 Opinions and other informations:

    

One of the bands that can be placed into the Andalusian Rock movement, more from a commercial point of view than from an actual one, because some of their members were from Madrid and others were sessionist. They were a commercial response to the success of other bands like Triana or Medina Azahara.. Closer to pop than Triana, this fact avoided a real appreciation among the prog public. Recently some of them have rejoined (Roca, the Marinelli brothers and Álvaro Girón) and I saw them even on T.V. In 1998. In "Noche Andaluza" had the collaboration of Paco de Lucía and in Dunas, Carles Benavent, Josep Kitflus and others. And in "Aire Cálido de Abril" were Enrique de Melchor (guitar), Tito Duarte and Javier Benet (percussion), José María Guzmán and Jesús Conde (vocals) helped José Manuel Iñesta


In addition to their official discography there also exist a compilation of all their recordings for CBS (2003).
