"Born as Pow-Pow and coming from the town of Biella (Piedmont, Italy), the band then changed their name in Odissea in 1972. The same year, even before releasing an official album, they luckily opened for Genesis, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, and Rocky's Filj. Their eponymous debut was then released in 1973 on the RiFi record label, enclosed in a great gatefold cover and an inside LP envelope with lyrics. Musically it's very melodic progressive rock, with a strong acoustic component, over which rises the charismatic singer Roberto Zola's voice, reminiscing of the particular timbre of Jumbo's Alvaro Fella. Odissea split up in 1974 when the same Zola left the band to pursue, without success, a solo career. As it usually happens, Odissea remains the only LP from the band, a little Italian prog gem. 180 gram black vinyl edition, a replica of the original 1973 release." Gatefold with printed innersleeve.
