Vox Dei comments
It´s a waste that one of the bests bands in the argentinian history is in this position but I imagine it´s beacouse that the people in the first world barely know what Argentina is.
For the interested people I will let you some information I´ve recopilated by myself here in Argentina:
First of all, this group was founded at the ends of the 60´s decade and (with Javier Martinez, Manal´s leader) were the only ones that have enough knowledge about music in the southern Buenos Aires´s "conourbano" (The cities around de capital between it and La Plata, providence´s capital)so they had a lot of influence in towns like Quilmes, Berazategui and Avellaneda. The members of Vox Dei (God´s Voice in latin), Ricardo Soule in guitar and voices, Rubén Basoalto in drums, Wilfredo Quiroga in bass and "Yodi" Godoy in ritmic guitar (The last one left the band after the La Biblia según Vox Dei recording). They travelled to Buenos Aires every free weekend that they could and showed their song to the producers but, in general the people with decent records were interested in pop music like "Palito" Ortega and El Club del Clan, so until Vox Dei were found by Luis Alberto Spinetta (A legendary argentinian musician) they played in small and bohemian bars, and a courious data is that they singed in english until Spinetta said them "You have a full lenguage here, why do you waste it like that?" and they change a hundred percent their letters, Spinetta sent the Vox Deis to speak with Jorge Alvarez (The most great producer of non-popular literature and music in Argentina) and he made the arrengements to record their first album: Caliente (Hot), this one contains a classic of argentinian music in general: Presente, and two well-known songs: Total Que and Canción Para Una Mujer (Que No Está). At the following year (1971) they recorded La Biblia Según Vox Dei , the album that consacrated them in the rock´s ambient, this one is a conceptual disc (Like Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Rick Wakeman and The Wall, Pink Floyd, even there is a typical argentinian proud myth that says that Roger Waters stole the idea of a conceptual album to Vox Dei but there is no proofs) The complete idea of the album was to retreat the most important book in history in music and it has beatiful tracks like Génesis, Las Guerras and Profecías that are full of magic and strenght. After that Vox Dei only recorded two more classical albums: Es Una Nube, No Hay Duda (There is a Cloud, with no doubts, an album with great songs like the one wich gives the title, El Faisán y La Codorniz and La Verdadera Historia de Sam el Montañés) and Jeremías Pies de Plomo (Jeremy Lead Foots, the one who bring the classic Ritmo y Blues con Armónica). La Nave Infernal it´s a recording of some concerts around the country, Cuero Caliente it´s a redition of Caliente with a few more songs, about the rest there aren´t too much special things to say.
In conclusion, Vox Dei made history and even in 2014 I go to some concerts that the musicians made and I can enjoy the same or more than my father enjoyed them in 1970´s, it exists a prejudice that this band it´s too primitive and in part it´s true, I won´t lie but above all this men were developed to their age and with all the problems that we had in Argentina in that decade they did manage excellent so give to Vox Dei more than one oportunity, a fan´s advice.
PD: Thank you for reading so extensive text and I apologise for my mistakes in your lenguage that I probably made (I only had fifteen years old I haven´t mastered it yet and if anyone wants more information o had any doubt I am opened to questions per private message here or by facebook: Franz Rufus Noback Gate Silverfake (Not my real name).
