5.0 out of 5 stars Major classic, one of the best from Italy February 22, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Can't describe this other than Bach-like classical melodies meet the best of jazz/rock with plenty of romanticism to go around. For violen-lovers, this album is a must. A very beautiful album that is impossible to get tired of. Their first s/t is slightly different but just as good and essential. Guess I should also say that you need the Alusa Fallax album, Celeste albums, and Locanda Della Fate album if you like Quella Vecchia Locanda.
Buy this album (and their first s/t from 1972) without hesitation.
Also, if you like Quella Vecchia Locanda, check out the album "Velha Gravura" by Quaterna Requiem (a 1990's outfit from Brazil) as it's also chocked with violens and classical melodies and romanticism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Music September 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
My uncle is Claudio Filice, the violinist from the second group. we were talking of his experience right now and he was thinking of putting the band together again to make a few new cd's. I've listened to his music, he teaches violin in Molise now and has made music for many itaian movies ,and I must say that his rock stands among the best of its time, including Matia Bazar, Genesis and Pooh. I think it's well worth listening to, the instrumental and the lyrics are fabulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars everyone needs to give this album a chance August 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Now THIS is my kinda music.

What we have here is an Italian progressive rock band from the 70's. On this album, you can expect Emerson, Lake and Palmer-like piano jams, fast and furious violin solos, some extremely emotional singing that's both melodic and interesting (even though I can't speak Italian, that doesn't matter when it comes to vocal melodies).

Some of the violin jams are so sizzling hot, they remind me of Frank Zappa's "The Gumbo Variations". Check out the 10-minute track 4 for further proof! What a song THAT one is! There's violins, classical pianos, just the right amount of electric guitar, and I believe that's a saxophone at the end. Man, what a song!

These guys are very good at building musical ideas, and finding creative ways to use their musical instruments. I love it. The one surprising thing is the lack of guitar playing in many spots. That's not a bad thing though- there's a lot of things going on at once that keep your interest, and you know, we can't have guitars ALL the time, can we?

Also, I love the way Quella Vecchia Locanda mixes classical elements with rock, and the results are fantastic. I will never understand why more Americans won't dig deeper into the catalog of 70's rock and find hidden gems such as this one. I love this album, and highly recommend it for fans of Frank Zappa, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Soft Machine, Caravan, Jethro Tull, and other prog rock artists.

I apologize for not typing up the name of each song, but please buy this great album. If you like diversity in your music, you will absolutely love this album. Oh, and I agree with the other reviewer who mentions how welcoming and friendly the instrumentation is. Yup, it's like that for the entire album.

This is a great recording of very classically influenced Italian progressive rock that was released in 1974. The musicians on the album are all excellent and include the wickedly talented Claudio Gilice (violin), Giorgio Giorgi (vocals, flute, piccolo), Elbassimo Giorgi (vocals, electric bass, string bass); fantastic keyboardist Elbassimo Roselli (acoustic piano; harpsichord; electric piano); Patrick Fraina (drums); and Raimondo Cocco (vocals, acoustic and electric guitar). The five tracks on the album range in length from 4'12 to 9'42, and the entire album is only 34 minutes in length.

What sets this album apart from all of the other mid 1970s Italian prog includes the instrumentation, which is mostly dominated by acoustic instruments, and the compositions themselves, which are the most polite rock pieces I have ever heard. In fact it is a little like listening to a Baroque period string ensemble with an electric bassist, the occasional clean sounding and delicate electric guitar, a drummer, and good vocalists (the vocals are in Italian). I should note that although synth fans won't like this album too much, there is a brief passage at the end of the album that lasts for about 45 seconds or thereabouts, that features some string synth and an ARP 2600 "explosion".

In general, this is a very warm and intimate album that is just plain nice to listen to - the acoustic piano work and the violin playing is excellent. Furthermore, the flute work reminds me a little of PFM's quieter moments. There are however, fleeting moments when the arrangements get really interesting and become a little more angular and modern classical sounding.

5.0 out of 5 stars IL TEMPO DELLA GIOIA April 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
five are the tracks included in this second album.the first of them,"villa Doriab pamphilli"it seeks to be home to thr first festival in which highlighted,and it is a very synmphonic track.the fragment in which a harp is accompanied by a quasi-orchestra is sublime,and the violin and the voice are magnificent next"A forma di" it is an almost instrumental cut to the classic music.the violins play a quick tempo,accompanied by a very lyrical flute and a playful clavicembalo.The choirs don't lag behind,adorning and sculpting the main melody. the third gives title to the album and it allows to establish the main difference between this work and the previous the instruments play more among them and they intertwine their sound Quella Vecchia LOcanda the leaders,very clear,were the violin and the moog.Now,the cut is introduced by the piano,the violins and the voice that open the way to a melodic instrumental tangle,The alone ones you happens quickly and with spectacular changes.Dynamism to the limit. "un giorno un amico" is very close to the classical music with jazz is a very lyrical and melodic track,highlighting the solo violin and the trumpet.this is a one album wonderful excellent and highly recommended.
