The world of Alex Puddu just keeps on getting bigger and bigger – and so do the wonderfully funky sounds on his records! Puddu's always been a real up-and-comer in the global funk underground – an artist who gets just the right 70s vibe in his instrumentation, arrangements, and production – not in a small group funk style, but in the best modes of the soundtrack and sound library scenes – especially the groovier artists working overseas at the time! And while his other music has always been great, this record really blows us away – with a mixture of complicated tones and catchy grooves that surpasses anything we've heard from Alex before – not just an attempt to be retro, but a move that goes beyond into territory that's all Puddu's own – even when famous Morricone collaborator Edda Dell'Orso brings her marvelous vocals into play on some of the album's tracks. Genius material throughout – with titles that include "Immersioni", "Il Sogno La Luna", "Terra E Fuoco", "Una Donna Allo Specchio", "Mood Psychedelico", and "The Bull".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.


This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Buried Treasure (France), 2016. Sealed
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, ...

Go Deep (with bonus CD)
Legere (France), 2016. Sealed
Nick Pride and his group definitely go deep – thanks to lead vocals from Beth Macari, whose sound here easily matches the best female singers on the international deep funk scene in recent years!

Spinning Wheel (Germany), 1998. Very Good+
The second volume to the fake Hotpie & Candy label series of "lost funk cuts" that really aren't, but which still sound pretty darn authentic – and set the scene for a huge wave of later work from Poets Of Rhythm and The Whitefield Brothers!

Out On The Coast
Colemine, 2016. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great work from one of the freshest funk combos going today – a group who really grabbed our ears with their initial singles and debut album – but who seem here to be heading into even hipper territory overall!

Desco, 1998. Very Good+
An early example of the deep funk explosion in the 90s – the kind of work that laid the ground for the Soul Fire and Daptone labels to come!

One of Ubiquity's brightest acts serves up a hip batch of remix tracks – featuring work by Kirk Degiorgio, Ashley Beedle, Nubian Mindz, I:Cube, and Opaque.

Ubiquity, 2013. Near Mint- 2LP
A really wonderful set of grooves – much richer, jazzier, and more soulful than we would have expected – and a great full length introduction to the work of Bosq!

Elektro Hafiz
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 2016. Sealed
A cool set by an artist who's clearly influenced by all the older trippy styles issued by the Pharaway Sounds label – especially that imprint's strong focus on fuzzy psych from the Mid-East! In fact, the overall sound of this set's so cool, you could easily pass it off as some lost Turkish ... LP, Vinyl record album
