A sort of supergroup, as most of their members came from well-known bands, Samadhi were formed after the split of Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno by singer Regoli and guitarist Civitenga, along with keyboard player Sabatini (from Free Love and Kaleidon), Aldo Bellanova from Teoremi on bass and drummer Ruggero Stefani (L'Uovo di Colombo), and two other members.
Despite the impressive pedigree of the musicians the album is nice though not a masterpiece, mixing good prog influences with some jazz and even pop, the best of the seven tracks being the closing L'ultima spiaggia with religious text. The beautiful lyrics were written by poet Enrico Lazzareschi.
The band split soon after the LP due to the absolute lack of interest both by press and public.
Sabatini and Stefani later formed Mediterraneo with former Flea bass player Carlo Pennisi and guitarist Francesco Bruno (from Kaleidon and Toni Esposito group), but this shortlived band only recorded some tapes for a never released album around 1977.
Guitarist Nanni Civitenga was even involved in the short-lived Crystals project, he later appeared on a latin music library album, Original movie themes by New age group (Fonit UST 7016) released in 1978.
