4 stars Hunka Munka is actually a pseudonym used by Varese-based keyboard wizard Roberto Carlotto,who had collaborated with many Italian bands in the past (among them ANONIMA SOUND LTD.) before releasing a personal single in 1971,followed by his first and only full- length release ''Dedicato a Giovanna G.'' the year after.

Why this album is so seriously underrated remains a total mystery to me.This one belongs among the most beautiful and classy organ-driven prog gems released back in 70's Italy.It is an album full of intricate organ playing,monster string arrangements and romantic Italian vocals,recalling early LE ORME and other Orchestral Proto-Prog acts like I DIK DIK.At moments the band even falls into the Heavy Symphonic category with intense guitar playing and bombastic organs in the vein of MUSEO ROSENBACH and what possibly prevents other people to rate it higher and enjoy it more are a couple of short ballad/beat tracks far from the afore-mentioned styles,which are only the exception.

I loved this album from the first listening,the emotion that it brought to me can not be described with words and,thus I can't rate it lower than 4 stars...Excellent,masterful and romantic organ- smashed classic Italian Prog this is!
