History

The Fattoruso brothers had been in the United States for ten years, Opa had already disarmed, when a proposal arose to play in Buenos Aires as the opening act for Milton Nascimento and to record an album in the studio. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] Ruben Rada was in Argentina and had recently lived his experience with La Banda .

Producer Oscar López of Sazam Records asked them to record something like Los Shakers . [ 3 ] But the Fattoruso brothers demystified Los Shakers for having imitated music from another country for commercial purposes. [ 1 ] [ 4 ] However, love for The Beatles still intact: in the song "Goodbye for a while" is a tribute to the Beatles. And they also included a version of "Siempre tú", a song that was part of the third album by Los Shakers The Secret Conference at Toto's Bar .

Hugo Fattoruso named the group Otroshakers because they weren't the same Shakers, Roberto Capobianco and Carlos Vila were missing. [ 3 ]

Ruben Rada had performed with The Shakers in the beginning, but did not remain in the group because it was out of tune with the Beatle image . [ 5 ] And Ringo Thielmann was going to be the other guitarist for Los Shakers, besides Hugo , but he never went to rehearsals. [ 6 ]

"Brother Rada" is a new version of a song that the members of Opa had recorded in 1975, before the arrival of Rada. [ 7 ] But the original version was only released in 1996 on the Back Home CD . Another theme that stands out is "La marañaza", which opens the album. [ 2 ]

A Los Shakers is considered an Opa album, and has received rave reviews [ 2 ] - for Litto Nebbia it is one of the best albums of the decade-, [ 8 ] but it has never been released on CD or reissued. on vinyl. [1]
