Rómulo Caicedo – Merengue Sabroso
Victoria

Rómulo caicedo, voorkant

Romulo Caicedo’s muziek was me al jaren geleden opgevallen
toen ik hem de eerste keer hoorde. Het duurde een tijdje voor
ik de eerste plaat van hem in mijn handen had maar nu is het
toch zover. Zijn tamelijk hoge stem intrigeert en z’n sound is
overwegend vrolijk. Een zonnige ontmoeting dus die vraagt
om een vervolg. Eens zien hoe lang het duurt voor ik de
tweede tegenkom. Luister naar Romulo’s
Merengue Sabroso..

Romulo Caicedo’s music came to me years ago and pleased me
instantly. It took a while before the first encounter with a fysical
album but now it’s there. His quite high voice intrigues and his
sound is mainly happy. A sunny meeting all together that asks
for a follow up. Let’s see how long it takes for us to find the
second elpee. Listen to Romulo’s Merengue Sabroso..

Los Corraleros – Nuevo Tumbao
Discos Fuentes

Corraleros, voorkant

Cheto, Zato y pepe

Om te beginnen, het spijt me zo voor degenen die slechts één
soort muziek kunnen waarderen. Variatie is alles in het leven
en verandering is wat ons op gang houdt, het is onvermijdelijk.

To start with, I’m so sorry for those who fancy one kind of music
only, for variety is the spice of life and change is everything
to keep us alive. It is inevitable.

Ik heb deze band altijd zeer serieus genomen, zoveel geweldige
artiesten speelden erin. Lisandro meza, Calixto Ochoa, Tony Zuñiga,
Eliseo Herrera, César Castro om er maar een paar te noemen. En dan
komt er zo’n nummer langs met Donald Duck stemmetjes, da’s even
schakelen maar toch, tja, de rest is gewoon weer fantastisch. Het blijft
een wereldband dus zullen we ze die grap maar vergeven. Luister zelf
maar, los Corraleros de majagual kunnen toch niet stuk..

I always took this band very serious, so many great artists played in it.
Lisandro meza, Calixto Ochoa, Tony Zuñiga, Eliseo Herrera, César Castro,
just to name a few. And then they appear with such a strange song with
Donald Duck voices in it. That was a moment of doubt, but then, what to
say, the rest of the album is just as fantastic as before so I guess we’ll
excuse them for making a joke. They remain a group of world class.
Listen yourself, los Corraleros de majagual are still marvelous..

Dolcey Gutierrez y su Conjunto Callejero
El Perro Cantante y Otros Exitos
Tropical LPT-1018

Dolcey Gutierrez, front

Write his name in our search-bar and find the one album
by his hand we already had. Today’s lp is one in various styles,
from cumbia to cumbión, guaracha, pasaje and such. It bursts
of percussional beats on pots and pans, no just joking but the
tambó is very hot on this album and one song is happier than
the other. I can’t seem to get enough of this sound, how
’bout you ? If anyone should know a year of release,
please do not hesitate and leave us a message.
Meantime give it a spin and enjoy..

Que Siga el Baile – Various Artists

Que Siga el Baile, front

Good morning groovers, I wasn’t able to see downloadnumbers exactly
as they are since the new page has come active. My engineers have
made it possible now and I must say it brought me some pleasant
surprises. For example, I did not expect Ases del Ritmo in our top 10,
same thing counts for Global Sampler vol. 43. It is on number 14, not
bad at all. The numbers give me an awesome insight on what’s most
popular here at the GG. I always figured that the albums that gained
the most comments were also the most downloaded ones but that
isn’t the case at all. This information is very valuable to me, it
helps me determine what to post.So lovers of Colombian music,
I am happy to see so many downloads in this section.
Enjoy this fine collector which contains
a number of great songs.

tracks;

1 Policarpo Calle – Solo fui el varon
2 Marciano Torres – La visita
3 Policarpo Calle – El tutumbao
4 Diego Espinoza – Que siga el baile

Los Millonarios – 19 Exitos Bailables ! ,vol. 4, Discos Fuentes

Los Millonarios, front, cd size

Here’s a post, especially interesting for it’s collector’s value, more then
for it’s musical value. ‘Los Millonarios’ played instrumental versions of
well known songs. For instance, ‘No me busques’ of ‘Los Corraleros
de Majagual’, or ‘El carretera’ of ‘Guillermo Portabales’. It gives an
impression of all the styles played in Colombian music. And as always,
‘Discos Fuentes’ brings a cover with a pretty girl. Check back cover
for style info. Attention : Track no. 1 jumps one time !
