Ipotesi on LP

Limited vinyl LP pressing, reissued for the first time since 1972. One of the charms of Italian progressive rock is undoubtedly the many groups who released a single LP, overshadowed by the big wigs of the movement. Albums and artists were forgotten for decades only to be blissfully rediscovered decades later. This was the fate of Gruppo D'Alternativa, from Milan, who debuted in 1972 on the Harvest label. Ipotesi falls somewhere between between a rock opera and a concept album, formulated around the death of a friend in a car accident. Theatrical and bold, it's an album with strong imprints of jazz and rock that takes clear inspiration from the Miles Davis' fusion era of the '60s and the '70s. Another hidden gem brought forth from the fertile archives of the Italian music scene of the 1970's. The limited success of the record paired with the label's attempt to obtain commercial appeal brought the short career of the group to an untimely end. Rediscovered only a few years ago, Ipotesi is now available on vinyl for the first time since 1972 and remains faithful to the original.
