Los Corraleros de Majagual – “Síguela, Síguela”
Discos Fuentes 1967 (1977)

click on it

That ‘Los Corraleros de Majagual’ album of yesterday alone
was already downloaded hundreds of times. I guess it is time
to catch up with some of their older records. I’ve got a bunch
of them waiting, let’s see ..
This one is from 1967 and contains some of their greatest
songs ever. A few of them have appeared here on earlier
occasions but we also find songs that we didn’t have yet.
Tropical de Colombia like Paseaíto, Pompo, Pasaje,
Charanga, Son and Bolero, enjoy listening ..

In 1977 the album was re-released. On this re-issue two
songs were replaced. ‘Hay que gozar’ and ‘Mejor que te vayas’
were replaced by ‘Sarita’ and ‘La minifalda’. I have added Sarita
as bonustrack. ( see other picture, also in the file)

With Eliseo Herrera, Lisandro Mesa, Julio Erazo,
Calixto Ochoa, César Castro & Tony Zuñiga ..

El Ritmo Me Esta Gustando – Various Artists
Tropical LD-1547

Weinig Colombiaanse platen gepost de laatste twee maanden.
Daar gaan we weer eens wat aan doen. Om te beginnen heb ik
hier een verzameling Tropical de Colombia en vallenato in ge-
varieerde stijl. Twaalf songs door vier verschillende artiesten.
Prettige verzameling nummers met veel variatie, pompo, pa-
seaito, paseo, guaracha, cumbia, merengue en gaita. Op het
tropical label waarschijnlijk uit de vroege
jaren zeventig. Luister en deel ..

Been posting little Colombian music the past two months, about
time to change the mood a bit in that direction. To start with I
have this cocktail of Tropical de Colombia and vallenato in
various styles. twelve songs by four different artists..Delightful
bunch of songs with lots of variety, pompo, paseaito, paseo,
guaracha, cumbia, merengue and gaita. On the Tropical label,
probably from early seventies, listen and share ..

Los Corraleros – Nuevo Tumbao

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..

What can I say ? You know I’m a lover of this type of
music. I could keep annoying you with superlatives
concerning this album but I really think it’s best if you
listen first and make up your own mind about it. Can
you tell us who you see on the frontsleeve ? I am sure
about two or three myself, how many do you know ?
By the way, this is an original old yellow Fuentes
label on a very thick and heavy slice of vinyl, wow..

Corraleros, front

Hello and good morning on this Easterday. I think it’s for the first
time we are having us a white Easter. Even with Chrsitmas we
had better weather, it’s cold and snowing on this 31st of march.
Spring just doesn’t realise we’re already entering april tomorrow.

Winter or spring, we play tropical music all year round so that
makes no difference. Today I’ll spoil you with some ‘Tropical de
Colombia’. From 1975 on Discos Fuentes de Medellin Colombia
we’ve got this wonderful album by Los Corraleros de Majagual.
This supergroup had relations with the most fantastic artists.
On this album alone we find Lisandro Meza, Eliseo Herrera,
Julio Erazo and Calixto Ochoa to name just a few. But they
also hosted Alfredo Gutierrez, Lucho Argain and Nacho
Paredes among many others. Great vocalists, hot
rhythmsection and horns, better don’t miss..
