E.A.Poe — Generazioni (Storia di Sempre)
(Vinyl Magic VM027, 1973/1991, CD)

by Peter Thelen, Published 1995-07-01

Generazioni (Storia di Sempre) Cover art

The original enthusiastic response to this reissue was based, I think, more on the extreme rarity of the original vinyl item than on anything else. Don't misunderstand, though, the music here is quite good and covers a lot of ground from lighter acoustic-based pieces employing beautiful multi-guitars, to harder rock with heavy organ and guitar, to other points between. These heavier moments reference an older more psychedelic turn-of-the-decade sound, while the lighter ones point to the likes of Errata Corrige's Siegfried, il Drago or Banco. The vocals are tasty, solid and powerful, and help accentuate the dynamics of the compositions. A very good recording, also. This is a very mysterious band, few credits are offered, and even my reference materials offer few clues as to the band's lineup.
