Jolly Roger Records announces the international release for a special live album from the legendary Il Rovescio della Medaglia, titled Contaminazione 2.0, on vinyl LP and CD (with three bonus tracks).


Il Rovescio della Medaglia was born in Rome in 1970 from an idea of guitarist Enzo Vita, and then Stefano Urso on bass, Gino Campoli on drums, and singer Pino Ballarini all joined the band. Unlike many prog-rock bands of the time (PFM, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Orme, Osanna), they chose not have a keyboard player, aiming to offer a straightforward hard rock sound with a strong live impact. Showing great skills with their instruments, they played live at many festivals in Italy. In 1971, Il Rovescio della Medaglia signed a deal with major RCA to record their first album, La Bibbia. Recorded live in only one day(!), it’s a “rock bomb” and immediately a triumph among critics and audiences.


In 1972, they recorded their second album, Io come Io, inspired by Hegel‘s philosophy. Then they started to tour (also outside Italy) and play live with their “rare” huge equipment: in fact, at the time, owning more than 10,000 watts of power was a thing reserved for few groups. At their shows, audiences were hit by a sonic avalanche! In 1973, Luis Enriquez Bacalov, famous orchestra conductor and composer of many motion-picture soundtracks (he won a Oscar with Troisi‘s Il Postino ), contacted the band to propose to work together on a new album that would melt rock to symphonic music. For Bacalov, it was the third experience like this, after the previous successes with New Trolls (Concerto Grosso) and Osanna (Milano Calibro 9). The result of this cooperation was the album Contaminazione. It’s considered a milestone of Italian progressive rock, taking inspiration from J.S. Bach’s preludes and fugues while the lyrics tell the alleged theme of a Scottish son not recognized by the great Austrian composer. It was a worldwide success - so high that RCA also released an English-language version with the title Contamination .


The pinnacle of this is a monumental live recording of 1973‘s classic Contaminazione album, now being presented by Jolly Roger Records as Contaminazione 2.0 . Recorded in San Galgano, near Siena (Italy), in September 2018 in an ancient abbey from the 1200 without a roof, the setting is a magical place and a location worthy location of Il Rovescio della Medaglia‘s timeless music. Suitably for this special occasion, the performance includes a string quartet as well as Vittorio De Scalzi (New Trolls) on flute one track.
