This is a 3CD compilation of the rare and beautiful complete works of Chile-based Blops. If you think you like El Congreso, if you love Kissing Spell and Embrujo, you will adore the music of Blops. The first album from 1970 is pure underground folk with some electric moments, the second from 1971 becomes more electric with touching songs which make you shiver and the third album from 1973 is completely electric and psychedelic with a progressive touch. Los Blops formed in 1970 when Eduardo Gatti (vocals and guitars), Julio Villalobos (guitars), Pedro Greene (drums), Andres Orrego (keyboards) and Juan Pablo Orrego (bass) performed covers (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals, Cream, Kinks) in a local club in Isla Negra, with additional changes in the band with the addition of members Sergio Bezard (drums) and Juan Contreras (flute and keyboards). Their first LP was recorded in 12 hours on a two-track machine and produced by DICAP (Discoteca Del Cantar Popular De Las Juventudes Comunistas), a label that was affiliated with Communist youth, whose tapes were later destroyed by the military. Their first concert at the Marconi Theatre showcased their own material and was recorded by a television crew. Their first LP includes a song that became a hymn that generations would continue to sing, "Los Momentos." Gatti and Orrego later reformed Los Blops in 1978, recording a single: "Los Momentos"/ "La Francisca," but they split again in 1980. The LP version of this box sold out quickly, and here is the CD version of it in a beautifully laminated heavy book-box, with 3CDs in jewel cases containing two non-LP extra tracks, limited to 1000 copies.
