Laghonia "Etcetera" CD reissue of excellent early 70s South American psychedelic progressive rock. More progressive than their "Glue" album this one takes more chances, but both albums are considered classics in the genre. "The band improved their songwriting, got more complex, and remind sometimes of early Jethro Tull, King Crimson music, sometimes progressive, sometimes folky or mystic, but always intense and catchy, excellent fuzz and wah-wah guitars, magic Hammond B-2 organ and a variety of rhythms, all English lyrics."
Peruvian outfit's album originally released in 1971, the album showed the bands songwriting getting more complex and is similar at times to early Jethro Tull, King Crimson etc, sometimes progressive, sometimes folky or esotheric, but always intense and catchy. English lyrics, excellent fuzz and wah-wah guitars, magic Hammond B-2 organ and a variety of rhythms. It comes with outstanding original artwork, a true psychedelic painting by M. Cornejo.
"The second World In Sound reissue of Laghonia, the EtCetera album originally released in 1971.The band improved their songwriting, got more complex, and remind sometimes of early Jethro Tull, King Crimson music, sometimes progressive, sometimes folky or mystic, but always intense and catchy, excellent fuzz and wah-wah guitars, magic Hammond B-2 organ and a variety of rhythms, all English lyrics. It comes with outstanding original artwork, a true psychedelic painting by M. Cornejo, in a foldout cover, 4 bonus tracks incl. 2 never released songs. Comes in a high quality digipack cover, same as the Laghonia's Glue CD with an extra 8 page booklet and amazing original artwork by M. Cornejo. Both Laghonia albums, Glue and EtCetera belong to most legendary and best South American psychedelic collector albums, besides La Revolucion de Emiliano Zapata, Modulo 1000, Toncho Pilatos, Traffic Sound -- Laghonia is a must for psychedelic and progressive Rock freaks -- only original music."
