    I finally yesterday got Stormy Six album Macchina Maccheronica (1980). I really like their last three albums (L'apprendisat,Macchina Maccheronica and Al Volo) but I am not so familiar with their earlier output. Any suggestions?

    ^ The debut, L'Idee di Oggi (1969), features esteemed singer/songwriter Claudio Rocchi and is a canto/folk-pop affair with psychedelic touches. It's fairly Ok for what it is, but more resembles Rocchi's early solo works than later SSix.

    L'Unità (1972) loses the mock-psych altogether and goes for a purely song-based, sometimes even good time-jazzy variation on the folk-pop recipé which is now more akin to Buffalo Springfield or the debut CSN or even Poco. Lyrics are getting more political and, honestly, some of their tunes are actually quite cozy ("Pontelandolfo", "Sciopero!") - but don't expect anything remotely radical in the musics department here. These are straight-up hummables.

    Guarda Giù Dalla Pianura (1974) sees them change 90 degrees into an almost entirely acoustic, militant protest-singer's collective and is -not- a rock record. For completists, but frankly the single SSix album I never find myself listening to.

    Un Biglietto del Tram (1975) successfully marries the radical/militant marxist agenda to some truly fine arrangements for acoustic guitars and violins, eventually adding electric bass and drums. It's a concept album and a much loved one, especially with the Italian left, and some of these songs are admittedly highly creative and listenable and with an obvious "progressive" streak to some of it. Not quite 'there' yet, but antecedents to L'Apprentista can be heard here.

    So start with Biglietto or the instrumental soundtrack album Cliché from '76, which has several older songs rearranged for this more advanced new setup. It's still not as groundbreaking as that debut Asia, though.

    Interestingly two of the tracks on here are also on In Love With's Axel Erotic album with sax replacing violin, Les Flics De La Polic and Chauve Et Courtois, they work very well.

    No indication of whether we'll see a physical product.

    EDIT: OK, the answer to that was “we'll see it today”, as the page has now been updated with a CD.

    Any In Love With fans here? If so you need to check out Sylvain Darrifourcq's other project Darrifourcq Hermia Ceccaldi. This magnificent trio just released cool new album Kaiju Eats Cheeseburgers. It is more avant-jazz than avant-prog but I am sure you will like it.

    This is very good, I've got the one two before this, For King & Country, I'm probably going to get them all as this is certainly an area I'm loving at the moment.
