Description
Daniel Viglietti wrote on the jacket of his first recording that he grew up listening to all the songs of Antonio Tormo played on his uncle’s record player. That has been true for almost three generations of South Americans who know by heart most of Tormo’s songs. Actually, most of the songs that Antonio Tormo sings are not his, but perhaps his way of singing them, maybe the careful selection of this recorded repertoire, has made people indentify the songs with him. Many other songs were not known before Tormo recorded them and almost all of them became "hits" in his interpretation.

En la contraportada de su primer disco, Daniel Viglietti escribió que toda su niñez la vivió escuchando las canciones de Antonio Tormo en el tornamesa de su tío. Esa experiencia ha sido cierta para por lo menos tres generaciones de suramericanos que conocen de memoria muchas de las canciones de Tormo. De hecho, muchas de estas canciones no son de su autoría, pero quizás la manera de interpretarlas, o la cuidadosa selección de su repertorio, han hecho que la gente identifique las canciones con él. Muchas de las canciones no era conocidas antes de que Tormo las grabara, y casi todas ellas se convirtieron en "hits" en su versión.
