Rino & Luigi De Filippi "Giardino Dei Miei Desideri" Wildcat 113 197? @320K
So, for my first post of 2014, I present to you a very nice Rino & Luigi De Filippi album on the impossibly rare italian library label, Wildcat. So if you don't know Luigi is Rino's son. Filippi's album, Oriente Oggi was actually one of the first Italian records I ever heard and I've been maxed pumped on him ever since. Just like Alessandroni, no matter how proggy the time signatures or ideas get, his melodic sense always remains constant. The record starts off ridiculously strong with, "L'Erba Di Prima", which is one of the best Filippi songs I've ever heard, so gangsta! Then we get 3 very beautiful jazzy piano driven songs before getting back to the beats. "Phil Armonia" is just brilliant and "Scie Luminose" is about as tasteful as prog can get. All in all just a very solid record from one of the most solid composers ever! Also, if anyone can give me some info on Wildcat 115, as I know nothing about it and there seems to be no info on the net. So enjoy this from my personal collection ripped @320K. Happy New Year!
