Charly García album timeline
Part of Religion is the fourth solo studio album by Argentine musician Charly García . It was produced by Garcia with Joe Blaney and was released in 1987 by the record companies Columbia and Sony Music. It is considered by specialized critics as one of the most prolific and compact discs in the musician's career, from the cover to the content of the lyrics. [ citation needed ] In this album they generate songs that are more recognized and listened to by Charly García , such as Rezo por vos and Looking for a symbol of peace . Other of his featured singles are Rap de las ants ,I don't go by train and The Snack Route (the latter is the song that completes the album).
At the live performances of Parte de la Religión , which had begun in July 1987, the band accompanying García was new, consisting of Carlos García "El Negro" López on guitar, Fernando Lupano on bass, Fernando Samalea ( who participated in the recording of the album) on drums, Fabián "Zorrito" Von Quintiero on keyboards, Alfi Martins on keyboards and Fabiana Cantilo (who also participated in the recording of the album) on backing vocals.

Background and recording
In Part of Religion , Charly García plays almost all the instruments, except the drums. In "Rap de las ants" he is accompanied by the Brazilian band Os Paralamas do Sucesso (on drums, bass and guitar) and in "Looking for a symbol of peace", David Lebón performs an electric guitar solo.
The song "The karma of living in the south" is dedicated to Migue , Charly's son, who in those years had moved in with him. Garcia, who had not lived with him since he was a baby, was rediscovering him and enjoying him very much. [ citation required ]
In the mid -eighties there was the possibility that Charly García and Luis Alberto Spinetta could edit a duo album. They got together, composed and recorded some things. One of the greatest curiosities of the album, could be heard the day that Charly took the demo of the album to Rock & Pop radio , in which the songs, still without lyrics, sounded as they are known today. which was a sample of García's way of composing, since in the demo - the first sketch of the piece - he was already clear about how he wanted the final song to be.

Charly García always opened the recitals of the Parte de la Religión tour with the theme "I need your love." [ citation required ]
