1. Across the Time
We are happy to present on 7-inch two of the most in-demand songs by Valencia´s cult band Modificación,
crafted in the early ‘70s under the influence of bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, Vanilla Fudge, Rare Earth, Led Zeppelin…
This single includes the legendary freakbeat number ‘Across the Time’, that has found its rightful place, over the years, as one of the most admired and sought-after Spanish singles from that period.
Following our recent release of their complete recordings ¬—including previously unpublished songs— we are now happy to present on 7-inch two of Modificación’s most in-demand songs.
The now legendary freakbeat number ‘Across the Time’ was crafted by the Valencia-based band during their recording sessions in Madrid at Audiofilm studios (1972) and has found its rightful place, over the years, as one of the most admired and sought-after singles of Spanish underground music.
‘Annelie’, on the flip, dates back from the early days of the group, when they recorded a single for EMI, “Llegará el día que me quieras” (1971), featuring Juan Bau on vocals (later to become a popular crooner in Spain). This B-side track shows Modificación’s interest in bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, Rare Earth… also adding a certain Latin-soul twist that rounds it up as a highly effective dancefloor artifact.
