Airline - Numero Uno (1989)
The one and only album from this Italian band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, guitars, bass, keyboards and vocals.
This album was released in a very limited amount of LPs. So you should think it is a very expensive and sought after album. It is not.
This album opens with a cover version of a PFM song. And that should make this album an RPI album. It is sort of an RPI album.
Neo-prog is the correct label on their music. Although with some RPI influences.
The vocals are OK and the music follows the neo-prog script with the usual guitars and keyboards sound. Ditto for the bass and drums.
The sound is pretty poor though and the guitar solos is pretty dubious.
The quality of the music on this half an hour long album is pretty poor in general. They never got a record deal and they never really got a name in the prog rock starved Italian scene either. That says it all. Italians support quality music is when they hear it. They did not support this band.
