Artist: Pablo Beltrán Ruiz
LP: 7" single
[ listen ]
Born in Los Mochis, México in 1915, Pablo Beltrán Ruiz will probably be best remembered for writing the song "¿Quién Será?"—which, after being translated into English as "Sway," became a hit for Dean Martin. Julie London also does a nice version of the song. This 4-track Pablo Beltrán Ruiz 7" EP was made in Japan, obviously, and the Japanese liner notes are included below. Translation, anyone? It's neat to see what "Andalucia" looks like when written in Japanese. You can read about Pablo in Spanish here, in English here, and find a list of the movies and TV shows his song "Sway" has been featured in on IMDB here.
