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".

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.

Now Again, 2008. Near Mint- 2LP
One of the hippest albums from the funky empire that includes Poets Of Rhythm and The Whitefield Brothers – a set of Afro-exotic grooves that really blows our minds – and which opens the group up into whole new territory!

Sonny Knight & The Lakers Do It Live
Secret Stash, 2015. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A hell of a live set from Sonny Knight & The Lakers – a record that's twice as long as the group's studio session, and maybe twice as smoking as well! Sonny's an older soul singer from years back, but he's never sounded better than working here with funky backings from The Lakers – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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!
