Claudio Dentes, Italy ***REISSUED***

*** June 2010 update: This album is part of Vol. 5 of Universal's Italian Progressive Rock Box sets ***
Claudio Dentes - Pantarei. 1978 Mirto.

Generally solo artists from Italy during this era were singer-songwriter focused, but Dentes is primarily a multi-instrumentalist, and he puts his talent towards creating a strong instrumental work (though there are some sparse vocals). At times, "Pantarei" reaches the space rock heights of Franco Falsini's "Cold Nose". I'm most reminded of this when I hear the electric guitar, which is super compressed and fuzzed out. While certainly not an Italian prog rock classic, Dentes' album is not one to overlook and is worth seeking out for a listen or two.

Priority: none
