"Born Leopoldo Dante Tevez in a small town in Argentina in 1945, Leo Dan was a very successfull singer/songwriter, having composed over 2000 songs, many of them sung by music stars like Jose Jose and Palito Ortega. His melodies and lovely voice, which though not a powerful one falls softly on the ears, garnered him his own TV show in the '60s, and in the '70s, he moved to Mexico for a decade, expanding his audience and reputation as a songwriter.
This well produced DVD collection will delight Leo's many fans, and Leo wrote all the songs except for tracks 4 and 10. Leo in his youth will remind some of my fellow "boomers" a little of Bobby Vinton in his heyday, in voice, personality, and in the sweet and simple tunes they both sung that have for the most part innocent, puppy love themes.
The 1st 6 tracks are in b&w, and both the b&w and color tracks have quite good sound and visual quality, and do not show their age too much. The last 4 tracks are of a much matured and relaxed Leo; what he lost in hair and waistline he more than gained as a polished performer. He sings the final 3 songs with a mariachi band, and has fun with one of his biggest hits, "Esa Pared." This collection is nearly 40 minutes long. Track list:
1: "Como Te Extrano Mi Amor!"
4: "Nunca Me Impediras Amarte"
5: "Te He Prometido"
6: "Mary Es Mi Amor"
7: "Quien No Tiene Una Ilusion!"
9: "Pareces Una Nena"
10: "Solo Una Vez"
11: "Pideme La Luna"
12: "Esa Pared"
13: "Con Nadie Me Compares"
14: "Toquen Mariachis Canten""
