Comment:


Joaqufn Sabina was born in Ubeda, Spain on February, 12 1949. He has earned his spot among the godfathers of Ibero-American rock. What I most respect of artists such as Sabina is that the music they were creating was truly subversive in the face of real oppression. More than McCarthyistic blacklists, they risked imprisonment and death, whether in Franco's Spain (like Sabina) or under the dictatorships of Chile, Brazil and Argentina (Victor Jara, Gilberto Gil & Caetano Veloso, Ch@rly Garcfa respectively). Obviously, Jara did not survive, but it is a testament to the other's strength of will or Sir Robinesque cunning, that they are still making great music today.
Sabina's solution was to live in exile in London. In 1975, he happened to perform at the same bar where George Harrison was celebrating his birthday. Leg*nd has it that George gave him a 5 pound tip for his performance. When Franco died that year, Sabina wandered back to Madrid. He eventually recorded 14 studio albums and a few live albums. Another side note is that when he wrote "En Su Bikini" to the tune of "Man Gave Names to All the Animals" in 1980, Mr. Zimmerman's lawyers came down hard on him and that song has yet to see the light of day. I am hoping to uncover it on some Sabina bootleg in one of my Mexican tianguis culturales. In any case, it did not diminish Sabin's admiration for Bob and he even wrote an extensive article in celebration of Dylan's 1984 European tour (source of the Real Live album for those Dylan freaks out there).


Sabina deals with themes similar to Dylan -perception, sincerity, his own mortality, the battle with the muse, patriotism, and of course love and sex (two songs about whores, one about premature ejaculation and another about Almodovar's cheezy women/trannies). Sabina is definitely more self-referential and self-deprecating than say Dylan, perhaps closer to Waits in that respect. I have tried to represent these themes as well as possible in these 16 tracks from his obras completas.

Thanks again for another chapter in World Music! He even looks like a combination of Dylan and Waits in this photo.

Songs about trannies, premature ejaculation and whores. And I thought this was a respect*ble site :)
He sounds fascinating, certainly got the Gainsbourg pose going on in that picture.
