5 stars Bubu is an argentinian band from seventies. They started circa 1970, with a band named Sion (name of a spirit). Anabelas had came only in 1983, because they had political problems and recorders obstacles, but in that time they played many other songs live, like a 15-minute version of "Eleanor Rigby". As other reviewers said, this album is a mix of Symphonic Progressive and Rock In Opposition. Frank Zappa, King Crimson and Genesis are their main influences, but they also used to listen John Coltrane, free jazz, contemporary classical music. Unfortunately, they didn't record more albums. Sergio Blostein said in an interview they were very exigent with themselves, and they just would record something better than Anabelas. But, according to Wim Fortsman (, there will be a second Anabelas edition, with bonus tracks and pictures from the group. The bonus probably are: "Carnavalito" (that runs around 20 minutes) and "Cloud Train". They have also two versions of a Tango, "City" (by Andreoli), "Florian's Song" (by Wim), and they edited a demo called "Film". All fans are waiting a long time for these precious tracks! Bubu is an excelent band, considering this great album. They are my preferred from Argentina. It's always a pleasure recommend and speak about Bubu. I give five stars to this band with no regret! To see Sergio Blostein interview (in spanish): . My superficial translation is here: TID=6264&KW=bubu&PID=130684#130684
