5 stars Italian progressive rock is one of my favorite genres. I have a lot of Italian progressive bands in my record collection. PICCHIO DAL POZZO though was a new experience for me. They don't sound like the typical Italian bands at all, although the lyrics are all in Italian. Their music is a mix between progressive Jazz-rock bands such as HATFIELD THE NORTH, HENRY COW, IAN CAN'S NUCLEUS and SOFT MACHINE, the English Canterbury bands from the 1970's such as CARAVAN, and also some Italian jazz-rock bands such as DEDALUS and DUELLO MADRE, and finally GENTLE GIANT. PICCHIO DAL POZZO released two albums when they were active: "Picchio Dal Pozzo" (1975) and "Abbiamo Tutti i Suoi Problemi" in 1980. "Camere Zimmer Rooms" contains all unreleased compositions recorded live in the studio in between these two releases to make a test of their tour equipment. The sound quality and the performance though are as good as on any regular studio recordings from that period in time. "Camere Zimmer Rooms" are a forgotten jewel that has now been revealed to the world. This is a fantastic album that has remained in the shadows for too long. Highly recommended!
