Acqua Fragile – s/t. 1973 Italy


Given that Acqua Fragile sing in English, their sound is more typical of the UK progressive rock movement (elements of Genesis, Yes, and Gentle Giant are obvious). Despite that, I still find both Acqua Fragile albums appealing - and Lanzetti has a unique voice that served PFM well for many years afterward. So perhaps not a good representative of what we have come to know as classic Italian prog, but taken on its own accord, it holds up well, similar to Cherry Five in that way.

Personal Collection
LP: 1973 Numero Uno

The original LP comes in a cool four sectioned poster cover as does the Japanese LP reissue from 1980.
