Various - Gozalo Vol 3 - Bugalu Tropical



Gozalo Vol 3
Various - Gózalo! Vol.3 - Bugalu Tropical
(2xCD/2xLP 1000 copies limited ed.) Vampisoul VAMPI113CD/VAMPI113, 2009-09-07

Vampisoul presents the third volume in their series of tropical Peruvian music of the 1960s! Compiler Like the previous two volumes, this album captures a little known but dynamic moment in Peru's musical development that allowed the consolidation of new trends oriented towards what would become known by the early 70s as salsa, as well as forging a vibrant scene that incorporated cumbia, latin soul, rock, and jazz funk. Rafael Hurtado de Mendoza brings you a new volume of this exciting, spicy mix of tropical gems that fill in the missing link between the mambo era and the dawn of salsa in South America.

Press Release :
Vampisoul presents the third volume in our series of tropical Peruvian music of the 1960s. It was labels like MAG, IEMPSA, DINSA and SONO RADIO that captured this emerging sound.

Like the previous two volumes, this album captures a little known but dynamic moment in Peru's musical development that allowed the consolidation of new trends oriented towards what would become known by the early 70s as salsa, as well as forging a vibrant scene that incorporated cumbia, latin soul, rock, and jazz funk.

Compiler Rafael Hurtado de Mendoza brings you a new volume of this exciting, spicy mix of tropical gems that fill in the missing link between the mambo era and the dawn of salsa in South America. Mario Allison, Alfredo Linares, Nilo Espinosa, Silvestre Montes, Tito Chicoma, Charlie Palomares, Ñico Estrada and Willie Marambio may not be well known names in "el Norte" yet, but the tasty tunes they cut over 30 years ago are a rare treat for the Latin music enthusiast, and they will finally come into the spotlight thanks to this compilation.

Coco Lagos and Melcochita may be the only names that people will recognize, but Los Girasoles (with their guitar-heavy break-neck speed rock/cumbia) and Lucho Macedo (arguably the first Peruvian tropical superstar), will become household names before long.

In addition to giving you a whole new selection of fabulous cuts, the sound quality is great, as usual. Remastered from original tapes for the maximum listening pleasure. ¡Gózalo! Enjoy it!

- Volume 3 of this successful series, described as "A fabulous collection and a real revelation. Top of The World Album, 5/5" SONGLINES (UK)
- Another great selection of tracks from a little known but essential period in the development of Latin music.
- A terrific, dance-inducing mix of genres across 28 tracks: mambo, salsa, son, guaracha, Latin soul, cumbia, boogaloo.
- Sleeve notes in English and Spanish by expert Agustín Pérez Aldave
