about

Formed in 1992, Italian project Nostalgia from San Remo
was the brainchild of guitarist/singer Massimo Mazzeo,
who guided the band next to his school friend
multi-instrumentalist Andrea Romano.
A tape with their arrangements were caught in the
attention of Mellow Records' leader Mauro Moroni,
who suggested the duo to rearrange them in a progger way.
So Mazzeo and Romano re-recorded the tracks and
Nostalgia's debut ''Never Too Late'' became reality on
19th May 1993.
By the time of the album's release Mazzeo was going through
a painful personal phase, having lost his job, and all these
facts are taped on the emotional performance of the band
and the auto-biographical lyrics.
Additionally both Mazzeo and Romano were fans of CAMEL,
so the album has a good sense of melody throughout,
where soft acoustic textures meet often with melodic
electric solos.
It is more in the vein of the material of ATON'S or NOTTURNO CONCETRANTE.
Mazzeo's voice and acoustic guitar capture the interest of the
listener, the sound is very sweet and deeply esoteric.
A good album for anyone looking for some music with
a background essence and emotional.
