If we had to say what is the quintessential band of Argentinean Progressive Rock, we would say El Reloj (The Clock); they were the ones who opened the door for a prolific Progressive movement in this South American country despite the fact they were never a truly Symphonic band, as they were mainly inspired by Deep Purple. El Reloj were originally formed by Eduardo Frezza and Willy Gardi in 1970 from the ashes of two bands, "Lagrima" (Tear) and "Los Angeles Salvajes" (The Wild Angels). It was not until 1973 that they released their first single, 'El Mandato' b/w 'Vuelve el Día a Reinar, 'which was a moderate success. The next year they release their biggest hit 'Alguien en Quien Confiar' (Somebody Else To Trust In) and 'Blues del Atardecer' (Sunset Blues) that sold more than 100,000 copies, a record for a native Rock band in those days. In 1975, they released their first LP, with a clear Deep Purple influence but also with some of Uriah Heep's mystic and proggy sound. In 1976, El Reloj changed their style a bit--they approached a Symphonic sound with their second LP, "El Reloj II." This led to the popularity of the band soaring incredibly, but was also the starting point of tensions inside the band. After two concerts in a full "Luna Park" and long tours through Argentina, they dissolved. This disc contains their early singles, plus their first and second albums. Booklet brings the lyrics - A master piece!!
