Guadalquivir - Camino Del Concierto (1980)
The second album from this Spanish band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of saxophone, flute, guitars, drums, keyboards and bass.
A guest musician provides synths.
I really liked their 1978 self-titled debut album a lot. It is indeed a very good album and you can read my review here.
The band returned again two years later and released this album. The art-work is very good and I would not mind having this LP as a piece of art.
The music are again Spanish folk music inspired fusion. In this case, a lot more fusion than folk rock.
There are some flamenco here and some other Spanish folk dancing rhythms. Nevertheless, the music is pretty slick fusion.
There are some Al De Meola like guitars here, some nice saxophone solos and some nice keyboards work here.
The music is very nice, but also a bit toothless at times. A bit more bite and some better tracks on this forty-two minutes long album would have been great.... litterary speaking.
It is hard to fault an album like this too as this is a really good fusion album. And that from a band I really rate highly.
