This is the group’s third album, which was recorded in 1983, with Willy Gardi as the only original member left.

The Chilean band’s second recorded outing is a concept album featuring a musical aesthetic classifiable as Chamber Rock or R.I.O., in which more of an acoustic sound predominantly stands out. The excellent result is music with a definitive dramatic character. It is at times extremely eclectic and diverse, while also evoking mysterious dreams with deeply dark and ethereal overtones.

The sixth volume of this successful series is a work of Jazz and Progressive Fusion that uses indigenous and foreign rhythms, perhaps in a more synthetic and stripped-down fashion than ever. Recorded as an Electric Trio formation, and with several nods to the music and scene of the seventies, though at the very same time manifesting the sounds of traditional Argentine roots from the River Plate region and typically northwestern rhythmic variations, though this time a little less Baroque and somewhat quite a lot more Rock-oriented.

At long last, an unpublished work by Jorge López Ruiz and featuring texts by José Tcherkaski, finally sees the light of day. This is the very much anticipated sequel to his “Bronca Buenos Aires”, which was recorded in 1973, and banned by the dictatorship of then Argentine President, General A. A. Lanusse. For many years, these tapes were believed to have been burned, but after several years, they have been rescued. This Argentine Jazz, 4-movement effort, introduced very committed texts and stories from times of harsh military repression.

After Almendra's dissolvement, its members decided to take different routes: Luis Alberto Spinetta created Pescado Rabioso, Edelmiro Molinari joined Color Humano, while Emilio Del Guercio and Rodolfo García started a fresh musical career by forming Aquelarre, together with Hugo González Neira and Héctor Starc. It is the intention of all four authors of this book to chronologically tell the journey initiated by this essential, with its very own identity, Progressive Rock band. What we have here is a meticulous description of their discography and key concerts, in addition to the storytelling by its own protagonists and other sources. Also featured is a detailed and acute look by the Argentine Music Press, as well as from around the rest of the world.

In mid-1976, the band El Nirvana begins to take shape in the musical conservatory of the Argentine coastal city of Mar del Plata, where several musicians gathered together to create an eightsome of Contemporary Music, consisting of young people who originated from different musical backgrounds.

Argentine - Book in Spanish - Format 23 x 15 cm. In printing paper with 200 black & white / coloured cover.

In the early nineties, somewhere in the burning Californian desert, a band called Kyuss led a move that originated a new musical genre that combined Heavy Rock and Psychedelia, with high levels of distortion, and which they baptized as "Stoner Rock." Meanwhile, at almost the very same time, in Buenos Aires, a group of musicians formed the band "Los Natas", who took that raw sound as a direct influence. They were the beacon of their generation: They encouraged many others to join this self-generated adventure, becoming one of the most famous groups in Argentina. This book tells how that seed, literally planted in the middle of the desert, flourished and bore fruit in our own territory.
