Saino, France


Saino - s/t. 1982 private.

There was a time in the 1980s and early 90s when Musea had all of these great private French LPs for cheap. I bought many, including this gem. It's just too bad they didn't subsequently reissue it on CD. It's one of the better albums in the style.

Far superior to most instrumental fusion albums coming from Europe during this time, Saino provides much more firepower than expected, plus the melodic content is very high - keeping this from a cold technical academic exercise. Five piece group that employs both a lead and rhythm guitar, which seems to be the magic formula that propels Saino's music forward. Apparently they have a second album, though it isn't touted as high.

Priority: 2

I do have the LP, but I'm away from the collection for about a month. I'll try to remember to look it up at that time!

Thanks again for the compliments on the site.
