LA CASA AZUL have achieved so many different goals and convinced so many fans around the globe that an album like this makes more sense than ever.

This is the re-release of their first album plus 3 demos and other extra tracks - with a renewed, better sound (mastered by Xavier Alarcón) and a luxuriant new artwork, with illustrations by Jean Duprez and cover art by Cocoe (www.cocoe.com).

Let's talk about history: in 1999, sunshine-pop producer Guille Milkyway found in the 5 members of LA CASA AZUL the perfect vehicle for his sunny melodies, which melted the spirit of the A&M label in the 60's with 70's disco and 90's europop.

But when LA CASA AZUL came under the spotlight "it wasn't the right moment for Bubblegum, Ye-Ye, Europop, Sunshine Pop, André Popp nor Roger Nichols..They'd sing 'Me gustas' ('I like you') and it meant 'Me gustas', as if the songs had just come out from the Brill Building". In other words - maybe the scene wasn't ready to hear the influence of HARPER'S BIZARRE, THE COWSILLS or the golden years of A&M, but when they sang "Me gustas" it meant "Me gustas", and the songs connected immediately with the people.

This record features, as well as the 8 song in that debut mini-album, the 3 first demos that started it all. We have also included cover versions of MECANO and Jeanette, plus 'Tantas cosas que arreglar' (from our 2003 compilation 'Momentos perdidos') and the new version of 'Chicle cosmos' recorded in 2004 to be included in the soundtrack to 'El Asombroso Mundo de Borjamari y Pocholo', a comedy featuring Spanish comedians Santiago Segura and Willy Toledo.
