Guruh Gipsy-st,tape/LP,1975/2006(?),Indonesia

Full blown progressive album with great guitar leads, organ, moog, great vocals BUT recorded together with a complete Gamelan Orchestra. This is a killer production. 60 minutes of music only released in Indonesia as a tape (a very rare one indeed)in 1975. Chrisye on vocals (he sells million of albums nowadays) and Guruh Soekarno Putra (the son of the first democratic president Soekarno of Indonesia). 8 musicians and the percussion orchestra. Something in-between Magma, Nice and ELP but with great lead guitar and Indonesian harmonics. This is the very limited Shadoks reissue(450 copies) and as far as i know already out of print.

Gosh what a discovery! I'm not so enthusiastic about the guitar but the rest is fascinating. It goes far beyond the progrock idiom. Many thanks.
