Privilege (T.NECK TNS 3003) 1973
CD: Lizard LR 0711-2, 1999

Venturini and Leonetti had previously been in the Soul Survivors and, according to the liner notes, Privilege was formed to mix the influence of Hendrix with the Isley Brothers and The Soul Survivors. The resulting album has its moments, especially because of its good guitar parts with loads of effects (fuzz, wah-wah etc.). Tracks like 'Purple Dog' and 'Traitor' also have effective vocals with a good rhythm.

T.Neck was a subsidiary label of Buddah.
