Mercedes is the Greatest!

"What can you say about a lady with such a powerful and yet delicate voice who can still keep it up after so many decades on the stage? And Mercedes Sosa is a native American i.e. "Indian", it's rare that someone from that background succeds as much as Mercedes has done.
And she's proud of it! One song on this album, "Cinco Siglos Igual" chronicles the destuction of the Americas in the 500 since Columbus, but does so in an elliptical, poetic, moving fashion.
This particular album is pure pleasure and fascination, never a dull song. She belts out the definitive rendition of "La Ultima Curda"(The Last Binge), and the orchestra really takes you along for the ride; the song compares the churning of a drunkard's innards to the churning of the mud on the bottom of the River Plate! So it's good that she also includes inspirational songs like "Dale Alegria a mi Corazon". She turns almost operatic in "Caruso", while "La Solitaria"'s frenetic passion will sweep you off your feet-as will "LLegadas y Despedidas", in which she compares the bustle of the world to a busy railway platform.
Honestly, she can sing in any style. A pity this disc isn't easily available; it ought to be a classic.
I also have or had an old cassette by her called "Amigos"; will that ever be re-released? or any of her other great stuff from the 1970's, like Mil Novecientos Navedades? Just wondering."

"He comprado este disco por esa canción, Luna, la había escuchado uno o dos veces y su estribillo es lo único que recordaba, lo canté solo una vez a mi hija de dos años y enseguida se le quedó dentro, no hay vez que no cante la canción a voz alta y con pasión cuando ve la luna. Lo recomiendo y no por eso, Mercedes Sosa tiene una voz particular, no se confunde con otra, es bella, te toca las fibras del alma, a veces me olvido de la letra de las canciones y me dejo solo llevar por su voz. Yo ya la conocía claro y ciegamente compro cualquier disco de ella, pero lo recomiendo a cualquier persona que busque una cantante latinoamericana."
