Toncho Pilatos - Killer Mexican Rock '73
My favorite mexican rock record from the early 70s.
From Guadalajara formed by the brothers Alfonso "Toncho" and Rigoberto Guerrero. Oak grove in low, Raul "the Güero" Briceño and Alberto completed the grouping Miguel "the Pie" Lopez in the keyboards. Rigoberto was in charge of the electrical guitar, Toncho acted like multi-instrumentalist singer and (flauta, harmonica, violin and guitar) giving to the grouping an eclectic hile character that included from the crude rock and the blues to classifiable forms of greater elaboration like progressive-symphonic, being his prolonged subject "Last Dance" one of the first and clearer approaches to this sort. They exhibit in addition, the air incorporation folkloric and a greater preoccupation by the letters that most of its Mexican contemporaries. The group Toncho Pilatos was another one of the legend of Guadalajara, Jalisco, to the height of Facade of Stone, the Revolcuión de Emiliano Zapata and the Spiders. After several changes of formation, they were in Los Angeles, under the name of Toncho Indian Braves. Sadley in 1988 Rigoberto Guerrero died and it followed Alfonso to him Guerrero in 1992.
A rare Beauty!
