LOS BRINCOS - El Pasaporte (Novola - 1 sided promo) 1967
Spanish mods Los Brincos really deliver with this ultra cool freakbeat ripper. They didn't do much outside their native Spain but did manage to release a couple of 45s in England on the Page One label (home of The Troggs). The English version of 'Passport' can be found in pretty good sound on We Can Fly - Volume 3.
I'm sure the Spanish sung version has never been compiled before. Look out for my new CD series titled Circles, coming soon. Why? because 'El Pasaporte' will be on it.
Special note must also be made for the fabulous op-art promo sleeve that houses this magical 45. Designers take note. This is how cool a record or CD sleeve could be. I've already mentioned We Can Fly - Volume 3 CD on Past & Present. Take a look at the cover of that thing and you'll get what I mean. It's fucking shit and looks like something your Granny would design.
