Cristian Castro
1992

Story

In 1992 this was a huge hit for a young Mexican artist Cristian Castro. To this day it is one of his most played songs and it is still used in TV and commercials all over South America. Many different artists have covered this song over the years but this is the Cristian's version. I wrote the music and the venerable Alejandro Zepeda wrote the lyrics.

Story

A bit of ancient history...This is the first commercially recorded version of what would later on become huge international hit called No Podras. Hollis Gentry's band Neon recorded it in San Diego, California and released the CD in 1987 with Hollis on tenor sax, Kiko Cibrian on guitar, I played the bass, Randy Porter on keyboards and Johnny Castaneda on drums. I called this intrumental version Just Another Pretty Face. I wrote the music in 1977 in a tiny apartment in the Winterhude section of Hamburg, Germany where I lived for a while after leaving or more accurately defecting from communist Czechoslovakia just a year before that.
