Contrabando - Los Brincos

Contrabando
Los Brincos (The Leapers or The Jumpers) were the best Spanish '60s pop band, acclaimed, then and now, as the equivalent of the Spanish Beatles.
Contrabando is arguably their most complete LP; recorded in London By Larry Page - under the stylistic influence of Swinging London and such refined works as Revolver, The Zombies' Odessey and Oracle and The Kinks' Something Else - it was released in 1968 and includes the hits Lola, (no relation to The Kinks song) El Pasaporte, So Good To Dance and Nadie Te Quiere Ya. The sleeve was designed by filmmaker Iván Zulueta.
Contrabando proved the band's viability after members Juan Pardo and Junior had left to start their own career as a duo. The other original members, Fernando Arbex and Manolo González, quickly rebuilt the four-piece with Ricky Morales - Junior's younger brother - and Vicente Fernández. Los Brincos remained faithful to their beat group aesthetic, but at this point also opened up to more eclectic and playful musical and conceptual possibilities.
The album was recorded at Abbey Road, with engineer Geoff Emerick. It was essential to establish themselves in the international market and several songs were recorded in both English and Spanish. In order to help realise their international ambitions the group, enlisted the services of Larry Page, who had handled both The Kinks and The Troggs with enormous success. But all of Page's contacts weren't enough for the band to break through in the UK, where two singles were released on the producer's own, Page One, label. Still, Lola and El Pasaporte were big hits in Spain, making it clear that Juan & Junior hadn't taken the four-piece's audience with them.
On this El edition of Contrabando, the original album is augmented by all of the outstanding pop-psych single A & B sides released by Los Brincos between 1967-69.
