Gigi Pascal E La Pop Compagnia Meccanica - Debut (1973)

The one and only album from this Italian band. As the title says, this was supposed to be the first of many albums. That was not to be, though. The band disappeared after a couple of more singles.

The band name is next to impossible to remember too. In particular for a non-Italian speaker like myself. The music though is RPI, Italian progressive rock.

To be more precise; pretty soft and Italian pop dominated progressive rock. Take the softest of the Gabriel era Genesis and you get this album. The organ/moog sound here is great although the overall sound is not that great. The vocals too is good and the bass, guitars and drums is supporting them in a decent manner. 

The result is a good album which unfortunate is far too short. Twenty-six minutes is not long in today's world. It is still a decent to good album well worth checking out if you can get hold of a copy.
