Traffic Sound - Traffic Sound aka Tibet's Suzettes (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-HGB-122-13
"Recorded in 1970, this features eight tracks of highly original material, full of “all out” improvised solos—some people call this their finest album. By this point, Traffic Sound had a strong, mature sound, unique in its mixture of psychedelic rock with Andean and Latin music. The hit songs ‘Chicama Way’ and ‘Tibet’s Suzettes’ (the album is often referred to under this name) revealed the group’s inner thoughts and the atmosphere that surrounded Peruvian youths in the early seventies. From the powerful rock of ‘Yesterday’s game’ and ‘What you need and what you want,’ to the soft psychedelia of ‘Those days have gone’ and ‘America,’ this album is a must for any psychedelic collection. The group were very active on an international level after this LP was released, and never quite were able to reach this quality again. Not only were they were playing at the Tiffany and Galaxy Clubs and at private parties, but they also went on a tour paid by Braniff Airlines. The South American tour, the first one by a Peruvian rock group, took them to Chile, Argentina and Brazil. They were welcomed everywhere as pioneers of the new rock sound that was under formation in South America."
