Limited vinyl LP pressing of this 1973 album. Perigeo was founded in Rome in 1971: five professional musicians, all of them already largely active in the jazz and rock circuits of those years, who gathered in the studio to wisely blend together the two aforementioned music genres: this is probably the first example of jazz-rock music in Italy, admittedly influenced by Miles Davis and that legendary Bitches Brew that just two years earlier had shocked the jazz scene worldwide. Purists among the music critics were unhappy about such an 'unpure' mix but, thanks to incessant live activity, Perigeo managed to increase their popularity day by day, and they are today considered among the most important Italian Progressive Rock representatives. Abbiamo Tutti Un Blues Da Piangere was their second album, which continues a slow but steady evolution over a solid rock basis, moving from the jazz component to a growing fusion side, with an increasingly dominant search of melody. In the seven tracks of this LP the sound is still edgy and dark, thanks to a constant tension that never stops until the end of the last song.
