1 - GATOS, LOS - BEAT NO. 1 - (LP) 
MELOPEA


Beat N1 is the fourth studio album by the Argentine group Los Gatos, released in 1969 by the RCA Vik label. For this album the band of Litto Nebbia incorporates a young guitarist, still practically unknown> Pappo, who would print a more bluesy and rocky flavor to the group, especially in the following album, Rock of the lost woman of 1970. A fluid eclecticism plays throughout the album> the beat of the beginnings, beatlesque and melodic rock, psych and the edgy blues, partly because of the incorporation of Pappo, that results in a more determined hard rock. Adding to this the inspirational journey from Nebbia to New York, the new songs denote an evident evolutionary change that goes through the speed mod of "Home", the density blues creeping in "Escchame, almbrame" and the very psychedelic "Out of the law". The Moro/Toth base is full/bodied and comfortable between Cyrus and Pappo< The voice of Litto is sounds much harder and mature. There is an interesting exploration of the stereo possibilities (the battery completely thrown for the left channel, for example). The album closes with the extensive "Out of Law", theme that foreshadows the change of style of Los Gatos, who began to abandon beat music and psychedelic pop, to delve into more robust and complex sonorities.

2 - GATOS, LOS - EN VIVO! - (LP) 
MELOPEA


"En Vivo y En Estudio" consists of material recorded between 1970 and 1971 that remained unpublished until 1987. As its name indicates it is composed of one side recorded in studio, without the intervention of Pappo, with Toth on guitar and Nebbia on bass . Side 2 of the original edition contained songs recorded live on December 4, 1970 at the Teatro Oden in Buenos Aires. At the beginning of 1969 Los Gatos separate momentarily. For nine months, all members of the band, with the exception of Nebbia, traveled around the United States, getting to know the local music, listening to the "greats of the moment" and even recording a simple with an American singer, unpublished. In the interim, Nebbia began his solo career, filming the movie "The Strange Long Haired" and releasing his first solo LP. Los Gatos would return to the following year with "Beat N-1", with Pappo in the place of Kay. This album clearly shows the two styles> the melodic of Litto (in "Dream and run") and the rocker that imposed Pappo ("Home"). "Rotten Woman Rock" was the title for the next LP, but due to censorship issues it would be changed to "Lost Woman-s Rock" (1970). This, the last, will be the most rock album and, for many, the best. In the middle of 1970 Pappo already left the grouping to form its own band. Nebbia will play bass and Toth will take the place of the distant guitarist. "We are making another sound to the whole" they anticipated. Nevertheless the luck was already cast> a simple of low repercussion and a series of recitals signed the definitive goodbye to this key group of the national music. From that moment on, Litto Nebbia would continue his solo career.

3 - GATOS, LOS - ROCK DE LA MUJER PERDIDA - (LP) 
MELOPEA


"Rock of the lost woman" is the fifth and last studio album by the Argentine group Los Gatos, released in 1970 by the RCA Vik record label. After a first estrangement from the band, the rest of the group, except Litto Nebbia, traveled to the United States in search of new musical influences in 1969. This brought enough changes in the band, the group will leave aside the beat rock to transform Its sound in something much more bluesy and harder rocknroll. The songs "Rock of the lost woman" and "Woman of coal", among others, prove it. This LP with the passage of the years would be considered the best of Los Gatos and one of the best of Argentine national rock. Originally the album was going to be titled Rock of the rotten woman, but by problems of the censorship had to change it. According to Nebbia himself "the record company seemed very aggressive and I changed the title. At that moment I thought it was fine, that the essence was the same". Litto continues, "On the cover we wanted a woman who responded to the bohemian character referred to in the lyrics of the song ... and we found this girl who was working in a boutique in the East Gallery, on Santa Fe Avenue" . The first photograph that saw Ciro Fogliatta and Bony for the cover was of a bank of images, in which the model, according to the keyboardist "She was three times as fat and dressed in spectacular black lingerie. We could not get the rights, but we set out to maintain that spirit. It-s a very crazy cover, because that story was going around that claimed that the mine of the photo was me, dressed as a woman. A lot of people, if you told them it was me, you threw their morale down. That is very Argentinean".

4 - GATOS, LOS - VIENTO DILE A LA LLUVIA - (LP) 
MELOPEA


Los Gatos, also known as Los Gatos (vol 2) or Viento dile a la lluvia, is the second studio album by the Argentine band of the same name, published in 1968 by RCA Vik. Although known as "Vol 2" or "Wind Tell the Rain", the album, like the previous one, had no title And precisely "Viento dile a la lluvia" was the big hit. This LP came as the successor to the debut, which included "La balsa", and did not have the impact of that one, although it served to consolidate the name of Los Gatos in the nascent scene of Argentine rock.
