(Two albums on one CD): Both albums by Argentina’s best-loved symphonic rock band on one disc. Los Crucis were formed in August of 1974, and in a short time became one of the few symphonic rock bands from South America to have any success, thanks to a sound reminiscent of foreign groups like Yes, Camel or Focus.
Charlie Garcia of Sui Generis signed on as producer, which led to the release of the band’s debut album in 1975. Not much time elapsed before the second album also hit the streets. The four songs of “Los delirios del marisca” were a great improvement compared to those of the first LP—only one track featured vocals on an album filled with complex songs full of challenging rhythms changes. The sound quality was astonishing for the time: the record was mixed and cut by Jack Adams at the Criteria Studios in Miami (USA)—every Argentine band's dream had finally come true. Crucis was invited to make an extensive US tour; they surprised audiences with fabulous concerts that traveled the spectral corners of jazz and symphonic rock. Upon their return to Argentina, Crucis broke up, apparently due to conflicts between Gustavo Montesano (the main composer in Crucis) and the rest of the group.
