Fourth sensation-st,LP,1970,Italy

Another of those mystery groups that were so common in Italy at the end of the 60's, Fourth Sensation only appeared on an album released on the Ricordi International label, as if they were a foreign group. No names are mentioned on the cover though there are four musicians pictured on the back, but two of the band members may have been Vince Tempera (later with The Pleasure Machine and Il Volo) and Ares Tavolazzi (Area).All the tracks are composed by Massimo Catalano (that was one of The Flippers, a very popular beat band of the early 60's).
Musically speaking the album has the same style as The Underground Set or Blue Phantom, a totallly instrumental psych-influenced acid-jazz sound, with the Hammond organ in evidence. The ten tracks have all women names.
From:http://www.italianprog.com/a_fourthsensation.htm
This album is more typical of the instrumental psych/blues/jazz tinged library film/TV music, with roller rink organ and half Les Paul era electric leads/half psychedelic fuzz.
