3 stars Gino D'Eliso was born in Trieste (near italian-yugoslavian border) in 1951 and made his debut in music business in 1976, during the decline of classic prog period.

He's not well known and it's a pity 'cause he's a very interesting artist with strong eclectic vocation.

His third album, SANTI ed EROI is a good example of what he himself defined "mitteleurock": an interesting mix between classic rock (with new-wave touches) and eastern-european influences (good use of brass), all in a singer-songwriter style.

Just listen to (and compare) songs as (among others) the biting opener "Quelli Pił Belli", the balkanic "Casa Mia (Cuĉa Moja)", the energetic title track, the eclectic "Iole Antica Iole", the elegant "L'Ora del Tč".

He's helped by other many capable musicians such, for example: violinist Lucio "Violino" Fabbri (PFM), bass players Bob Callero (OSAGE TRIBE, DUELLO MADRE, IL VOLO ...) and Paolo Donnarumma (CLAUDIO ROCCHI, ROBERTO COLOMBO ...), sax player Claudio Pascoli (PANGEA, PFM during Passpartł period). The latter sounds sometimes like Andy McKay (ROXY MUSIC).

A very good record.
