By far the masterpiece is the combined album of sails on the sea, the bottom one, which came out in 1977. It's shocking how masterfully progressive and inventive all the music is from beginning to end, equally shocking how generically disappointing the remainder (8 others) of the albums are. Even the cover is beautiful. I guess that's just the way it is, and the way it's gonna be, when it comes to this genre of library music. As we all already knew.
Note the involvement of Oscar Rocchi, a huge favourite (his masterpiece of course was Magic Keys), and Fabor on some of these albums. Barigozzi + Fabor's Synthetronics is possibly the most popular and most re-requested post ever on this blog. Go figure.
I really can't say enough about Vele Sul Mare though. The extreme beauty of Porto da Lavigna, one of many extremely beautiful tracks on here:
