Arribas Castro - Luarca

con esperanza / amor desesperado

SG Sonoplay Spain 1968

weird mixture of bossa nova, flamenco & spoken word. 'Con Esperanza' certainly has some appealing for those looking for new sounds. Luis Arribas Castro (Luarca) was a quite famous radio speaker & journalist in Barcelona. He helped to build the 60s music scene there and wrote some extraordinaire lyrics for such groups as Los Salvajes or Don y Su Banda
