Ping Pong biography
Founded in Emilia-Romagna, Italy in 1970 - Disbanded in 1974 - Reformed later as "Bulldog"

Italian act PING PONG is another example of a 70's Italian band of which little is known. It is believed that they formed in 1971, at that time consisting of Mauro Falzoni (guitars, vocals), Celso Valli (keyboards), Paride Sforza (saxophone, clarinet), Alan Taylor (bass, vocals) and Vittorio Volpe (drums), and they issued their debut album About Time the same year.

Two years later vocalist Giorgio Bertolani joined and contributed to their second full length production Ping Pong in 1973. It is generally believed that the band disbanded shortly after this. Five of the six members would reappear in Italian band Bulldog in 1975, which proved to be another short-lived unit.

Review by Kingsnake

3 stars I don't understand the low rating for this record.

It's a fun record, with some Jethro Tull-influences. It's not essential but okay to listen to. I stumbled upon this LP via youtube, so I haven't bought the record. I don't know if it's easy to obtain, but I wouldn't spend 1000 euros on discogs to get the lp.

The album contains some lightweight early seventies symphonic rock with lots and lots of flute. The songs are rather short, wich maybe is why not many prog-enthousiasts want to pick this album up. But I had a fun time listening to it. So I rate this one 3,5* (rounded down).

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
