ItalianProg: I Santoni were formed in Florence in the second half of the 60's, the early line-up included bassist Marco Puggelli and drummer Wilson Lupi, later replaced by Giovanni Rondelli and Fabrizio Prussi.
In 1971 their first single was issued by Car Juke Box, Amico mio, which demonstrated the group's sound, based on the Hammond organ played by Bruno Mosti and the flutes and saxes of Bettazzi and Gorini.
The ultrarare only album by I Santoni was released in 1972, but like similar LP's from that period (I Boom, Laser, Raminghi, Il Mucchio) it's strongly influenced by a sixties sound.
The starting track Quelli come noi (also on single) reminds of Delirium's Jesahel with good flute work. The rest of the album is on a good level, though never particularly exciting.
The nine tracks (all in the 3-4 minute range with the sole exception of Verità at 5:33) show the good voice in evidence as was common practice in the 60's Italian pop.
The LP was not very successful, but gave the group the chance to play all over Italy and later in France and Switzerland, until their break-up in 1974.
