He aquí una historia ejemplar encerrada en un disco tan encantador como ignorado. Un disco y un lugar, Deiá (Mallorca), aquel insólito microcosmos de la bohemia europea que parecía circular ajeno al resto del territorio español, y en unos años convulsos en que esos asombrosos parajes, transitados por personajes venidos de cualquier confín del mundo, iban a presenciar ...
