Il Rovescio Della Medaglia - IO COME IO (Medallion Picture) ORIGINAL First pressing Psych Prog Rock Fuzz Guitar ITALY 1972 This is the rarest version (of 3) with a picture reproducing the medallion.

A rare original piece   You make the price, NO reserve here!
NOTE: The gatefold cover contains a single sheet glued in the centre, which has the lyrics printed on the back. Three different versions (Without the bronze/brass medallion) exist of the front side of this sheet, see the pictures below: -the first one is almost completely black on the front side and the sheet can be folded in four parts; this was the one used to contain the bronze medallion; -a second one has a large picture of the band on front, and this can be viewed through the centre hole on the cover;  -a third one, (THIS) the rarest of them all, has a picture reproducing the medallion that can be seen through the hole.

Rewiew:  Inspired by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel this album (eng title sound as 'I as I') is the 2nd album by RDM. And 'Io Come Io' is one of the first Heavy Metal album of history. This album has everything to satisfy every hard working italian prog rock band lover! Each of the four songs making up this album contains plenty of complex and heavy riffing (both by the guitar and a marvellous distorted bass in a constant and extremely dynamic dialogue), some of which seem to be recorded ten/fifteen years later. Finally it is necessary to add that by its conception of the chromatist, to give to each line unaccustomed amplitude and elegance, excels polyphonic refinement, combined with an incessant and fierce rate. And all the contained songs are characterized by a capable structure, where melody prevails and where the group is pleased in valorizing the different sonorous planes, the games and the rings of the instrument as well as the baroque interaction of the guitar and the bass which they obviously denote the influence of musicians like J. S..Bach or Vivaldi, and who one does not recognize them by the so aggressive form to touch causes them that this it is an essential piece of any Progressive collection. (Progarchives)
