Tom Hayes 18-Jan-2001 Groupe X At a Glance

Interesting, and very obscure, Italian band with 2 albums. Frrrrrigidaire is unique in the annals of the vast Italian progressive rock scene. Instrumental, jazzy and at times even a lounge sound pervades. The album is a fun listen and I can imagine being a minor hit with the those that engage in the Retro-club lounge scene or those that seek out albums that would make a great soundtrack to 70's films. Hardly an essential item but still worth a spin and can be considered a good nightcap type of album. No reissue exists of this, so a high priced original is the only option. However, the gimmix foldout cover is a reason to seek out for vinyl collectors.

I have yet to hear Out/Off as of this writing.
