Discotheque: Orfeon A Go-Go - 196?


Orfeon A Go Go was a mexican TV show sponsored by the Orfeon Record Label, in order to showcase their artists and promote Rock 'N' Roll music amongst mexican teenagers.
As I said in the previous post, Mexican Bands played mostly covers of English and American songs (with a few exceptions), so you will recognize the majority of the songs here.
And again there's more overdubbed cheers and whistles for your listening pleasure!!!

Track 12: Jamaica Ska is a real gem as Tono Quirazco was one of the first guys to introduce ska to Mexico (playing only cover versions), though he wasn't a major influence at the time.

Fiesta Hippie- La Fresa Acida-EL Klan-1969

Back in the hippie days, mexican "rock" music was just beggining to take shape, due to the big influence that our neighbors from the north has had on our own culture, so it was just a natural thing for mexican bands to play the popular songs at the time (American or English). There were bands who covered every song imaginable, playing the same rhythm but adapting the lyrics into spanish, or sometimes singing them in english (not a very good idea in my opinion, as not everybody could speak fluent english), resulting in some very weird sounding albums, like this one...

Introducing Fiesta Hippie (Hippie Party), 10 of the 13 songs here are played by "La Fresa Acida" (The sour strawberry), and 2 by "El Klan", and on the front cover you can see some of the stereotypes of being "hippie": everybody was making out or smoking weed... (ahhhh those good old times!!!)

This is supposed to be a live album, but if you listen carefully you can hear the same cheers and whistles all over and over again, so I just think it's overdubbed, anyway the music on this album does sound interesting...

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01- La Fiesta Hippie (The Beat Goes On)
02- La Ruleta De La Vida (Spinning Wheel)
03- Prendado De Un Sentimiento (Hooked On A Feeling)
04- Dame Un Amorcito (Bring A Little Lovin')
05- La Reina De Mi Amor (The Queen Of My Love)
06- Herido (I've Been Hurt)
Side B:
07- In A Gada Da Vida
08- Orgullosa Maria (Proud Mary)
09- Una Palida Sombra (A Whiter Shade Of Pale)
10- Regresa (Get Back)
11- Confesiones De Medianoche (Midnight Confessions)
12- Azucar, Azucar (Sugar, Sugar)
13- La Fiesta Hippie (Outro)

Please Enjoy!! and remember to play this record only on Stereophonic Equipment!
