Hard Rock (Argentina)
Original release 1975
Hard rock from 70s Argentina -- by a group who remind us of some of the headier Peruvian groups from a few years before! Relax have a sound that's quite unlike their name -- very strong guitar work from lead singer Daniel Grasso, played in a full-on, fuzzed-up way that almost hits a punkish intensity at times -- but which moves into spacier rock territory at others. The liner notes indicate that there's nothing known about the original group -- but the record has shown up as a South American psyche classic from the 70s -- with 6 tracks that include "Al Umbral Del Futuro", "Correr Del Tiempo", "Padre Un Amigo Que Se Fue", "Ganar El Sol", and "Esencia Real".
