2008 release. This collection brings together the greatest tracks from Peru's Los York's, taken from their four LPs and 25 singles, between 1966 and 1974. Los York's were the most famous and successful band in their country (more than Los Shains or Los Saicos). Back in their heyday, they were accused of drug-abuse and criticized because of the evilness of their sound and lyrics (which praised free love). The very original feedback guitar playing of Walter Paz will be a true discovery for fans of The Who's Pete Townshend and even Sterling Morrison from The Velvet Underground. On the other hand, singer Pablo Luna was some sort of crazy hybrid between Iggy Pop and Reg Presley of The Troggs. He was a true character, and a stage animal, which was shocking for a place like Peru in the '60s. Years later, a Peruvian journalist wrote that during his career, Pablo had smashed a total of 48 microphones. But Los York's attitude was TRUE, and not posture, unlike these days when scandal and outrage is a powerful marketing tool. Los York's were true rebellious souls, unstoppable and genuine. And their on-stage and off-stage behavior is still legendary in Peru. They got so famous that they even had their own TV show (El Show de Los York's) that aired for almost a year.
