Lo Mejor de La Sonora del Caribe
Delujo 1962 ?

La Sonora del Caribe, front

Not long ago we had an lp by Alfredo Gutierrez on which
Lucho Argain ( Lucho Perez ) was performing. Another group
that Lucho used to sing and compose for is this one. La Sonora
del Caribe was founded in 1951 by Chavistad Cesar Pompeyo.
They had a string of records through the sixties and seventies,
the one we have here is probably from 1962 and contains 12
songs of which the brothers Cesar and Alfredo Pompeyo
said; “We never sounded like this before, the songs on
this lp can set any of our fans on fire on any moment
of the day..” Well, let’s see what happens,
get it & spread it as usual..


1 Noche de estrellas
2 Gaita colombiana
3 El gallo canaguey
4 Gregorio el bembon
5 La loteria
6 Barranquillerita
7 El pajaro picon
8 Llambae
9 Eco de tambo
10 Que te pasa

    Was hoping to download this album after reading, “We never sounded like this before, the songs on this lp can set any of our fans on fire on any moment
    of the day..”, hope you can fix, and a Very Big Thanks for sharing your amazing collection.

    Dear Moos the Magnificent
    Sorry to be a bother – but I’m getting “file not found” on this one.
    Is there a fix.

    Hi Moos – you really are a top bloke. I’ve been looking for this LP for years – I had a couple of tracks I really loved on an old cassette tape. Great stuff and thanks again!

    Great stuff. I heard Noche de Estrellas on that killer “Cumbia Cumbia 2: La Epoca Dorada De Cumbias Colombianas” comp about two decades ago (which in humble opinion is still the greatest cumbia comp ever released outside of Colombia, and one of the greatest CD’s I’ve ever heard), and have been looking for more from La Sonora del Caribe ever since. THANK YOU!!
