3 stars Italian one-shot band De De Lind hailed from Milan and were found in 1969, named after the famous 60's Playboy model of the same name.The three early singles saw a band starting as a pure Pop/Rock band and developing slowly to a Hard Rock ensemble.The line-up was singer Vito Paradiso, multi-instrumentalists Matteo Vitolli and Gilberto Trama, bassist Eddy Lorigiola and drummer Ricky Rebajoli, a mid-60s member of Beat groups New Dada and I Nuovi Angeli.By 1973, when the band released their sole album with the ultra-long title ''Io non so da dove vengo e non so dove mai andrņ. Uomo č il nome che mi han dato'', De De Lind had adapted a full-blown Hard/Psych/Prog style.

An interesting album for the most of its part, ''Io non so da dove...'' offers moments of Hard Rock delight with major progressive and folk influences, though the harder moments are more dominant.The longer cuts are obviously the most interesting.Here the hard rockin' grooves, led by powerful electric guitars and the vocals of Paradiso, alternate with gentle acoustic parts filled with delicate folkish flute work and sometimes nice sax solos.These parts seem to be possibly the best ones with the band being capable of creating some trully atmospheric soundscapes with strong psychedelic and singer/songwriter inspirations.OSANNA and JUMBO are good reference points.Organs are sporadically appearing without even notice them.The shorter compositions either follow a typical Hard Rock vein or sound similar to the above forms, though a bit more compressed, with good guitar/flute interplays.The album sounds a bit dated and sterile nowadays, but should have been a really good entry back in 1973.

Te band continued to perform live for sometime with new drummer Fabio Rizzato replacing Rebajoli, before splitting up.All members disappeared from the scene except Vito Paradiso, who had a brief solo career at the end of the 70's.

A good album next to the likes of JUMBO, OSANNA, I CALIFFI or CAPITOLO 6.Decent Hard Progressive Rock with lots of driving flutes and a high energy, but not much diversity or flexibility.Overall recommended.
