|It was in 1974 when I first
heard this song "when I saw you standing there..." was playing from a
passing car in a crownded city street of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I was
hooked and said to my self that was a very beautifull song. Even though
that was the only clause of words I heard from the intire song.
....The war and the killing field came. We -the nation as a whole - lost
conection with the world and civilization. I did not have a chance to
find out who sung that song, where he was from, and his name......The
killing field went on for 3 years. I suvived.
In 1986 my family was acepted to come to live in America. Before I came
to the united states , it was in a refugee transit camp where I learned
that LOBO was the man who sing the "song"....
And then new lives in a whole new world.
Took us a while to adjust and understand things around here. The first
thing I wanted to do was to go out there buy the LOBO record.
Went to a local record store and asked for LOBO music. The guy did not
know who I was talking. I though it was perhaps my accent that make it
hard for others to understand, but the guy reconfirmed " do you want Los
lobo" I said yes.
I wound up with an unwanted record when I came back to my apartment
anxiously played the record on my old record player donated by a local
LOBO, you are a greatest artist. Your music, liric, especially your
voice are from heaven. May God bless you, your family, your voice and
all of your fans around the world.
