Sweet Beat / Ray Ban
Famous for being the backing band to the most admired composers of the 70's, from Ennio Morricone to Piero Umiliani, I Marc 4 were responsible for having the most unique and peculiar "Italian soundtrack" style.
I Marc 4 recorded several albums on their 'Nelson' label between 1970 and 1976, in a variety of styles ranging from Italian Bossanova to Jazz, from hammond-beat to pure experimentalism, due to the incredible Antonello Vannucchi's use of his Hammond C3, to Roberto Podio's kicking rhythm section and the legendary Maurizio Maiorana on bass, not to forget the real soul of the band, their guitar player, Carlo Pes.
I Marc 4 were also the band who recorded 99% of Armando Trovajoli's compositions, and this series of limited 7"s in company sleeve, on the Radiation/Black Cat label, selects six hyper-groovy tunes off that repertoire.
