1 stars Short review ... I have to do it. Even if only to point out that there is no trace of Progresive in this compilation. However, it must be said that, as I will write, this Split compilation (I Giganti & I Nuovi Angeli) contains excellent music.

I Giganti: Beat music recorded between 1966 and 1969. For Italy it is excellent music. Of course there is more of a US derivation than an English one. But, in the end it's not bad.

I nuovi Angeli: Beat band, originally. Then it passed to a form of POP similar to Schlager which had great success in the 70s thanks to Philips and Polydor. Here, however, the songs are all new recordings from 2000.

What else to add? I Giganti are presented to us with songs closely related to the Italian Beat movement and not always aged in an excellent way. I nuovi Angeli are presented with 6 songs ("Donna felicitÓ" and "Singapore" above all) that despite being new versions are really all to be tasted. But, after all, this compilation I don't know who to really recommend it here in ProgArchives.
