Buon Vecchio Charlie’s self-titled record is one of many others who were never released at the time they were made (1972, in this case) but remained hidden in some obscure closet, until a late publication in the ’90s.
This is a real gem that we dare to name among the ‘fundamentals’ of Italian Prog; once released the first time, it soon went out of stock until AMS Records produced a CD version in 2011. A fantastic album, made of pure and complex symphonic prog music, with a beautiful mix of flute, guitar and organ, with strong classical influences; the musicians involved were very skilled, such as the other ones playing in bigger and more famous bands: PFM, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Le Orme and Quella Vecchia Locanda, just to name a few.
Today “Buon Vecchio Charlie” is released once again by AMS Records in its ‘definitive’ edition, on crystal vinyl, with a cover artwork that reflects the CD’s one, including the liner notes written by guitarist and singer Luigi Calabrò.
A must-have for any Italian Progressive Rock lovers!
Released in 180gr on crystal vinyl.
