A vinyl reissue (presented in the reproduced gatefold sleeve) of a classic South-American psychedelic album, the second LP by Peru's cult heroes LAGHONIA. Originally released in 1971, this album is on par with the country's best records from the era (from f.i. Traffic Sound, We All Together, Black Sugar and Telegraph Avenue). In 1970, after four fantastic singles under the name New Juggler Sound, the Peruvian band formed by Saúl Cornejo (guitar), David Levene (lead guitar), Ernesto Samané (bass), Carlos Salom (organ) and Manuel Cornejo (drums) changed their name to Laghonia and recorded their debut LP "Glue" for the MAG label. It was an album influenced by the British rock of the era to which they added fiery guitars full of fuzz and wah-wah, the omnipresent and hypnotic Hammond organ sound and Latin American percussion and rhythms. A perfect mix of the British beat melodies of the mid-60s, Jimmy Hendrix's intense rock, Cream's heavy blues and Santana's Latin rock.
Laghonia returned to the studio in 1971 to record a new LP for MAG. Packaged in a clearly psychedelic gatefold sleeve designed by the band's drummer, Manuel Cornejo, "Etcétera" shares all the elements of the first LP although on this occasion the compositions, while keeping their immediacy and featuring strong melodies and choruses, have a more complex structure, ranging from psychedelia to progressive rock through superb dark King Crimson-esque passages and shining moments of pastoral folk.
