A superb, exemplary synthesis of the golden years in Lucio Battisti's career, and of the partnership with Mogol, his lyricist and poet. The 1966/72 period - the one under the Ricordi aegis - has had the Genius' best production, a period in which better than anyone else the composer and singer from Rieti has been able to recount Italy, and the life rhythms of its ordinary people. This four-vinyls collection - in an ideal path between autumn, winter, spring and summer - summarizes the production of those years, from the catchy chart hits "Un'avventura" and "Acqua azzurra, acqua chiara", to the most progressive atmospheres of the four "Amore e non amore" record instrumentals, “Seduto sotto un platano”, “Davanti ad un distributore automatico di fiori”, “7 agosto di pomeriggio” and “Una poltrona”, passing through the crying blues of “Il vento” and “Il tempo di morire”. A collection that gives us the opportunity to remember the rebellious one, and censored by TV networks, in "Mio Dio, no" lyrics, because of the phrase "I see her in my pajamas and she is coming... my God no! What are you doing? What are you doing? "; words which today would sound like naive and almost ridiculous, but at the time they thundered as an unacceptable, double erotic sense hidden behind the cadences of the Genius' beat. In this box there is anything to throw away, each song is a significant contribution to Lucio Battisti's production.
