4 stars Other reviewers said almost everything about this album and its history, I can't add much. No doubt it is very good and essential LOS JAIVAS album, all band's trademarks are here, though this work takes several spins to get into.

If 'Alturas de Macchu Picchu' instantly grabs your attention and doesn't release it till the end of the last song, this album is slightly uneven and less accessible. Personally I found some tracks ('El Guillatún', 'Y Arriba Quemando el Sol' and 'El Gavilán') too long and repetative. I also feel that 'Obras De Violeta Parra' is darker than most of LOS JAIVAS albums. If you speak Spanish (unfortunately I don't and can judge only by some translations) you can appreciate the quality of Violeta Parra's poetry.

Highly recommended, but if you are new to LOS JAIVAS, better start with 'Alturas de Macchu Picchu' (CD or, even better, DVD) or 'Los Jaivas' (1975).
