This is an album released in 1979 by Alan Sorrenti, a vocalist from Naples, Italy, whose early acid-folk albums were introduced in the guidebook "Obscure Sound: 640 Great Soundscapes". This is the Japanese version of the album, which was released in 1981 with English lyrics. As mentioned above, in their early works, they were doing progressive oriented psychedelic folk, but from the late 1970s, they gradually shifted to a more pop style. This album was recorded in the U.S. and was completely transformed into adult-oriented disco. B3, a breezy AOR track with Sorrenti's soprano voice matching the transparent medium funk with horns and strings, is very pleasant. In addition to the melancholic electric piano and female chorus on the sexy El Coco-like disco number A4, there are many other light-hearted adult-oriented disco tracks on this album.
