***Long in the works reissue of this amazing and little know gem, from 1972. Born in Miami, Florida to an American father and Venezuelan mother, BILL QUICK split the USA to Madrid, Spain in the early ‘70s. Once there he quickly landed a recording deal with famous producer ALAIN MILHAUD of the Explosion label, and set to work on this, his sole LP release. Sessions went down with an impressive cast of up to eleven players in the studio. A finely balanced mix of sounds that drifts between throbbing electric full band groove and gentle acid folk. When Bill wants to rock, things get downright funky, with a wickedly hard-hitting rhythm section, pumping organ, scorching electric leads, and flipped out acoustic guitars all locking into some seriously tight jams. Then the next minute the mood swings and you’re deep into some beautifully fragile and introspective folk meditations; often just two acoustic guitars, Bill’s lyrics, and huge, angelic, vocal harmonies all weaving together into lush tapestries of sound. The album was released only in Spain and Brazil, to very little interest, and quickly became yet another great album lost to obscurity. At least until now. Packaged in a heavyweight gloss coated exact reproduction of the original cover, including the the original double sided insert, as well as a huge new full color foldout insert which reproduces at nearly full size the totally different Brazilian version of the album art. Plus extensive notes by album musicians SALVADOR DOMINGUEZ & MARK GOTTSCHALL, and ALEX CARRETERO. Pressed on 180gm audiophile grade vinyl and limited to 1,000 copies.
