This Mega Rare Spanish Phychedelic Treasure Tabaco, from Barcelona released that lp in 1971 only in 50 copies.Reissued 2002 from Wah Wah records plus bonus track recorded straight from the master tapes. …~


Tabaco originally hailed from Barcelona, more precisely from the area known as El Valles - with the capitol Sabadell. Jordi Molet (drums), Eduardo Gonzalez (bass guitar / organ) and Josep M. Abella (guitar, vocals), better known as "Los Duendes”. as they called themselves when they first appeared on a stage, made little more history than playing a few local gigs and smashing one curious world record that until then was held by a Swedish rock outfit in June 71 Los Duendes played a 27 hour non-stop music gig (the Swedish record was 26 hours of non-stop rock and roll). 

This bizarre adventure earned them some publicity in the local newspapers. It was probably an amazing experience, but it did little else for them. Actually that was to be the last live appearance of Los Duendes as such, as the incorporation of a new member in May 1971 would see new influences thrown in the combo’s sound and therefore a new name was chosen: Tabaco. 

Mariano Escria (guitar) joined the band and brought with him his devotion for progressive music. Back in the sixties and seventies the hotels from the Spanish coast were always contracting bands to play at the hotels night clubs in order to attract the younger tourists coming from all parts of Europe -and due to their new style of music Tabaco were hired for a season at the Hotel Corona in Calella de la Costa. 
In October, the outfit entered the studio to record what was to be their first LP. Although very few months had passed since Mariano joined in. the album shows clearly the new direction the band was taking. Such classics as ‘Desintegracion’ were created during this period. 
Their unorthodox play and takes on classics like “Lady Samantha” as well as their own compositions such as “She Everything she is” or "Dia sin luz” make the album to this day a classic and a collector’s item. As far as the band was concerned, the album didn’t bring them fame or fortune, but they had the chance to promote it. 
They shared the stage with some of the biggest Spanish names on the band circuit, among them Los Canaries, Mustang, Strex and Brincos. just to name 
a few. They also won a second residence in the Hotel Corona for the summer of 1972. Tabaco kept playing until they called it a day in 1973. 
Mariano quit the music business. Eduardo still plays to this day. Jordi joined a jazz hand. Josep M* reformed Los Duendes. with a totally new line-up that keeps the spirit of the original group. They are playing hits of The Shadows. CJiff Richard and rock and roll classics in Barcelona night clubs…CD Liner Notes…~


Generally speaking, in the psychedelic era the further the music was formulated from its English-speaking cultural centers, the stranger and more garbled it became. Such was the case to some degree with the Spanish band Tabaco, which recorded the Desintegracion album in late 1971. Sung mostly in English, the record was a mishmash of punky garage rock with heavy blues and soul influences, fierce Santana-like instrumental rock with rocket noises (the title track), brooding psychedelia introduced by flamenco-like guitar, and easy listening flamenco-flavored pop balladry. Although longer on enthusiastic eclecticism than originality and top-level chops, it was a fitfully imaginative effort that, whether by unconscious virtue of the band’s distance from the U.S. and U.K. or not, boasted a ragged eccentricity. The Barcelona group grew out of a band called Los Duendes, which in June 1971 set a world record by playing 27 hours of rock & roll nonstop. Shortly after that, their name was changed to Tabaco and more progressive influences were incorporated. They disbanded in 1973. ~ Richie Unterberger….~


Fantastic mega-rare Spanish heavy psych/rock album from 1971. Trippy effects, spacey guitars, funky bass and dreamy keyboards dominate what is essentially a funky blues based rock album in a similar vein to Cream/Hendrix etc. Stunning heavy psychedelic rock with a monstrous wah wah fuzz guitar and mixed with some of the most psychotic spaced out sound effects ever and all vocals in English It was recorded in Barcelona in 1971 in the same studios as Pan Y Regaliz. The album was released as a local pressing with a few hundred copy’s only. The 2nd CD has an unheard version of the album and various outtakes.Easily one of the best Spanish psych albums….~


Tabaco was a Catalan progressive underground group, specifically from the “lanera” population of Sabadell, which in 1971 joined the Maquina, Smash, Gong in the progressive psychedelic Underground movement, editing for the Spiral record house only 50 copies of their album “Disintegration”. 
The first theme “Disintegration” is a clear psychodelic reference to the “In a Gadda given life” of Iron Butterfly, as they did also Attila in his “The beginning of the end”. Eduardo Gonzalez gives us a true demonstration of the organism’s vistuosity with the delirious guitar solos of Mariano Escriu. 
Then we have more songs in the wave of “nailing” to the rock coming from the American west coast, blues songs such as (2) “Tabaco”, or the psychedelic blues sung in Spanish (3) “Day without light”, or acoustic ( 4) “She” with a magnificent organ solo, or the acid soul of (5) “Born to be free”, or the hippie (6) “Lady Samantha” or classic rock and roll in (7) “I feel glad "And (8)” Rollin 'my thing “and to finish a classic blues in (9)” Fredom blues “with again another great organ demonstration by Eduardo and a great vocal performance in English by Josep M. Abella. 
The rest are versions or instrumental of the 9 songs that make up "Disintegration”, highlighting the instrumental of “She”, with acoustic guitar and organ. 
The music of tobacco compared with that made by Smash, Vertice, Maquina, ect .. I think that nothing has to envy them, very well executed instrumentally, without complexities but very underground for the time…..~



I do not understand much what happened with this record. Currently for the modest price of 800 euros you can do with a copy of the original edition, dated 1971. I have read that only 50 copies were pressed, and it seems that it was included in a list of the best rock albums progressive history that caused the desperate search for fans of the genre and the consequent inflation in the second-hand market. 
Of this, nothing says the libreto of the disc, that what counts is that Tabaco arose from the ashes of the Duendes, group known to hold the record of being playing during 27 continuous hours. 
I am surprised by its inclusion in progressive rock. For me, at the most, there are a couple of songs that can be included in the genre, perhaps the ballads Days Without Light and She, or even I’m very clueless about the labels. 
Disintegration, the theme that opens the album, is in the groovy wave that brought Barabbas to world fame and Born To Be Free is funk with some gutarrazo. Then there is American rock very close to the blues in Tabaco and Freedom Blues, the rocanroll in I Feel Glad and Rollin 'My Thing, and a version of Lady Samantha by Elton John that flirts with psychedelia and that seems to me removed from the white disk of The Beatles. Of course, the sound of all of them is gloriously rogue and that is a point in favor. 
I think that the booklet of this edition in double CD gives the key, the group was hired for two seasons as a resident band of the Hotel Corona on the Costa Brava, with the idea of ​​attracting young tourists from Europe, and for my Tobacco they were that, a solvent group that tried to touch all the clubs that at that time liked the youth. I imagine them with a little basket with their fifty copies of the disc to sell them to the guiris that passed by there. 
The original disc had 10 songs, and it has had two reeditions, Wah Wah, also on vinyl record, which added as an extra an acoustic version of Days Without Light, and then this one from Red Lounge Records on double CD, although it comes loaded with 16 extra tracks between instrumental, acoustic or different versions of the same nine songs, inexplicably does not include the other version that appeared in the original edition, the Blue Suede Shoes popularized by Elvis Presley. Another fact that makes me think that Tabaco was very far from the progressive, but then someone has tried to strain it, I’m not sure why. 
Tabaco were in this album Mariano Escriu Sole, Josep M. Abella Prats, Jordi Molet Marles and Eduardo González Ponsa…..~
