Gualberto - Vericuetos. 1976 Spain

Vericuetos is a Spanish progressive rock classic. Borrowing heavily from the music of India and regional Spain (Andalusia especially), Gualberto incorporates these sounds with a classic Anglo progressive rock perspective for a truly unique blend. Gualberto's guitar style is soulful and rocks hard in places. He also contributes quite a bit of sitar for this album. Plenty of violin and String Synthesizer as well. A must discovery.

Personal collection
LP: 1976 Movieplay
CD: 1994 Lost Vinyl / Fonomusic

My copy is the gatefold. There also exists an original pressing that is a single sleeve.
