CD reissue of the third and fourth record from Billy Bond Y La Pesada. Volume 3 from 1972 is made up of two lengthy suites, 'Lado 1 -- Acustico' and 'Lado 2 -- Eectrica Camplementaria.' Released after their October 20, 1972 show at the Luna Park stadium in Buenos Aires where rioting between kids and police ensued at the prompting of Billy Bond and after which the band was promptly blacklisted by many government officials and clubs. The blood red LP jacket made direct reference to that night: Tontos (operita)... Habia una vez ) ... Anyone expecting more freaked out rock was in for the shock of a lifetime. Tontos was instead a collection of bizarre tape edits and sub-musique concrete, heavily laden with reverb, wailing, and fuzzed-out guitars. Volume 4 was Billy's final recording from '73 and includes heavy-hitters such as 'No Nos Paran Mas,' 'Hacia Algun Lugar,' 'Gracias Al Cielo,' 'Estamos Hartos,' 'Ano 1939,' 'Algo Esta Por Suceder,' and more all interestingly segued together with various animal noises and other sound effects.
