The Fine Machine are Oscar Lindok (Giacomo Dell’Orso), Donimak (Nico Fidenco) and Proluton (Gianni Dell’Orso). An album more than ever representative of the variety and quality of Italian library music composers and its impeccable interpreters. There are all the elements that characterize the style and uniqueness of the sound produced in Italy at the beginning of the 70s. This is from 1972. There are a bunch of breakbeats, lots of percussion and liberal use of flute, piano/organ and electric guitar. Mainly funk (“Shut Paranoia”, “Obsessing Promenade”, “Hand Shake”, “Crazy Eel”, “Wait for me”), this LP includes also the vocal bossa “Snobbery”, the hard latin-beat of “Raging Beat”, the ethereal psych giallo-movie style “God is infinite” with Edda’s vocalism, and the oriental “The Eastern Question”. Limited edition of 500 copies in a glossy cover.
A true classic from C.A.M., one of only two library LPs they issued with picture sleeves. Amazing music, with spooky drums and progressive ideas to die for. I first saw and heard this back in about 2005, but I’ve never managed to get one. So thank you, Cinedelic.
