This album titled “4to LP” by León Gieco.
But, Who is this singer? First, is Argentine and his the country-rock style. Somewhere I read that is the “Bob Dylan of South America”. If I could make a comparison would be with Neil Young (Band’s instrumentation, guitar, harmonica, etc).
What I like about Gieco? His voice, completely outside to the model of most Argentine groups and soloists, as Luis A. Spinetta and Charly García, model to follow.
This LP, in my opinion, is the highlight of the Gieco’s discography. I bought it for the song “Solo le pido a Dios (I only ask to God)” and a part taken from a recital in which appears the beautiful ballad “Canción de amor para Francisca”.
Trivia and history about the beautiful and heartbreaking song “Solo le pido a Dios”. This song that made his jump Gieco’s fame. I remember this song became famous after war by Malvinas islands between Argentina and the UK (Unfortunately this territorial issue is far from over). The fact that this LP was released in 1979, hence the song “Solo le pido a Dios” was not composed because of that devastating war. At that time (The war of the Malvinas islands) when this song was most popular, Gieco was invited to sing his song on the Chilean TV and in a radio interview they was asked what he wanted to say of this song, he replied something like “That song was composed by the war that was looming with Chile.” Yes, that was a terrible reality that we live in 1978: The war between Chile and Argentina was imminent. Gieco’s prayer came true, then, the Papal mediation made some sense into both countries, thank to God!
