Key duo from the catalan folk rock scene, joint venture of Ia Clua (from Dos + Un) and Jordi Batiste (one of the leading forces of Maquina!), after the later ones return from military service. Un Gran Dia, the duo's first album, was recorded at the end of 1972 with the help of such outstanding musicians as Manel Joseph (ex Dos + Un, Ia's early band), Joaquin "Max" Suner (Vértice, Tapiman, Iceberg a.o.) & Albert Batiste (Musica Dispersa). The result is an amazing & varied musical tapestry, best heard on the record's first side, a long suite covering from orchestral folk-pop with some psych leanings ("Un Gran Dia", "Max") to straight in-your-face hard rock ("Sleeping Rock") via typical early 70s prog ("Oliba") and uncategorisable experiments which defy all known rules ("Reprise"). Sung both in Catalan and English, this album is a fine example of the craziness and experimentation achieved by the Catalan bands in the early 70s. A piece of wax which went totally unnoticed when first released in a tiny pressing back in the days (thus becoming a big ticket item in the collectors market). Strictly limited to 500 copies. High quality gatefold sleeves reproducing the original artwork from 1972's first press on Diabolo. Includes insert with liner notes by Fermi Puig. Comes with additional promotional poster and a bonus 7" EP in full color P/S containing five amazing unreleased demo versions of some of the best tracks on the album - do not miss it!


Also available: UN GRAN DIA (CD).
