** sold-out at source, few copies restocked** 180-gram LP. Limited edition of 500. First reissue. One of the most elusive Italian library records on the Edi-Pan label, America Amore Amaro is an inspired musical interpretation of mid-'70s young America with spacey funk breaks and strung-out Italian sounds of the period. A sure shot from Remigio Ducros and Luciano Simoncini (Arawak, Jason Black, etc.), originally released in 1977. A fantastic record for those who are into the classic Simoncini/Ducros sound, very reminiscent of Arawak's Accadde A......... (1970) and Jason Black recordings. Tight drums, stoned flute sections, shouting horns, Fender Rhodes, heavy basslines, and that signature spacey wah-wah guitar that's on all of the earlier Simoncini recordings, plus variations on Ducros's 1970 "Sgambata" theme -- not to mention that Daniela Casa is probably the person playing all the wah-wah and cosmic fuzz distortions. Great samples for producers and DJs. As with much of Ducros and Simoncini's collaborative work, America Amore Amaro seems to be a geographical tour of America, and shows the duo's take on American culture at the time.
