La Messa Dei Giovani (RRC RCP 702) 1968? Italy *

 

 

 

 

La Messa Dei Giovani

 

 

 

If you’re a fan of The Beret’s The Mass For Peace album on the Avant Garde label, here’s your opportunity to hear it in its original Italian format. There are actually three different bands involved here: Angel & The Brains, IBarrittas (i.e., “The Little Berets”) and The Bumpers — and all of them are fresh with that mid-60’s garage rock spirit. This performance has much more of a raw electric feel, without any of the various orchestrations that tend to detract on the English version. Nope, it’s just the electric guitars, bass, drums, organ and the guys singing through selections like ‘Gloria’, ‘Credo’, ‘Sanctus’, ‘Agnus Dei’ and ‘Communio’. Comes in a unipak gate-fold cover. I see a 1966 date mentioned on the back cover, though I can’t tell if that’s when it was actually released. All of songs from the Avant Garde release are on here, with the exception of the Martin Luther King song ‘Don’t Kill’. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
