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..

22 Tracks about Football – Various Artists

22 tracks about footbal

Speaking of football, or soccer, whatever you prefer, I decided
to make a collector about it. It begins with a track from a cd
full of 78’s collected by John Peel’s wife. Nice old song, in the
middle we have two African songs, one Colombian and another
oldie with the Marx Brothers. On no.13 we have a track sung by
no one less than Pelé, with Sergio Mendes and on 20 a quite bad
Dutch caranaval song by our own Johan Cruyff, you wont believe
your ears. Most songs are Brazillian and about the famous Rio-club
Flamengo or Pelé, get it & spread it…

Angel Vasquez y su Conjunto – La Gustadera, Discos Fuentes

Angel Vasquez, front

Today’s contribution concerns a recent discovery. I heard
this lp and fel in love with it straight away. The combination
of acordeon, the strong rhythms, it’s roughness is just so
sweet. Angel Vasquez’s raw voice captured me instantly.
It may sound silly but I also love the image of the frontsleeve,
the simplicity of a yellow background with picture and text,
plain, simple and uncomplicated, big letters, it’s goood.
All together, a happy post,
get it & spread it..

Eddie Palmieri y su Conjunto ‘la Perfecta’El Molestoso, Alegre Records 1963

Eddie Palmieri, front

This is the second lp by latin pianist Eddie Palmieri and his group
‘La Perfecta’. They were the originators of a sound called ‘trombanga’,
introducing two trombones and a flute instead of trumpets. This contributed
a lot to their early sixties succes in the New York latin scene. Later it was
also used by artists such as Willie Colon and Manny Oquendo among others.
The vocals on this 1963 album are taken care of by Ismael Quintana. Enjoy..

Johnny Pacheco – 10 GreatYears, Fania 1973

Another great Johnny Pacheco LP, from 1973 on Fania.
This copy has been played almost too often, unfortunately it has
a little hiss and track # 7 starts with a crack and a jump, but still
I didn’t want to withhold this beautiful album from you. ’10 Great
Years’, from ’63 to ’73, Johnny Pacheco comes in with a nice
selection of hits from between those years. Singers are, like on
many of Pacheco’s albums, ‘Pete ‘El Conde’ Rodriguez’, and
Chivirico Davila. I quote the backcover;
” For the past 10 years, Johnny Pacheco has been one of the biggest
influences in Latin Music.
A favorite with both the Latino and the
American dancing public since his rise to national fame with the
Pachanga, Johnny keeps you moving and swinging with his
‘tipico’ rhythms. In this collectors album, you will be able
to sample some of the hit tunes which have delighted
people over the past 10 years.”

El Gran Pacheco – Cañonazo,Fania 1972

Until now we saw two great latinlabels at Global Groove.
the Colombian label, “discos Fuentes’ and New York label ‘SAR’.
It’s about time to post some latin of the great ‘Fania’, a New
York label that started early 70’s, correct me if I’m wrong.
One of Fania’s biggest stars through the years is without any
doubt, ‘Johnny Pacheco’. I quote the backcover of this LP;
Sound, rhythm, and change…..three words that seem to go
well with Johnny Pacheco. The sound was Charanga, the
rhythm was Pachanga,and the change was welcomed by
dancers around the world; but this is a restless world of
innovations, and the most restless of all is JOHNNY !
Change the sound, change the rhythm, charge the air with
musical energy……the flute become drums, the violins
become trumpets, blend in voices, and the metamorphosis
is complete. Fania Records is proud to launch this new
sound which is being presented to you,
the listener, by Johnny Pacheco.
