Morgan Blanco – Cumbias Gigantes
OCM, Mexico DM 199

Morgan Blanco, front

Good morning groovers, what have we got cooking today ?
This lp by Morgan Blanco is a Mexican release. When
listening closely, you hear the fade-outs are done a little
sloppy, it seems OCM label raked together a bunch of
Morgan Blanco’s cumbias on this lp. It does not appear
to be a career album. The cumbias presented however
are of Colombian quality, renditions of songs written by
Ovidio Martinez, Rosendo Martinez, Rafael Mejia,
Nicolás Ortiz, Carlos Román and Morgan
Blanco himself. Worth at least
a couple of spins..
Enjoy.

Los Rivereños con Yomo Toro y su Conjunto -“Cuando Mexico Canta”,Seeco

Los Rivereños, front, cd size

Some Mexican music for a change. I’m always looking out for
the ranchera stuff with lots of ayayayay. This LP by Los Rivereños
starts quite good although it doesn’t reach the level of Miguel Aceves
Mejia or José Alfredo Jimenez. Still, on a quiet summer evening with
some moonlight and your loved ones…ay ay ay ay…

Trio Tariacuri vol. 1, Columbia

About a year ago I found a bunch of Mecican 10″es on the Utrecht
bi-annual recordfair. The next one is in november and I’m already
waiting for it. Trio Tariacuri is a group I didn’t know before,
they play mariachi like we used to hear it in them old Mexican movies.
I particularly like this little album for it’s atmosphere, ooooy ooooy.

Miguel Aceves Mejia – Canta mi Tierra, RCA Victor 1953

Miguel Aceves Mejia, front

This cover is so beautiful, I could impossibly resist posting
one more Miguel Aceves Mejia. This one has two of the tracks
the previous one has aswell. ‘Serenata Huasteca’, which was damaged
is here oncemore in a complete version, and ‘El Jinete’.
Plenty of cracks and pops but still sweet.

tracks;

1 Ruega por nosotros
2 Siete leguas
3 El jinete
4 Que me toquen las golondrinas
5 Gorrioncito pecho amarillo
6 Vaya con dios

Miguel Aceves Mejia – canta canciones de José Alfredo Jimenez, RCA Victor

Good evening, it’s been a couple of days, I don’t remember
exactly how many. The largest hiatus untill today, anyway.
Duty called upon me and priority’s had to be taken.

Today, I felt like doing another Mexican 10″, one of the
9 EP’s I found on that recordfair in Utrecht, last November.
I am thrilled by Miguel’s sound, how he cries them ‘Ayayay’s’,
is just smashing. I’m a new fan. Unfortunately, the quality
of this old disc is not so well and I had to fade-intro track 5
because it got stuck. Although there’s a short piece missing in
the beginning now, it’s still worth spinning.
Cry out loud with ‘Miguel Aceves Mejia’, Ay Ay Ay !

tracks;

1 El jinete
2 Ella
3 Virgencita de Zapopan
4 Guitarras de media noche
5 Serenata Huasteca
6 Cuatro caminos
7 Tu recuerdo y yo
8 Camino de Guanajuato

Miguel Aceves Mejía – Cantares de Mexico, RCA Victor

Miguel Aceves Mejia, front

On this Christmas night I’ve got something special.
I recently found a few 10″ EP’s on RCA Victor from several Mexican
artists. Among them was this fine oldie, I think it must be from
the 50’s. On the web I found just little about Miguel. What I did
find was that Youtube has two films of tracks on this EP.
The first track, “Ella” is here
And track 3 is here.
I wish the world a fine night with this sweet piece of Mariachi.
One thing, it’s got some snaps, crackles and pops.
Look and listen to Miguel Aceves Mejía.

tracks;

1 Ella
2 Cuando el destino
3 Entre copa y copa
4 Por un amor
5 Orgullosa y bonita
6 Tu, solo tu
7 La que sea
8 El rebelde
