ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An old tape missing for more than 30 years in warm and humid Cuba. Nine rock songs recorded in 1967 in two hurried hours, with borrowed instruments and without previous rehearsal.

Four students, each about 17 years old, who filled the Havana student underground with the peace logo and forbidden music for two years. Music that sent people to jail, or provoked strong discrimination just by listening to it.

An incredible performance with professional standards, recorded in a completely censored environment. A musical program with covers from the Kinks, Beatles, and more, to original Cuban rock songs written by Los Pacificos. A unique session stolen from a system that locked doors to rock and peace.

A story that earned the cover of the entry call for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in New York City.

The only known recording of a Cuban rock band from the sixties.

Dedicated to Carlos Davila, the youngest Pacifico, who died in the Angola war, in Africa, in the seventies (many people are still asking why). Released in Digipak with an excellent design using testimonial photos.

Los Pacificos (the Peacemen), Havana 1967: a reality piece to add to your collection.

Awesome! Great band, sweet memories, you guys were courageous!
Awesome! You guys were the only group with guts to do what you did under the Castro regime. Aside from the courageous act the band sounded great. How many memories and looking in restrospective, there was talent, passion for the music and a great dosis of rebelion. Dynamite results! Gracias a todos lo que hicieron posible que este disco se pudiera publicar para el disfrute del que no los conoció entonces ... y para nosotros que vivimos esa época y tuvimos la suerte de ser tocados por vuestra varita mágica.

My review
As A Cuban American Born in Ohio who is Libertarian, Los Pacificos symbolizes for me freedom even in the darkest hours. Down with the Communist Conservatives such as Castro, The Republicans, and Democrats. The Latins including Cuba need Los Pacificos and Evolution. Los Pacificos were the most courageous.

Unimaginable
I don't own this CD, after hearing it at the home of a relative of one of the band members, I am buying several copies. It sounds like something they rehearsed in a studio many times before choosing the right tracks, but not so, it was recorded in just one take - unimaginable! I was told they later faced much repression for having recorded "capitalist" sounding music. Thanks that the recordings survived, we have these gems today.

GRACIAS POR HABER EXISTIDO
SI ES LA TERCERA VEZ QUE VEO EL PROGRAMA DONDE USTEDES SALEN GRACIAS POR QUE SE PUEDE DECIR QUE GRACIAS A USTEDES CUBA NO FUE LA CENICIENTA DEL ROCK

julio mendez

best non-political songs from aresticted country
they could have complained about world politics, but instead they tried to make us feel glad that we're alive and well, while we sing and dance, rap sucks, music to make you feel alive is the best cure for world peace

glauco

A musical treasure unheard for more than 30 years...
Their name was LOS PACIFICOS and they were censored in communist Cuba. After 30 years there is a CD that makes justice to them and that also brings together good performances and musical history...

Remembering the "good young times" under pressure of the communist Castro's regi
Remembering the "good young times" in the '60 and '70s under pressure of the communist Castro's regimen. Sorry about two of the musicians passed away. Ramon Font, "Monchy" was a friend of mine and i knew Carlitos Davila Miguel who used to ride a motorcycle (1 cilinder CZ 150cc from Checoeslovaquia) before going to Angola to died for nothing while Castro was getting more rich "take care" of the oil rigs of Rockefeller for millions of dollars. A lot of young cubans died overthere and I don;t her anybody protesting about those useless deads. Another friend who died about the same time of "Monchy" in their fifties, back in Cuba these time, was Jorge Navarro, "George', who nikname me was the name of "Soplin". Goods friends are forever and their memory live in us even after dead. I don't know very well the other two integrants of the "los Pacificos" band, but I remember hearing them when they was playing at the "Community Hebrea Sinagogue located in the corner of Linea street and I street next to the Colegio Cubano "Arturo Montori",in the Vedado neighborhood of la Habana. Good memory I still have and I am 57 years old already. good cubans hippies never died. Down with the maffia cartel of the Castro brothers! Cuba need EVOLUTION no another stupid conservative and socialist REVOLUTION! Long live Cuba free from Them and Forever! Best wishes for the remainning muscians. Alejandro Hernandez ("el Peluo" o "el Soplin")
