Joaquin Sabina — "the Spanish Bob Dylan"

I say, “Yes!” but if you haven’t yet heard Joaquin Sabina, you’ll have to judge for yourself whether or not he deserves “the Spanish Bob Dylan” accolade. Once you’ve sampled the incredible range of his music it is even harder to understand how Sabina has gone unnoticed for so many years — and not just in the U.S., but also in much of Latin America.

The site link below leads to well written, thoughtful commentary (Spanish) on Sabina’s amazing career, and a very good lyrics selection. Forget the gimmick and cookie-laden lyrics sites… use this one instead.
