I Santoni - Noi. 1972 Italy

Noi is primarily dominated by traditional Italian singer-songwriter and pop psychedelic elements, but it only tells part of the story. There are also some complex instrumental charts played by sax, flute, and Hammond organ that gives it a strong whiff of the progressive rock movement that was just about to sweep Italy for the next 5 years. If you love the Dolce Acqua album by Delirium, and would like to hear a theoretical precursor album to it - then I Santoni's Noi is likely to satisfy at a high level. Those coming here looking for the next early 70s Italian progressive rock monster will need to move on to the next one on your list.
