First ever reissue of this 1979 Latin-funk-psych-prog trip featuring groovy jazzy flute, superb acoustic and electric guitars, funky rhythm section, exotic percussion, and some cool Thai and Brazilian vibes. Dutch guitarist Angelo Noce Santoro was a founding member of legendary psych-prog band Cosmic Dealer; he has also recorded and released albums under his own name and with Palmeira (the first Dutch band to play Brazilian music), Santoro Brothers, and Oriental Guitars, among many others. His unique guitar style, which incorporates surf, psychedelic, jazz, and eastern influences, has received praise from such connoisseurs of obscure instrumental sounds as Jello Biafra, who got in touch with Santoro after discovering one of his solo albums in a second-hand shop in the '80s. For You was Santoro's first solo effort, released as a private pressing in 1979 on ANS, his own label. Santoro played bass, acoustic, and electric guitars; flute; and percussion. He was joined by ace flute player Steven Bishop, drummer Herman Muller, and Lodewijk Hulsman on acoustic guitar. Santoro wrote most of the tracks before 1979, and some date back to his time with Cosmic Dealer in the early '70s. Master tape sound; includes insert/booklet with liner notes and photos. CD comes with two previously unreleased bonus tracks from 1979: a second part of "Raindance" and a cover of João Gilberto's "Undiú."
