Los Corraleros de Majagual – “Síguela, Síguela”
Discos Fuentes 1967 (1977)

click on it

That ‘Los Corraleros de Majagual’ album of yesterday alone
was already downloaded hundreds of times. I guess it is time
to catch up with some of their older records. I’ve got a bunch
of them waiting, let’s see ..
This one is from 1967 and contains some of their greatest
songs ever. A few of them have appeared here on earlier
occasions but we also find songs that we didn’t have yet.
Tropical de Colombia like Paseaíto, Pompo, Pasaje,
Charanga, Son and Bolero, enjoy listening ..

In 1977 the album was re-released. On this re-issue two
songs were replaced. ‘Hay que gozar’ and ‘Mejor que te vayas’
were replaced by ‘Sarita’ and ‘La minifalda’. I have added Sarita
as bonustrack. ( see other picture, also in the file)

With Eliseo Herrera, Lisandro Mesa, Julio Erazo,
Calixto Ochoa, César Castro & Tony Zuñiga ..

From the band, in which so many famous Colombian artists
started their career, we find this 1965 album. With singers
Eliseo Herrera, Calixto Ochoa and César Castro. Being 55 yrs.
of age it sounds a little dusty. It is a historic record though,
one that every collector of Colombian music should posess.

Ik zag een film waarin de begin tune van deze plaat voorkwam.
Direct de kast in gedoken om hem te rippen, wat een heerlijke
soulplaat. Ik kon niet onderdrukken hem met jullie te delen.
Down, deel en luister ernaar met veel plezier ..

I just saw a movie in which the opening song of this album passed

Biyolo le Grand dans Salubrité
Editions des Beaux-Arts
D.B.A. 0100-85, F.P. 77040

click on it

De plaat van vandaag is een tikkeltje obscuur. Over Biyolo le Grand
kan ik niets vinden. Wel vinden we dat saxofonist Paul Mayitezo
ooit iets met Les Bantous des capitale heeft gedaan en ook bij
Verckys. Met percussionist Vicka Petelo vinden we een filmpje
op Youtube. Mix is gedaan door Martin Bakala die tevens op
albums met Mayaula Mayoni, Rochereau en Docteur Nico
heeft gewerkt, opgenomen bij I.A.D. Ook opgenomen bij
studio I.A.D. in Brazzaville is dit een aardig maar enigszins
mysterieus album.

Today’s record is a bit obscure. About Biyolo le Grand I can’t seem
to find anything. What I did find was that Saxophone player Paul
Mayitezo worked with Les Bantous de la Capitale and also with
Verckys. On Youtube we find something with percussionist Vicka
Petelo and engineer Martin Bakala from studio I.A.D. also worked
on albums with Mayaula Mayoni, Rochereau and Docteur Nico.
Also recorded at studio I.A.D. this a nice but
somewhat mysterious record ..

l’Orchestre Stukas de Lita Bembo
Benson Record BEN 004, 1983

This album by l’Orchestre Stukas of Lita Bembo was shared
with us by Nick Beddow. A record we didn’t see so far from
1983. Every elpee with Stukas is pure pleasure to listen to.
Thank you very much for sharing Nick, we’ll pass it on to the
rest of the world. I’d say, get it, spread it and listen ..

P.S. This is a file type different from what we’re used to have.
Downloading can take a little longer, if it works ..

Bestman Doupere & his Coastal Pioneer
Dance Band of Nigeria
Felix Record FRLP 16

Some more Nigerian highlife today with Bestman Doupere
and his Coasta Pioneer Dance Band of Nigeria. A mouthful
of name. Just two songs, one per side. It is mellow and easy
going, so easy they forgot a letter ‘l’ in the sleeve name.
One way or the other, solid listening with Bestman Doupere ..

Les Vikings d’Haïti – An Allé Ti Fi
Mini Records / Sonovox 1973

We saw them on a few earlier occasions, this group of
topnotch musicians called Les Vikings d’Haïti. This 1973

but very enjoyable. Composers Fritzner Delmont, Levy
Paul, Wilner Felix and Weiner Destin made these 10
great tracks on Mini Records in sweet atmosphere ..

Gertrudis Bonilla – Yo Soy El Currulao
El Son Del Pueblo, Juajui Records 0685

Gertrudis Bonilla is here once more with this album of which we
don’t know a year of release. The main style performed is Currulao
but it also contains Son, Guaracha, Folklore and Parranda. Finally we
find some marimba, this will please our blogfriend Alexsam. Sound-
quality could have been better, get and spread anyhow ..

I’ve added a video which contains some fake footage,
you hear trumpet and see clarinet, anyway, nice to see
Gertrudis Bonilla perform ..

Gertrudis Bonilla is hier nogmaals met deze plaat waarvan we helaas
geen jaartal van uitgifte vinden. We horen voornamelijk Currulao maar
ook Son, Guaracha, Folklore en Parranda. Eindelijk eens een paar nummers
met marimba, dit zal blog vriend Alexsam een plezier doen. De geluids kwa-
liteit had beter gekund. Down, deel, luister en beoordeel zelf ..

Ik heb een video toegevoegd waarin enkele fake beelden,
je hoort trompet maar ziet clarinet, toch leuk om Gertrudis
Bonilla te zien zingen ..

Kio Jimenez y su Orquesta – Tempo Dominicano
Discos Vicar VLP-030

Let’s have us some merengue tipico with the great Orquesta
of Kio Jimenez. Not very much information is to be found on
the world wide web. We’ll have to settle for the music and
what the sleeve tells us. The album we have here is probably
from the eighties if I was to guess. If one of you knows
more about the topic, please share .. For now,
get it , spread it and listen ..

Laten we nog eens wat merengue tipico luisteren vandaag.
Dit is Kio Jimenez en zijn Orquesta. Er valt niet bar veel over
hem te vinden op het web. We zullen het moeten doen met
de muziek en wat de hoes ons vertelt. Als ik gok zeg ik dat dit
een album uit de jaren tachtig is. Als een van jullie het weet,
deel het dan s.v.p. Voor nu, down, deel en
luister naar Kio Jimenez ..
