Chronology of Study Albums by Charly García
Cheap Philosophy and Rubber Shoes is the sixth solo studio album by Argentine musician Charly García . All the songs were recorded in June 1990, with the exception of "I Feel Much Better", which was finished in January of the same year. The album was produced by Garcia and Joe Blaney.
The disc contained a controversial version of the Argentine National Anthem , for which García had to circumvent a trial for "offense to national symbols." [ 1 ] Finally, the version ended up being authorized by the courts.
It is considered by a sector of the critics as the last great album by García before his Say no More stage [ citation needed ] , with which he would attract a new audience but alienate several of his more veteran fans.
Disc context and recording
The history of the content of the disc goes back to the year 1977, which had been quite difficult for Charly. At the age of 26, he had separated from his wife, María Rosa Yorio , with whom they had Migue , who was only a year and a half. The Bird Making Machine no longer satisfied him as it had originally been, and added to his personal problems, he decided to go somewhere. He arrived in Búzios ( Brazil ), with what he was wearing, a guitar and the company of the Russian David Lebón . There they began to shape what a year later would be Serú Giránand to compose some of the songs that would make up the band's first album. In Búzios Charly fell in love with a waitress, Marisa '' Zoca '' Pederneiras, a 21-year-old dance student, and they began a relationship that would mark a large part of Charly's career. The depressive contents of "Losing Route" or "Marilyn, Cinderella and the Women" had disappeared from his lyrics. For years, Charly and Zoca were inseparable, until in 1989, a few weeks after the Launch of How to Get Girls and without warning, she left never to return. [ 2 ]
The album was entirely composed after Zoca's departure. True to his style, García exposed his entire personal situation in an album. Cheap Philosophy and Rubber Shoes is perhaps one of the most personal works of Charly's career and it is entirely dedicated to his personal situation at the time. Less than a year later, Charly was admitted for the first time. [ 2 ]
The choruses for the song "Cheap Philosophy and Rubber Shoes" were performed by Lolita Torres , who does a set of vocal overlays towards the end of the song.
