Buddy Richard, La mer

Buddy Richard is associated with Nueva ola, rather than Nueva canción. So that already puts him behind Victor Jara, the Parras, Patricio Manns, Inti-Illimani, Quilapayún and other Chileans in the queue for my hypothetical 'last lifeboat'. But he'd be one of the poppy bunch that get on board soon after la Incomparable. “La mer” is one of the greatest ever Chansons. So there's not much need to justify that choice. With one exception, the 1973 list selects artists that I'm always playing, and will list again, very soon. It's Italian Thursday. There's not much to more to say about that particular selection.
