Rock On! Wednesday, 7 february 2024 – Locanda Delle Fate, Il Balletto Di Bronzo, Osanna, Quella Vecchia Locanda, New Trolls & Le Orme

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday January 24th. Dan’s pick of the week: Locanda Delle Fate (Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amano Più), Il Balletto Di Bronzo (Ys), Osanna (L’uomo), Quella Vecchia Locanda (Il Tempo Della Gioia), New Trolls (Aldebaran) & Le Orme (Contrappunti).

Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amano Più is het eerste album van de Italiaanse progressieve rockband Locanda delle Fate en werd uitgebracht in 1977. Het album slaagde er in om een eervolle nummer 25 te bereiken in de wekelijkse hitlijst van “TV Sorrisi e Canzoni” en werd door critici geprezen als een van de betere werken van de romantische Italiaanse progressieve rock.

Prog Archives review: “Not much to add to this one….I just adore this album, put the best of Banco and PFM…mixed a bit with Yes/Genesis and Camel and you will have Locanda; no kidding!. Does progressive music can give you more pleasure or get any richer than this..?

Dual guitars, dual Keys, seven members,a vocalist (that put so much passion in his singing that makes your head spin) and the right chemistry between them; because I have to be honest, nobody shine more than the other…and, that is probably what makes this band as great as it was…at least for a split second in time!!!…Maybe?, that is the formula…there is a tip on all this, I guess….. I have read many comments regarding this one, some exellent..other good and some others pretty bad; specially regarding the voice of Leonardo. IMHO, this is a MASTERPIECE!!!!! all the way thru (see my definition of that on GG/”In a Glass House”).

(…) I just will have to say that is a shame that like many other  Italian progressive Acts of the 70′, they made ONE album and then disappeared in obscurity (their 1999 release is good but will not stand against this one.) You will regret if a copy of this album is not in your collection..Highly Recommended!”
