3 stars 3,5 stars really, I like their previous item Espana, Ano 75 more (would give for this one four full stars at least). But - my present aim is to write reviews to these albums I have just got. So - let's do that just about Granada's third and last album Valle Del Pas from 1978. The most different additions to previous effort Espana, Ano 75 are orchestral arrangements in three themes and bagpipes with celtic folk influences, at least in three tracks. Compositions are shorter and maybe less "wearing" than on Espana, Ano 75. This time my personal faves are compositions with orchestral arrangements (the most important composition for me is surely Calle Betis) - we can listen quite nice bassoon parts here. And as Cesar Inca mentioned, on this record bandleader Carlos Carcamo (fortunately we can listen his fabulous piano and synth playing here again) had changed surely all his band companions - I personally like his band on Espana, Ano 75 more (because of a bit more colourful soundspectrum and a bit more intensive playing). Anyway - nice listening and discovering of Spanish symphonic progressive music.
