Product Details

An exact replica of the original Clave label LP release of fourteen crucial tracks by these Uruguayan legends, whose line-up includes members of Totem and Limonada, and features the compositional abilities of poet/panhandler and acid casualty Eduardo Mateo and his alter-ego, candombe legend Ruben Rada. El Kinto began their brief but eventful life in music playing in the dark shadows at Orfeo Negro (Black Orpheus), a night club near the Portones de Carrasco in Montevideo, Uruguay. Inspired by the way Tropicalistas like Os Mutantes were transforming the pop music of Brazil, El Kinto embraced their own native music forms-but, as always, they went a step further: they integrated candombe and bossa nova into beat music, but they also added their own notion of "psicodelics." They experimented with newness in all it's variety-new sounds from their guitars, new types of vocal delivery, new ways of striking the drums (with little brooms, with gavels or their hands). As one journalist noted in 1969, "El Kinto, directed by the brilliant Mateo, and amplified to the maximum... creates a frenzy of rhythmic music in which-with force and conviction-pure wave 'beat' is synthesized with the warmth of the African drums." the result of the group's tireless experiments is music which sounds fresh and engaging today. In a world dominated by the commercialization of everything-including (although it is difficult to comprehend)-the arts, all we can say is, thank god for El Kinto! Now, on to the presentation-the highest quality mastering and pressing (done at Acoustech Mastering/RTI in California, the same people who master and press every title that audiophile label Classic Records makes); the resulting LP is housed in a poly-lined sleeve, inside an ultra-heavy 1960's style jacket, which is housed in a loose-fitting plastic sleeve. Inside you will find a double-fold insert packed with photos, detailed band history, and lyrics for this most important of Uruguayan bands, printed on 100% recycled paper. The LP labels are replicas of the Sondor originals. A top of the line pressing all the way. Limited edition of 500 copies.
