Pooh are an Italian pop band formed in 1966 in Bologna.

Over the course of their career they have sold over 100 million records. Pooh's original members were Bob Gillot, Riccardo Fogli, Valerio Negrini and Dodi Battaglia. In the summer of 1966, Roby Facchinetti replaced Gilot and in 1971 the band recruited Stefano D'Orazio, the drummer of the Naufraghi, to replace Negrini, who stayed as main lyricist. The most enduring line-up was established in 1973, when Fogli left the group and was replaced by Red Canzian, a progressive rock guitarist who quickly learned to play the bass. In 2009 drummer Stefano D'Orazio announced his intention to leave the band after the summer tour. D'Orazio has been replaced by English drummer Steve Ferrone although the band officially remains a trio. On the occasion of their 50th anniversary, Stefano D'Orazio and Riccardo Fogli returned.

In 1971 the Pooh go to CBS and producer Giancarlo Lucariello come the first great satisfaction. The single strong desire for her lands to the number one ranking in two weeks. The same happens with Thought, which sold over one million copies (despite all consider it a piece of love, the song speaks of a prisoner). Both singles come in the South American standings, leaping immediately to the first places, selling in a few months 450,000 and 1,200,000 copies respectively. [6] Opera released the album first, an LP that fuses the symphonic music (as in the title track) to the Italian melody.

Valerio Negrini leaves the group, while remaining as a lyricist. It is replaced by Stefano D'Orazio, the Roman drummer who had previously played in bands such as The Shipwreck and The Spot. The Pooh record some of their songs in English: All the three become The Suitcase and CBS decides to add to a collection that includes the best artists of their vast catalog. Strong desire for her comes second to the Festivalbar.

In 1972 it still says the worldwide success, thanks to singles impressive and dramatic as the two of us in the world and in the soul (I will bear back with you), what can be said about you (back when a she goes away). The record company is undecided about which of two single focus more. So, not to make a wrong interpretation or Dodi in two of us in the world and in the soul nor the increasingly sluggish Riccardo to be born with you, she decides to publish the 45s as a double A-side, choosing a white cover for cover with only the group name in the foreground and the picture of the four.

To be born with you is reserved the role of song to be included in the jukebox, while two of us in the world and the soul will become the song devoted to radio promotion; from London comes the Minimoog synthesizer, who makes a cameo appearance in this song. The Alessandra album marks an increased presence of Roby in item (up to that time had split especially Dodi and Riccardo) and sees for the first time the signing of Dodi Battaglia as composer of the music.

Because of the influence of Lucariello, the complex puts aside his instrumental skills to make way for this most elegant arches concert Franco Monaldi. Beyond that, on this record producer manages to impose (for the first and only time) the album is made up exclusively of love songs. This is a disc where it disappears almost entirely on the electric guitar, replaced mainly by acoustic arpeggios Dodi, there are no "just" guitar is impeding the ups and downs of 12 orchestral pieces of which consists of the disc.

The item offers Roby suffered interpretations as in my father one evening or our difficult age. At this point Richard Sheets decides to leave the group to pursue a solo career. In his view, in fact, the producer tends to privilege the voice of Dodi at the expense of his. The group seems about to melt, when after endless selections held in the laundry room of a hotel in the Tuscan-Emilian (beginning of 1973), to Roncobilaccio is chosen a new bassist, Red Canzian, guitarist of a band progressive, Capsicum Red, which assets could boast two singles and a top-rated 33 laps. Red Canzian Pooh met in 1971 at the time of the Festivalbar, and after more than three hundred bassists undergo auditions, the group came to him that this young man to Treviso would have been ideal.

In 1973 he released Parsifal disc, LP complex and large instrumental and lyrical flow. Anticipated by the single You and I for other days and Infiniti us, this LP uniquely mixture in the Italian symphonic derivation of British pop with the sophisticated tunes of Roby Facchinetti (as Parsifal or homonymous year, the place, hour): if the musical style seems to direct them towards bulky comparisons such as Pink Floyd and Genesis, the choirs of the four report directly to the Beatles and the Bee Gees. The title track marks a major milestone in the history of the complex, as its second part is purely instrumental. This is perhaps the first piece of the group where the lead guitar Dodi reaches for evidence and quality of remarkable results.

The song Letter from Marienbad is chosen as B side of the single You and me for another day and left out of the album version 33 laps, although it is regularly included in the tracklist of stereo8 version of the same. In 1974, with the collection Pooh 1971-1974, closing an era of great achievements. Are included in the disc If you know, if you can, and if you want something for you still, used as side A of its 45 turns, which also include And I would. The songs, sorted according to a fairly rigid chronological order, point home how rapid was the musical maturation in the Pooh style in these four years. The two single still do not reach the success of the previous.

1975 is a year of transition. The heavy load of symphonic music and opera often dreamlike and difficult blend in two LP modest commercial success. A bit 'of our time better looks like an LP too difficult for the audience of Pooh, accustomed to fast songs outlet. The orchestra's massive use of tools like the harpsichord and long instrumental pieces certainly does not favor an easy transition Radio. They are not singles, but remain to remember songs like Eleonora my mother with the debut of D'Orazio as a lyricist and Time, a woman, the city, a piece of more than 10 minutes considered, for the length, the majesty and for a short instrumental queue as a kind of bis Parsifal.

Perhaps even poetry can sell as Parsifal: Lullaby, chosen to promote the album can barely get into the top 10 of the individual. [7] It must be said that the basic orchestral arrangements had been imposed by

2016 officially begins the celebrations for the fiftieth anniversary of the band and POOH, for the first time in five training in February will perform on stage of the Sanremo Festival while in March aired a special television in prime time on Rai 1 dedicated to the history of group. Followed by a series of extraordinary successes, from 4 sold out stadiums in June to the three sold out at the Arena of Verona, until you get to a long successful tour in stadiums of the major Italian cities. Now the historic band is entering the last concert in December, a last long embrace that will cross the whole of Italy and officially end on December 30 with the last concert in Bologna Before the goodbye to the scenes.

Tanta voglia di Lei - Pooh

Affidata alla voce di un giovane Dodi Battaglia, diventa una delle canzoni più popolari e rappresentative del quartetto. Tanta voglia di lei è la storia di un tradimento, il protagonista però pentitosi della scappatella con un'altra donna, decide di tornare dalla sua amata. Di particolare effetto l'introduzione strumentale, affidata ad una sontuosa orchestra di 22 archi, suggerita ai Pooh dall'arrangiatore del disco, Franco Monaldi.
Entrusted to the voice of a young Dodi Battaglia, it becomes one of the most popular songs and representative of the quartet. Strong desire for her is the story of a betrayal, the protagonist, however, repented of fling with another woman, she decides to return to his beloved. Particularly the instrumental introduction effect, entrusted to a sumptuous concert 22 arches, suggested to Pooh by the arranger of the album, Franco Monaldi.


Alessandra - Pooh

Forti del successo appena conseguito con i singoli dell'anno precedente, i Pooh realizzano stavolta un album accuratissimo, omogeneo ed arrangiato fastosamente. Il complesso deve comunque un grande tributo di gratitudine e autorità al produttore, il quale riesce, per la prima ed ultima volta, ad ottenere che tutto il disco abbia come unico filo conduttore la canzone d'amore. Ne traspare un'immagine di vita giovanile ostacolata dall'operato dei genitori (La nostra età difficile, Mio padre una sera), caratterizzata da amori che vanno improvvisamente in frantumi (Cosa si può dire di te?), con tanta voglia di rivincite (Io in una storia, Via lei via io) e anche molti dubbi e ripensamenti. Il brano guida è la famosissima Noi due nel mondo e nell'anima. Chiude il disco il brano Alessandra, dedicato alla nascita della prima figlia di Roby Facchinetti e fino a quel punto il pezzo più lungo della carriera del complesso.
L'arrangiamento degli archi dell'orchestra di Gianfranco Monaldi sottolinea con virtuosa energia il carattere emotivo dei testi, ricchi di fresca passionalità da ventenni (ma anche di delusioni cocenti). Dal punto del contributo dei quattro come strumentisti, questo l'album meno rock della storia dei Pooh: la chitarra elettrica di Battaglia compare solo in pochi pezzi, lasciando molto spazio all'orchestra ed evitando di eseguire veri e propri assoli. In compenso viene utilizzato una delle novità più importanti del pop anni settanta: il sintetizzatore Moog, strumento usato con una certa generosità, oltre che in Noi due nel mondo e nell'anima, in Mio padre, una sera.
Rispetto alla produzione dell'anno prima, costituisce una novità l'esordio di Dody Battaglia come compositore (portano la sua firma i tre brani Io in una storia, Signora e Via lei, via io).
L'album ha un successo notevole, superando di molto le vendite del precedente Opera prima (Vende 250.000 copie). Fra tutti i dischi del gruppo, è forse quello maggiormente orientato verso quello che secondo la casa discografica doveva essere il pubblico femminile, come quasi sembrano suggerire il titolo e la foto di copertina. La prima stampa del vinile contiene un cartoncino con le foto dei componenti del gruppo e i crediti del disco. In copertina sono riconoscibili Valerio Negrini e i professori d'orchestra che accompagnano il complesso.

Encouraged by the success achieved just with the individual in the previous year, Pooh album this time realize a very accurate, consistent and lavishly arranged. The complex has still a great tribute of gratitude to the authorities and the manufacturer, which can, for the first and last time, to get that whole disc's sole theme the love song. It shines an image of youthful life hindered by the work of parents (Our difficult age, my father one evening), characterized by love that suddenly shatters (What can you say about yourself?), With a great desire for revenge ( I in a story, Via her away I) and also many doubts and second thoughts. The track guide is the famous two of us in the world and in the soul. Closes the album the song Alessandra, dedicated to the birth of the first daughter of Roby Facchinetti and up to that point the longest piece of the complex career.
The arrangement of Gianfranco Monaldi orchestral strings emphasizes virtuous energy the emotional nature of the texts, fresh rich passion from their twenties (but also bitter disappointments). In terms of the contribution of the four instrumentalists, this album less rock the Pooh history: the Battle of electric guitar appears only in a few pieces, leaving plenty of space and avoiding the orchestra performing real solos. On the other hand is used one of the most important pop seventies news: the Moog synthesizer, instrument used with a certain generosity, as well as two of us in the world and in the soul, in my father one evening.
Compared to the prior year's production, it is new to the Dodi Battaglia debut as a composer (bear his signature the three songs I in a story, and Mrs. Via her away I).
The album was a great success, far surpassing sales of the previous First Film (sells 250,000 copies). Across all disks in the group, it is perhaps more oriented towards what according to the record company had to be the female audience, as most seem to suggest the title and the cover photo. The first printing of vinyl contains a card with pictures of members of the group and the credits of the disc. On the cover are recognizable Valerio Negrini and the orchestra musicians accompanying the complex.


Parsifal 1-2 - Pooh

Nel 1973 esce il disco Parsifal, un LP complesso e di ampio respiro strumentale e lirico. Anticipato dai singoli Io e te per altri giorni e Infiniti noi, questo LP miscela in maniera unica nel panorama italiano il pop sinfonico di derivazione britannica con le melodie sofisticate di Roby Facchinetti (come nell'omonima Parsifal o in L'anno, il posto, l'ora): se lo stile musicale sembra indirizzarli verso paragoni ingombranti come Pink Floyd e Genesis, i cori dei quattro riportano direttamente ai Beatles e ai Bee Gees. Il brano omonimo segna una tappa importante nella storia del complesso, in quanto la sua seconda parte è esclusivamente strumentale. È questo forse il primo pezzo del gruppo in cui la chitarra solista di Dodi raggiunge, per evidenza e qualità, dei notevoli risultati.

In 1973 he released Parsifal disc, LP complex and large instrumental and lyrical flow. Anticipated by the single You and I for other days and Infiniti us, this LP uniquely mixture in the Italian symphonic derivation of British pop with the sophisticated tunes of Roby Facchinetti (as Parsifal or homonymous year, the place, hour): if the musical style seems to direct them towards bulky comparisons such as Pink Floyd and Genesis, the choirs of the four report directly to the Beatles and the Bee Gees. The title track marks a major milestone in the history of the complex, as its second part is purely instrumental. This is perhaps the first piece of the group where the lead guitar Dodi reaches for evidence and quality of remarkable results.


Uomini Soli - Pooh

Uomini soli è un album dei Pooh uscito nel 1990. Viene aperto dal brano omonimo, vincitore del Festival di Sanremo. Il brano, per l'iniziativa attuata al Festival di quell'anno di far eseguire i brani in gara ad artisti stranieri, è stato eseguito anche in lingua inglese dalla cantante jazz Dee Dee Bridgewater con il titolo Angel of the night e un testo differente.

Single men is an album of Pooh was released in 1990. It opens with the title track, the winner of the Sanremo Festival. The song, for the effort made to that year's Festival to perform the songs in the race for foreign artists, was also performed in English by jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater with the title Angel of the night and a different text.


La donna del mio amico - Pooh

L'album Amici per sempre, del 1996, è un inno a uno dei più importanti dei sentimenti umani. Nella canzone che dà titolo alla raccolta i quattro cantanti ci raccontano la storia di una vita di affetto e solidarietà; un sentimento di stima e unione reciproca che va oltre ogni ostacolo, che resiste a qualsiasi rivoluzione: "Puoi alzare bandiere, litigare con Dio, cambiare famiglia e città... ma tra amici non c'è mai un addio!" Tra le pieghe dell'amicizia però fa capolino anche l'amore, che proprio a causa della fedeltà assoluta a un compagno di avventure diventa impossibile.

The album The Cure, 1996, is an ode to one of the most important of human feelings. In the song that gives title to the album the four singers tell the story of a life of love and solidarity; a feeling of mutual respect and unity that goes beyond any obstacle that resists any revolution: "You can raise flags, quarreling with God, changing family and the city ... but between friends there is never a goodbye!" Between the folds but friendship is also peeping love, that just because of absolute fidelity to a companion in adventure becomes impossible.


La casa del sole - Pooh

La casa del sole fu incisa anche da diversi artisti italiani e con un testo in italiano. Le musiche delle pubblicazioni italiane si rifanno perlopiù alla versione degli Animals. Da citare è La casa del sole dei Los Marcellos Ferial e di Riki Maiocchi: il testo, opera di Mogol e Vito Pallavicini, stravolge completamente il senso della canzone, trasformandola in una storia d'amore. Maiocchi incise anche un'altra versione dal titolo Non dite a mia madre scritta da Gigi Fiume, che venne censurata perché considerata una presunta istigazione al suicidio. In realtà la canzone parla chiaramente di un prigioniero nel braccio della morte, in attesa che venga eseguita la condanna. Nel 2008, i Pooh hanno inserito La casa del sole nel loro album Beat reGeneration.

The House of the Rising Sun was also recorded by several Italian artists and a text in Italian. The music of the Italian publication refer mainly to the Animals version. Another highlight is the house of the sun of Los Marcellos Ferial and Riki Maiocchi: the text, the work of Mogul and Vito Pallavicini, completely distorts the meaning of the song, turning it into a love story. engraved Maiocchi also another version entitled Do not tell my mother written by Gigi River, which was censored because it was considered an alleged incitement to suicide. In fact, the song speaks clearly of a prisoner on death row, waiting for the sentence to be carried out. In 2008, the Pooh have entered the house of the sun on their album Beat reGeneration.


In Silenzio - Pooh

Il brano è stato composto dal "duo di fabbrica" del gruppo, Roby Facchinetti e Valerio Negrini, ma nel 45 giri sia questa canzone sia Piccola Katy sono accreditate come testo a Pantros e come musica a Lee Selmoco, in quanto Negrini e Facchinetti non erano ancora iscritti alla Siae.
Canzone melodica di grande impatto, che dipinge atmosfere alla Gianni Morandi, viene inclusa dalla Vedette nell'album Contrasto, ritirato dal commercio dopo poche settimane dall'uscita, dopo la protesta del gruppo.
L'interpretazione del brano, nella versione originale è affidata a Riccardo Fogli, che ne esegue una sua versione riveduta, con arrangiamento orchestrale, nel suo disco omonimo del 1976, quando da 3 anni ha lasciato i Pooh.
Riproposta nei concerti dal vivo dal 1981, nel tour di Buona fortuna, insieme al medley di brani anni sessanta, In silenzio trova nuova linfa vitale dalla poderosa interpretazione, piano e voce, di Roby Facchinetti. I Pooh l'hanno riproposta, in versione studio dal 1990, versione che poi ha trovato spazio in alcune compilation degli anni novanta.

The song was composed by the "in" group factory duo, Roby Facchinetti and Valerio Negrini, but in the 45s is this song is Piccola Katy are accredited as text to Pantros and how music to Lee Selmoco, as Negrini and Facchinetti were not still enrolled at the SIAE.
Song great-melodic, depicting atmospheres to Gianni Morandi, is included in the album Contrast by Vedette, withdrawn from the market after a few weeks of release, after the protest group.
The interpretation of the song, in the original version is entrusted to Richard Sheets, who is running a revised, with orchestral arrangement, in his self-titled album of 1976, when after three years he left the Pooh.
Repeated in live concerts from 1981, in the tour of Good Luck, along with the medley of sixties songs, Silently find new life by the powerful interpretation, piano and vocals, Roby Facchinetti. I have revived the Pooh, studio version from 1990 version which then has found a place in some compilations of the nineties.


Col tempo con l'eta' nel vento - Pooh

Col Tempo con l'età nel vento is a song of the album Alessandra of the Italian group of Pooh, published in 1972 by the record company CBS. This is the first album the group with Stefano D'Orazio, and also the last in which collaborates Richard Sheets.

Col Tempo con l'età nel vento  è un brano dell'album Alessandra del gruppo italiano dei Pooh, pubblicato nel 1972 dalla casa discografica CBS. Si tratta del primo album del gruppo con Stefano D'Orazio, e anche dell'ultimo in cui collabora Riccardo Fogli.



Dammi solo un minuto - Pooh

Dammi solo un minuto viene firmato dalla coppia Facchinetti-Negrini. Il brano, uscito come singolo per promuovere l'album di Rotolando respirando, scalò con successo le classifiche di vendita,rimanendo in seguito popolare anche con una fortunata cover realizzata dai Gemelli Diversi, che ne hanno campionato il ritornello per loro singolo Un attimo ancora;Fu questo un fattore decisivo per il successo raggiunto dal brano dei Gemelli diversi.
Rimase un cavallo di battaglia riproposto in buona parte delle antologie ufficiali in circolazione. I brani furono spesso riproposti dal vivo all'interno di medley; Che ne fai di te venne in genere riproposta in versione unplugged, introdotta da Facchinetti con l'uso del Glockenspiel.
La canzone Dammi solo un minuto nasce come potenziale singolo fin dalla fase registrazione del quartetto; Roby Facchinetti scrive questa melodia trascinante sulla quale Valerio Negrini ha non poche difficoltà ad inserire un testo all'altezza. Ne scriverà molte versioni prima di trovare quella definitiva,che risulterà essere la prima delle stesure, scartata preventivamente dai Pooh perché non la ritenevano d'impatto ed efficace come la melodia del pezzo avrebbe potuto suggerire. L'interprete del brano è Roby Facchinetti, come nella precedente Linda.
Il singolo uscì anche in spagnolo (Dame sólo un minuto/Qué ha sido de ti)e in versione inglese dal titolo Give me only this moment, per la traduzione del produttore Teddy Randazzo.

Just give me a minute is signed by Facchinetti-Negrini couple. The song, released as a single to promote the album Rolling breathing, successfully climbed the charts, remaining popular support even with a lucky covers designed by Gemelli Diversi, who have sampled the chorus for their single A moment yet; this was a decisive factor in the success achieved by the song of several Gemini.
He remained a workhorse repeated in most of the official anthologies in circulation. The songs were often replicated live within medley; How do you generally was revived in unplugged version, introduced by Facchinetti with the use of the Glockenspiel.
The song Just give me a minute born as a potential single from the stage of the quartet recording; Roby Facchinetti writes this enthralling melody on which Valerio Negrini has many difficulties to enter a text height. It will write many versions before finding the final, which will prove to be the first of drafts, previously rejected by Pooh because it did not consider the impact and effective as the melody of the piece might suggest. The song interpreter is Roby Facchinetti, as in the previous Linda.
The single was also released in Spanish (Dame sólo a minute / Qué ha sido de ti) and English version titled Give me only this moment, for the translation of producer Teddy Randazzo.


Nascerò con Te - Pooh

Nascerò con te, un pezzo altrettanto apprezzato nelle esibizioni dal vivo. Veniva originariamento cantato da Riccardo Fogli e partecipò al Festivalbar 1972. Una versione riarrangiata venne inclusa nel suo album Compagnia.

I will bear with you, just as a piece appreciated in live performance. Originariamento was sung by Richard Sheets and participated in the Festivalbar 1972. A rearranged version was included on his album Company.


Ninna Nanna - Pooh

Ninna nanna (di Facchinetti-Negrini)[3] è una breve canzone d'amore dalle atmosfere velate ed oniriche. L'idea di Roby era quella realizzare una composizione cantata polifonicamente a quattro voci; tuttavia, il motivo musicale di Ninna nanna non consentì di realizzare in maniera soddisfacente il proponimento ed il pezzo, composto da una sola melodia ripetuta diverse volte con variazioni, venne alla fine cantato all'unisono (in compenso, un simile progetto avrebbe trovato una realizzazione parecchio più tardi, nella canzone Solo voci dell'album Tropico del Nord).[4] Nella tournée dell'inizio del '76, Ninna Nanna era introdotta da una serie di spezzoni strumentali che in seguito sarebbero stati riutilizzati, in LP successivi, come parti strumentali dei brani Sara nel sole, Storia di una lacrima, e Uno straniero venuto dal tempo; a questi tratti strumentali di sapore pop-rock seguiva la canzone con le sue atmosfere dolci e tranquille, ma senza accompagnamento dell'orchestra, sostituita dalle tastiere. Ninna nanna venne inclusa come brano guida nell'album Forse ancora poesia e trovò successivamente posto nella raccolta I Pooh 1975-1978.

Lullaby (Facchinetti-Negrini) [3] is a short love song from the veiled and dreamlike atmospheres. The idea of ​​Roby was to create a composition sung polyphonically for four voices; However, the musical motif of Lullaby not allowed to satisfactorily carry out the purpose and the piece, composed of a single melody repeated several times with variations, was finally sung in unison (in return, such a project would find a realization much later, in the Northern song album Only entries Tropico). [4] On a tour of the beginning of '76, Ninna Nanna was introduced by a series of instrumental pieces that would later be re-used in subsequent LP, as instrumental parts of Sara songs in the sun, a tear History, and one came from long foreign ; these instrumental traits of pop-rock flavor followed the song with its soft and quiet atmosphere, but without orchestral accompaniment, replaced by keyboards. Lullaby song was included as a guide in the album Perhaps poetry and later found a place in the collection The Pooh 1975-1978.


Noi due nel mondo e nell'anima - Pooh

Noi due nel mondo e nell'anima è una canzone dei Pooh pubblicata nel 1972. È uno dei primi pezzi italiani che prevedano l'uso del Minimoog, uno dei primi sintetizzatori, strumento allora appena arrivato dal Regno Unito.
Il produttore, Giancarlo Lucariello, lasciò che la canzone venisse cantata non soltanto da Dodi Battaglia, voce dominante al periodo, ma anche da Riccardo Fogli. Si tratta di uno dei maggiori successi del gruppo ed è anche il più noto dell'album Alessandra. Come era allora di consueto, i Pooh ne realizzarono, con ottimo successo commerciale in Sudamerica, anche una versione in spagnolo (Tú y yo en el más allá il titolo). Il testo narra la reazione di un uomo la cui partner, sentendosi incompresa, pare decisa a porre fine ad una relazione.

It is one of the biggest hits of the group and is also the most well-known album Alessandra. As it was then usual, Pooh they realized, with great commercial success in South America, also a Spanish version (Tú y yo en el más allá the title). The text recounts the reaction of a man whose partner, feeling misunderstood, seems determined to end a relationship.


Risveglio - Pooh

Risveglio è un noto pezzo strumentale composto da Roby Facchinetti. Ripete la stessa melodia riproposta però in un crescendo orchestrale che si risolve alla fine in un diminuendo. Gioca un prominente ruolo il contributo di Dody con la steel guitar, utilizzata dai Pooh in pochi noti pezzi (come questo oppure Ancora tra un anno). Il brano viene spesso eseguito nei concerti dal vivo, anche in combinazione con altri pezzi dell'epoca. Il pezzo fu usato anche come retro di Linda in singoli destinati al mercato internazionale.

Awakening is a well known instrumental piece composed by Roby Facchinetti. He repeats the same melody but revived in an orchestral crescendo that resolves to the end in a diminuendo.

"That 2016 will be the last tour of Pooh". The historic Italian band announced on Facebook the next dissolution, but also promises a farewell in style to the scenes. It is titled "Reunion - The last night together" double event, scheduled for 10 and 15 June respectively in Milan and Rome, which will see on stage the Pooh in the original lineup: Roby Facchinetti, Dodi Battaglia, Red Canzian, Stefano D ' Orazio and Richard Sheets. An opportunity to celebrate even between words and notes the 50th anniversary of the group formed in 1966 and among the most long-lived of Italian music

"Quello del 2016 sarà l'ultimo tour dei Pooh". Lo storico gruppo musicale italiano annuncia su Facebook il prossimo scioglimento, ma promette anche un addio alle scene in grande stile. Si intitolerà "Reunion - L'ultima notte insieme" il doppio evento, in programma il 10 e 15 giugno rispettivamente a Milano e Roma, che vedrà sul palcoscenico i Pooh nella formazione originale: Roby Facchinetti, Dodi Battaglia, Red Canzian, Stefano D'Orazio e Riccardo Fogli. Un'occasione per festeggiare tra parole e note anche i 50 anni del gruppo formatosi nel 1966 e tra i più longevi della musica italiana


Infiniti Noi -  Pooh

Infiniti noi is a 45 Pooh Parsifal from the album. This is a song from the romantic text sung by Dodi Battaglia, whose motif is repeated several times with the sole accompaniment of orchestra and piano. In the second part of the song emerges an orchestral crescendo after the workpiece half the bass come into play and the battery while the accompaniment becomes more heated with the addition of the choir and wind instruments. Highly successful, was included in several collections, including The Pooh 1971-1974, Another thought, and The Best of Pooh.


Pensiero - Pooh

Thought / A minute from love is a 45-pound of the Pooh released in 1971; was the second single recorded for CBS.

Thought tells the story of a prisoner, in fact innocent, who can reach the woman who loves only with thought; is one of the most acclaimed and most sung pieces by the public in the group tours:


Piccola Katy - Pooh

Silent / Little Katy is a 45-ounce of the Pooh, released in 1968. It was the first single of the group to enter the first 15 positions of the Hit parade.

The single was conceived in 1967 but was released on February 2, 1968. Although Piccola Katy was the piece of Lato B of the record, this song was more successful than the facade A (In silence).

The songs were soon included in the Contrasto LP, withdrawn from the trade after just a week. The first live performance of the album was in the Rai program "Settevoci", conducted by Pippo Baudo, to which only Riccardo and Roby were invited to sing Piccola Katy in playback.

The song, which had not created particular enthusiasm at the record company, turned out to be among the most popular on both radio and early group concerts. The façade A, In silence, was on his side rather appreciated, also thanks to the passionate interpretation of Riccardo Fogli.

The two songs were re-proposed starting from the Good luck tour, when in the lineup, after a long pause, the Pooh started playing their songs from the sixties again.

This choice is to be interpreted as a sort of rehabilitation of the pieces: during the nineties it was recorded a more modern and rearranged version, included in the collections, starting from 25: our story.

It is noteworthy that in the new recording the spoken intermezzo of Piccola Katy, replaced by an electric guitar solo, has been eliminated.

At the beginning of the new millennium, the songs were still present permanently in the Pooh concert ladders. Often, they are also re-proposed by the original 1968 interpreter, Riccardo Fogli.

Little Katy was republished in an unprecedented 5-voice version on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Pooh, in September 2016.


Vieni Fuori - Pooh

Pooh with the title Come out.


Chi fermerà la musica - Pooh

The single anticipated the release of the album Good luck. The music itself is the main theme of the two songs and the cover. The latter shows the Pooh in black suit, black tie and playful pose (clothing is a tribute to both the Beatles and the movie The Blues Brothers); the four exchanged the instruments.

"Who will stop the music" was dedicated to the memory of John Lennon. Later it became one of the group's best-known songs and was regularly performed in the concerts of the ensemble before the final Again in a year. It is a merry hymn to music on whose future is projected but also a shadow: there are figures that could stop the music; they are described as infallible characters that never change their minds (this is a criticism of some municipal administrations of the time, which did not always favor - as hoped by the Pooh - the artistic work of the tours). The song also gave the title to the television program Chi stop the music, produced over twenty years later.
In 2016, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the band, the Pooh record a 5-voice rearranged version of Chi that will stop the music.
The back "Banda nel vento" is one of the many autobiographical pieces published by the group at the turn of the seventies and eighties. At the concerts of the time, he introduced and concluded the live medley of the older pieces that the Pooh presented to the public. It tells the public the old times of the Pooh, always around the highways in search of an artistic statement.


Rotolando Respirando -  Pooh

Rolling breathing is the tenth album by Pooh, released in autumn 1977.

Initially, the album was conceived as a metropolitan concept-album, inspired by the new punk movement that took hold in Italy, but after the first two songs the pen of Valerio Negrini seems not able to fit perfectly all the texts, and so the author of the texts would have been forced to change the idea.

Tends to take up the somewhat neglected love themes in the previous album, Poohlover: in general, the everyday subjects of city life, preponderant in Poohlover, are integrated into love stories and act as social background songs: That's how themes reappear urban as the birth of free radio (Sara in the sun, Live in the wind), commuting and barbonism (Sara in the sun), the anonymity of the city metropolitan (Bella) or the peripheral and highway landscapes (Rolling breathing).

At the same time the contribution of the symphonic orchestra is reduced, now present only in a couple of passages.

The record is mixed twice, because in the first session the Pooh realized they had made the wrong arrangements and had to redo everything with expensive shifts in the recording room.
