2003 reissue; originally released in 1977. "Although Rocchi is probably better known for his earlier material on other labels, his offering on Cramps from 1977 A Fuoco (originally Cramps CRSCD 023) is a good showcase for his own talents (vocals, synthesizers, songwriting, and production) as well as his knack for surrounding himself with top notch musicians. Ostensibly a pop-singer, his skillful mastery of dynamics and clever arrangements put him on a par with the pre-glam/pre-disco work of David Bowie (circa Hunky Dory) or perhaps even later post-folk Donovan. Indeed, many of the tunes are driven by simple acoustic guitar or piano, and then built upon with full arrangements of synths, bass, drums, saxes, violins, and more. . . . fine music." --Exposé
