This is very melodious symphonic progressive rock music with liberal use of flute, acoustic guitar, piano, violin, synthesizer, Mellotron and organ. Bass and percussion are good on this album too. Then there are the calm, smooth Italian vocals which add to the enjoyment of the music. Some parts are purely acoustic whilst others are very progressive rock. The tracks on Per Un Amico, plus È Festa from PFM's first album Storia Di Un Minuto, were rehashed with English lyrics (except Il Banchetto, which stayed in Italian) for the PFM album Photos Of Ghosts which is perhaps better known outside Italy. If you are familiar with Photos of Ghosts you will recognise the music on Per Un Amico instantly. The original singing in Italian is very pleasant indeed.

Although progressive rock music is generally regarded as peculiarly English in style and origin, Premiata Forneria Marconi (P.F.M) are, surely, Italy's leading proponents of the genre over the last 5 decades and have produced many superb albums, particularly those released in the early 1970s. 'Per Un Amico' (P.F.M's 2nd release in their native tongue) is a superbly fashioned work and certainly gives the English 'prog boys' a run for their money. The opener 'Appeno Un Po' gives a good indication of the brilliance to follow and builds to an impressive climax whilst 'Generale is a punchy instrumental [this track acquired lyrics when it featured on the English language equivalent of this LP ('Photos of Ghosts') and was re-titled 'Mr. 9 'till 5']. The title track is also well-crafted but, for me, the best of the 5 featured tracks is the inspired 'Il Banchetto' which has a gloriously offbeat middle section displaying shades of Gentle Giant's quirkiness. 'Geranio', which rounds off proceedings, is another lovely piece of music. P.F.M use keyboards, especially the Mellotron, in a highly imaginative way and the balance between slow/subtle and fast/furious sections within a composition is genial.

If you like your progressive rock with lots of twists and turns, twiddly and complex time signatures and a smattering of acoustic instruments such as flute, guitar and violin, you should sign up here and enter the magical kingdom of P.F.M now.

Feeling a sad lack of decent progrock these days, I have ventured back into the past in search of the likes of Yes, Floyd, Renaissance, but which I managed to miss at the time.

It does it for me .. I shall be buying more of their music
