Although New Trolls had released their share of albums since 1968 (and singles since 1967), it was with 1971's Concerto Grosso Per 1 that the band was finally established in prog circles. That album features one side of rock with classical orchestrations (courtesy of Luis Enriquez Bacalov), and the other half consisting of an extended jam (and a rather unnecessarily long drum solo). In 1972, they had some lineup changes, in the keyboards and bass department, in comes keyboardist Maurizio Salvi and bassist Frank Laugelli. They followed up Concerto Grosso Per 1 with a two album set, the first set a studio offering, the second disc a live disc. The first disc consists of mellower pieces, many of them acoustic, with some ballads and classical-influences. "Searching" is the opening number and has a rather acoustic psychedelic feel. "Percival" continues in the acousic vein, where "In St. Peter's Day" shows more of a classical influence (I'm pretty certain, coming from Maurizio Salvi's keyboard playing), not to mention some use of synth and Eminent 310. The second half of the album is nothing short of amazing, however. The band gets much heavier, into Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin territory, but without forsaking the prog rock elements. "Intro" starts off with a drum solo, before the band gets in to jazzy territory. "Bright Lights" shows the hard rock side of the band, with some really high pitched vocals, reminding me of Rob Halford of Judas Priest. In fact I really get a kick off this song, because of the vocals, to think Nico Di Palo was sounding like a vocalist from a band who had yet to release any albums. In fact I really get a kick of the high notes he hits throughout this album (including the more mellow, acoustic numbers found on the studio half).Read more ›

Some of the finest moments of the prog/rock side of New Trolls, with lyrics in English. The live track Lying here will blow your mind. It's a piece of musical cinema that takes you into the realm of Lord of the Rings. Highlights for me are also A Land to Live, a Land to die - great organ work. Some of Nico Di Palo's best electric guitar work on this one: we heard rumours that he was Jimi Hendrix's favourite guitarist at that time.Some of this has touches of Hendrix live. The acoustic guitar on side one is great too.

No doubt this album would benefit from a remaster - hope it happens soon. But really, some of this record is a knockout. Despite it's problems and points of failure it is a timeless wonder.
