Los Guaracheros del Acordeon

Los Guaracheros del Acordeon, front

Today I tried my new cleaning tool for vinyl first time and
I think it’s done the job quite well. The record looks very
clean and sounds the same, in short, it’s been approved.

Five artists, of which we’ve seen only one so far, share this
album. Two songs each, one on every side of the album.
Only Anibal Velasquez appeared here before, the others
were new to me when I first found this record. They are
very welcome with their warm tropical sound, I’d say
do not hesitate and listen to these great Colombians.

01 – Ramiro Beltran y su Conjunto – El avispon

Write his name in our search-bar and find the one album
by his hand we already had. Today’s lp is one in various styles,
from cumbia to cumbión, guaracha, pasaje and such. It bursts
of percussional beats on pots and pans, no just joking but the
tambó is very hot on this album and one song is happier than
the other. I can’t seem to get enough of this sound, how
’bout you ? If anyone should know a year of release,
please do not hesitate and leave us a message.
Meantime give it a spin and enjoy..

Jimmy Pedrozo con Franklin Ariza vol. 2
Paso la Vida Pensando, Discos Tropical 1985

Jimmy Pedrozo, front

In 1986 Globestyle released the album ‘Fiesta Vallenata’, part of
the series ‘Accordions that shook the world’. it contains a few
songs that captured me from the very start. Lo mas sabroso
by Jimmy Pedrozo & Franklin Ariza struck me like lightning.
I had never heard such music before and it was more or less
the beginning of my search for more. The lp is available here.

Other songs that hit me instantly were the other two Jimmy
pedrozo songs and ‘India Matea’ by Miguel Duran. I’m still on
the look out to find the album containing that song. Yesterday
my buddy Sanjay payed me a visit and a big surprise came
along with him. After 30 years finally I found volume 2 of Jimmy
Pedrozo & Franklin Ariza. In fact, Sanjay is the man that helped
me searching and he found it in Bogota. What a special moment
when listening to it first time. The song ‘Lo mas sabroso’ must be
on volume 1 so the search continues but for now we are so lucky
to be able to listen to “Paso la vida pensando” by Jimmy Pedrozo
con Franklin Ariza y su Conjunto, hope U like..

have this one today. It is from 1974 and contains golpe,

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..
