N ew Juggler Sound, Laghonia, Smog, and the first We All Together (after some members would meet again in the 80s) makethe only saga of rock in Latin America, with 40 years in which although they have had upsdowns, always maintained a solid musical coherence oriented to what today is defined as power pop. The best of his magic is revealed in this collection in all its secret splendor.

New Juggler Sound marks the beginning of this productive and secret saga of rock in Latin America during 1965-1973 essential. In its founding moments (and they were many because their history is full of reinventions) were the national version of the Beatles; however, whenreached the creative freedom and left behind direct influences, they were simply a great rock and roll band with inimitable style.

They started in 1965 rehearsing and meeting at Maranga, Peru. Initially the group was formed by Saul Cornejo and Alberto Miller on guitar and vocals, Eddy Zarauz on bass, Carlos Salom on the Hammond organ, Manuel Cornejo on drums and Alex Abad on percussion. Strongly influenced from the beginning by the Mersey beat prevailing at the time and guided by the exquisite vocal harmonies of the Byrds, released two 45s with RCA Victor. The group rises even higher in the psychedelic stratosphere and progresses to a more acidic style, possibly after hearing the first experiments with wah wah Eric Clapton running on the Yardbirds and Cream developed. Alberto Miller leaves the band and is replaced by Davey Levene a guitar virtuoso who recorded three 45s. New Juggler Sound here reaches its creative fulfillment. The melodic sensibility of Saul Cornejo achieves immediate chemistry with talent acid Davey Levene, plasma and improvisations full of pop colors and others closer to black music. These three 45s are some of the most beautiful jewels that ever emerged not only in the Peruvian psychedelia, but psychedelia to dry.
1968: New Juggler Sound changed its name Laghonia and initiates a new phase with Glue, a first LP which it is actually a collection of new Juggler Sound, with the exception of Neighbor and My love themes, announcing the new direction of the group with a higher prevalence of keyboards and creating atmospheres, probably influenced by the open melodic range by Todd Rundgren with Nazz. The new style of Laghonia be appreciated in its fullness in his second LP, et cetera, and the single World Full of Nuts b / w We all.
In 1970 Saul Cornejo accepts a proposal of Carlos Guerrero to join a project that seeksrecreate the sound of bands like the Iveys / Badfinger and Wings, which is clearly manifested in its first LP. The group, called We All Together, beats speech level, recovering the time of its inception in which the harmonies prevailed vocales.En 1971 Ernesto Samamé founded Smog, a parallel group incompany of Manuel Guerrero on guitar and vocals and Eduardo Vasquez battery. They record 45 bright and dissolved. Meanwhile, We All Togetherrecorded their second LP in 1973 and separated. During the second half of the 70s, in that dark time when the rock in Peru literally died, his latest reincarnation under the name of You is published...........
