cd from Miss Lyn free latin cds outside La Internacional Food, Somerville,
mass. Power Mix Latino II (Latin house
mixes): Varios Artistas. 1997. wikipedia sez "Latin House music
is an electronic dance music that combines house and Latin American
music, such as that of Puerto Rican, Dominican and African origin".
stylistic origins, which I DO hear are: house; EDM; Latin music;
reggae; dancehall; hip-hop; reggaeton. It WAS $8 before left on
Somerville Ave. and Amazon lists it for $7.15 plus $3.99 shipping.

Gumdrops era!). genre; latin. electronic. styles; club/dance. latin
pop. Tropical (it was "One more rainy day" as I had Brazil
coffee and Peru sandwich singing "who loves the son").
"La Bamba" gets remade on this and celia Cruz does"Bemba
Colora"! (born 21 Oct 25; this release on her 72nd birthday!
37 albums, This toon done in '60s with Tito Punete; hey update/remakes
are good! A good song is timeless! Ask Beethoven, people still cover
him AND "roll over...").... also of note: "Noche
de Fiesta" - el general. (Panama recording artist). Remezcla
> music > el general- satan... "El General says Satan
drove him to make reggae en Espanol!" (on the other hand, Hixx
sing "Satan stole my pick up!"). dig these quotes!: "satan
benefitted from the success of the singer's hits"....."he
was influenced by "malas companiaas....overcoming his religious
belief and convincing him to record sexually suggestive party jams"
(Gizmos, '76; been there done that!). "he had to drink to get
the devil's word out' (yikes! c'est moi!) "songs played on
all the radio stations. That was a trophy for satan" (!!!!
is me!!!!). 'now a devout jehovah's witness'....Michael Jackson
used to go door to door....case closed! ka- klunk! (binging on Law
and Order during the Plague)"....

Bleu Monntag 30 March 20. relistening to Power Mix Latino II (Latin
House Mixes) 1997 cd and one of the Varios Artistas was the Kings
of mambo with "Cuentame". Sounds like they sampled a mambo
and it's I to a V, then I to a IV, great riff! WhoSampled > Alicides-castellanos
says Alicides castellanos did "speak up mambo (Cuentame)"
in 1955 on the mardi Gras label; covered by Manhattan Transfer in
1976 and sampled by La Excepcion (2006) in "Jambo Loco".
wikipedia explains it all: "Al castellanos was a Cuban bandleader
of 1940s/50s. Him, Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez first three to record
for Tico records in NY.1955, he signed a three-year deal with leading
NY Latin label Mardi Gras Records and had his first hit "The
Speak- Up Mambo". I think my parents had mambo/cha cha records....i
need them! Things to do during lockdown: Do the mambo in your room!

Til Tuesday 31 march 20. Another Miss Lyn latin music score; a cassette
of 16 Super Exitos/ Album Homenaje a Victor Pinero discomoda KC-1005.
"30 Anos 1944-1974". Amazon lists the cd as $29.98 + $4.49
shipping. ebay has it for $49.99. Caveat emptor! Sofa records >
fr > victor-pinero-y... Lyon France; lists "rare 60s original
pressing of Venezulan star Victor Pinero, playing merengue, palenque
and some Cumbia classics". All other info in espanol, I am
poquino on comprende. BUT wikipdia lists the start of his career,
kinda; born 10 may 23, he'd be 21 in 1944. "Venezuala during
"all this and world war II"-wikpedia. venezuala was neutral
during the war, but entered on the "winning side" February
1945. This wiki article mentions "Axis influence". In
1933, Grupo Regional de Venezuala de Partido nazi. In 1923: "Partito
Nazionale fascista". All I can imagine is fascists/nazis and
Allies all hanging at a club ala casablanca with Bogart saying "play
it again Victor"!......
