4 stars GLEEMEN (1970) is a good interesting pioneering Psychedelic/Progressive rock album made in Italy and a powerful band.

The band Gleemen and the album is quite influenced by the Psychedelic,Acid Hard Rock Blues sound of first Deep Purple,Vanilla Fudge,Cream and Jimi Hendrix Experience and with typical Italian Progressive rock arrangements of the early seventies.

Although the Psychedelic style of the band is never been put aside in their next album called ''Garybaldi'' Nuda that feels the influences and mostly in the album Astolabio (1973) and Bambibanda e Melodie (1974) etc etc.

The Psychedelic style characterizes this band especially the guitarist leader Bambi Fossati even in their most Progressive album that will come later with the name of ''Garybaldi''.

In the album Gleemen (1970) and in the band with very good musicians like Maurizio Cassinelli (drums), Angelo Traverso (bass), Lio Marchi (Hammond} stand out Bambi Fassati with his Stratocaster much on the line wave of Ritchie Blackmore, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.
