·"19 Daís y 500 Noches" - Joaquín Sabina

Singer and songwriter Joaquín Sabina was born in Úbeda, Spain, in February 12, 1949. At the age of 14, Sabina started writing poems, getting connected with music as a member of a teenager's rockabilly band called The Merry Youngs. Sabina's poetry and music skills were extended to acting while being part of Juan Panadero's theatrical company. In 1976, his book Memorias del Exilio was published and its lyrics were Sabina's inspiration to record his first album in 1978. El Inventario was followed by Malas Compañias, the first one for CBS. While the artist's popularity as a songwriter was growing, Sabina's lyrics started being requested by well-known Hispanic singers. In 1985, Sabina left CBS, signing up to the Ariola label. Joaquín Sabina y Viceversa was recorded live during two successful shows performed at Salamanca Theater on February 14 and 15, 1986. The following studio record came in 1987. Hotel, Dulce Hotel sold over 400,000 copies. In 1992, Sabina went on tour, performing almost 200 shows around the world. In 1997, the artist was recognized as the Best Spanish Rock and Pop Songwriter by the Spanish Songwriters Association (SGAE). This LP, released in 1999, this is probably the best of his works. Astonishingly good despite his very very broken voice. However at this time in age, one does not listen to Sabina because of his superb singing abilities but because of his wit, irony, and cynical stance. Bucketloads of those in here. Highly recommended.
