Shlomo Artzi is an Israeli folk rock singer-songwriter. In the course of his career, he has sold over 1.5 million albums, making him one of Israel’s most successful male singers.I n 1975 he was selected to represent Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest. At Va’Ani didn’t win the contest, and the album was a big disappointment. This marked the beginning of the worst era of Artzi’s career. During the next several years, Artzi released several records that failed to sell well, and produced very few hit singles. In 1977, almost ready to give up on his singing career, Artzi wished to record one last album “the way a record should be made”, and was allowed to do so by the record company. He recorded “A Man Gets Lost“, a sort of last good-bye to the business. Nevertheless, the album was a big success and revived Artzi’s career, which from this moment on would rise, and keep rising, to unprecedented heights in the Israeli music industry.
