El Gusano

elG_live-profile11
El Gusano’s “Fantasia del Barrio” is the missing link between the Psychedelic sounds of Texas and the Chicano Soul and Funk of the late 1960′s and early 70′s. Recorded soon after Eugenio Jaimez returned from a tour of duty in Vietnam, “Fantasia del Barrio” is his musical meditation on life at war and the Chicano experience at home. Skillfully performed in one marathon recording session, Jaimez and El Gusano embraced the Soul, Funk and psychedelic sounds of their day to craft this lost instrumental concept album. Long sought-after by break hunters and psych collectors, Heavy Light Records is proud to bring Eugenio Jaimez, Jr’s masterpiece to light. Again, only 1000 copies were pressed. I have a couple left at the shop. Get ‘em while you can!

The Rega “Fat Bastard” Counterweight

IMG_4276

I have fully figured out the heavy counterweight issues and now have many great fixes. The good chaps at Rega UK received my whining email that their heavy weight was a lightweight. It’s like 2 grams heavier than the standard. My Dynavector and Zu carts are heavy beasts! So they kindly custom machined me the only 150 gram tungsten Rega counterweight in existence!! You can now special order them if needed for $295.
