Arsenio Rodriguez y su Conjunto – Arsenio
Puchito 1957

arsenio-rodriguez-front

Long gone but not forgotten, born Ignacio Arsenio Travieso Scull
in 1911. Known as Arsenio Rodriguez and died in 1970. We still
love his work hence the fact he is king of downloads with his no.1
album ‘Primitivo’ at this page. This is a record I recently purchased
for quite a price. Better get it now you lucky bastards..

Al geruime tijd van de aardbol maar nog lang niet vergeten, geboren
als Ignacio Arsenio Travieso Scull in 1911. Wij, liefhebbers van zijn
heerlijk werk, draaien hem nog steeds met grote regelmaat getuige zijn
nummer één notering in onze downloadgeschiedenis hier op de Global Groove.
Arsenio Rodriguez overleed in 1970 reeds.Deze schijf vinyl kocht ik onlangs
voor een aanzienlijke prijs op de beurs. Pak hem maar snel,
zooitje mazzelpikken dat je d’r loopt..

Eliseo Herrera y su Conjunto – Esto esta Tachuela
Discos Fuentes

eliseo-herrera-front

Naar mijn mening was hij een van de grootste vocalisten voortgebracht
door Los Corraleros de Majagual. Eliseo Herrera, hier met zijn eigen Conjunto.
Op 5 maart is het precies een jaar geleden dat hij overleed op 91 jarige leeftijd.
Misschien een mooi moment om hem te herdenken en nog eens te eren door
zijn muziek te beluisteren. Ik ben een fan vanaf de eerste keer dat ik hem hoorde.

To my opinion he was one of the greatest vocalists that came from collaborating
with Los Corraleros de Majagual. Eliseo Herrera, on this album with his own
Conjunto. On the 5th of march to come it was exactly one year ago our hero passed
away age 91. Maybe a fine moment to remember him and honour him once more
by listening to his music. I’m a fan ever since I heard him first time..

Andrés Landero y su Conjunto – La Fiebre
Discos Fuentes 1975

Andrés Landero, voorkant

Uit 1975 hebben we vandaag deze Andrés Landero elpee.
La Fiebre heeft helaas midden in het eerste nummer wat
achtergrond geluid, het is niet anders. Landero’s platen
zijn zo moeilijk te vinden, we mogen al blij zijn dat hij
verder goed speelt. Hoe dan ook, de muziek is zeldzaam
goed en ik ben dan ook blij deze te mogen brengen,
pak hem snel en geniet ervan..

from 1975 we have this Andrés Landero album today.
La Fiebre unfortunately has some background noise
halfway the first track, so be it. Landero’s elpees are
so hard to find, we’re already lucky it plays well overall.
One way or the other, the music is awesome and I’m
very glad to be able to bring it, get it and enjoy listening.

Pacho Rada – Sipote Luto
Discos Fuentes 1973

Pacho Rada, front

El Acordeon del Diablo.
A couple of years ago I discovered this little film at Youtube.
The story of Francisco ‘Pacho’ Rada made an unforgettable
impression and ever since I’ve been trying to find his music.
Shortly my buddy Sanjay came back from Colombia and
brought back this album which pleased me enormously.
The story starts with this rumour, a German ship full of
acordeons was told to be wrecked at the Colombian coast.
It is said that this is how the acordeon landed up at the
atlantic coast of Colombia where earlier they had only
made music using strings, rhythm and flute or gaita.
I was struck by the passage in which the old Pacho Rada
tells about his poverty despite all the songs he wrote.
Songs that made guys like Alfredo Gutierrez very rich,
Alfredo’s face speaks for itself when listening to the
poor old man. Hope you can follow a little Spanish,
enjoy watching and listening..to Francisco el hombre.
By the way, it is still unclear to me if there’s a link
between the old Pacho Rada and Pachito Rada Ortiz.
Check https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_el_Hombre
There is a lot of discussion going on about the true story,
one believes it, the other doesn’t, see for yourself..

Francisco „Pacho“ Rada Bautista * 11 Mai 1907 in
Las Mulas Magdalena , † 17 July 2003 in Santa Marta.
He was told to be the originator of
the ‘Vallenato’ we know today..

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
