SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Singer/guitarist Jorge Garacotche was the man behind this Canturbe band from Argentina.He settled the act in 1977 along with bassist Luis Blanco as well as Adriana Lelva and Roberto Miranda on drums and guitars.Musical differences led to the departure of of Miranda and Lelva, who were replaced by Alejandro Fiori and Gerardo Antonel respectively.This quartet recorded the cassette ''El vuelo de los olvidados'' in 1980 with the help of Charly Garcia on keyboards.The album was re-released 23 years later in CD format by Viajero Inmovil.

Canturbe played some sort of song-based Soft Prog with guitars on the forefront, light Psych influences and a huge dose of romantic vocal lines.Many compare them to the Italian Prog scene, but the truth seems to be that their sound is closer to compatriots REDD.Very relaxing material, bordering to pure background music, with an alternation between calm acoustic textures and light electric guitars, sometimes with a district Fusion touch on the delivery.Anyone expecting the participation of Garcia would made a huge impact will be extremely dissapointed, as the album contains sporadic and very mellow keyboard colors throughout.The majority of the tracks have a strong ballad atmosphere and lack any kind of dynamics, still the vocal arrangements of Garacotche contain some nice emotion.Unfortunately one will have to search hard for some decent adventurous themes, exciting musiciaship and even more some needed energy...and these are contained only in the long ''En virtud del obcecado'' with its fiery second section, where keyboards and guitars eventually make some noise.

Not an album I would dare to recommend to fans of any kind of energetic Progressive Rock music.This is a release, which will please only fans of soft Acoustic Prog or anyone searching for a good album for his forthcoming rendezvous.

Review by Matti
4 stars Truth to be told, I didn't even know this Argentinan band a couple of hours ago. What makes me want to review this album - that I was just listening to from YouTube as a background listening for working - is the fact that there's only one rather unfavourable review. Apps79's objective description of the music actually isn't anything I would strongly disagree, but to me two stars feels a bit hard for such a pleasant album like this. "Anyone expecting the participation of [keyboardist Charly] Garcia would made a huge impact will be extremely dissapointed, as the album contains sporadic and very mellow keyboard colors throughout", he writes. Well, I had no expectations of any kind, and because of the low ratings I was prepared to change once again the haphazardly PA-picked Crossover Prog band in the Tube. I was happily delighted during my listening.

Yes, there's a strong ballad atmosphere on most tracks. But I find the album entity also dynamic enough to recommend it for anyone interested to hear mellow late-70's prog sung in Spanish. Something not so every-day stuff, right? The lead vocals of Jorge Garacotche are tender and clean, a bit like Don McLean on his highest, and the harmonies work well. The instrumentation favours acoustic guitar, and I wonder if this could be categorized as Prog Folk as well. On some songs piano does a great effect as the lead instrument. There's also at least one instrumental track (understandably I can't go into track-by-track details as I'm listening the album from YouTube).

The key word is mellowness, no doubt of that. Forget this if you're searching for edgy and complex prog. If you're fond of soft, pastoral and emotionally oriented Crossover or folk-oriented prog with light arrangements, I bet you'll have lots to enjoy here. 3 stars rounded upwards.
