Strictly Discs

Killer unreleased 1973 post-bop, avant jazz album from Argentina, with highly political texts. The missing link in Argentina's jazz history finally sees the light.Coraje Buenos Aires was recorded in 1973, conceived as a follow-up to the historic Bronca Buenos Aires (1971). More explicitly than it's predecessor, the texts in Coraje denounced the atrocities of the military junta that ruled the country, and the album was inevitably censored before being released. The tapes, thought to have been burnt and forever lost, were recently discovered in the archive of the late Jorge Lopez Ruiz, allowing us to finally listen to Coraje fifty years after being recorded.Mastered from the original tapes by Pablo Lopez Ruiz.Includes foldout sheet with bilingual notes by author Jose Tcherkaski and an English translation of the album's song texts. Tracklisting:A1. Pido perdon por los muertos (8:53)A2. Creo que ayer me asesinaron (6:42)B1. ¿Quienes tendran la vida por delante? (6:35)B2. Coraje Buenos Aires (9:29)
