**2020 repress, orange vinyl** During a 1972 full of progressive rock masterpieces, the Neapolitan group Osanna released a follow-up to their debut LP "L'uomo"; a very peculiar record, the result of a collaboration between the band and the Maestro and composer Luis Bacalov (who already worked with New Trolls on their "Concerto Grosso" the previous year), a work commissioned for Fernando Di Leo's movie "Milano Calibro 9".
The 'real' title of the album is actually "Preludio, tema, variazioni, canzona": only some tracks, in fact, would be effectively used in the film. It's a record full of shades and atmospheres, suspended among Osanna's tension and almost primordial and hard rock aggressivity and the romanicism and solemnity of Bacalov's symphonic arrangements. A successful experiment, perfect for the urban settings depicted by Di Leo into his masterpiece.
Faithful reproduction of the original 1972 edition, on orange vinyl.
