3 stars My favorite track of this classic album (second release by Babe Ruth) is the album title track "Amar Caballero" that comprises three parts. The song is basically mellow in style during intro part with some influences of classical music. Janita Haan sings with her heart through the vocal clarity she delivers and her powerful timbre. The song starts with vocal line accompanied with acoustic guitar work. The acoustic guitar fills the music augmented with soft keyboard sound. The music then moves into a faster tempo with percussion drive and speedy acoustic guitar work in latin music style. It's a wonderful acoustic guitar solo with excellent rhythm section.

"Baby Pride" is an acoustic guitar exploration, no drumming, heavily loaded with classical music at the intro part followed with nice voice line and great keyboard work. Janita's singing style is in blues-jazz vein augmented with great guitar fills. "We Are Holding On" is a chamber music with guest musicians: Raymond Vincent (vilin), Duncan Lamont (flute) and Nick Mobs (tambourine). "Broken Cloud" is the only different track than the others in terms of nuance as this track is heavily influenced with eastern (Chinese) orchestration. It's a good track.

It's a good album and it has different value when you were there by the time the album was released or even until late seventies. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
