Gianni Mazza - Sospesi Del Traffico

Here's a production music classic by the Italian composer Gianni Mazza. It has everything you want from library psychedelia, with the trademark swirling organ and a menacing bass riff, but there's so much more to it than that. Take the drum break for instance: far from being a exploratory solo it's there to ratchet up the tension. But most impressive of all is the guitar. Sospesi Del Traffico opens sounding for all the world like a prime Johnny Marr cut. Amazing to think that this dates back to the 1971 album La Città N°2.
