Aquelarre - Candiles (1973)
The second album from this Argentine band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of percussion, drums, flute, bass, clavinet, piano, organ, guitars and Spanish vocals.
This band from Argentina released four albums and then disappeared. A box of all their albums and a live album was released on CD a few years ago and the band still have some fans.
Their self-titled debut album from 1972 was a good blues album. The music was mainly blues, that is.
The band is branching out from their blues base camp on Candiles and is moving towards both stadium, psych and harder rock on this album.
Southern rock is the right label for the music on this album. There is a lot of Lynyrd Skynyrd on this album. There is also some Led Zeppelin too here.
The band is also notable moving towards psych rock on this album. Especially at the end of this forty minutes long album. The best songs are at the end of this album.
Southern rock is dominating most of this album.
The music is somewhere between decent and good throughout these forty minutes. It is an album well worth checking out, indeed.
