“Cream” by The Black Fire is a nearly impossible to find italian LP from 1973. A library album that mix several themes including psychedelic sexy whispered scat vocals, space synth lounge, lazy bossa with spinetta, fender rhodes and a lot of congas, bongos and insane flutes; it also includes the killer wah-wah funk tune “Alcoholic” used years later as the opening song of the kung fu movie Operation Cobra aka Squadra Omicidi Chiama Cobra. Original colorful artwork by the painter G. Pinna.
"Groovy greatness from the Italian sound library scene of the 70s – played by a cool little combo who seem to carry on the best styles from late 60s material by composers like Ennio Morricone or Armando Trovajoli! These guys mix together jazz, bossa, and some mod moments too – all with the kind of breezy styles that we love from earlier Italian film scores for comedies or romantic movies – especially those sweetly-stepping grooves that Morricone could do so well! Instrumentation changes up nicely – with some bossa percussion, offbeat electric piano, wah-wah guitar, and even some very cool wordless female vocals too. The whole thing's great – filled with the kind of gems we used to dig on the Easy Tempo series"
