El Michi y su Combo Bravo – El Taconazo
Zeida / Codiscos 1983

Michi Sarmiento, front

I was in the mood for some salsa and after checking a
couple of lp’s from the top of the pile, Michi Sarmiento
came out as today’s winner. Forget about the album’s
awful cover and turn straight to the music, it does not
compare. Michi’s sound was one of the most popular in
Colombia and this slice of salsa brava from 1983 does
not make an exception. Vocals by Felipe Sembergman
on tracks; 1,4,7 and 9, Hernando Perez on tracks; 2,5,
8 an 10, Michi Sarmiento on tracks; 3 and 6.
Get it & spread it as usual..

    That cover is not awful, mi amigo. Me gusta mucho. To each his own. Thanks for the recent African Brothers albums; I thought that well had run dry but there were several great tunes to be had there.

    Although the “girlie” covers on so many Colombian records are a bit cheesy, I like the way they speak of an older age when values were different, though not better.
    Thanks for the new details of the site costs. In some ways GG is so cheap to run, although I appreciate that it has to come from your pocket! I’ve made a small donation – really we could easily keep you going with just a small gift from each of us…
    Keep up the very good work Moos!
