Deluxe 180gm vinyl LP reissue of the highly collectable Italian Acid Folk album in gatefold sleeve. Regarded as the link between Italian Acid Folk, Library music and Krautrock, Living Music was a collective of Italian Musicians, artists and poets active in the counterculture and student movement of Rome in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Taking their name and concept from the New York experimental theatre group 'Living Theatre' husband and wife duo Umberto Santucci and Gianfranca Montedoro hosted improvisational sessions at their home where they explored the concepts of communal expression through music and poetry. These experiments would lead to a recording session in which they set their psychedelic compositions to the poetry of Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. Their sole 1971 album for RCA's Italy's experimental imprint 'Free Dimension' is a phenomenal psychedelic excursion into acid folk, Tibetan chants, Indian drones, and avant-jazz all centered around the powerful voice of Gianfranca Montedoro. It has since become a highly sort after recording for folk and progressive collectors.
