An amazing collection of rarities for one of the most important bands of Italian 70′s prog-rock: Garybaldi. This anthology contains a track that was meant to be included in their Gleemen debut, some live and alternate versions recorded between 1969 and 1998, and an amazing gem, three live tracks recorded during the Naples Be-In festival of 1973, one of the very few testimonies of those legendary festivals, as in those times no one used to record gigs in Italy! The artwork has been entirely conceived by Matteo Guarnaccia, one of the most important psychedelic painters in Italy: inspired by the famous "Nuda" cover art, he draw a marvellous triple gatefold artwork. The CD is accompanied with a DVD full of images of the band and documentaries shot in the 70s.

Very good CCM AOR, very relaxing album indeed. Troy Werner is a well-respected Producer/ songwriter/ musician, reminds me of Joseph Williams(Toto fame)and Michael W. Smith(CCM artist also)… musically very alike to Smith too… this album is mainly comprised of ballads and softies but also has some dosages of Hi-Tech AOR. The catchy opening tune of “Different” among with the touchy ballad “Ready Or Not” and the rocking “Live For Today” that is a totally catchy song are the best moments on this record…. A bit hard to find it in nowdays but worth the try….

He gives examples of thirds and fifths, intervals, whole-tone licks, chromatic lead-ins, horn stab riffs, chord raking, vibrato bar techniques, bends, slides, shuffle rhythms and more.
