Peruvian grooves from Martin Lopez and his combo – music that's got a Latin sound at its core, but which comes off with lots of weird twists and turns as well! As with most Peruvian takes on Latin sounds from up north, there's a nice mixing up of modes going on here that really makes the whole thing nice and fresh – not just New York, Havana, Colombian, or Puerto Rican styles – but a weird hybrid of all of them, served up with some of the more electric experiments going on in Peru at the time. The music's never really psychedelic, but definitely has a knowledge of that world – especially in the tones of the guitar, and the way the tunes are produced – often a lot more trippy than you might expect. The album's the first full length release ever by Martin – and compiles rare singles from the years 1969 to 1971 – titles that include "Mira
", "Pimpollito", "Cocinando", "Sonero", "La Verdad Desnuda", "El Botecito", "Por Que No Te Quedas", and "Mi Razon De Vivir".
