  1. Wow, I had no idea that Mercedes was famous around the world. She’s such a symbol for the Argentine people. I haven’t listened to much of her work, but I still feel sad about her parting.

  2. In 1993, leg in plaster, I travelled to London on the train with a couple of pals to see Mercedes in concert. By then it was five years after being introduced to her beautiful music in Central America by a Nica friend.
    I met wifey the following year and often played her Mercedes’ songs.
    I had hoped to see Mercedes in concert again-the concert was amazing, more a visceral experience than anything.

    In addition to Gracias a la Vida this one has always been a strong favourite:
