"After their first album, Dolce Acqua, from 1971 and their memorable TV presence at Sanremo music festival around mid-1972, Ivano Fossati suddenly had to leave Delirium for his military service, later to pursue a solo career that's still successful today, even with a lighter (but always full of jazzy and ethnic influences) kind of music. His replacement was Englishman Martin Frederick Grice (from Boomerang) who, along with the ever-present flute, was also a brilliant sax player. With this renewed line-up they released their second album, Lo Scemo E Il Villaggio, still with some jazz influences and a stronger use of sax by the new member Grice, with the evident lack of a role for lead singer in the band, all members taking the lead singer role. The track 'La Mia Pazzia' is the closest to first album's style. 180 gram vinyl, gatefold cover."
