Pyranas Giulietta e Romeo LP. Released in 1970 on Italian RCA ARC (ALPS 11016)

This Album is truely amazing!! One of the holy grails of psyche/funk out of Italy!!
The album consists of raw Mohawks style hammond tracks with hardhitting aggresive scat-vocals blending with a hammering psychedelic jazz funk!!! lot of interesting moments on this one with neckbreaking guarantee!!! If you wouldnt have guessed it by now I really dig this album..... Just loaded with breaks and beats and with catchy simple themes with a hard edge!! also a blazing horn section really puts their stamp on this one!!!
Eventhoug this is some sort of concept album - there is a lot of twists and turns on this album and that is exactly what is so wonderful about it - you can sence that they are experimenting alot with arrangements and it really works!!

(I really dont know if its a concept-album – just assuming from the title...a twisted soundtrack to the story about Romeo and Juliet atleast I think so – cant speak Italian so I wouldnt know for sure.)

Some people compare this with the Mohawks but to be honest - I like this much better!!!

Dont really know much about the group or the impact their 3 albums had at the time. The band formed in 1967 and released this album as their last one in 1970.

This is one of the rarer Lps of mine - and one of the best..

So happy to share it with you out there!!!!!
