Panna Freda — Uno
(Vinyl Magic VM 001, 1971/1994, CD)
by Mike McLatchey, Published 1995-07-01
Vinyl Magic's first CD was a great pick – the very obscure and dreadfully underrated Panna Fredda. One of the most refined bands in Italian progressive, Panna Fredda are certainly a hard one to describe. They remind me of many of their contemporaries – Banco, Semiramis, Biglietto per l'Inferno, and other of the spacier classical rock bands, but there's also a slight German feel to it – in ways similar to "Ballerman" era Grobschnitt or other more symphonically oriented groups. As with many Italian groups of this era, the vocals are good, the instrumentals are well done, and the production is excellent. For 1971, this is a pioneering and solid release; many should like this.
