Where it is about a train...




Very little info on Traks except that it is an Italian band formed in 1982.


Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the enormous single "Long train runnin '" which will be released the same year. Single that will set fire to all the Dancefloor on the planet this year.


As such alone, he deserved this article.


To discover or rediscover.

1982 ... just one title, THIS title, was enough to bring this totally unknown group into the musical legend of the 80s. On a luxury cover of the Doobie Brothers title dating from 1971, they signed here a huge hit Dance which will undoubtedly remain as one of the most emblematic of the decade. MAS-TER-FUL !



1982 ... as very often in these cases, the level of success achieved with the 2nd title has nothing to do with what came before. A group that will go down in history only for a One Shot. As was often the case with many other bands of the same style ...



1982 ... even if the group will never repeat the feat accomplished on its first title, what he continues to offer largely holds up. We will be satisfied !



1983 ... a sound and a style that perfectly matches the latest trends of the moment. Unfortunately, this will not be enough to keep them in touch with the best ...



1983 ... there is quantity in this year 1983, as for the quality, that is something else. We will have to be satisfied with the strict minimum ...




1985 ... come on, one last little title and then go. A group in existence more than ephemeral but which can always boast of having produced one of the biggest hits of the decade. It's already that !
