¡Por fin! llegó el disco que estábas esperando, el disco que has buscado toda tu vida y nunca lo has podido encontrar, incluye la canción que siempre has querido saber como se llama y nunca te lo han dicho.

Lo mas seguro es que no reconozcas la portada, ni el grupo ni nada de nada, pero si eres un treintón como el sr. mexicant, entonces este disco es para ti.

El grupo se llama Quartz, el disco lleva el mismo nombre y la canción 1 también, bueno ¿y cual es esa canción? se preguntarán ustedes, pues nada mas y nada menos que es la que salía en la Carabina de Ambrosio, esa que bailaba Gina Montes y que durante toda mi vida me había preguntado como demonios se llamaba esa canción, por cierto, la canción viene sin la edición que le hicieron para el programa, ésta dura 13 minutos.

Gracias a San eBay, se pudo conseguir el disco, ¡el vinil venía aun sellado!, así que la calidad de la grabación es excelente, no tiene hiss, ni pops, ni nada, por lo que por primera vez el sr. mexicant ha decidido, además de subir el disco de la manera tradicional, agregar el archivo en formato FLAC.

Si deseas bajar los archivos FLAC tienes que bajar las 2 partes para poder descomprimir, y están aquí y aquí.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in the early 80's, there was a TV show called "La Carabina de Ambrosio", it was one of the best comedy shows ever produced in mexican TV, the show intro featured a gorgeous dancer called Gina Montes, who danced along a very catchy (and edited) instrumental disco song, which for years and years I tried to track down, it was impossible to get it because there where no credits shown. Thanks to the internet and eBay, el sr. was finally able to get the album (still sealed!), and for your delight the album was uploaded in FLAC format also.
Track number 1 is the song I was talking about.

So if you don't know the show, you might not like this post at all, so beware!

And here's the track list:

Side A:
01 - Quartz
Side B:
02 - Beyond The Clouds
03 - For Geromine
04 - Chaos

Please Enjoy!! and remember to play this record only on Stereo Equipment!

Well my friends I think I owe you an explanation for my long absence from mexicovers, the thing is that I got a full time job a little more than 2 years ago so it became imposible to keep up with all the work that this place needs, I was used to upload 1 album per week, you can say it's an easy job but it really isn't, first I had to buy the record, then clean it, make the transfer to my computer, clean the audio, scan the covers and so on....the process from start to finish took me almost 3 days (95% of the albums here were done that way).

I once envisioned this place to be like a starting point and a reference to all things mexican, specially retro design and vintage mexican music, in order to give people from other cultures a glimpse of what mexican culture USED to be, you know... there was really a time when we had good music, good films, great design and a great culture overall.

Anyways, the sad thing here is that I had a series of (computerly speaking) tragedies:

  1. My hard disks were getting full so I decided to buy a 1Tb Seagate Hard disk to back up everything I had "dowloaded" back from 6 years ago, hard to get vinyl transfers, movies, family pictures, etc., etc.
  2. The new 1Tb disk was defective, so I lost the data 3 days later (data means E-VERY-THING I-HAD).
  3. Decided to replace the faulty disk and got a new one, but at that very same time I was moving from my old house to a new one and found out (the hard way), that the electrical wiring was faulty, so one day I came back from work to find everything plugged in was blown.
  4. I'm using a live CD (KANOTIX) right now, but my hard disks are gone, I don't wan't mexicovers to disappear, but at the moment there's nothing much I can do. So until more prosper times, I'll go idle for a while.
  5. Come back soon, I intend to keep alive and update this place in the not so distant future.
  6. I'll try to answer the mail.
  7. Finally, thanks for visiting mexicovers and remember to play all records only on Stereo Equipment!.

Rock!

Los Locos del Ritmo were one of Mexico's pioneering rock bands. This was their first album which was recorded in one night, but the quality is great, my favourite song is track number 2, La Cucaracha.
Back in those times, mexican rock bands played mostly covers of american rock songs, but Los Locos del Ritmo managed to play some original compositions, which were not bad at all.

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01 - Nena No Me Importa
02 - La Cucaracha
03 - Tus Ojos
04 - Un Gran Pedazo De Amor
05 - Morelia
06 - Blues Tempo
Side B:
07 - Crecidito Para Amar
08 - Un Vasito Con Agua
09 - Pedro Pistolas
10 - El Mongol
11 - Yo No Soy Rebelde
12 - Geraldine

This is the original post, it's too hot in here to be writing right now, so see you until next post.

One more thing: It's a big file (341 mb) so beware!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's a well known fact that a lot of people bought an organ or tried to learn to play one, thanks to the influence of at least one of his 74 Albums, almost all by the name of "Juan Torres & His Melodic Organ".

When I was a kid, my mom used to have one that she liked to play whenever we had guests coming over for dinner (and now I can't eat anything unless there's some album of him playing in the background), and I guess many other moms (or dads) used to do the same, mainly because Juan Torres covered a lot of musical tastes, with albums ranging from classical music, to mariachi or international hits, as you would hear later on.

This was a request from someone who lost his only tape from Juan Torres, so in compensation here's a 7 disc boxset.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There's no tracklist today, because it's too big and it'll take another post just for it, but here's the list of the 7 albums:

Disc 1 (International Hits)
Disc 2 (Disco-Atmosphere)
Disc 3 (Tribute To Five Inmortals)
Disc 4 (Musical Mosaic)
Disc 5 ( Flashes From The 70's)
Disc 6 (Mexican Fiesta)
Disc 7 (All Time Favorites)

Urdi what???

rapidshare

This album has a weird mix of styles, it has dixieland, it has bossa, one tango, some mariachi and Tijuana Taxi...but as weird as it may look, it actually sounds very well, as all the band members are skillful musicians, each plays at least four instruments, (that's what the liner notes says) and the banjo sounds great!!.

Here's an excerpt from the Liner Notes:

"This album takes the listener to the original period of this music, the atmosphere created by this recordings is powerful enough to infect happiness even to the most indifferent person.
In addition, it has the quality of creating a collective joy from the very first beats of the 12 selections included here.
This Orchestra Show made it's debut on June 13th, 1963, in the "Belvedere" lounge of the Hilton Hotel in Mexico City, where they had a contract for a couple of weeks but due to their success they managed to have daily shows for 5 straight years."

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01- Marcha Dixie-Politecnico "Leven Anclas"
02- Meditacion (Meditation)
03- No Es Ella Dulce? (Ain't She Sweet?)
04- La Comparsita
05- Mira Que Pasa
06- Jesusita En Chihuahua
Side B:
07- Muneca De Satin (Satin Doll)
08 -Hello Dolly
09 -Carinoso
10- Zorba El Griego (Zorba The Greek)
11- Incertidumbre
12- Tijuana Taxi

This is the first LP from the Command Quadraphonic Series, it was recorded as a demo (Persuasive Percussion Quad Demo Album), so people could try their brand new (and expensive) quadraphonic systems (left front, right front, left back & right back channels), remember that this stuff was pre-5, 6 and 7.1 systems we all know, so having 4 speakers was actually a very cool thing back in the good ol' days (well, I suppose).


And Here's The Track List:

Side A
01- I'm In The Mood For Love
02- Whatever Lola Wants
03- Misirlou
04- I Surrender Dear
05- Orchids In The Moonlight
06- I Love Paris

Burburock

rapidshare

This is another album from the Odisea Burbujas Show, though this time Esquivel does not take part in it, so this is for Burbujas fans only....it contains a very catchy song called "Donde Estan Los Asteroides?", (Where Are The Asteroids?), which was a major influence (at least for me) in learning the correct order of the planets, so if you knew the song and had a test in school asking you to name the planets...you just had to sing the song and voila...next question....

But now the song is outdated thanks to those damn scientists because they decided Pluto is not a planet anymore :(
And now I'm not sure if I could pass that test again, because I can't get that song out of my head!!!!

This album follows the same formula as the other Burbujas albums, each character has it's own song, backed by the voices of Los Hermanos Zavala.

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01- Burbu-Rock
02- El Tarolas
03- Ejercicios
04- Burbujilizando
05- La Cucaracha De Las Patas Chuecas
SideB:
06- Agarra Tu Patin
07- Mi Vecino El Reloj
08- Donde Estan los Asteroides?
09- Chipi-Dipi-Frapis-Tipi
10- Calcetotas Amarillas

No senoorr, el sr. mexicant is not dead (yet), it's just that he's been so drunk lately, he spends the whole day now in the cantina with the mariachis, he was getting bored with tequila, and wanted something new, so he tried some of the green stuff that the guy is holding, but found out is just green colored water, so now he's going for the cerveza....so cheers everybody!!

As usual, I bought this album just because of the cover, but the music turned out to be very good, and I don't have any info on who Don Nauro & His Caribbean Bar Sextett is or was, the only info I found is that he's from Venezuela.
