The band La Unión appeared in 1982 in Madrid. It was formed by the singer Rafa Sanchez, guitarist Mario Martinez, and bassist Luis Bolin. The producers of the group were Nacho Kano and Rafael Abitbol.
The band conquered the big stage with their classic song “Man-Wolf In Paris”, based on two novels by Boris Vian. They presented it in 1984 in Madrid with the music video. It sold more than 200,000 copies, being the number one in sales for three months and getting a gold certification.
On the wave of success, they released the first LP Mil Siluetas, which contained great stories full of mystery and fantasy. The following year, they recorded the LP El maldito viento. It included some of the best hits of the band such as “Between Rare Flowers” and “Tall and Leafy”.
In the third LP 4×4, La Unión collected all their best songs of that period. They enriched their music with new rhythms and electro-acoustic mixes. Soon La Unión embarked on their first American tour.
