Aquelarre biography
AQUELARRE (meaning witches nocturnal meeting with the devil) was formed after the dissolution of the band ALMENDRA in 1970, as its bass player Emilio del Güercio and drummer Rodolfo Garcia joined up with guitar player Héctor Stark and keyboard player Hugo González Neira joined up. They performed in B.A.Rock II festival 1971, and their first studio album "Aquelarre" was released in 1972. It's cover was drawn by the band's bass player, who became graphic designer later. Their music is sophisticated psychedelic rock'n'roll with very impressionistic moments, artistic arrangements, surrealistic themes and they have a jazzy rhythm section. During next years they released three more albums, "Candiles" in 1973, and it's cover is a painting of Goya, which name is the same as the bands name! Third and their most popular album "Brumas" was released in 1974. After this the band moved to Spain, and they released the album "Siesta" in 1975. After this they had a tour in Spain, but they didn't get the success they searched, and in 1977 they had their goodbye concert in Argentina without González Neira, who stayed in Spain. After their dissolution Rodolfo Garcia joined TANTOR, and Emilio del Güergcio went to have a solo career.

4 stars I have bought this boxset instead of the individual Aquelarre records and I must say its really interesting. It features a bonus disc including unreleased material and a big booklet with articles and high quality pictures of the band. The individual discs also have a small booklet that contains the lyrics of each song so they are correctly presented , altough they could have included more information since they are a limited edition and they add no value to the individual discs. The box that contains the CDs is robust and will not break easily.It costed me about US$100 so its about 16 dollars per record. The price being a bit expensive for what it is if you are argentinean but if you are from another country (and Im sure you are) I have no doubts , go get this boxset intead of the individual cds. Summing up , a very respectable edition of this argentinean cult band. Indispensable if you are into South American prog and highly reccomendable if you have a few bucks to spend. For the music within each record I will slowly submit reviews on each one so it impacts the records rating.

Review by Marty McFly

4 stars This album is different (from Siesta, their last one), not being melodic too much, depending on other elements that makes us shiny happy Prog people. So if you expect melody, go look elsewhere, "Brumas" is about more serious type of Prog.

Providing changes in form of odd time signatures, sudden quiet parts, rapid changes of leading instruments, simply Prog as most of you know it. Still pleasant to listen though, even not as enjoyable at the first sight as what will follow. Indeed, it's not usual to go from last album to first, but it can provide interesting results sometimes.

There are also parts that sounds like Rock (wild guitar solos like on some Led Zeppelin record - last part of Milagro Del Pueblo).

4(-), even not exactly my kind of Prog, its qualities are clear I think.

Siesta

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars (Nothing psychedelic here at all), but rather extremely melodic 70s vintage type Prog Rock of Sudoamerican dreams. First side of this album is top notch, best class, highest quality. The second one is good, but not so appealing. However also not appalling.

There is strong scent of happy atmosphere, pouring from each second of this record, happy atmosphere, band having fun making this album and so on. Why not, this only helps.

Be it first seconds of Pájaro De La Locura where this great sounding keyboard stars the show (I wish I remember the name of this instrument), multi-vocal harmonies that are present in various tracks, original melodies (interesting ones), beautiful second part of Canto Centrino.

It's hard to be so melodic and not being pathetic / cheesy (call it as you wish), but guys from Aquelarre manages to stay at the top with this album.

5(-), one of the best ones. Because it's hard to be so beautiful.

Review by electricsilence

3 stars A pretty good album, it picks up s from where Almendra II left off; anyways this sounds much more like Pappo's Blues than Almendra. Of course, Spinetta's absence explains the sharp drop in the quality of the lyrics when comparing this album to Almendra. I don't know if I would call it psychedelic or space rock, but it is in the same vein as most stoner rock bands. The album features a great cover, which is pretty psychedelic, and was drawn by the band's bass player.

Review by aqualung71

5 stars In my country (place of Crucis, Aquelarre, Arco Iris, La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros) not all knows of this bands, the argentinian rock of the 80's froget the 70's and the young people don't know this bands. I think is a masterpiece of argentinian rock. Hector Stark is a exelent guitar player, all the band is good. But i think the bad thing of this band is the importance of the guitar and forguet the others instrument. There's no balance like Yes or Floyd. But is an exelent album of Rock 'n' Roll, psichedelia, Space, progressive.

Review by Prog-jester
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
3 stars 2.5 stars

Concise, even short album (32 minutes long) filled with wonderful music. I ain't sure this one is Psych Prog - it's more on folky/Proto-Prog side, with some noticable Symphonic influences. If you like Spanish Prog acts like MEZQUITA and TRIANA, you may try this one - it's a bit less adventurous and definetely not recommended unless you're aware of what you want. Not bad at all, but not that kind of Forgotten Gem you utterly need. Some influences from major acts like GENESIS and SUPERTRAMP are also scattered here and there as well, and it makes music more familiar and enjoyable. Recommended with a note.

Review by Andy56

4 stars Essential for ones who wanted to understand the progressive music at Latin America. Aquelarre is the syntesis of the 40 years of Argentinean Rock Music and this album made in their 25th anniversary compilates their best songs in a live presentation. Since most of their influence is coming from jazz, hard rock, progressive rock (Pink Floyd and Yes mainly) and a touch of latin, their performance is very rich in rythms and harmonic composition. I am rating 4 stars to be careful but 5 stars would be legitimate as well. Nice to listen and enjoy!!! Andy Pianta

3 stars Interesting, but not maybe the most essential psychedelic-oriented recording from the South America. I must admit, that as the language of Miguel de Cervantes is not familiar to me, I missed all from the lyrical content of this record. Nevertheless, the album was a pleasant record to listen through, I think much influences were drawn from the mid 1960's psychedelic records, mainly maybe from The Doors. Some songs of the album are quite basic bluesy rock tunes with keyboard passages resembling the band I mentioned, but there are also some very sophisticated impressionistic walls of sound found here, and I would recommend this album for anybody of interested in obscure Latin psych oriented music. The classical painting of Goya on the album jacket sets serious moods for the listening moments certainly.

Review by erik neuteboom
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I have heard two CD's from Argentine four piece band Aqualarre: their second entitled Brumas (1974) and their third entitled Siesta (1975). I prefer Siesta because it sounds a bit less raw. In general Aquelarre delivers melodic, elaborate and alternating music on their seven compositions, often warm and a bit subdued with dreamy vocals. I am delighted about the colouring by the 'vintage keyboards' like the distinctive Hohner clavinet and the Fender Rhodes electric piano (giving the album a jazzy undertone) along organ and synthesizers. The melodic guitar work is often very sensitive, a wonderful combination with the varied keyboards and pleasant vocals. If you want to check out the very interesting Latin-American prog, this band is a nice one to discover!
