4 stars What a lovely composition by Robert Wyatt!... And what a lovely re-interpretation is the one that Honduras Libregrupo elaborated here in this downloadable CD single! Originally released as a free CD, it is currently (I don't know for how long) through the band's website. The band really did a fine job retaining the original composition's essence, not deconstructing it but reconstructing with an enhanced sonic power that helps the lead guitar soloing make sense in the overall instrumentation: the final synthesizer solo completes the song's mood in a very extroverted manner without killing its evocative core. This performance is very focused on old fashioned psychedelia, enriched with the inclusion of jazz-oriented cadences - this is what this song might have sounded like had it been recorded by a proper full band in the style of Matching Mole (first album) or Hatfield & the North (second album). The Spanish lyrics reflect the original melancholy, while the vocal delivery states a rougher spirit when compared to Wyatt's own singing. As you can see, this cover has been a very creative labor of preservation and innovation. Please, do yourself a favor and download this song... as soon as possible!
