In The Eye Of The Cat (with bonus CD)

LP (Item 860521) Schema (Italy), 2016 — Condition: Sealed

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.
