ORION'S BEETHOVEN - Superangel

Orion's Beethoven formed in Argentina in the late 60's, but it took them over four years to release their debut album. 'Superangel' eventually came out in 1973, and was a good progressive effort, influenced in parts by The Nice and ELP with the inclusion of classical excerpts in the music. Guest musicians provide sax and percussion, and the sound is complex enough to please most progressive rock fans. The second track is a twelve minute suite which incorporates acoustic and hard rock sections, as well as a fine sax solo from Chachi Ferreyra. The final track 'Hijo Del Relampago' has a harder rock edge that much of what has gone before, and this could be the starting point for the direction that the band took for their second album
