Billy Bond Y La Pesada "Rock+Blues+Rocks+Rocks"{Argentina} [1972] (Blues, Blues Rock)

I promised some Billy earlier this week so here it comes. In 1972, Billy Bond y La Pesada released their second album, another excellent LP featuring Alejandro Medina on bass Pappo, Kubero Diaz Poli Martínez on guitar, Javier Martínez and Luis Gambolini on drums. Jorge Pinchevsky on violin and Billy Bond on vocals. Remarkable tracks are: "La pálidad ciudad" -by Kubero, with a great rocker guitar job and Pin's violin "La máquina" ("The damned killer machine!") -sung by Medina with Pappo on guitar. "Blues para mis amigos" -the lyrics describing the members of the band; and "Para que nos sirven" -a great rock number. All selections were segued with fragments of a so called "Vida y obra del negro Julio", actually a simple melody played by Pinchevsky and Pappo on violin and piano. All and all, this was a harder LP than the first one, as the text on the cover would read: rocks+blues+rocks+rocks= Billy Bond y La Pesada!

This LP also included the controversial blues version of "La marcha de San Lorenzo" -a patriotic military march- which was immediately banned (consider that few years later the Armed Forces took the government).

The march of San Lorenzo is a patriotic music in Argentina, but the enemy(Uk, english goverment) take the same melody in your music country too. Gracias por la musica. Cristian. Argentina.

Great crude raw blues! It makes me cringe a bit in places, but I love the honest effort.

Thank you - it's very much appreciated.

It is interesting to remark that B.B.& La Pesada Vol 1. was recorded in late 1970, and this, their 2nd LP, during 1971. Argentina had been under military rule since 1966, that's why "La marcha de San Lorenzo" was banned for airplay during 1972. A brief democratic period ensued between early 1973 and early 1976, before the armed forces usurped political power again, this time with tragic consequences for the Nation.
