Live discs like this really make me proud of the musicianship and professionalism of argentine musicians like Luis Alberto Spinetta and his bands. Recorded live at the Auditorium of the Exact & Natural Sciences Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires on August 30th, 1990, according to the CD edition, or on September 30th, 1990 according to the vinyl edition. Anyway, according to the concert advertising poster, the date in the CD is the correct one. In addition to this difference between both editions, the CD contains an additional track, "El Marcapiel", that is missing from the LP edition.

For this concert Spinetta, voice and guitars, counted on with the participation of a supporting band formed by Marcelo Novati in drums; the great Javier Malosetti in bass; Guillermo Arrom in lead guitar; the fine and climatic keyboards, including acoustic piano and organ, of long time Spinetta's fellow Mono Fontana; and Claudio Cardone in additional keyboards. The concert has an intimate but powerful climate with the inclusion of a full-banded version of a Spinetta's very loved song, "Amor de Primavera", from Tanguito, a classic of the early so-called Argentinean Rock.

The songs were taken from different ages and formations of Spinetta's musical life but with the jazzy flavour he was having in that times.The album includes a new and refreshing almost reggae version of "Parvas" (from the disc Almendra II), two so far unedited songs: "Frazada de Cactus" and "Sicocisne", and an antologic version of "La Herida de París" (from the times of Spinetta Jade) with a brilliant bass solo by Javier Malosetti. Also includes renewed versions of two old songs, the almost tango-ed version of "Plegaria para un Niño Dormido" from the first Almendra's LP, the first ever recorded by Spinetta, and a short acoustic version of "La Cereza del Zar" from the well remembered LP Pescado 2 from the days of Pescado Rabioso. The sound is superb taken directly from the console; the public interaction is set to a minimum and does not superpose on the played parts of the songs.
