Casa das Maquinas - Lar de Maravilhas. 1975 Brazil

Starting with the album cover, Lar de Maravilhas possesses a strong resemblance to early Premiata Forneria Marconi. Somewhat mellow, song-oriented, but with a clear progressive approach. Advanced arrangements for acoustic/electric guitar, organ, Moog, and complex rhythms. Not that this album is anywhere on par with Per un Amico, but there are a few similarities. This is the middle of their 3 albums. Apparently the other 2 are more straightforward rock. I get the impression Casa das Máquinas are like those Italian pop bands, such as I Dik Dik or Equipe 84, who decided to dabble in progressive rock for a short time.

Personal collection
CD: 1994 Cast

I should look into getting an original, as the cover art appeals to me greatly.
