Roberto Torres

It has been almost two years since we had us a record

by Roberto Torres it is always right. The one we find
here today is a classic. Fernando Lavoy does the vocal
parts. Engineered by John Fausty and tremendous
sleeve design by José Expósito. A must have ..

Het is alweer bijna twee jaar geleden dat we een plaat

Lavoy, enginnering door John Fausty en een omslag
ontworpen door José Expósito. Een must have ..

Today it is 50 years ago the world lost its greatest Cuban
tres player, composer and bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez.
August 31, 1911 – December 30, 1970.
During the 1940’s there was rivalry between the Conjunto’s
of Arsenio and Antonio Arcaño. The album we have today
was a kind of battle between the two. Side one covers five
songs with Arsenio Rodriguez’ Conjunto and side two five
songs with Antonio Arcaño and his Conjunto. Read more

Trio Matamoros – Trio Matamoros
Ansonia SALP 1282, 1996

Good morning, yesterday I was clearly not very much awake
yet. The album we had with Los Matamoros was absolutely
by Miguel Matamoros and Trio Matamoros. Our friend Ian
already suggested it and he’s right. Stupid enough I had posted
this record two years ago which contains exactly the same songs.
I clearly didn’t do my homework properly. One way or the other,
Trio Matamoros was indeed one of the most popular in their era
and made many wonderful songs. Ciro Rodriguez, Rafael Cueto
and Miguel Matamoros had been inseperable for over thirty-five
years. They were the pride of Cuba. Today therefore another
elpee with their sweet music, enjoy listening ..

Goede morgen, ik was gisteren duidelijk nog niet helemaal wak-
ker. De plaat die ik postte met Los Matamoros was absoluut met
miguel Matamoros en zijn Trio. Onze vriend Ian suggereerde dit
al en hij heeft gelijk. Stom genoeg heb ik twee jaar geleden zelf
deze elpee al gepost die dezelfde nummers bevat. Doe toch je
huiswerk wat beter Moos, ehem .. Hoe dan ook, Trio Matamoros
was in de jaren de trots van Cuba en maakte vele mooie nummers.
Vandaag daarom nog zo’n fijn album. Ciro Rodriguez, Rafael Cueto
en Miguel Matamoros waren meer dan 35 jaar onafscheidelijk.
luister wederom met veel plezier ..

Los Megatones de Lucho – ¡Tanta Ropa!
Discomoda 1967

This is DCM-407 on the Discomoda label from Medellin, Colombia.
It first appeared in 1967. Tanta Ropa, (so many cloths) seems to be
a joke. The girl on the frontcover was naked at first. In a later sta-
dium they have drawn a little bikini over the picture. Still not en-
tirely comfortable, as if ‘Me Too’ already existed, Discomoda then
re-released the album under the title of the first song, ‘Ambiente
de Guaracha’, with another sleeve. (small pic) Luis Gonzalez, or Lucho,
was the frontman of the group. The record has some background noise,
the salsa however is still quite enjoyable. Get it, spread it and listen ..

Dit is DCM-407 op het Discomoda label uit Medellin, Colombia. De
plaat verscheen oorspronkelijk in 1967. Tanta Ropa (zoveel kleding)
lijkt een spottende titlel te zijn. het meisje op de hoes was oorspronkelijk
naakt maar in een later stadium is er een klein bikini’tje overheen getekend.
Nog niet helemaal comfortabel, alsof ‘Me Too’ reeds bestond, bracht Disco-
moda de plaat opnieuw uit. Nu met de titel van het eerste nummer, ‘Am-
biente de Guaracha’, en met een andere hoes. (zie kleine foto) Luis Gonzales
ofwel ‘Lucho’ was de leider van de band. Het album heeft wat achtergrond
geluid maar de salsa is nog steeds lekker. Down, deel en luister weer ..

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)

Calixto Ochoa, César Castro & Tony Zuñiga ..

died november 15 1989. Together with Abel Antonio Villa, Andrés
