Quarteto 1111 - Onde, Quando, Como, Porquê, Cantamos Pessoas Vivos (1974)

The third and final album from this Portuguese band. 

This band is most known as the band fronted by Jose Kid. He plays mellotrons and does the vocals here. He is helped by a guitarist, bassist, drummer and another guitarist. 

This is a half an hour long album consisting of two songs. Or epics if you want. It is also an album drenched in mellotrons. It is a mellotron lover's best dream, no less. Jose Kid's vocals is also very good.

The band is from Portugal. But the sound is Italian and it has this great Italian symphonic prog feel and music. The only thing that does not make this an Italian symphonic prog album is the nationality of this band.

Both songs, part 1 and 2 of the title of this album, is very good. I very much like this album. A couple of great melody lines is missing though. Besides of that, this is a very good album and essential if you are into Italian symphonic prog.

3.5 points
