Cuentos de ayer y de hoy is the debut album by the Spanish hard and folk rock band Ñu released in October 1978. This album features a progressive rock style combining hard and folk rock. The flute predominance in the album's sound has been compared with Jethro Tull's style,[1] but playing a way heavier sound it is in fact a predecessor of folk metal. Regarded as one of the best Spanish progressive rock albums, it has been issued in SpainJapan and South Korea.
