A 18 'del Sol is the third solo album and 10th in which the Argentine musician Luis Alberto Spinetta has a decisive participation. It was released in 1977 by CBS .

Details

This album marked Spinetta's tenth record participation, either alone or with one of his bands. Despite its limited diffusion, it is one of the most sophisticated and high- quality works by "Flaco", being his closest album to jazz fusion , where the impeccable execution and virtuosity of Luis and his musicians stand out. The atmosphere of the album, somewhat removed from rock , is delicate and smooth. [ 1 ]

Spinetta's poetic style is clearly expressed on this album, whose lyrics, lacking any allusion to the reality of the time, are timeless and profound. A 18 'del Sol , is a varied album, with instrumental themes, such as Telgopor , and A 18' del Sol and an acoustic theme ( Song for the days of life ).

The name of the album (18 'from the Sun) is due to the attempt to reflect the distance between the earth and the sun (measured in light speed ). There was an inadvertent mistake and ten minutes "left over", but it was decided to leave the title as it was originally set anyway. [ 2 ]
