 * 300 copies, machine-printed numbered edition, 180gr vinyl *A beatiful reissue of Flavio Giurato's second album released in Italy in 1982, whose original edition usually sells for crazy prices on the second-hand market. This undervalued piece of work was perhaps too unusual during the time of release to get the full attention it deserves. The powerful image of the high diver re-emerging to the light and air after his performance orchestrates and subsumes the spirit of the whole work, in which situations sometimes lyric, sometimes cryptic, sometimes social are sung in a well-balanced mixture of acoustic and electric ebb and flows. In the album, the way the songwriter manipulates the song genre by discarding and expanding its boundaries through the relevance accorded to well wrought instrumental pieces is unique. Echoes, cultural and historical allusions, and embedded quotations are often a characteristic of Giurato's songs and music-writing
