Format: Audio CD
Right now, this appears to be out of print, being originally released on the electronic "New Age" music label I C (Innovative Communications) Records sometime around 1979.

Well, it sure does sound like a pretty (as opposed to "difficult", "Arty" or "Experimental")recording entirely comprised of some very pretty sounding analog synthesizers.

Banfi (as far as I can tell) only released this one recording-too bad for it sure equals much of the stuff out there from the time. One could certainly call it "pretty", but it is not a romantic type of album or anything like what Yanni or those types would soon be offering us under the heading of New Age music.

Personally I can't get enough of that rich 70's analog synthesizer sound. Although this would never be mistaken for a Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream album, I think at least some of the fans of Tangerine Dreams works (like perhaps "Rubycon") would find some stuff here they would like.

It seems like the original recording was released around 1979-the pre-CD era. The last 3 tracks appear to have been added for the CD issue of the original album around 1988 although nowhere on the CD booklet are any recording dates listed.

I wish I could say those newer, more digital-sounding tracks add to the album, but they distract from it a great deal. Not only have all the instrumental sounds changed from warm analog to very cold , hollow early digital sounds, but the music itself on these last 3 tracks seems to have taken a shift towards a more popular, far less original, direction.

However, don't let that distract you from the CD's first 5 tracks, you would be missing something indeed if you are a fan of those 1970's synthesizers.
