Banco del Mutuo Soccorso - Passeggiata in Bicicletta e Corte di Dimostranti

Artist: Banco del Mutuo Soccorso

Song: Passeggiata in bicicletta e corte di dimostranti

Album: Garofano Rosso (19766)

The long-lived and influential Italian progressive band Banco del Mutuo Soccorso was influenced by such British progressive giants as Yes and Gentle Giant while also drawing heavily on classical and folk music. Although the group simplified their sound in later years, from 1972 to 1976 the group produced a series of eclectic, densely arranged progressive classics. more

Of all the albums Banco released prior to 1979, it seems that 1976's Garofano Rosso is the one that gets the bad rap, and I really can't understand that one bit. It's a film soundtrack to the Luigi Faccini film that's known also as The Red Carnation. So why is this album so underappreciated? No Francesco Di Giacomo. People seem to have a hard time wrapping their thoughts around his absence, but then they don't have a problem with ...Di Terra (1978) and he isn't present on that one either. review
