Fede speranza caritá
Jet (or J.E.T. as their name was usually written) were formed in Genova at the beginning of the 70’s from a previous band of the same name that also included later members of another pop band, Ricchi e Poveri.
Their first album, Fede speranza carità, released in 1972, derives from a radical turn in their musical style, to the then popular progressive rock, and is a very good album, with strong hard rock influences and falsetto vocals but with nice use of organ and a solid rhythm section, as in the long Sinfonia per un re that sometimes reminds of New Trolls’ multivocal parts and Il prete e il peccatore.
Fede speranza carità is a very rare album, and due to the small pressing and the delicate cover it’s almost impossible to find mint copies.
