I Cocai

Piccolo grande vecchio fiume - Style (CT 7165) 1977
CD reissue: Mellow (MMP 186) 1994

A minor band from Veneto that only released an album in 1977, with the five members' identities hidden behind fictitious names.

I Cocai were strongly influenced by the then-popular Italian commercial pop, producing the soft-prog sound with a few interesting moments, such as the 8-minute long "Le mie storie", performed in English despite the Italian title.
