Angelo Noce Santoro - 3

Santoro 3 was recorded, mixed and produced by Angelo Noce Santoro in the ANS Studio Zwijndrecht between 1979-1981. The bonus tracks are recorded between 1985-1987. The release of the LP Santoro 3 was planned in the year 1981/1982 but was postponed due to the success of Santoro's surf album
"Land of the Pharaoh". Santoro 3 contains 15 instrumental rock songs, with funk, soul and Latin influences topped with a psychedelic twist. Just like his other solo projects (almost) all instruments played by Santoro himself and also the compositions of his own. An atmospheric album!

Angelo Noce Santoro - 8

This week I got an email from Angelo Noce Santoro. He recently found out that Fonos.nl no longer distributes some of his albums. It looks Fonos.nl is offline.

Therefore he asked me if I would share these albums thru this blog, so the albums can still be listened to. Ofcourse I will, so here's the first of 3 albums he wants to share with us all.
We thank him for being so kind.

Santoro was the bassist of Cosmic Dealer in the early 70's. Cosmic Dealer released the legendary psychedelic Nederpop longplayer Crystallization. Santoro has been busy since he wrote between 1979 and 1995 160 instrumental songs, of which there are already a lot released on LP and CD.
Santoro '8 'consists of 19 songs recorded between 1985 and 1995 that were not previously released. Santoro plays most of the instruments himself. The tracks are atmospheric instrumentals. 
The atmosphere within the tracks is a bit sixties, psychedelic, sometimes bluesy and all topped with a hint of surf sound.
