolores was his backup band (5 members ).

In fact,there is another compilation (2 CDs set ) released in Spain in 1999.
But three tracks are not included in the 2 CD set compilation (track 5,6 ,7 ),so it may be worth to upload this compilation released in Japan in 2001 .

track 1,7,11....1st album (1976 )
track 2,10....2nd album (1977)
track 5,8...3rd album (1978)
