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

Colacho Mendoza, front

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..

    I&#39;d like to think that I can be of any help to this great site that shines above all. Thank you so much.<br /><br />&quot;Every single day in music, particularly in Colombian music, is a special day for us. At the end of this year we&#39;ll be celebrating our 5 years as music producers, first for Manufacturas Ajover and the last 2 years for Discos Orbe Ltda. We were always hesitant of putting
