Vita Sul Pianeta
"Vita sul pianeta is a concept album released in 1973 by the Car Juke-Box record label, the same one responsible for the first Le Orme's LP's. It was recorded by Laser, a five-piece band from Rome previously named Il Laser di Elvezio Sbardella after their founder's name. Even if most people are interested in the album because it is extremely rare (one of the rarest in the Italian progressive rock field, with just a few hundred copies printed), the music should be re-estimated here, especially if we consider that the LP was recorded with a very limited budget and in just one take. It is also really varied, composed of both hard rock guitar and keyboard-based songs, with hints of beat and blues music, too. The band sadly split up right after the release of Vita sul pianeta, due to the lack of support from the record label and the keyboard player leaving to join the military service. Very difficult to find also in its previous reissues, the album is now available again on black, 180 gram audiophile vinyl."
