Locanda Delle Fate Live is a live album by Italian prog rock band Locanda Delle Fate which was recorded in 1977 but not released until 1994.
I don’t know much about this group except that they recorded a terrific debut studio album in 1977 called Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amani Piu. It’s highly recommended to anyone who likes symphonic prog and doesn’t mind the singing in Italian. I don’t understand it but that hasn’t stopped me enjoying opera.
Locanda Delle Fate Live
1. Profumo di colla bianca (8:17)
2. Non chiudere a chiave le stelle (3:32)
3. Forse le lucciole non si amano più (9:32)
4. La Giostra (7:31)
5. Cercando un nuovo confine (7:25)
6. Sogno di Estunno (4:47)
7. Vendesi saggezza (9:31)
La Giostra is a previously unreleased song with the remaining songs from Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amani Piu.
I’ve read that this is from a radio broadcast and the sound is dodgy which is a shame.

It’s going to be quite hard to find. To help you to find the album quickly and easily, I’ve given you the following links:
It’s still worth checking around on the websites to make sure that there isn’t a more up-to-date or less expensive option.
The group have another live album called Bloom Live which was recorded in 2010 which is also dominated by songs from the debut album. The recording quality on this is very good.
My only concern is whether you should get the studio album Forse Le Lucciole Non Si Amani Piu instead. I have to admit that I bought it when it was the only Locanda album available and I haven’t felt the urge to invest in either of their live albums.
It’s also got a great prog rock album cover.
