10/10 Manunggal K. Wardaya Customer review, 23rd June 2010
I've been knowing and doing a research about Dara Puspita for the last 5 years. They're the first Indonesian band, consisted of female players who played in Europe for 3,5 years during the late 60's to early 70's. The CD above however contains tracks from their studio albums recorded under Indonesian label MESRA and ELSHINTA records. To keep in mind, they also released several singles during their tour in England and The Netherlands.
Delivering cover musics ranging from The Ventures, The Shadows, and also The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, DARA PUSPITA (means Flower Girls) along with their own compoisitions, the band is undoubtedly one of the most phenomenal garage band in this world. Unfortunately they're less known by music community in this world due to the scope of marketing of their label during their heyday. This re-release is an awesome effort to bring them back to the surface. A very good job.
The CD contains raw tracks from their purest rock n roll, that will bring us back to the atmosphere of 60's.
I've been developing a site for a homage of Dara Puspita, see embahgambreng.multiply
The site contains tons of rare pictures of the band, derived from their ex-roadie Mr Handiyanto, aka Embah Gambreng, that's why the site is named after him.
