Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"From Chile 1971. 500 numbered LPs, heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing, 2-page insert. "The band Kissing Spell changed their name to Embrujo in early 1970 due to the political climate in Chile causing it to be less than ideal for a band with an English name. Embrujo is the Spanish translation of the word Spell (bewitched). So Embrujo is the same band as Kissing Spell and the album came out on Arena Records in 1971. Among the great albums from Chile like Blops, Aguaturbia, Los Jaivas and Escombros, this album is just amazing, just like their first. Beautiful compositions and instrumentation, very well played, strong vocals and poetic lyrics; we would vote this album as one of the best from the of South America. Chile seems to be the county for extraordinary pop and underground songs going right into the heart. What a shame that after 1973 until 1990 (Pinochet dictatorship), no more bands could work anymore. We are missing a lot of great future albums by those bands." -Shadoks

"The band Kissing Spell changed their name to Embrujo in early 1970 due to the political climate in Chile and conditions being less than ideal for a band with an English name. "Embrujo" is Spanish for "spell" or "bewitched," and their album came out on Arena Records in 1971. This record sits among the great albums from Chilean bands such as Blops, Aguaturbia, Los Jaivas and Escombros, with beautiful compositions and instrumentation, strong vocals and poetic lyrics, and is quite possibly one of the best albums in South American history. Chile seemed to be a breeding ground for extraordinary, heartfelt pop and underground music. What a shame that during the period between 1973-1990 the Pinochet dictatorship made it difficult for so many promising bands to find work. We are missing a lot of great future albums by those bands." -Shadoks
