“Entre Dos Aguas (Rumba)” A’ Side single released on Philips (60 29 261) in 1974

Entre dos aguas is an instrumental flamenco rumba created by the Spanish guitarist Paco de Lucía, included as the first single on the album Fuente y caudal 1973. It was recorded with two guitars (the second played by his brother Ramón de Algeciras), with a bass and a bongo, instead of the traditional palmas played on the rumbas.

At first the album did not have much commercial success, being practically discontinued in a few months. But Jesus Quintero, his representative at that time, and several other journalists were determined that this piece of music be heard on the radio. They convinced the record company to edit it as a single, going on sale in 1974.

As a single, Entre dos aguas sold more than 300,000 copies, being a gold single in 1976, and was 22 weeks at the top of the sales charts, catapulting the guitarist’s career.

After the success of the song as a single, the label reedited the album Fuente y caudal in 1975, it was released in cassette format in 1981 and in CD format in 1987. Likewise, the song was included in several compilations.

Since its inception, Entre dos aguas is considered a masterpiece of flamenco, being the most popular and well-known song of the artist, both nationally and internationally. However, it was not a song worked with time, but an improvisation that Paco had to perform at the time of recording the disc by order of José Torregrosa, the producer, considering that it was incomplete.

Apparently, Paco used other references to improvise the song, such as the song Te estoy amando locamente, by Las Grecas, and the song he co-written Caramba, carambita, by Los Marismeños, where in the latter can be seen more clearly the similarity.
