Release Date:04/01/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing including four-panel insert with lyrics in Spanish and English, photos, and info on Pippo. A record that sounds like a summertime sunset, if ever there was one. Lilting melodies, infused with an undercurrent of bossa nova and the drowsy, faded memory of sun-drenched islands. All of this melodic loveliness is made ever-so-groovy in an Afro-Cuban sort of way thanks to a mighty contribution from world famous percussionist Jorge Trasante, Totem drummer Roberto Galletti, and Limonada drummer José Luis Sosa. Pippo Spera came into the orbit of Uruguayan iconoclast Eduardo Mateo back during the days of El Kinto (one of that band's finest songs is about a visit by Mateo to Pippo's house). From 1967 to 1970, Pippo concentrated on studying classical guitar at the Conservatorio Nacional of Uruguay, until the military dictatorship closed the school. So, Pippo started his songwriter career, which culminated in 1975/1976 with the recording of A Buen Puerto. After the release of this LP, Pippo decided to leave a Uruguay oppressed by a brutal dictatorship. He sailed to Brazil in a ship much like the one hovering behind him on the A Buen Puerto album.;Track List:1. A Buen Puerto;2. Fragmento de la Suite de Pescadores - Mejor Me Voy;3. Déjalo Libre;4.
