La Lupe y Su Alma Venezolana (Tico, 1966)

At times, La Lupe reminds me of a Cuban version of Elis Regina.  Both singers had giant, powerhouse voices.  But, more importantly, they both have an unmediated quality in their singing; it's as if they have no fear.  They put it all on the line -- and you can't help but respond to that.

Oh, I remember Prefab Sprout warmly from the 80s. But for me their favorites are their two first albums, Steve McQueen and From Langley Park to Memphis. I see they had a previous album called Swoon from 1984, but that must be a minority thing. And Steve McQueen very above the other.

Yes, that's very true. But I know more Regina and less La Lupe... And Regina was all those things you say.

Binged a bit on The Poor Man's Pink Floyd:

Nice work by AP for dipping that bucket in the well and milking the hell out of those PF motifs. It works pretty well for I Robot and to a lesser extent Pyramid. The latter having more of its own sound but seriously wimping out toward the end. Meanwhile, Eye In the Sky is borderline terrible. :tdown
