After Almendra broke up, three extremely important groups emerged: Pescado Rabioso, Aquelarre and Color Humano.

Color Humano was a power trio influenced by Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, as well as groups like Groundhogs or May Blitz. The name was, of course , taken from the song penned by Molinari for the first Almendra LP.

Besides the extraordinary guitar of Edelmiro (leader and author of almost all their repertoire), the first line-up included Rinaldo Rafanelli on bass and the versatile David Lebón on... drums!

The first LP begins with a nice melody sung by Gabriela (Edelmiro's wife) backed up by acoustic guitar and vocals. This song could have been included in her solo album as well. Some more energetic stuff follows ("Silbame oh cabeza" –featuring ex-Almendra Rodolfo García on drums– and "Introducción polenta") together with quieter ones (the instrumental "El hachazo", the long "Larga vida al sol" and "Humberto"). All themes are lead by the ever-present guitar.

Soon after the album's release, David Lebón left to join Pescado Rabioso and was replaced by Oscar Moro (ex-Los Gatos and Huinca). The band was much more solid with the addition of Moro.
