Album Review

In 2003, 2004, and 2005, Universal Latino assembled quite a few best-of collections for its Éxitos Eternos (Eternal Hits) series, and the artists ranged from salseros like Tito Puente, Tito Nieves, and Celia Cruz to regional Mexican/grupero stars los Yonic's. This Éxitos Eternos collection, which Universal Latino released in November 2005, takes a look at the long and impressive career of Mercedes Sosa — the expressive Argentine vocalist who can take much of the credit for the rise of Latin America's nueva cancion movement back in the '60s. There is no way that a single 56-minute CD can adequately or sufficiently tell Sosa's story; her list of musical accomplishments is too long. But while Éxitos Eternos doesn't pretend to be the last word on Sosa's legacy, it wouldn't be a bad starting point for novices. Many of her more essential recordings are offered, including "Años," "Razón de Vivir," "Todo Cambia," "Yo Vengo a Ofrecer Mi Corazón," and "La Maza" — in other words, many of the songs that are considering required listening in an Introductory Mercedes Sosa 101 situation. Éxitos Eternos could have been more generous; as much five-star material as Universal Latino had to choose from, they could have easily provided another 20 minutes of music. But everything on this disc is excellent — there is no filler at all — and for novices, Éxitos Eternos can offer a rewarding, if brief, introduction to Sosa's legacy.

The driving force behind the nueva canción movement, singer Mercedes Sosa was born and raised in Tucumán, Argentina, beginning her performing career at age 15 after taking top honors in a radio station amateur competition. A rich, expressive vocalist and a gifted interpreter, Sosa was dubbed "the voice of the silent majority" for her choice of overtly political material, and alongside artists including Violeta Parra and Atahualpa Yupanqui, she spearheaded the rise of the so-called "nueva canción"...
