"Among the many ones who left their band to pursue a solo career in the '70s we find Ivano Fossati. In 1972 his group Delirium had become very popular, thanks to 'Jesahel,' the song they presented at the Sanremo Festival in February: it became a real chart-hit 45 RPM, a very unusual thing for a progressive rock band. But commercial success didn't stop Fossati from leaving Delirium and releasing in 1973 his debut album, under the name of Alberto Ivano Fossati - Il grande mare che avremmo traversato ('The big sea we would have crossed'), a mainly acoustic LP, suspended between old prog moments ad songwriting, all mixed with orchestral and Latin/ethnic elements, accompanying his peculiar voice. A poetic and suggestive LP, which will capture the attention of the most demanding Italian prog fans too. Released on CD paper sleeve in 2004 by BTF/Vinyl Magic, Il grande mare che avremmo traversato is now reissued on LP by the same label. The vinyl transfer has been made for the first time with the DMM technology (direct metal mastering), with the aim of offering an even better sound quality on 180 gram vinyl."
