Description

Los York’s became the epitome of Peruvian garage sound. Abrázame features a beat-influenced go-go twang guitar garage psych tone throughout and the unique voice of the iconic frontman of the band resulting an irresistible Latin garage hipshaker! Set the dance floor on fire with this first time 45 reissue of the Latin garage anthem “Abrázame.” The group was in tune with the youth from popular districts who were gradually turning morning concerts into dynamic gigs as the fashion for solo rock-ballads waned and garage sounds by bands like Los Shain‘s, Los Derbys, Los Juniors, Los Flyers and, of course, Los York’s took over. Their supportive fans would follow them to every gig. After releasing their three first singles on MAG, featuring covers of popular hits, it took them a year to turn their ideas into songs for their first LP that was successfully released at Christmas in 1967. The original version of “Abrázame” was included in this album and also released as a single. Although clearly based on Don Covay & The Goodtimers‘ R&B classic “Mercy Mercy,” the recording features a beat influenced go-go twang guitar garage psych tone throughout and the unique voice of the iconic frontman of the band, Pablo Luna. A rawer, fuzzier version of the same song was released one year later and renamed as “Abrázame Baby.”
