referencing Banco, LP, Album, Gat, MA 505-VI, MA6-505-S1

Pretty decent keyboard driven progressive rock. This release is mostly made up of re-recorded/re-mixed English versions of the bands Italian material found on the 'Io Sono Nato Libero' LP. Somewhat similar to what PFM had done with their English 'Photos Of Ghosts' LP. It was originally released on Emerson Lake and Palmer's Manticore label, which may have helped initial sales.
Among some collectors, this LP has become laughingly known as "the fat Italian guy throwing his shoe" LP. There was a time (70's/80's) when you couldn't give this album away, as they were very common. Today, I still see the odd copy of this Canadian pressing at some of the second hand shops selling for around $30.00 in NM/NM condition.
