Rafael Escote in 1989's starry Aldebaran
Moving further into the eighties always can occasion regret. Of course, after the epic Catalonia, we could not expect perfection here, or even quality. There is much less advanced progressive composition than earlier-- after all, this is more than a decade after the second Gotic record. A general idea of the music can be had by the acoustic piano and bass solo track called Balada D'en Lluís:
Of interest is that the second part of side b comprises a 15-minute long composition called Baixos Per A Un Ballet (Suite), with of course several parts. This was somewhat disappointing to me on account of the overrepresentation (admittedly, not a surprise) of the bass.
