Semiramis — Dedicato a Frazz
(Trident TRI 1004, 1973/2001, CD)
by Mike McLatchey, Published 1995-07-01
Originally released on the rare Trident label, Semiramis have a very high reputation, and with good reason – their only album is a superb classic, and one of the most essential of the 70s Italian reissues. Semiramis were a quintet with two guitarists and made a gigantic symphonic sound full of very unique song structures, rich analog synthesizers, compelling vocals, and great dynamics. For an album of relatively short songs (an average of four to six minutes,) this quintet pulled this off admirably. Semiramis' mix was incredibly rich and powerful with dazzling displays of virtuosity from all musicians involved. One of my all time Italian favorites, this is a timeless album and one of Vinyl Magic's very best reissues.
