Amoeba Review

Daniel Tures, Hollywood 01/22/2014

Nicaraguan singer-guitarist Lovo recorded this masterpiece in 1976, and somehow it never got officially released, despite being THE absolute acme, ultimate, most-high peak of Latin psych-groove stoniness I've ever heard! This is where Santana, Malo and the Latin Playboys are trying to go, but it's on a higher plane that any of those cats have ever achieved (in my humble opinion). Every tune is a moody, soulful electric groove that somehow mutates into 10 minutes of percussion, spacey synth noodling and King Tubby-worthy echo games. The whole thing is a gorgeous mind journey as heavy as any cosmic '70s slop from Funkadelic to Lee "Scratch" Perry to Can to Zappa. Read the booklet too for his action-packed life story, from getting shot in a hijacking attempt to organizing rock festivals to running a seafood biz in Miami. All hail the Numero Group as always!
