No UK,  no USA,  no Uruguay,  but Columbia. This Genesis comes from Columbia,  and we can say its a shame they used such a common name,  as their music is absolutely unique! Were very,  very proud to introduce you to this amazing band that for some reasons we cant understand has never had the recognition deserved. Founded by Humberto Monroy (ex- Speakers) in the very early 70s,  they released a bunch of lps,  of which this is the second one. This same titled album,  their second,  was recorded in March 1974 and released by Famoso (a Codiscos sub- label). Its a record that is still unmatched in its field. Flutes,  acoustic,  electric & 12 string guitars,  percussions,  bass,  occasional harmonica and brilliant vocals offer an unusual and charming sound in the folk,  rock & psychedelic veins,  but always with a wonderful Andinean folk feel. Most of the tracks are written by Humberto but the more famous number included on the album,  which received a lot of radio airplay in Columbia at the time,  was a chilling cover of '' Como decirte cuanto te amo''  by Cat Stevens. Also,  the psychedelic sounding '' Don Simon''  was probably their major success. Spanish languaged lyrics praise the beauty of the environment and contain social message in favour of farmers,  natives & lower classes people.
