This group from Uruguay is best known for releasing the original version of ‘Sobre Un Vidrio Mojada’, which is better known in the version by Los Secretos (previously featured on this blog).
As Los Bulldogs they recorded two albums of covers (in English) for the Argentine market. For their third album in 1969 their singer Kano insisted that they become Kano Y Los Bulldogs. More importantly Kano (real name Roberto Alonso) started to write some excellent original material, including ‘La Llamada’.
LA LLAMADA Noche y día yo esperaba que alguien a mí corazón llamara, que mis días fríos fueran menos porque no podía vivir así. ESTRIBILLO: Ayer llamó, luego la vi, y ocurrió un milagro: fue para mí. Poco a poco fue ganando con su corazón de niña, todo mi ser, y hoy ya no podría destrozar todo su puro amor, el que vuelca en mí. ESTRIBILLO
THE CALL Night and day I waited For someone to call my heart That my cold days would be less Because I couldn't live that way. CHORUS: Yesterday she called, then I saw her, And a miracle happened: It was for me. Little by little it was getting better With her girl's heart, all of my being, And today you still couldn't destroy all her pure love, That makes me dizzy. CHORUS
