    El Valle Interior is more than fine, if only for the beautiful epic Miguelito, mi espiritu ha partido a tiempo. The atmosphere is quite melancholic, almost bleak. I don't see the connection with the old version of Almendra, I would just consider it another late 70's/80's Spinetta project, more digestible but still arty.

    ^ That's probably true. I listened to El Valle and Diamante (recorded almost simultaneously) back-to-back this last Friday, and what struck me was the vast difference between the respective focus of the two. Spinetta Jade were very much dedicated to the concept of ultra-refined instrumental prowess, whereas the reformed Almendra were a fully "song-form" based enterprise foreshadowing the mainman's solo endeavours throughout the 80s and on. His whole spirit is very present in both, of course, and indeed he sought a merger of the two approaches already by the time of the second Spinetta Jade album, Los Ninos Que Escriben en el Cielo, on which he pretty much takes his leave from the "progressive" field altogether. He would uphold a significant sense of sophistication in much of his songwriting, but not in terms of a conscious genre antic.

    I have these 2:

    - Spinetta: Anhelo de una lírica - Una exploración temática - (2017) -
    "The lyrical density of Spinetta for his songbook has made him to be considered “The poet” of the Rock. Is he the poet of Rock? These pages pierce that idea boldly.
    The book provides a framework for reflection, analysis and understanding for those who have enjoyed this intensity, or for those who question it, are about to be introduced or discovered.
    His exhibition exemplifies the interconnection of his songbook revealing itself as an organic whole.
    An adventure of thought about the letters that bequeathed us the original author.
    Essential meditative testimony about his unshakeable longing for a letter."



    And, my little treasure/gem:

    - Guitarra Negra -
    "In the work of Spinetta, viewed chronologically, we find that between the sublime "A 18 'del sol" and the misunderstood "Only love can sustain" curiously is not a studio album, but our Flaco gave us one of those "notebooks and notebooks full of poems" written by him ... Guitarra Negra, published in 1978, a rarity completely, is the first and only book that would publish in life."

    ^ Thank you very much for all this. I will try to get my hands on the text of the book. I don't know any Spanish, but with some translator and my French/Italian knowledge I can create a credible understanding of Spanish poetry. And yes, of course he was a poet, and a major one from what I gather out of the few tunes I have listened to with lyrics.

    "Guitarra Negra" is OOP but you can find it as a second hand for example.


    "Guitarra Negra is a surrealist poetry book by Argentine rock musician Luis Alberto Spinetta published in 1978. It is the only book published by Spinetta, although the album Pescado 2, released in 1973 by his band Pescado Rabioso, contained a 52-page booklet with drawings , poetry and reflections, mostly written by Spinetta. It has been reissued several times.
    Luis Alberto Spinetta was characterized by a musical work intimately related to poetry. With strong influences of surrealism, many of his musical works and albums are inspired by the work of great poets, as with Rimbaud in the case of Pescado 2.
    The book was originally edited by Ediciones Tres Tiempos which had to close in 1984. In 1995, another independent publisher resumed the task of republishing it, making five editions since then and until 2012.
    Spinetta has said about the book that: "Certain internal violence shot up at me when writing those texts.""



    Viajero Inmóvil has some books about Spinetta and other related themes of interest, don't know if OOP but listed at their site, for example:

    Enjoy!.
