This ‘single inventory release’ album was released in Spain on the EMI/Harvest label in 1975 and limited numbers finally arrived in the UK in 1977, which is when i purchased it. My copy has been well played, and as it wasn’t the best of pressings to start with, i have been holding off releasing it.
I recently found out that it had a limited release on CD in 1994, which has (like the LP) become quite rare, but i’ve managed to track down a copy, which was the source used for this release.
For those who are ‘sensitive’ to Non-English language albums, i’d best warn you this is in Spanish. But if you let that get in the way, you’ll be missing out on some great songs, even though the album clocks in at a shade under 27 minutes!
This latest (and last) decode of this album finally shows the mix better than any before. I always felt it wasn’t as good as it could possibly be, but now i feel ‘Phoenix’ has shown it as it should be heard. It may not be everyone’s taste but it’s one i’ve always enjoyed since buying the album.
