Back this week with some excellent soulful South American psych. Los Jokers hail from Paraguay, a small country (by South American standards) nestled in between Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia. Recorded here on the Argentinian Parnaso label, Los Jokers give us the spectacular “Solamente Soul”, the clear winner on an otherwise hit or miss LP.
I first heard “Solamente Soul” on a mix by DJ Ferrari who always generously shares excellent and rare music, and was finally able to track down a copy for myself from a friend who recently returned from an extended trip to Brazil. Props to both of those dudes. I love this one!
UPDATE: I just added one more song from the LP called “Dientes de Perro” (or Dog Teeth), labeled on the LP sleeve as “Afro Beat”. Hope you dig this too.
NOTE: There are two different covers for this LP. One as shown here, and another with a small photo of the band surrounded by a red border.
