3 stars A disc with as much mythical one around is very difficult to evaluate. In the context of the investigation its musical value is unquestionable. Musically one can well be considered rarities. El disc decides on a way between folk indigenous of the Chilean south and a mixture of ancestral percussion; all it with enough text ironic and games of words. The structures of the songs are deliberately appropriate for the improvisation , that was what they did in his presentations in direct. The song "foto de primera comuniˇn" advances in some way which would be their next works. It is the case of the sound of the guitar whose effect of distortion has much similarity to which it used Country Joe & The Fish. Is right to say that this first recording of the Jaivas, (only 500 copies) it became possible thanks to "the logistic" help of Country Joe Mac Donald that contact with the Chilean band at the beginning of years 70. The album have a superlative value as collection disc; Musically is more interesting that surprising or brilliant. Nevertheless is essential for that they want to know well the spirit tribal this South American band.
