Rino De Filippi "Ritmicolor" Pound Records PRL 17609 Filippi!
So I finally got my hands on this ever elusive record, "Ritmicolor" and boy is it amazing. It does share some songs with other Filippi releases, the main ones being Giardino Dei Miei Desideri & Meccanizzazione. I would say the style is very similar to those releases. "Luminosita" sounds a lot like a couple songs off Primavera but not exact. I'm missing a few of his records but maybe some more of these are off other LP's. I simply cannot get enough RDF, it's as close as you can get to Alessandroni, which makes sense why they recorded together on occasion. I could be wrong but I don't believe he scored any soundtracks, which is strange. His library releases are so rare and sought after, just like Sorgini, Ducros, and Casa. Let me talk a bit about the songs, "Splendida Luce" is such a weirdo jam, I've heard it plenty of times already and I still can't grasp what is going on. It starts pop enough with it's pumped up bongo beats but then it just fades into Jazz Prog weirdome, so bad ass! Oh snaps, "Percosi" is such a beast, just listen to that bass tone, ahhh! You also can't forget the signature, off timing melody stabs and those crazy drums. So check out this motha from my personal collection and please excuse my enthusiasm, I've been drinking!
