le particelle Azimut 1 (180g vinyl LP, £12.95)
Little is known about this extemporary project, also because it lasted just for a single LP, originally released in December 1970, preceded by the 45rpm 'Per Amore/Oggi Domani'. It was a 11-piece group, a nucleus tough to keep close, who in fact disbanded soon. Le Particelle were founded by Paola Orlandi, a singer who was already known in the late '50s. As this project's nature would easily predict, the album 'Azimut 1' is a sort of pop opera with multi-vocal singing, a series of cover songs from Italian (Dik Dik, Maurizio e Fabrizio, Patty Pravo...) and foreign (Moody Blues, Cat Stevens, Rare Bird...) artist, for an interesting mix of beat, rock, soul and rhythm'n'blues. Another piece of the Italian pop scene of the '70s, in a perfect replica of the original edition, which has never been reissued until today.
