Originally released as a demo pressing in 1973, "Paloma Mensajera" by Peruvian band Grupo Amigos is without doubt one of the rarest albums from the South American psych scene. Only a handful of copies were pressed for the band members and needless to say, an original copy is impossible to find now. The band was formed by some long-time friends of Sal and Manuel Cornejo, both from legendary Peruvian bands Laghonia and We All Together. Manuel Cornejo played drums on the album recordings and Sal was the session engineer. Influenced by groups like Beatles, Byrds, Stones, Badfinger, Shakers and of course Laghonia and We All Together, the music ranges from terrific guitar psych-rock like "Dirty Girl" (which sounds like an outtake from Laghonias first album) to British sounding pop-psych ("Mr. Taylors Train", "Psychiatrist") harmony pop like Byrds and some beautiful mid-tempos wich show their We All Together influence. On this reissue, youll find the complete recordings of Grupo Amigos, including their only album and a killer non-LP 45 recorded the same year. Features a booklet with liner notes and rare pictures, and our usual carton slimcase. Taken from the original master tapes.
