Biglietto per l'Inferno has always been regarded as one of the best italian prog albums ever, and for this reason is very difficult to find.
Early promotional copies of the album contained a release sheet with information on band members.
As many of the Trident label releases, this was counterfeited in the late 80's, a very similar issue to the original but easy to identify if you know its distinctive elements. See the Trident page for details and avoid buying it if you're not sure. Some dealers' descriptions don't help at all!!!
The album also had a vinyl reissue in mid 90's, some of these copies are still easy to find in italian record fairs at low prices, but be warned if you don't know where to look at!!!
The cover of this reissue is on a rough cardboard and the jumping man picture looks bigger, with the hand on the top right corner missing.. The name Biglietto per l'Inferno is on the left side of the cover and slightly bigger than the original one, that was on the bottom side of the cover.
The back cover contains the song titles that are not on the original.
These reissues also had a negative colour Trident label, with black writing on white background.
An official vinyl reissue has finally been released in 2005 by BTF.
Second album Il tempo della semina was recorded in 1975 but, due to Trident label closing, it was never released until 1992 when it appeared on Mellow label, both on vinyl and CD.
A single taken from the new album also planned for release on Trident was withdrawn and never officially issued. Promo copies are rumoured to exist.
