Al Foster Band was a pseudonym for Italian songwriters and musicians Ivano Alberto Fossati
and Oscar Prudente
. Their only track as Al Foster Band first appeared on their 1973 LP "Poco Prima Dell'Aurora"
on the Italian label Cetra
. The original title was "Tema Del Lupo"
(translated as "Theme Of The Wolf
). It was also released on the same label as a 7" in 1974. When Roulette
picked it up they chose the American sounding artist name Al Foster Band and changed the track name to "Night Of The Wolf"
