2 stars Another name in the huge list of folk rock bands emerging in Spain between 1975 and 1980.Errobi were actually formed in 1973 in Pais Vasco by Mikel Ducau (vocals,guitars and keyboards) and Anje Duhalde (guitar and voclas).With Beņat Amorena on drums and Mikel Halty on bass they released the eponymous LP in 1975 on Elkar.

''Errobi'' is a mix of soft,Blues and Folk Rock with light CAMEL influences on electric guitars,entirely sung in the Basque dialect.The album features simple melodies,standard song formats in short durations and a smooth atmosphere and is somewhat split between acoustic and electric music.Fellow natives ENBOR is a good reference point,but Errobi's music is less inspired and with no sign of progressive twists.The whole result is a pleasant and positive listening with decent guitar work,a few interesting bass lines and romantic vocals, which flaws fine but it lacks in energy,rich content and dynamics.

This is not a bad album,it contains a good amount of Basque Folk Music,but ''Errobi'' is straightly headed for fans of soft rock and it's a rather strange field for the demanding prog fan...2.5 stars.
