Label: LION PRODUCTION

Release date: 30/09/2007

Barcode: 0778578061722

Catalog no.: LION0000617

Item ID: 289480

This disc is a departure from the other reissues in our Uruguayan music series. Its not remotely in a psychedelic or rock idiom; it was not released on the mighty Sondor label. Yet when given the opportunity to reissue these "lost" sessions, we did not hesitate for a moment. This music is funky and jazzy, groovy and urban, even sounding like Fela (on Goldenwings at least); it has the sunny feel of sweltering days on South American beaches, but it also has a heavy dose of the grittiness of mid 1970s New York City. There are connections to the great bands of Uruguay, of course: both Fattoruso brothers, so successful with their beat band Los Shakers, greatly admired the work of the much less successful Eduardo Mateo, Ruben Rada and their band El Kinto. Opa had their own style, and the critical acclaim for their recorded legacy would soon eclipse on an international level that of anything else from their native land. Included are versions of songs which would later be re-recorded the following year for Opas debut album for Milestone Records. Rhythm-laden tracks that range from the heavily funkified to chilled out, shimmering, and trance-inducing. A 16-page booklet includes band history and photos.
