Prog New - LP MA6 505S1 Manticore
Sealed 1975 Gatefold Original With Small Saw Cut. "In 1975, The Band Finally Realized That They Were Too Good To Remain Unknown Outside The Borders Of Italy, And Did What Premiata Forneria Marconi Had Done Two Years Before Them: Signed A Deal With Manticore And Released A Series Of Albums With English Lyrics Aimed At The International Market. The Name Was Also Shortened To Just Banco. The Record Consisted Of Tracks From The Debut And "Io Sono Nato Libero" With English Lyrics. The Tracks From The Debut Had Also Been Completely Re-Recorded, And Were Actually Technically Superior To The Original Versions. "Metamorphosis" Had Been Extended With 5 Minutes, And It Revealed Itself In This Version As One Of The Band's Definitive Classics. Fans Of Classic, Keyboard-Based 70's Progressive Rock Will Eat This Up. "Outside" (Named "R.I.P." In Its Original Version) Sounds More Mature And Developed Here, And Both This And "Metamorphosis" Benefits From The Addition Of Synths That Gave Them A Depth And Atmosphere That The Original Versions Lacked Some Of. "Non Ni Rompete" And "Dopo...Niente E' Piu'Lo Stesso" From "Io Sono Nato Libero" Had Been Transformed Into "Leave Me Alone" And "Nothing's The Same" And Was Mostly Unaltered, Except For The English Lyrics Of Course. The Band's Signature-Theme "Traccia II" Was Also Included In Both Its Original Version And A New And Quite Spacey One Called "Chorale". And Let's Not Forget About The Excellent Bonus In Form Of "L'Alberto Del Pane (The Bread Tree)". This Was A Great Song In The Classic Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso Style, And Only Available On This Album. "Banco" Is Essential Stuff For All Fans Of Classic 70's Progressive Rock, And Was In My Opinion More Interesting Than Premiata Forneria Marconi's Attempts At International Albums.” – Vintage Prog... more details
