Cumbias Tipicas - Various Artists
Discos Fuentes

Well Chuckie Jo, that is so nice to hear that I could not
resist posting you some cumbia straight away. American
rednecks that love cumbia are quite rare I reckon and the
fact alone calls for a reward. Suck on this collector for a
while, it contains songs by the finest artists in the field.
Cumbia is such happy music, I can fully understand
you getting addicted to it, I am a sucker for it too..

lo Primero Conjunto Miramar - Carruseles,
Grabaciones Originales Ondina
Dia Disquera Antioqueña

Okay fellow groovers, back to reality. When I first saw
this lp, I was naive and thought it had something to do
with Colombian salsa band 'Sonora Carruseles'. And
when listening to the first track one continues to feel
a certain link with the group. However after searching
the web for it, I didn't find anything. Listening to the lp
I got captured by surprise, as pleased as punch, "lo
Primero Conjunto Miramar" found it's self another fan.
Original songs, no salsa but cumbias, porros, pregon,
Guaracha, son and guajira, pure sweetness to the ear.
Now I have tried to convince you before, so no more
superlatives, just get it and give it a spin..azúcar !..

Cumbias Solamente Cumbias - Varias Artistas
Discos Fuentes 1976

When you take this lp in your hands and look for any scratches,
you won't find them. Listening to it however I'm affraid we have
to accept some noises towards the end of side-b. Especially
track 11. side-a is clean but is slightly off centre so getting
closer to track 6 it is starting to sound false a bit. Now about
the quality of the music, that's another story. Take the second
number, 'El aguacero' by Anibal Velasquez, I fell in love with
that song straight away, the backing drums are somehow
quite different, I love'm, simply irresistible..
Overall, wonderful release, awesome
cover, some great tunes,
small disturbing

Colacho Mendoza, su voz, su acordeón
Composiciones de él y sus Compadres
con su Conjunto, Concierto Vallenato
Además Pedro García y Esteban Salas

Friends of vallenato, attention. This old record brings us
some of the finest. It starts out with Emiliano Zuleta’s
‘Gota Fria’, a straight hit if you ask me. Nicolás ‘Colacho’
Mendoza is vocally accompanied by his friends Pedro
García Díaz and Esteban Salas. The rest of the group are;
Adán Enrique Monteras – guacharaca
Juán José Calderón – cajero
Carlos Huertas Trujillo – guitarra
Justo Velázquez – bajo
Carlos Veléz – cencerro
Acordeón by Nicolás ‘Colacho’ Mendoza
I am not exactly sure about the year of release, the back-
sleeve speaks of 1967 but my Spanish is not good enough.
Can anyone translate and tell us please ?
Great, thanks in advance, now get listening and be sure to
spread it around, enjoy..

Calixto Ochoa y su Conjunto
Grandes Exitos, Discos Fuentes 1984

Hello groovers, I am sorry we have such a little amount of posts
these days. Other work is consuming my time and energy but
no worries, we're still here and although in a slow pace, also
still working on the new page. Today I want to ask your kind
attention for this swell artist. Calixto Ochoa is one of the main
composers if we speak of Colombian tropical styles such as
cumbia, porro, paseo among others. This Discos Fuentes
'Grandes Exitos' brings us some of his better compositions.
Enjoy Calixto Ochoa's hot tropical sound and pass it on..

Don't be misled by this tasteless cover,
the music is nothing like the picture..

Chico Cervantes y su Conjunto Internacional
En la Onda de Chico Cervantes,
Caliente 1973

Caliente means hot, and hot it is ! This album from 1973 is sure
to get you in a dancing mood. With it's infectious guaracha's,
cumbia's and paseaito's it ain't easy to remain seated. Chico
Cervantes appears first time at the GG today (part from one song)
and we're proud to have him. Next to incredibly nice music it has
a typical and somewhat strange trippy sleeve, I love it. Another
sure thing is, if I deejay on somebody's birthday party in the future,
the fifth track of this lp will pass by to make certain that happy
moment. Better don't wait or hesitate...get on Chico's wave
and tell your friends to go there too...

Morgan Blanco - El Virtuoso del Acordeon,

The vallenato of Morgan Blanco with it's jumpy basslines
and happy accordeon is one I love to play. Such a shame
this lp has so many scratches. One way or the other, I still
love to give it a spin, the music is great. Maybe someone
can give it a cleaning treatment and throw it back in. Would
be wonderful. Be sure to snatch it while you can..cheers..

Los Corraleros de Majagual - ¡ Nos Fuimos !
Discos Fuentes 1975

Hello and good morning on this Easterday. I think it's for the first
time we are having us a white Easter. Even with Chrsitmas we
had better weather, it's cold and snowing on this 31st of march.
Spring just doesn't realise we're already entering april tomorrow.

Winter or spring, we play tropical music all year round so that
makes no difference. Today I'll spoil you with some 'Tropical de
Colombia'. From 1975 on Discos Fuentes de Medellin Colombia
we've got this wonderful album by Los Corraleros de Majagual.
This supergroup had relations with the most fantastic artists.
On this album alone we find Lisandro Meza, Eliseo Herrera,
Julio Erazo and Calixto Ochoa to name just a few. But they
also hosted Alfredo Gutierrez, Lucho Argain and Nacho
Paredes among many others. Great vocalists, hot
rhythmsection and horns, better don't miss..

Alfredo Gutierrez y
sus Acordeones Dorados
Canta Nacho Paredes -
Cumbias de oro,
Discos Fuentes 1976

Once I got acquainted with this type of music, there
was no way of stopping that train. A whole new territory
to explore, the Discos Fuentes 1970's brought loads of
sweet cumbia. It took some time to find but recently we got
real lucky. Take this here lp, Alfredo Gutierrez joined with
us in 2008 with one album, october 23rd. Always on the
lookout for Fuentes, last fair made me a happy man. At
last, a small pile of Colombian treasure found it's way
and ended on this fools shelf. Nacho Paredes is the
singer on this one, marvelous voices,
rolling beats & golden accordeons..

For this saturday a re-up and re-post. Anibal Velasquez is still one of

ever get the chance to see him perform do not hesitate and buy that
ticket instantly. I hope to get that chance myself one fine day.
For now, enjoy this oldie but very goodie oncemore, check # 8.

Lucho Bermudez y su Orquesta -
Cosas de Lucho, CBS

Did you enjoy that Colombian compilation I called 'Cumbia Sabrosa'?
You can find it back on may 31, 2008, in our archives. It contained
that hot track, 'Colombia tierra querida'. Lucho Bermudez was one of
the orchestral leaders that wrote history. Check out this album with
the traditional pretty lady cover. Gaita, porro, merengue, paseo,
cumbia and bolero by one of Colombia's master composers.

Buenisimas vol. 2 - Various Artists, Sonolux 1982

Sonolux from Medellin Colombia released this collector in 1982.
It contains some Colombian highlites from the 70's and early 80's.
The cover makes you expect a quite commercial album and it does have
one or two of those tracks. On the other hand we find a few great
songs. Anibal Velasques always makes a difference and Alfredo Linares'
Tiahuanaco swings fantastic, but my favourite is absolutely track #3,
by Los Montuneros.


1 Los Tremendos de Colombia - Ese amor
2 Darigil y su Combo - Cumbia Calentana
3 Los Montuneros - Francisco del otro lado
4 Los Alegres de San Basilio - La espina
5 Don Medardo y sus Players - La ladrona
6 Grupo Chambacu - Alhucema con Romero
7 Grupo Escala - Porque eme sigues
8 Anibal Velasques - Un poquito de cariño
9 Alfredo Linares - Tiahuanaco
10 Tamara - La limosna
