Of all the albums Banco released prior to 1979, it seems that 1976's Garofano Rosso is the one that gets the bad rap, and I really can't understand that one bit. It's a film soundtrack to the Luigi Faccini film that's known also as The Red Carnation. So why is this album so underappreciated? No Francesco Di Giacomo. People seem to have a hard time wrapping their thoughts around his absence, but then they don't have a problem with ...Di Terra (1978) and he isn't present on that one either.

Upon listening to this, I find this every bit the masterpiece as the other albums they were doing around the same time, only all-instrumental with a bit more soundtracky feel. In fact any lesser band doing this kind of album would probably get the tag of "one of the greats of Italian prog". The songs are obviously shorter but the music is still completely progressive, but that only makes sense. It's no surprise that both Vittorio and Gianni Nocenzi wrote most of the material (not together, though, some cuts are by Vittorio, others by Gianni), occasionally other band members would help write the material. But the minute I heard "Zobeida" I knew this wasn't the dud that's it's often made out to be, with those great themes. "Funerale" has a bit more of that downbeat feel, but doing it in a rather trippy manner. These first two cuts mentioned are not featured on the film, only on the album, although the rest is said to be featured in the film. "10 Guigno, 1924" has a more avant garde feel with bizarre use of percussion. "Quasi Salterello" is a short, synth-dominated piece, while the title track is simply one of the greatest pieces on this album, full band interaction here showing they can certainly hold their own without Di Giacomo's presence. I really don't see how this is inferior to what they did before.

No vocals on this all instrumental recording. Originally recorded as a soundtrack for the Italian film of the same name. Musicianship and compositions are still strong, just not as good as Banco's earlier recordings as Francesco Di Giacomo is, unfortunately, absent...Simon

I saw Banco live a couple of times. Once in Rome and the other times in in Rimini-- amazing. This album in all instrumental but it has its strong moments. The music is well scripted given it is a sound track for a movie. I give it a four out of five.
