 Pharaway Sounds present a reissue of Pepe Sanchez Y Su Rock Band's Regresión, originally released in 1976. Pepe Sánchez is a real legend when talking about drumming in Spain.  Not forgetting his incursions in progressive rock with Araxes or doing session work for seminal Spanish albums like Gipsy Rock (1974) by Las Grecas among others. Pepe and his group of friends (Manuel GasJuan Carlos CalderónPepe ÉbanoTito DuarteJuan Cano) were the most requested Spanish session musicians of the time, appearing in countless recordings. In the mid-70s, he was approached by the Marfer label: the idea was to create an instrumental album based on Flamenco music and Spanish folklore but with a modern approach, adding electric guitars, electric bass, drums. Pepe recruited some of his friends, all of them top session musicians with a jazz/pop background, and the result was Regresión, his first solo album. It's an incredible fusion of jazz, funk, rock, flamenco and psychedelic/progressive sounds highlighted by the powerful drumming of Pepe, the wicked fuzz-wah guitar of Carlos Villa (Vainica Doble, Las Grecas), the sax and flute of jazz giant Pedro Iturralde and Manolo Morales (Jayme MarquesBebu Silvetti), the piano of Eddy Guerin (Tete Montoliu, Santisteban, Jayme Marques, Manuel Gas), the trumpet of Juan Cano (Vlady Bass, Juan Carlos Calderón) and José Luis Medrano (DoloresMárquez), the percussion of Pepe Ébano (Elkin & Nelson, Manuel Gas). Includes the monster rare groove /funk track "Sentimiento". Regresión is a Spanish jazz-funk/prog-psych holy grail featuring the crème de la crème of Spain's session musicians of the time. Original artwork in gatefold sleeve. Master tape sound. Liner notes by Spanish jazz/funk expert Javi Bayo. Includes two bonus tracks taken from his rare "cosmic disco" non-LP 45 from 1980. Featured in the 7001 Record Collector Dream book by Hans Pokora.
