Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars AQUELARRE were a Psychedelic band out of Argentina and this is their debut from 1972. What makes this album great in my opinion are the vocals, drums and guitar. They are a four piece but those guys standout. The keyboardist plays clavinet throughout except for the organ he adds to two tracks. The shortest of the six tracks is the 4 minute opener with that third song being the longest at 9 minutes. I like how they repeat themes and change things up. An adventerous spirit here and these guys were in previous bands, they are experienced Jimi.

I have to say I'm surprised at how much I enjoy this record. I just love their sound and they have some attitude. The bass player did the cover art which is a classic when it comes to South American Prog albums. Every song on here is good to great, my kind of album. In fact I couldn't come up with a top three even as I checked every track on here, they are all good. Singing is in Spanish. The one song that's a little different is that fifth track with some ukulele even provided by the guitarist. More of a folky vibe on this one but it's uplifting to me. The opener might be my favourite, very energetic and catchy with repeated themes and I'd say the same about the third number on here.

Another outstanding release from Argentina, I'm so glad to own this one. Love that attitude.
