Jesus Figeuroa - Con Todos / Magica Fuente CD. Figueroa was the lead singer of Uruguay psych band Opus Alfa, which evolved into Dias de Blues (without him). It was an amicable split, however, and the members of Dias de Blues performed on the first album. Both of the ultra-rare blues influenced psych albums (1973/1974) from Figueroa are on this disc: Con Todos has great atmospheric acoustic slide-guitar blues alternating with thudding heavy rocking blues tracks; Con Todos is good, but Magica Fuente is much more compelling and shows real imagination, with some weird effects and more of a drug vibe; sinuous guitar slow burn blues combined with guitar-propelled rave-ups; there is harp on one track, perhaps foretelling Figueroas subsequent search for enlightenment from eastern gurus.
