Lucy Villa - Lo Importante es Sentir

In the late 60's early 70's when my family made their slow migration from Peru to Los Angeles, one of my first memories of music (outside of all the Huaynitos playing off the Lps they brought from home) was a well known sunday night show called Siempre en Domingo hosted by Raul Velasco. I remember watching it on our black and white tv set and later on the wood panel framed color tv, rabbit ears up as high as possible with our eyes and ears glued to the musical performances. As I remember it the host was always a class act, very smooth and intelligent as he spoke between numbers. Its interesting that I remember him more than the acts... but today is a different story.

Lucy Villa, without a doubt, would have been a definite hit on the show and would have fit perfectly into the flavor of Siempre en Domingo. So without further adieu, as Raul Velasco would have said it " Aun hay mas! Querido publico y los televidentes de hoy en dia, les presento una artista estelar con mucho exito desde el lindo pais de Peru, Lucy Villa con su tema, Lo Importante es Sentir...

(Late night edit) Wow, i guess its not as unique as I thought...but it still holds up, you be the judge. The original version (???) is by Italy's Mina Mazzini and can be seen below.
