Alfonso Piña y Los Superiores – Bailables con Piña
Metropoli L.D.M. 5069

Je kent ongetwijfeld de het gezegde, je moet het ijzer smeden
als het heet is. In het geval van de platenverzamelaar, koop de
plaat als de gelegenheid zich voordoet en je de middelen hebt.
Zo heb ik veel platen gekocht na ze snel te beluisteren en soms
belanden ze al in de kast zonder ooit echt goed gehoord te heb-
ben. Het leuke is dat je jaren later een album ontdekt in je eigen
collectie. Dit is er zo een. Ik kan over Alfonso Piña niet zoveel vin-
den op het web. Één ding weet ik wel, dit is Tropical de Colombia
van hoge kwaliteit. Bailables con Piña swingt van begin tot eind ..

In Dutch we have this saying, you must forge the iron when it is
hot. It means as much as take the opportunity when it occurs.
I don’t know the proper English way to express this feeling. In
case of the record collector, buy the record when it appears.
This is how it happens that you buy an album after a quick listen
and sometimes it ends up on the shelf without really hearing it.
The fun thing about it is that after years you may discover an
elpee in your own collection you don’t know. This is such a
record. I can’t seem to find much about Alfonso Piña but
one thing I do know. This is Tropical de Colombia of decent
quality. Bailables con Piña rocks from beginning to end ..

Lo Mejor de La Sonora del Caribe
Delujo 1962 ?

La Sonora del Caribe, front

Not long ago we had an lp by Alfredo Gutierrez on which
Lucho Argain ( Lucho Perez ) was performing. Another group
that Lucho used to sing and compose for is this one. La Sonora
del Caribe was founded in 1951 by Chavistad Cesar Pompeyo.
They had a string of records through the sixties and seventies,
the one we have here is probably from 1962 and contains 12
songs of which the brothers Cesar and Alfredo Pompeyo
said; “We never sounded like this before, the songs on
this lp can set any of our fans on fire on any moment
of the day..” Well, let’s see what happens,
get it & spread it as usual..

Mas Cumbias...Mas Gaitas, front

There was a time I would never have believed an album with
such a cheap sleeve, naked girl and all, could be a good one.
Nowadays I know better. Au contraire, after collecting this
type of music some years I started loving them. The record
we have here is just what we like to find, thick carton sleeve,
heavy vinyl inside and luckily in good shape. It is from 1976
and contains a load of brilliant tracks, these cumbias are
sweet without exeption, just the way we love them, well
produced and compiled with passion. Get & Spread..

Huracan Bailable – Various Artists,
Discos Fuentes

I just got back from a two day recordsearch and came home
with a pile of music from Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, Haiti, Jamaica,
Mali, Guinée, Cabo Verde, Tchad, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Cuba,
Brazil and Colombia. Wow, now I look at it myself, not a bad score.
The journey back took me almost seven hours today while in fact
it’s a 5 hour trip. Some big accident along the way. Tomorrow I’ll
tell you more, for now start listening to this happy music.
Discos Fuentes brings this collector with all kind of cumbia-like
tropical dance music, fantastic stuff you don’t want to miss.
An oldie but goodie so to say, do you know where I went ?
Demain Franck, demain plus.
