"The second album release by the Catalan band, Màquina!, which was to be their musical goodbye as a band, is undoubtedly the highest peak reached by a Spanish band at its time. They were offering a live recording with a superb sound, and it was presented as a double album. Original singer Jordi Batiste joined the group for the occasion to leave a recorded testimonial of how the boys sounded in their latter days. Crude unadulterated jazz rock performances under the influence of black music, jazz and funk, and bands such as Chicago, Spirit or Blood Sweat & Tears, starring a tight base of drums-bass-guitar-Hammond and with the addition of a funky brass section. The band canned some great performances of earlier stuff like 'Look Away Our Happiness' or 'Chains' plus great covers and new original material. This double album stays as a vinyl witness of what was the greatest progressive rock outfit in Spain. The Wah Wah edition includes the two tracks of the rare Funciona 12", 'I Can't Quit You Baby' and 'Improvisando con Geno,' two recordings from the same sessions that surfaced in the early '80s when Apollo Records reissued both Màquina! LPs. Comes in original gatefold art and reproduces the original 8 page booklet." Strictly limited to 500 copies.
