Survival Research presents a reissue of Embrujo's self-titled album, originally released in 1971. Chilean prog band Embrujo began as El Embrujo Ques Besa or Kissing Spell, formed by the guitarist, singer, and drummer Carlos Fernandez with chief songwriter Juan Carlos "Tato" Gomez on bass and vocals and Ernesto "Kiko" Murillo on lead guitar, with organist/flautist Ernesto Aracena and pianist/flautist Guillermo Olivares joining later. Signing to Camilo Fernandez's Arena Producciones in 1970, debut LP Los Pajaros was issued under the Kissing Spell moniker, but Chile's unstable political climate, subject to CIA meddling, saw them renamed Embrujo for their coveted second album, the self-titled disc mixing subtle Latin elements within their beautifully-delivered songs of quietly contemplative psychedelic rock. A must-have for all South American psych fans out there. Edition of 500.
