Obviously folks here are at least familiar with many German psych/krautrock groups of the late 60s-early 70s and that's good.
But how many have explored the equally lysergic & fruitful scenes of South American late 60s- early 70s psych/prog? Brasil, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela - they produced tons of amazing, heady rock music that should be as well known here as this "first rank" of krautrock groups.
Anyone who loves early Can should hear the first Billy Bond y La Pesada LP from Argentina.
Anyone who loves acid-drenched Hendrixoid guitar wedded to a funky beat should hear Almendra, Pescado Rabioso, La Cofradia de la Flor Solar, Modulo 1000, Gal Costa '69, Gilberto Gil '69, Caetano Veloso '69, the first Invisible lp, Tobruk, Tarkus, Lula Cortes & Ze Rahmalo, Piel de Pueblo, Kubero Diaz y La Pesada, Claudio Gabis y La Pesada, Jorge Pinchevsky y La Pesada, etc.
