Capricorn College is one of those borderline Italian
progressive rock bands from the seventies that tried to surface.
Led by composer Mario Barigazzi, the band only released
two albums on the Kansas label, both containing a mix of
early 70's Italian melodic pop with clear progressive inspiration.
The first one, in particular, titled "Orfeo 2000", is generally
regarded as the best of the two, especially for the instrumental
parts, while the second, released as Barimar & Capricorn College, contains shorter songs.
The band also released five singles.
The band split after the second LP, in 1974.
