Quella Vecchia Locanda

A first for this category: two album covers in one post, and both in the classic seventies album style spread of front and back. Quella Vecchia Locanda was one of the legendary Italian progressive rock bands of the early seventies. Although they only released two studio albums, these were strong enough to put them at a similar appreciation level as PFM and Banco. Both albums also have excellent covers, with the first one (Quella Vecchia Locanda, 1972) more fairytale-like and the second one (Il tempo della gioia, 1974) more imaginative. Incidentally, the second one has featured by itself before in the blog (front only). Both designs were credited to Kazvnori Akita.
