MALON-"EL CAMINO" "DALE NEGRO", LP, 1972, ARGENTINA/FRANCE




Featuring the remarkable Miguel Abuelo (check out his killer work with Nada, if not in the know) it's sort of amazing to me that this pearl of the South American psych/prog scene has not yet been posted somewhere given the great number of blogs devoted to the topic, but there ya go. Malon were a Argentine/French unit whose sound is so exotic and sensual, you'll wish you could slather it on your skin. I hear everything from France's flute proggin' NWW-lister Jean-Cohen Solal and the badass bandito psych of Mexico's La Revolucion De Emiliano Zapata to Peru's Traffic Sound and even (don't sneer) instrumental Santana in here.
