I was not completely thrilled with this 1972 album by Formula 3. It might have been the absolutely disgusting and crudely drawn cover art that turned me off initially, although I think it has more to do with the music. Oh well, so much for every 1970s Italian prog album being excellent. This release features Alberto Radius (who went on to much better things with Il Volo) on bass, (usually distorted) electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and vocals; Gabriele Lorenzi on Hammond organ, mini moog, solina string synthesizer, and acoustic piano; and Tony Cicco on drums. There are three lengthy tracks on the album including Sognando e Risognando (10'42"), L'Ultima Foglia (11'51"), and Aeternum (11'31"). At 5'09", the fourth track Storia di un Uomo e una Donna (History of a man and a woman?) qualifies as the pop song on the album. Unfortunately, the sources of the pop song were drawn from 1950's American pop and R&B, right down to the falsetto back-up vocals and calculated vocal histrionics. It is really not all that great a song and the falsetto vocals do not help one bit. With respect to the longer (and proggier) pieces, there is some good Hammond organ playing (it sounds ELP-ish at times), excellent acoustic piano work, very cool synthesizer sounds, decent guitar work, and OK playing by the drummer. Sorry to say, although there are hints of greatness here and there, the longer compositions are generally not terribly interesting. The remastering of the album is pretty good however, and includes the reproduction of the original LP format along with great sound quality, although liner notes and photos are absent. All in all, while this album may not be the best in the Italian prog scene, it is certainly not completely awful. If you are as prog obsessed as I am, you will want to get this album, although you may want to get a (cheaper) used copy instead.

El trabajo mas experimental del grupo.
Muy maduro con una ambientación muy sugerente.
Una de las producciones mas ambiciosas por lo que es también uno de sus discos mas extraños.
Música onírica que se aleja de la anécdota creando pasajes llenos de imágenes.
Muy recomendable para aquellos que no se conforman con melodías y ritmos solamente agradables

Formula 3 was an Italian trio consisting of two future Il Volo members, Gabriele Lorenzi on keyboards and Alberto Radius on bass and guitars. Toni Cicco was the drummer for this trio, and all three are credited to handling vocals. Sognando e Risognando was originally released in 1972 on the Numero Uno label (same label as PFM and Il Volo), and was their third album. None of their four albums are supposed to be alike, but this one is recommended if you like such bands as ELP and PFM. Gabriele Lorenzi played Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, piano, and an early string synth. The album mostly consists of suites, for example, the opening cut, which is the title track, is a suite in four movements. You get some Emerson-like Hammond organ, and many of the vocal passages remind me of PFM. There are also some rather experimental passages that lead up to the three part "L'Ultima Foglia". "Storia di un Uomo e Una Donna" is quite a departure from the rest of the album, because it's a straightforward Italian pop song, not particularly progressive, but still not bad. The band then goes back to progressive territory with the four part "Aeternum". Certainly this isn't the most original album on the face of the planet, the PFM and ELP influences are rather obvious, but if you like Italian prog, you'll like this album.
