Recorded in 1974 in Argentina, but shelved until 1979 and released in Spain by progressive label Movieplay/Gong while Los Jaivas were touring in Europe. You can read the whole history (in Spanish) here:

Seems there is also a very obscure Chilean release in LP, but it's impossible to find info about it.

Musically, it's very similar to early albums by Los Jaivas ("El volantin" y "La ventana"), mixing very sucessfully Andean folk with progressive and experimentation.
