Jimmy Pedrozo con Franklin Ariza vol. 2
Paso la Vida Pensando, Discos Tropical 1985

Jimmy Pedrozo, front

In 1986 Globestyle released the album ‘Fiesta Vallenata’, part of
the series ‘Accordions that shook the world’. it contains a few
songs that captured me from the very start. Lo mas sabroso
by Jimmy Pedrozo & Franklin Ariza struck me like lightning.
I had never heard such music before and it was more or less
the beginning of my search for more. The lp is available here.

Other songs that hit me instantly were the other two Jimmy
pedrozo songs and ‘India Matea’ by Miguel Duran. I’m still on
the look out to find the album containing that song. Yesterday
my buddy Sanjay payed me a visit and a big surprise came
along with him. After 30 years finally I found volume 2 of Jimmy
Pedrozo & Franklin Ariza. In fact, Sanjay is the man that helped
me searching and he found it in Bogota. What a special moment
when listening to it first time. The song ‘Lo mas sabroso’ must be
on volume 1 so the search continues but for now we are so lucky
to be able to listen to “Paso la vida pensando” by Jimmy Pedrozo
con Franklin Ariza y su Conjunto, hope U like..

Anibal Velásquez y su Conjunto
El Ritmo y el Sabor,
Discomoda de Colombia 1978

Anibal Velasquez, front

Anibal Velasquez produced a huge pile of records. My
collection contains a bunch but there’s so much more
yet to discover. Today we have an album from 1978 on
which he appears multiple style, paseo, paseaíto,
cumbia, Ritmo cundé, charanga and pasebol.
Anibal still performs, it seems I missed him
when he was touring my country some
time ago. Who knows we’ll get
another chance.
Listen..

Lucho Campillo y su Combo Los Marinos
Más Éxitos de Lucho Campillo,
Sonolux

Lucho Campillo, front

Lucho Campillo is the man behind this group called
Combo Los Marinos. Singers are Juan de la Cruz Piña,
Diochy, Jairo Mercado, Policarpo Calle and off course
Lucho Campillo himself. If any one can tell us from
what year this album comes, please do. I think Lucho’s
songs have something different somehow, they sound
fresh, original and delicious. Forget about the girl on
the sleeve and focus on the music, let’s listen
and maybe do a little dancing too..

Los Ases del Ritmo – Costa Brava vol.1

Ases del Ritmo, front

Goodmorning groovers, I have another appointment with one
of our contributors today, Sanjay is the man that brings us
these killer Colombian lp’s. Costa Brava vol.1 is such an
album. ( nothing to do with the Spanish costa brava ) It
contains songs by three great musicians to my opinion.
Anibal Velasquez is the most famous of the three but
Aniceto Molina and José Velasquez are not to be under-
estimated as well. There’s one cumbia track and futher we
find paseo, pase-goajiro, paseito, pasebol, rumba, guaracha
and merengue-joropo, all happy Colombian styles.
Very enjoyable stuff you’d better not miss..

tracks;

1 Anibal Velasques – Caruya’
2 Anibal Velasquez – Mi destino
3 Aniceto Molina – El bailarin
4 José Velasquez – Juanita
5 Aniceto Molina – Mayo
6 Anibal Velasquez – Yolanda
7 José Velasquez – Caracol
8 Anibal Velasquez – Beso pagado
9 Aniceto Molina – Maria elisa
10 Anibal Velasquez – Dejala que sufra
11 Anibal Velasquez – En brazos de otro
12 Aniceto Molina – Nos vamos

Plutarco Urrutia y su Conjunto – La Manguita Carnaval 1979

Plutarco Urrutia, front

I just knew one song by this artist, it came from a Discos Fuentes
collector and is called ‘Esperando a Patricia’. You might have found
it on my Colompilation vol.5. The lp we have here today was found
for us in Cartagena by my friend Sanjay who brought us loads of
wonderful albums already, it came home with him recently.
It is one of the rarest lp’s at the GG and I’m proud to
bring to you today. So, do not hesitate if you like
Colombian music, get it & spread it..
