"La Tierra del Olvido" would mark a further step in Vives’ desire to fusion rock,
In 1993, backed by the band “La Provincia”, Vives released the album “Clásicos de la Provincia” in which he started fusing Vallenato with rock,
Aigues Vives was founded in 1971 in Germany. The band was first influenced by the English progressive rock scene. After some changes they turned to folk instead. Late 1980-early 1981 they recorded their first album called “Water of Seasons”. The tracks of the LP have a fine Folk-Rock sound, with English vocals, and bit of improvisation with violin or flute to the guitars, which provide mood flavours. The dreaminess of the improvisations only provide a fine and enjoyable somewhat progressive folk sensibility to the songs. Their sole album was rare enough and until the excellent label Garden Of Delight gave it a recent reissue, AV was certainly a hidden gem of the 80's. And as a blessing, GOD also delivers some bonus tracks from their second never finished album.
