Paride e gli Stereo 4 - Naufrago in Città. 1971 Italy

Almost 7 years to the day I promised I'd get around to this album alone, and separated from La Seconda Genesi. No time like the present, eh?

An interesting album from 1971 that supposedly was recorded before La Seconda Genesi's classic. One of the rarest albums on the planet (as is Seconda Genesi), but it's not really progressive rock, so definitely prepare yourself for the proper expectation. The music is all instrumental, and is primarily acoustic guitar with flute, and some organ accents. Very pleasant, and at times, recalls Era di Acquario's more serene moments. A fine album.

Personal collection
CD: 2002 Akarma (w/La Seconda Genesi)

Originals are in the 4 figure range, so best to stick with the reissue here. The Akarma CD (second scan) comes in a thick tri-fold "Karma-Pak" with liner notes in Italian. The CD is a vinyl transfer. Though it does appear to be with band involvement in this case.

Last listen: July 20, 2016
