Cesar Castro, front

He was one of the many singers with Los Corraleros de Majagual
but made a bunch of records under his own name as well. Cesar
Castro is here with an album from 1973. His style of vallenato is
very enjoyable and his acordeon weeps just the way we like.
Listen to another hot disc on Caliente..

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..

01 – La estaca
02 – El dios cantor
03 – Donde esta ruben
04 – La flor de villanueva

Luis E. Martinez
Alejandro Durán
Andrés Landero
3 Reyes del Acordeon vol. 5,
Tropical LD-1324, 1966

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..

tracks;

01 – Alejandro Durán – Cosa sabrosa
02 – Luis E. Martinez – La tijera
03 – Andrés Landero – Dolor guajiro
04 – Alejandro Durán – Florecita
05 – Luis E. Martinez – Si ella quiere
06 – Andrés Landero – La experiencia
07 – Arturo Cabarces – La sombra
08 – Alejandro Durán – El borracho
09 – Luis E. Martinez – Ana victoria

Los Campeones del Festival Vallenato!
Alejandro Duran, Luis Enrique Martinez
y la Cancion Ganadora: “Pedazo de Acordeon”,
Discos Fuentes 1968

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
04 – Alejandro Duran – Sielba maria
05 – Alejandro Duran – El perro
06 – Alejandro Duran – El leñazo
07 – Luis Enrique Martinez – La villa del rosario
08 – Luis Enrique Martinez – La dejo el tren
09 – Luis Enrique Martinez – La carta
10 – Luis Enrique Martinez – Alcirita
11 – Luis Enrique Martinez – Hombre modelo
12 – Luis Enrique Martinez – Que triste me dejas

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.

tracks;

1 El tachuelo
2 La rabadilla
3 El San Anterano
4 La champeta
5 Playa blanca
6 Aurora
7 Mosaico
8 Puya Bayunquera

10 Las mañanitas

– Bonustracks;

Los Millonarios – 19 Exitos Bailables ! ,vol. 4, Discos Fuentes

Los Millonarios, front, cd size

Here’s a post, especially interesting for it’s collector’s value, more then
for it’s musical value. ‘Los Millonarios’ played instrumental versions of
well known songs. For instance, ‘No me busques’ of ‘Los Corraleros
de Majagual’, or ‘El carretera’ of ‘Guillermo Portabales’. It gives an
impression of all the styles played in Colombian music. And as always,
‘Discos Fuentes’ brings a cover with a pretty girl. Check back cover
for style info. Attention : Track no. 1 jumps one time !

tracks;

1 El burrito
2 Dios como te amo / Espumita del rio
3 No me busques / Pedazo de acordeon
4 La Bogotana
5 El besito
