Pharaway Sounds present No Llores Mas, a compilation of recordings from Morena Y Clara. There were two labels in Spain during the '70s which were essential to understand the birth of the rumba-flamenco-pop genre: Belter and Discophon. Thanks to the work of adventurous in-house producers and sound engineers like Josep Llobell, Joan Barcons and Lauren Postigo, funk, rock, disco and jazz arrangements were incorporated to recordings of folkloric flamenco singers and rumba bands. The result was explosive and the Spanish market was flooded with "gipsy-rock" or "rumba pop" 45s and LPs, some of them highly sought-after today by international DJs looking for exotic beats.
The apparition of Spanish female duo Las Grecas with their gipsy-rock sound in the '70s created quite a boom in the Spanish market at the time and paved the way for other similar gipsy-rock duos. Morena Y Clara were one of them. Launched by bizarre flamenco producer Lauren Postigo, they released a string of 45s and three LPs for the Discophon label. They mixed rumba, flamenco, psychedelic rock, funk, and disco music featuring an amazing production (heavy drums, fuzz-wah-phaser electric guitars, Moog, Hammond) over the wild flamenco female vocals of the duo.
No Llores Mas features their psycho-tronic hits like "No Llores Más," "Dejé De Quererte," "Buscando Alegría" and more. Includes insert with liner notes by Txarly Brown (Achilifunk) and photos.
