"Keyboardist Roberto Carlotto from Varese, whose nickname was Hunka Munka, began playing since his childhood, though his musical career was seriously compromised by an aircraft accident that caused him some heavy injuries. As a solo artist, Carlotto was easily recognized by his very good technical quality and the high level of his equipment that included an incredible number of different keyboards and even the early examples of tape drum machines. His only solo album, Dedicato a Giovanna G., with his outrageous cover, is a soft-prog album, obviously dominated by Hunka's keyboards (especially his self-customized Hammond organ) and odd tremolo voice resembling Demis Roussos or Bee Gees. Among the backing musicians were drummer Nunzio 'Cucciolo' Favia from Osage Tribe and guitarist Ivan Graziani that had also played in Anonima Sound before leaving for a successful solo career. The album contains 11 short tracks, two of which also released on single, mostly in a pop style and sometimes marred by orchestral and backing singers arrangements, like in 'Io canterĂ² per te.' Anyway it contains some nice moments for prog fans, like 'Ruote e sogni,' the album's longest track with very good organ playing. Wonderful reissue with original gimmick cover."
