“New Trolls”, the eponymous second album by the renowned Ligurian band, is actually a compilation of songs previously released as singles / 45rpm’s. Issued in 1970, when the ‘album’ concept hadn’t been established yet, it followed the trail of many other similar releases – one amongst all: Le Orme’s “L’aurora”.
The songs are still bound to the band’s first beat/psychedelic era, and compared to that the impact of the following “Concerto Grosso” will result even more devastating. But the songs quality here is high anyway, with a particular reference to the vocal harmonies and hendrix-inspired guitars, the most distinctive elements in the New Trolls’ sound. Even if the LP was intended as a mere compilation, can be considered the actual band’s second album.
