This Milan group performed as a support band to Banco on their 1975 Italian tour. Their first album contained decent, song-based progressive rock similar to PFM. Motown obviously saw a potential in Libra and signed the group on a contract for nine albums! The only result was a revised version (in English) of their first album. After starving in the USA for some years, Libra returned to Italy and later created the soundtrack to the movie "Schok", which also became their final album.
