Andrés Landero y su Conjunto – Voy a la Fiesta
Discos Fuentes 1970

andres-landero-front

Good morning groovers, as you can see this album by the great
Andrés Landero is not in prime condition. His records are hard to
find and until we walk into a better copy, we’ll have to settle with
this one. The sound quality is reasonable until the last track which
has some background noise unfortunately. One way or the other,
I’m still happy to have it, get it and spread it now..

Goeiemorgen groevers, je ziet het al direkt, deze plaat van de grote
Andrés Landero verkeert niet in top conditie. Zoals reeds eerder gezegd
liggen zijn albums niet voor het oprapen dus totdat er een betere kopie
wordt gevonden zullen we het met deze moeten doen. De geluidskwaliteit
is redelijk tot aan het laatste nummer een welk helaas wat rumoer met zich
meebrengt. Evenzogoed niet getreurd, we zijn blij dat we’m hebben dus
geen getreuzel en haal ‘m maar snel binnen, veel luisterplezier..

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..

Calixto Ochoa – Me voy pal’ Campo
Costeño

Calixto Ochoa, front

One of our visitors told me. On the 18th of november the world
lost one of the greatest in vallenato. He was one of the members
of Los Corraleros de Majagual and formed his own group later.
Calixto de jesús Ochoa died in a hospital in Sincelejo, Sucre,
Colombia age 81. He won the prestigeous Festival Vallenato
in 1970 and was responsable for quite some hits like ‘los
Sabanales’, ‘Mata’e Caña’, ‘el Mosquito’ and many others.
He was a gifted singer and acordeonist. I dug up this
record which contains eight songs by his hand.
Enjoy and remember Calixto Ochoa.

Okay okay, more Colombian music, I know..I just couldn’t wait
digitising this one. From 1974 and on the ‘Carnaval’ label, this
is a straight killer. It may sound a little aged, true, but these 10
songs are absolutely marvelous. Five singers with astonishing
voices who bring their vallenatos with so much fire and energy,
it will stir up your summer party guaranteed. It does mine I tell
ya…and my new idol, ..Heliodoro Martinez, absolutely.
Do not wait and get it straight away..

Lisandro Meza y su Conjunto
El Dios Cantor, Discos Fuentes 1974

Lisandro, front

Another red cover, it is pure coincidence. Lisandro Meza
y su Conjunto are here. From the very beginning of this
album we can hear how much fun these guys were having.
Lisandro was part of the famous Corraleros de Majagual
since 1962 when he was 23 years of age. Born in 1939 in
Corozal, Lisandro recorded some 110 albums of which we
have this one today. It is from 1974 and contains golpe,
vallenato, Paseo, puya, rumbita and merengue.
I am a fan since I first heard his work. Don’t
hesitate, get it and spread it now..

3 Reyes del Acordeon, front

It was in october of 2014 that I posted volume two in this series.
It resulted in quite some happy reactions and I promised to bring
the other volumes as well. Now today it is volume 5’s turn. I have
volume three waiting and am still on the look out for #1 and #4.
On side two of the album we see two other names. Track 7 is sung
by Arturo Cabarces but I think with the acordeon of Andrés Landero
and then track 12 is sung by Adriano Salas but I think with the
acordeon of Luis Enrique Martinez. If I’m wrong please leave
us a note. Meanwhile enjoy listening..

Los Campeones del Festival Vallenato!
Alejandro Duran, Luis Enrique Martinez
y la Cancion Ganadora: “Pedazo de Acordeon”,
Discos Fuentes

Pedazo de Acordeon, front

Sometimes the vinyl is so thin, the album we have here for
instance, one can almost fold it double. Off course the first
thing that suffers from it is the sound quality of the record.
Early seventies we had that oilcrisis which caused prices
of vinyl to go up as well. The quality of the music itself is
a different matter, Alejandro Duran and Luis Enrique
Martinez share this lp, each six tracks. Part from
the sound quality it is a fine record, twelve
songs by two great artists..

tracks;

01 – Alejandro Duran – Pedazo de acordeon
02 – Alejandro Duran – Cero treinta y nueve
03 – Alejandro Duran – Cachucha bacana

Pedro Laza y su Banda, Discos Fuentes 1979 plus Bonustracks

Pedro Laza, front

Today I thought I’d post us some Colombian music. ‘Navidad Negra’
which I addad as a bonustrack is a good example of music they
play in Colombia with Christmas. Pedro Laza is the man who wrote
lots of such songs. On ‘El güiro’ vocals by Daniel Santos, on ‘La
cosecha de mujeres’ vocals by José Maria Peñaranda.
On ‘Cumbia en el monte’ vocals by Pascual Rovira, on ‘Navidad Negra’
vocals by Tito Cortes. On ‘La calle 13’ and ‘La negra caliente’
vocals by Crescencio Gamacho.
As for me, I can play this type of music all year through, such
happy sound should be for always.
