Tanguito aka Tango aka Ramsés VII, a rock/folk singer who wrote "La Balsa" an early hit for Los Gatos that is called the originators of Argentine rock, and who later became a major influence on the rock scene, however he died at the young age of 27 after a drug addiction. This release is a collection of demo sound sources recorded during the Mandioca period, an independent record label that he was signed at the time, and was released posthumously in 1973. The songs were written under unusual circumstances, such as being under the influence of hard drugs at the time of recording and not coming back to the studio for a few days. It's an acid and drone-flavored folk, as you'd expect, but it's a work that we want you to experience with all its charm, like Syd Barrett. A historical album that should not be missed when talking about Argentine rock. Original Mono version (not gatefold) from 1973.

アルゼンチン・ロックの元祖と呼ばれるLos Gatosの初期ヒット曲”La Balsa”を手掛けその後もロックシーンで大きな影響を持ちながらも薬物中毒の末に27歳の若さで亡くなったロック/フォークシンガーTanguito aka Tango aka Ramsés VII。本作は本人の死後に当時契約していたインディペンデントレーベル マンディオカ期に録音されていたデモ音源をまとめリリースされた73年作。録音時には既にハードドラッグに手を染めておりスタジオに来ては数日帰ってこないなど、普通の状態ではない中で書かれた楽曲の数々が収録されています。想像通りのアシッドやドローン風味なフォークといった趣ですが、シド・バレットなどと同様にその魅力もろもろひっくるめて体験してみて下さい。色々説のあるネビアとの関係性やスピネッタも長年カバーをし続けてきたアルゼンチン・ロックを語る上では外せない一枚。73年のオリジナル盤( 見開きでないタイプ)。
