el Autentico y Puro Vallenato con
Cesar Castro y su Conjunto
Impacto 1975

Cesar Castro, voorkant

Als je van onvervalste vallenato houdt is het werk van Cesar Castro
niet te missen. De plaat heet ‘de authentieke en pure vallenato’ en
dat is dan ook wat je hier krijgt. Drie van deze nummers stonden
ook al op de enige andere lp van zijn hand die hier in augustus van
het vorige jaar verscheen, de rest is nieuw op de GG. Stevig spul
met Cesar’s krachtige stem, niet te versmaden dus..

If you are into vallenato it is wise not to miss out on the works of
Cesar Castro. This record is called ‘the authentic and pure vallenato’
and that is exactly what you get here. Three of these tracks were on
the one other album by his hand we had at the GG in august last year,
the rest appears here first time. Decent material with Cesar’s
powerful voice, get it now..

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..

Alonso Pedrozo – Lo Mejor del Pollo Cantor
Fabuloso LPF 2186

Alonso Pedrozo, voorkant

Goeiemorgen, dit plaatje ligt al een paar maanden op de wip
van wel of niet. Telkens werd hij ingehaald door een andere
schijf vinyl maar vandaag is het toch echt z’n beurt. Alleen de
hoes is het posten al waard vind ik. Alonso ziet er zo hip uit in
die prachtige broek van ‘m en mooie meiden maken de prent
in Colombiaanse traditie altijd af. Waar het om gaat is vanzelf
de heerlijke vallenato waarvan er weer twaalf opstaan. Ik word
er keer op keer weer blij van, hopelijk jij ook.
Luister en oordeel zelf, lekker spul hoor..

This little slice of vallenato was on the edge of being digitised
for months, today it finally found it’s new destination. The
world wide web to go short. Don’t you think Alonso looks
super hip ? On Fabuloso and from an unknown year of
release but with pretty girl this is the kind of record
that keeps me in a happy mood for days. I wonder,
does anybody over there in the US like it ?

Dolcey Gutierrez y su Conjunto Callejero

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..

it will stir up your summer party guaranteed. It does mine I tell

Do not wait and get it straight away..
