A successful act in their home land, they came to international attention when they signed to Emerson, Lake and Palmer’s label Manticore in 1975. Their first album for the label, Banco was a fine work and featured reworked material with English vocals that had originally featured on their earlier Italian albums.
This new edition of the album has been newly remastered and marks the albums British debut on CD and continues the comprehensive series of releases of the classic Manticore catalogue.
