Notes


Tu Bien Lo Sabes Héctor Lavoe The impeccable interpretation of Lavoe in this splendid compilation produced originally by Victor Gallo reveals itself in the previously unreleased track, found inside a closet at the offices of Fania Records,called “Tú Bien lo Sabes,” the song that lends its title to this collection of boleros and romantic songs, and also the tune that was the trial by fire for Héctor. It was late in the evening of that Wednesday, May 13 of 1981, when the sound engineer Irv Greenbaum recorded “Tú Bien Lo Sabes” at New York’s La Tierra Sound studios, under the musical direction of José Febles and Louie Ramírez. The arrangement was by Luis ‘Perico’ Ortiz, who had previously orchestrated, in 1978, the composition “Comedia”, an orchestral bolero with strings written by José Angel Espinosa. “Tú Bien Lo Sabes” established itself through the very particular needs and visions that Héctor Lavoe had at the time. People believed that it was Willie Colón, but in effect, it was Héctor who truly wanted to record an orchestral bolero. A similar effort had been realized on the Comedia album, produced by Willie. This time, it was Héctor’s big opportunity to produce the cut himself. As Luis ‘Perico’ Ortiz remembers: “It was very shocking. Until that day, Héctor Lavoe would only be present at the studio when it was time to record his voice. “Tú Bien lo Sabes” was the exception to that routine. Héctor arrived at midnight, and spent a very personal moment, alone, close to the restrooms down the hallway. I went to call him: “Come and listen to your baby”. He came quickly and sat down on the studio floor, listened to what we had done, and started to cry.” “When I saw him like that, I imagined that someone must have told him that he didn’t have the talent to produce a record, that he should remain under the shadow of Willie Colón and all those things... It was a moment of awareness and understanding, and he realized right there that he could be a producer.” “Listening to this song today, 27 years later, I can picture myself there again”, he concludes. “I see myself with him, I see him crying and, at the same time, becoming a producer. I see him weeping with joy because he had done it, and I get a very special feeling in my heart. He was such a great artist, but he wasn’t aware of his own greatness. To me, this is like going back to that time and reviving the recording of the out tapes, since everything I did was tailor made for Héctor. This compilation also includes “Sombras Nada Más”, which could easily stands as the singer’s own epitaph, particularly during the section that he sings: I could be happy, and yet I'm dying Living in tears The most horrifying moment Of this endless drama Also “Soñando Despierto”, a déjà vu song that occupies an unusual place in his repertoire. In an excerpt of the lyrics, Lavoe sings: Last night I dreamed that my mother-in-law had died And I started crying when I woke up and realized it wasn't true She's a bad weed, wouldn't die even if she was run over by a cement truck Right after the song had been released, Héctor found out that his mother-in-law had been brutally murdered in Puerto Rico. It was a tremendous shock, and he never performed it again. Lavoe performed in the greatest stages of the world, delighting his audience with these masterful recordings. He was a magnificent singer, he had an impeccable voice and performance, but he never truly knew of his greatness as an artist and of the love that his fans felt for him.
