Reissued for the first time on LP, 1971's About Time was the Ping Pong debut album. Founded by Alan Taylor from The Casuals, it was one of the first bands in Italy (based in Bologna) to be inspired by the British sound of the period moving between late '60s psychedelic rock and the jazzy prog such Jethro Tull, Tonton Macoute, Camel, and Caravan. Ten tracks all sung in English delicate and exceptionally well performed with warm precision, enthusiasm and great energy in which the excellent musicians highlight their abilities: Celso Valli, who will then participate in many other productions of various genres, organ and piano; Mauro Falzoni - acoustic and electric guitar, vocals; Paride Sforza - sax and flute (foreshadowing a signature sound from Italy like Osanna, P.F.M., Delirium, Quella Vecchia Locanda and many others); Alan Taylor - bass and vocals; Vittorio Volpe (previously in I Meteors and later Paolo Conte's steady drummer) - drums (long solo on "Funny Wife"). This album represents the departure of the golden age of Italian progressive music.
