Dalton is an italian band from Lombardia. They released their debut single in 1967. They included for a short period the future PFM member Mauro Pagani.

The group was later reformed in 1972 by original keyboardist Temistocle Reduzzi with a new line-up that released a very good debut album with Riflessioni: idea d'infinito.
With a great use of flute and good guitar riffs, the album has some very good moments, like Idea d'infinito with some JETHRO TULL influences. The album has a very short running time of around 30 minutes but it moved the band to a moderate success. They even won the first prize in a swiss Pop Festival in Zurich.

Affinity to early UK prog is noticeable in the blues-influenced guitar riffs and leads, typically breathy and percussive flute lines, occasional stabs at (then) avant-garde electronic episodes based on Moog and a Mellotron.

After a single in 1974, La donna e il bambino, the band had a line-up change with Reduzzi and flutist Alex Chiesa leaving to be replaced by keyboardist Giancarlo Brambilla and singer Massimo Moretti, but the second album Argitari (a title formed with the initials of the musicians' names) is considered by many on a lower level than their debut and is mainly built on acoustic guitar.

The band closed its career with a late commercial single in 1979.
Two band members, Temistocle Reduzzi and Aronne Cereda, were also involved in a pop opera released in 1975, PACIANA STORY, a mix of traditional folk and pop.
Drummer Walter Locatelli formed Mo.Do.
