The Distro Tango: El Gusano’s Fantasia del Barrio

el gusano

This just in, limited edition pressing (only 1,000 copies!) of  El Gusano’s Fantasia del Barriobrought to you by the fine folks at Heavy Light Records. Merging Texas Psych and late 60′s / early 70′s Chicano Soul and funk, Fantasia del Barrio has been long sought-after by break hunters and psych collectors. Recorded soon after Eugenio Jaimez returned from a tour of duty in Vietnam, Fantasia del Barrio is his musical meditation on life at war and the Chicano experience at home. Skillfully performed in one marathon recording session, Jaimez and El Gusano embraced the Soul, Funk and psychedelic sounds of their day to craft this lost instrumental concept album. And now it can be yours with just a few clicks of the mouse…and you didn’t even have to spend years digging for it!

Seriously, though. This record is sick. Check it out!
