Title: Blops
Format: 3 LP Box Set
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $74.00
"This box starts a series of several releases in the near future: all releases of one band in one box, all with the original covers. Blops made 3 albums in Chile, all incredibly rare. The music is most beautiful. If you think you like El Congreso, you love Kissing Spell and Embrujo you will adore the music of the Blops. The first album from 1970 is pure underground folk with some electric moments, the second from 1971 becomes more electric still with most touching songs which makes you shiver and the third album from 1973 is complete electric and psychedelic with a progressive touch. Members of Kissing Spell + Embrujo (which will be released as a box-set too in the near future) became later members of Blops. The music from underground in Chile is well-known for perhaps the best music in whole South America. The Pacific coast, the influence of Indio music and the tough political pressure in 1973 makes this music so special. A real masterpiece." - Shadoks.

Title: Blops
Format: 3CD Box Set
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $55.00
"This is a 3CD compilation of the rare and beautiful complete works of Chile-based Blops. If you think you like El Congreso, if you love Kissing Spell and Embrujo, you will adore the music of Blops. The first album from 1970 is pure underground folk with some electric moments, the second from 1971 becomes more electric with touching songs which make you shiver and the third album from 1973 is completely electric and psychedelic with a progressive touch. Los Blops formed in 1970 when Eduardo Gatti (vocals and guitars), Julio Villalobos (guitars), Pedro Greene (drums), Andres Orrego (keyboards) and Juan Pablo Orrego (bass) performed covers (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals, Cream, Kinks) in a local club in Isla Negra, with additional changes in the band with the addition of members Sergio Bezard (drums) and Juan Contreras (flute and keyboards). Their first LP was recorded in 12 hours on a two-track machine and produced by DICAP (Discoteca Del Cantar Popular De Las Juventudes Comunistas), a label that was affiliated with Communist youth, whose tapes were later destroyed by the military. Their first concert at the Marconi Theatre showcased their own material and was recorded by a television crew. Their first LP includes a song that became a hymn that generations would continue to sing, "Los Momentos." The LP version of this box sold out quickly, and here is the CD version of it in a beautifully laminated heavy book-box, with 3CDs in jewel cases containing two non-LP extra tracks, limited to 1000 copies." - Shadoks.
