    Scented Gardens of Mind: 
    This Basque group are best known among collectors for their first album, which is among the rarest from Europe in its original first press with a plastic window front sleeve. It's not common for late 70's rare albums to fetch amounts beyond 1,000 Euro and particularly not those falling into the 'symphonic' genre, which this arguably does. Itoiz is a soft, graceful album with poetical qualities, not least the 10-minute track "Goizeko Deiadar". Itoiz sing in their own tongue, which makes the lyrics incomprehensable for everyone else ! Piano and artificial strings are frequently used, augmented by organ, flute and sudden bursts of lead guitars. The pompous arrangements remind one of Genesis and Camel, although Itoiz also draw from their own folklore, as on the beautiful and emotional "Errotaberri". The tender and passionate (or even pathetic) vocals are similar to certain Italian bands. The status of this album is understandable, although those looking for powerful rock must search elsewhere!
    Ezekiel (1980) was a more up-beat affair, moving more towards folk and jazz than symphonic rock. Synthesizers were omitted and sax and violin added. The compostions were not quite up to the standard of the previous album, but are still fairly good.
    Alkolea (1982) followed more or less the same path as Ezekiel (some tracks were closer to conventional soft rock but still satisfying). Itoiz continued to make albums in the 80's, although these are quite commercial and consequently of little interest.
