October Equus - Memories Vol. 1 (professionally made CDR)
October Art 1
Memories Vol. 1 is an archival/documentary release. It features excellent sounding rehearsal recordings when the group was preparing for their concerts at MamFest and Gouveia in 2009. These recordings feature drummer Mario Rivera, who only appeared with the group on these two dates and is not documented in any other way with the group. So, essentially, this is a 'live without an audience' release. It features somewhat to very different versions of their work, including material only found on Charybdis, their 2nd album, which is notoriously hard to source. Great, complex, tension & release from this quintet, who really embody the 'avant'progressive' esthetic. This was self-released by the band in a limited edition of only 200 copies and is well worth your investment if you are a fan. Conditionally highly recommended!
