Riflessioni: Idea D'Infinito - 1973 Music LPM 2011 (reissued on CD by Vinyl Magic, VM012)
Argitari - 1975 IAF 29001

This group has been known to collectors for many years, due to the interest in their very rare first album. Although issued in 1973, it sounds more like 1970 due to the technical quality (not bad but more rudimentary than most 1973 releases). The album title is a combination of the two best tracks, showcasing powerful early progressive rock with plenty of flute and guitar riffing (comparable to Jethro Tull 1969-70 and the first Gravy Train album) and some psychedelic sound effects. On other tracks, like the ballad, "Cara Emily", the band strived for eclecticism and variance of sound. An interesting album.
