"Chilean Psychedelic Music" — pretty nicely descriptive, I would think. It sounded better to me the first time compared to last night, but there are some good moments on here. "Foto de Primera Comunión" is strangely hypnotic to me, and "La Muerte de Mi Hermano" is a right-good protest song from a tumultuous Chile in the late Sixties and early Seventies. "Pirómano" sounded pretty cool to these ears, Aguaturbia is sure to delight proper-minded people everywhere, and "Magnetism" is a most curious-sounding record, sort of a "25 or 6 to 4" gone horribly haywire. I still have only heard a little bit of the Love, Peace & Poetry series, but it's not let me down yet.
