Celia Cruz y la Sonora Matancera
sus Exitos del Millon, CBS 1986

Celia Cruz, front

She is so famous that one tends to think the whole world
already has her music, but that isn’t the case off course.
Another lp my friend brought home from Cuba lately and
it’s one I didn’t have. I promised to post them so here is
the third he contributed. With Celia and la Sonora
Matancera you can’t go wrong, always top
quality latin music of which you can find
one other album on this blog, enjoy..
p.s. it makes me remember I saw
her in Utrecht Vredenburg,
january 1986 with Tito
Puente, check video..

  1. Hello Moos!
    This is your blog and not merely a blackboard allowing everybody to leave messages; I therefore ask you to get your allowance.
    Last year I was searching for something and stumbled over a blog called Rho-Xs,
    posting african records too. Later I learnt that posting this african records were a project which started in 2013 and ended recently. Of course I tried to download but recognized many of the links were gone already.
    Some days ago, Rho-Xs informed that he’ll start re-ups and today the first african record became re-posted, it is called: “Dark City Sisters & Flying Jazz Queens”. The tracks were recorded somewhen in the 60s, the CD is from 1993.
    (By John Storm Roberts: Classics from the era when female lead singers were the glory of South African music.
    From the mid-’50s to the mid-’60s, the Dark City Sisters (who launched Mahlathini, heard on three cuts here) were outsung only by the Flying Jazz Queens. Many have demanded reissues of their material for years, so though two Jazz Queens cuts are ten too few on this far-too-short CD, you’ll be in jive heaven.)

    Do you allow leaving links of (African) records to enable other entghusiasts to get their copy?

    Greetings / Thomas

    • Hello Thomas,
      You are not the first to leave a link to a related album on another blog or so.
      Your comment needs approval anyway so I let through what’s relevant and block
      what is not or what I do not trust. A link to any work of the Dark City Sisters
      will pass eyes closed. I’m thrilled to get them, that’s for sure, so YES, please do..
      thank you Thomas

  2. Two of those African CDs in the link are clearly Earthworks releases, not long-unavailable lps which lind of goes against the spirit of your excellent blog. Keep your eyes closed if you want but it’s still bad web behaviour!

  3. Hello Moos, Hello David!

    I’ve read the comment (complain). Infact the links led to CDs
    and not vinyl and I understand that Moos deleted these.
    However I’ve to ask, why the complain was made because of
    the Earthworks releases, which are comparatively old (20years)
    and available as used discs only, while mentioned compilations
    are much less of age and still available.

    Greetings / Thomas
