Johnny Pacheco - 10 Great
Years, Fania 1973







Another great Johnny Pacheco LP, from 1973 on Fania.
This copy has been played almost too often, unfortunately it has
a little hiss and track # 7 starts with a crack and a jump, but still
I didn't want to withhold this beautiful album from you. '10 Great
Years', from '63 to '73, Johnny Pacheco comes in with a nice
selection of hits from between those years. Singers are, like on
many of Pacheco's albums, 'Pete 'El Conde' Rodriguez', and
Chivirico Davila. I quote the backcover;
" For the past 10 years, Johnny Pacheco has been one of the biggest
influences in Latin Music. A favorite with both the Latino and the
American dancing public since his rise to national fame with the
Pachanga, Johnny keeps you moving and swinging with his
'tipico' rhythms. In this collectors album, you will be able
to sample some of the hit tunes which have delighted
people over the past 10 years."

El Gran Pacheco - Cañonazo,
Fania 1972





Until now we saw two great latinlabels at Global Groove.
the Colombian label, "discos Fuentes' and New York label 'SAR'.
It's about time to post some latin of the great 'Fania', a New
York label that started early 70's, correct me if I'm wrong.
One of Fania's biggest stars through the years is without any
doubt, 'Johnny Pacheco'. I quote the backcover of this LP;
Sound, rhythm, and change.....three words that seem to go
well with Johnny Pacheco. The sound was Charanga, the
rhythm was Pachanga,and the change was welcomed by
dancers around the world; but this is a restless world of
innovations, and the most restless of all is JOHNNY !
Change the sound, change the rhythm, charge the air with
musical energy......the flute become drums, the violins
become trumpets, blend in voices, and the metamorphosis
is complete. Fania Records is proud to launch this new
sound which is being presented to you,
the listener, by Johnny Pacheco.

Etoile de Dakar - Absa Gueye,
pam 1980








When early eighties the first Youssou N'Dour LP, 'Immigrès/Bitim
rew' reached me, I was astonished. What a different sound. After
some digging I found the LP he worked on before that, 'Absa Gueye'.
Listen and find out what a treasure this is. Years later I went to a
Youssou N'Dour concert in 'Nighttown' Rotterdam, It was great
and as I left the building, some of the band's people were selling
'tama's' ( talking drums )at the corridor. 200 Dutch Guilders they
asked( in those days ), quite some money I thought. They were
friendly pushing me to buy the drum and told me they were made
by 'Assane Thiam', Youssou's Tamaplayer. Wow, now I got really
interested, these were fine pieces of handicraft by the great 'Assane'.
I said ;" okay, I'll buy one if you have it signed by Youssou N'Dour",
and so it went. LUCKY BASTARD I AM !The guy went away
with the talking drum and within 3 or 4 minutes he was back with
it, signed on one side by Youssou N'Dour, and on the other side
by 'Assane Thiam'. To our surprise the whole group was sitting at
the nextdoor snackbar later, having fun and in a very relaxed
atmosphere, they were giving autographs
to everybody, supernice.

King Sunny Adé - Ajoo,
Sunny Alade Records, 1983






From Nigeria we have here, King Sunny Adé and his African Beats,
this is Juju music, a laydback smooth type of African music with humming
talkingdrums, steeley guitars and mellow voices. It's incredible to hear
18 people play like ONE, beautiful. Ajoo was also released in a European
cut which is very different from this African release. One sidenote; The first
3 numbers are melted together as if they are one, it was very difficult to
cut it into 3 numbers, considering the fact I don't understand a word they
sing here, I am SURE I cut them completely wrong, please forgive me.

you know what to expect here, Composer is a funny guy,

I first heard Aparecida on 'Roda de Samba', also from 1975,

Produced by Durval Ferreira and with the participation of

Lord Kitchener - '67, RCA International Camden 1967

The late Sixties was the time Calypso flourished the most in my opinion.
This LP sounds a bit like a fireside recording ( lot's of cracks )
but still, it's the best calypso I've ever heard,
Lord Kitchener is the Master.

1 '67
