VINYL FORMAT. Deluxe full-color gatefold red wax sealed sleeves, with detailed liner notes in English/Spanish and pictures. From the compilers of the acclaimed Andergraun Vibrations series, comes Pentecostes Vibrations, an incredible comp featuring some of the rarest and unknown Spanish Xian recordings from the '60s/'70s. While searching for rare records to be included in the Andergraun volumes, the Hundergrum diggers found some recordings that were too Xian to be included on that series, so the idea of Pentecostes Vibrations was born. It features Xian bands or groups that recorded for Christian/religious labels. Let's not forget that Spain during the '60s and '70s was under the Catholic fascist regime of Franco, so pop music was inevitably affected by religion. But you won't find any lightweight Christian singers here. Just garage, beat and psych sounds. They've rescued records from old religious libraries, flea-markets, born-again-Christian boot sales and private collections. All tracks are taken from original 45s and LPs, including some unknown private pressings and ultra-obscure 45s with only a handful of copies known among collectors. Only two tracks were previously compiled but in a inferior, atrocious sound quality. Here you'll hear them in pristine audio quality. The difference is so astounding that they seem like totally different tracks! Dig the killer garage Farfisa sounds of Los Cirros and Enarak, rural fuzz by Gaston Jocou, acid-folk by Units, teen garage folk-rock by Conjunto Luz Verde and Bremen's, proto-prog-fuzz by Shalom, xian-psychedelic-beat by Los Amis and Proa, obscure xian psych rock by Pablo Y Richard, baroque acid-psych by Mil-Lers.
