When Spanish vocalist Nino Bravo died in an automobile accident on April 16, 1973, the world lost one of its greatest romantic balladeers. Bravo had been attracting acclaim since 1959 when he sang with the youthful pop group Aielo de Malferit. He continued his success as a member of early-'60s trio Los Hispanicos, and after serving a brief stint in the military, with the group Uamado Superson. Launching his solo career in 1968, Bravo signed a five year recording contract with Fonogram. His first single, "Como Todos" b/w "Es el Viento," composed by Manuel Alejandro, was a major hit in Spain. Bravo reached his apex in 1972. Shortly after marrying vocalist Maria Amparo, he represented Spain with a crowd-pleasing set at the Festival de Rio de Janeiro. ~ Craig Harris
