Mercante Senza Fiori. This song is by Equipe 84 and appears on the album Sacrificio (1974). Strade senza tempo,la tua voce ormai nel vento,un inverno è già lontano. No, non mi aspettare,mi dispiace devo andare,io cercavo di fermarti. Quella notte anche Dio mi abbandonò,lungo un fiume mi lasciò. Nessuno si fermava,nessuno rispondeva. La gente si vendevae c'era chi comprava. Mercanti senza fiori,guarivano i dolori.
Equipe 84 were one of the most famous Italian beat bands of the 1960s. Like Giganti and Dik Dik they made a brief but fruitful foray into the burgeoning RPI scene of the early 1970s. This album would be their most determined (and only real) effort at joining the scene and while they never truly succeeded in being recognized as such, it is a wonderful album nonetheless. It features good songwriting, great melodies and vocals, and lots of typical RPI instrumentation like organ, piano, flute, and strings, all very tastefully arranged. Side two begins with the wonderful "Mercante Senza Fiori" featuring dramatic songwriting and superb guitar strokes, along with some nice use of strings and cool bass lines. Such warm, inviting music! "Se C'e" mixes an upbeat ditty with a slower and gorgeous melodic vocal over a huge keyboard sound. Dicono" closes the album with more thunder. 219 SEK. Tell a friend Inform me.

Side two begins with the wonderful "Mercante Senza Fiori" featuring dramatic songwriting and superb guitar strokes, along with some nice use of strings and cool bass lines. Dicono" closes the album with more thunder effects and a big, lush keyboard intro. The remaining tracks are less proggy and more typical to Italian melodic pop, but even those are handled with so much class, with marvelous melodies and interesting arrangements
EQUIPE 84. 1964-69 Maurizio Vandelli (vocals, guitar) Franco Ceccarelli (guitar, vocals) Victor Sogliani (bass, vocals) Alfio Cantarella (drums, vocals). 1970 Ceccarelli and Cantarella replaced by: Mario Totaro (keyboards) Franz Di Cioccio (drums). With Casa mia, in 1971, Equipe 84 returned to a typical song album, but their most creative time had clearly passed. D. ekyll & M. yde, from 1973 marks their passage to Ariston, and is another pop album, with the single exception of the jazzy instrumental D. ekyll. Last album, Sacrificio in 1974 has again some good instrumental passages, even if the basic influence is still melodic pop. They were helped here by drummer Paolo Siani from Nuova Idea. The group kept playing and recording until 1977, a late concert is included in the live CD released in mid 90's.
