"Fantasia del Barrio is the missing link between the psychedelic sounds of Texas and the Chicano soul and funk of the late 1960's and early '70s. Recorded soon after Eugenio Jaimez returned from a tour of duty in Vietnam, Fantasia del Barrio is his musical meditation on life at war and the Chicano experience at home. Skillfully performed in one marathon recording session, Jaimez and El Gusano embraced the soul, funk and psychedelic sounds of their day to craft this lost instrumental concept album. Long sought after by break hunters and psych collectors, Heavy Light Records is proud to bring Eugenio Jaimez Jr.'s masterpiece to light. Beautiful, faithful remastering featuring color insert with historical notes and unpublished photos. Limited hand-numbered pressing of 1,000 copies in heavy, old school tip-on jacket."
