Crisi, 1972 CGO FC1008
CD: Mellow (MMP 189) 1994

A little-known group who rarely played live in their short lifetime. Their album is extremely obscure and almost never offered on the collectors market. It's really just a curiosity for the completists, as the musical content is quite ordinary. "Crisi", filling the whole of side one, is a three-part instrumental composition with classical overtones, probably inspired by The Nice. The other side contains six short pop songs with a slight psychedelic soul edge and strong sixties vibes, quite similar to I Flashmen, early New Trolls, etc.
