It would be safe to say that Gino Pavan's Magico initially sunk without trace when it first appeared, way back in 1980. In recent times, the original 7" has become an in-demand item amongst cosmic disco collectors. This limited reissue marks the first time Pavan's tracks have appeared on 12". "Magico" itself remains a fine example of space-rock/disco fusion, with winding synthesizer lines rising and falling over a rubbery groove and spacey, sustained chords. The synths come to the fore on E.P standout "Electrik Flower", where spiraling melody lines ride a pulsating, proto Italo-disco groove. The more low-slung "La Terra Ed Il Seme", which makes excellent use of Tony Allen style drumming and fluttering flute solos, is also fantastic.
