not lucio

Another Italian stallion today is featured on our blog.Lucio Battisti was one of the best artists to come out of Italy.His songs have been covered,remixed or re edited on numerous occasions but i think that the definitive attempt at hs imaterial was the take on his epic tune ''Il Valiero" by the dutch group ''The Chaplin Band'', also known for they track Madman's Discotheque.I ve never decided if i go fro the simplicity of the original by Lucio or the lush 11 minute orchestration of the Chaplin band.Anyway today my choice is the second one in it's original glorious un edited form.

The Chaplin Band-Il Veliero
