Probably my all time fave song.

How anyone could fail to be moved by the 2nd half of this wonderful song I cannot fathom. Superb guitar solo followed by the brass.... it moves me every time.

And this was the 1st time they had ever played in concert.

Stunning. If it’s derivative, well, it’s as good if not better than anything that preceded it.

(Sigh)

I love this song - from Genesis' best album

Nice one. I saw him somewhere on that tour but not RAH, may have been Islington.

To be honest, not really, no.

But I enjoyed the album as it happens. :D

La Nuova Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno - Il Pittore Volante

Enjoyable. Played it 2 or 3 times now and it is somewhere up there near Banco, PFM etc. in my mind.

Wiki says:

The band was formed in Rome in 1971 by vocalist Luciano Regoli, guitarist Nanni Civitenga and Drummer Froggio Francica. They released only one LP, the concept album Per... Un Mondo di Cristallo (1973). The album tells the story of an astronaut who on returning home finds life on Earth to be extinct. The band spent two years secluded in a monastery of an undisclosed religion perfecting the lyrics and the music.

Following the dissolution of the band in 1973, Regoli and Civitenga went on to form Samadhi in 1974. Civitenga also worked with the hard rock band Crystals, which included members of Banco del mutuo soccorso, Area and Alphataurus. Francica joined bands such as Procession in 1974 and Kaleidon. Later Regoli became a painter, and fronted the band DGM.

In 2010, after a 37-year hiatus, the band reunited and released the album Il pittore volante under the name Nuova Raccomandata con ricevuta di ritorno. The booklet featured some of Regoli's paintings. The band played a concert with Thijs van Leer in 2010. Several live tracks from the gig would later appear on the album Prog Exhibition.

Indonesian guitarist with a stellar guest list including Marco Minnemann, Jordan Rudess, Mike Stern and John Frusciante.

Highly rated on progarchives, it has its moments for sure but is a bit too heavy on the Jazz Fusion for me to gag for more.

Would be right up some BCB streets I suspect.

From your write up I thought it would be right up my Avenue, but turned out to be a bit blander than I'd hoped for. Glad I tried it though, so thanks.

An interesting crossover between progressive rock and jazz fusion.
