3 stars This group It was an Italian underground Psychedelic rock band in the late sixties and early seventies with great live consents.

With new lin-up changes the band is consecrated with the name ''I Raminghi'' in 1970 led by bass player and vocalist ''Franco Mussita'' and begin their road.

''I Raminghi'' landed in 1970 in a small Italian records relabel called ''Bentler'' owned by ''Gualtiero Guerrini'', ''I Raminghi'' released before one single ''Come Viviamo'' B side ''Vedi Tuo Padre'' (1970).

The song ''Vedi Tuo Padre'' will be included on their album ''Lungo IL Cammino Dei Raminghi''(1971).

In the same year (1971) another single ''Buio Mondo Nero E Giallo'' B Side ''Partire'', both extracted from their album.

The album is quite Psychedelic sound with Progressive rock elements and arrangements of the early 70s that characterize the songs and also with tipical italian atmospheres and melodies which makes the album difference ferent from the British bands of the same genre Psych/Progressive where ''I Raminghi'' took inspiration.

This album is quite original even though the band is still influenced by the psychedelic fuzz sound of the late 60's but that's what characterizes their sound.

Unfortunately the band did not have the right promotional support by the small records label ''Bentler'' and its limited edition of the album making the band ''I Raminghi'' unnoticed to the big audience and specialized critics of that time.

The band released a new single in (1975) and ''I Raminghi'' will continue their career live until the second half of the 70's and then slip up the band.

''I Raminghi'' was a band that deserved to make a second album and solidly define their trademark in the Progressive scene, but anyway ''Il Lungo Cammino Dei Raminghi'' it remains in times like a good Progressive albums.

Three and a half Stars, (***1/2).

Very beautiful the new Italian vinyl reissue from ''Vinyl Magic/'' in a faithful reproduction of the original release, with a 30x30cm mini-poster, 180g trasparent LP and a bonus track, completely unheard song, "Non Farlo".
