1971 - Mellow Records reissue: 1994
This is the first album by FLEA ON THE HONEY,
a quartet from Sicily but based in Rome.
After this release, they shortened their name to FLEA
and released the much better "Topi o Uomini" in 1972.
Then they broke up for a while after some personnel
changes, but the original quartet reformed in 1975 and
produced a really good Jazz Rock album under
the name ETNA.
This album is very far from the jazz rock style of 1975.
Here there is proto-prog hard rock, with rocking guitars,
interesting riffs, even some flute a la Tull.
But in terms of its contemporaries, it is similar to
ROVESCIO DELLA MEDAGLIA'S "La Bibbia"-- again,
apart from the English lyrics.
There are definitely signs that point to their next wonderful,
more overtly progressive album, but in these short songs
the approach is hard rock with prog flavoring.
