Making exempt of keyboards, the progressive sound of this group was given by the continue use of the violin as solo instrument, along with the two guitars and vocal arrangements.
Although they had been playing gigs since the early 70s, they released their only album in 1974. Sin tiempo ni espacio was an interesting record that mixed classical and progressive music, as heard on "Está próximo el momento" and on the album-title track.
The b-side was more intense, with songs like "Siempre encontraré un lugar" (with excellent performances of both guitars and violin) or "Noche de Sol" (with a repeated riff and a great guitar solo). All and all, a unique album of great interest for collectors. (In a way, this LP relates to the first Ave Rock album, for the progressive sound using two guitars).
In 1975, now a trio -Campanelli/Gutiérrez/Hernández-, Los Barrocos recorded one standard song ("Tendrás en tus manos") to be included on the compilation Rock para mis amigos -Volume 4 (Talent I-567). No one heard of them ever since.
Their LP is extremely rare and highly collectable. It has not been reissued on any form so far. A very early song called "Dualidad" was also included on the beat compilation La Catedral del Ritmo (Redondel L-321).
