"One of the best and most important psychedelic bands to emerge from South America. It is impossible to indicate just how revolutionary they were; but the fact that the band were naked on the cover of their debut, and crucified their singer on the cover of their second album may give you an idea. The band's first album was recorded live in 1969 in a simple three-track studio. In a strict Catholic country, the album's front cover showing the band sitting nude in a darkly lit room caused quite a stir; record shops refused to stock the record and the press and Church both censored it. And the music rattled a few people too: raw, with heavy rhythms, bursts of distortion and fuzz, fantastic phased female vocals (inviting the inevitable comparison to Jefferson Airplane), and English lyrics. The band's guitarist Carlos Corales is superb, his skill most evident on the erotic 'Erotica' and the ten-minute long mini-epic 'Crimson And Clover,' which finds his wife Denise in superb vocal form." Housed in an old style tip-on jacket with a double-fold cardstock insert with photos and extensive notes.
