Opera Prima by Italian duo Rustichelli & Bordini is an excellent keyboard-dominated symphonic album from 1973. The simplest way to describe the music here is to imagine ELP with the addition of a Mellotron and a gravel-throated Italian vocalist. This album is almost up there alongside Tarkus and Trilogy, and wipes the floor with just about everything else ELP did. The main issue with Opera Prima seems to be the vocals, which are something of an acquired taste. To be blunt keyboards player Paolo Rustichelli has a particularly gruff, ugly singing voice.

Film composer Carlo Rustichelli's son, Paolo Rustichelli hooked up with future Cherry Five drummer Carlo Bordini to record this album, Opera Prima, originally released in 1973 on RCA. What's really interesting about this album is all the music is performed by Paolo Rustichelli and Carlo Bordini, with absolutely no one else helping. Rustichelli handles vocals, as well as all the great analog keyboards you come to expect from the 1970s: Hammond organ, piano, Mellotron, ARP 2600, EMS Synthi A, with of course, drums from Bordini.
