Rokes Ekos and Rickenbackers

One of the great 'Italian' groups of the 1960s the Rokes provide a link between Italian and British pop music. They wrote and played some beautiful songs, and played Ekos and Rickenbackers. Have a look on You Tube or get the Best Of CD.

Rickenbacker distributed Eko in the USA in the late '60s.
