The huge influence record sales, definitely, Sara Montiel that kept true to the genre of musical theater during the last fifteen years of acting career. The success of his first album, The last couplet, he took all by surprise. Sara had signed with the company posting the Columbia soundtrack, agreeing to pay as a percentage of sales (royalties). This was decided on the assumption that the disk would discreet welcome; but it ended up being a best seller, so that the singer felt a fortune.
Breaking with the tradition of high-pitched voices imposed by Raquel Meller and other performers of the genre, Sara sang with a more serious tessitura, similar to the de alto. His voice was not powerful, but well toned, velvety and very suggestive, a strong personality that made her instantly recognizable. Of the songs performed in the last couplet was highlighted “I hope smoking”, with Sara Montiel finished identified as, from adolescence, He practiced smoking, a habit frowned upon today, but then it was considered as stylish. Among his most memorable performances are also counted: “The reliquary”, “The Violetera”, “Black Tears”, “Kiss Me a lot”, “Perfidy”, “Valencia”, “Tattoo”, “Green eyes”, “The polichinela”… Many of these songs were classics decades ago that she updated with his unmistakable voice and an unusual sensuality in Spain.
