Odisea Burbujas - Burburock - 1982

This is another album from the Odisea Burbujas Show, though this time Esquivel does not take part in it, so this is for Burbujas fans contains a very catchy song called "Donde Estan Los Asteroides?", (Where Are The Asteroids?), which was a major influence (at least for me) in learning the correct order of the planets, so if you knew the song and had a test in school asking you to name the just had to sing the song and question....

But now the song is outdated thanks to those damn scientists because they decided Pluto is not a planet anymore :(
And now I'm not sure if I could pass that test again, because I can't get that song out of my head!!!!

This album follows the same formula as the other Burbujas albums, each character has it's own song, backed by the voices of Los Hermanos Zavala.

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01- Burbu-Rock
02- El Tarolas
03- Ejercicios
04- Burbujilizando
05- La Cucaracha De Las Patas Chuecas
06- Agarra Tu Patin
07- Mi Vecino El Reloj
08- Donde Estan los Asteroides?
09- Chipi-Dipi-Frapis-Tipi
10- Calcetotas Amarillas

Luz Y Fuerza - We Can Fly - 1971

We Can Fly


By the end of the 60's, everybody was growing tired of bands singing just covers, musicians wanted to play original music but still written and sung in english, so a new movement was born: La Onda Chicana (The Chicano Movement). The bands wrote and sung in english but merging elements from mexican and latin american cultures.

By that time bands like Blood, Sweat & Tears, and Chicago were very popular, so they had a strong influence here, as some bands had a very rhythmic brass section and some heavy guitars.

Here's Luz y Fuerza with the LP called We Can Fly from 1971, I can't find any info on the net and it doesn't have any liner notes...but the music is just great!!!

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01- We Can Fly
02- Someday
03- Everybody Needs A Brother
04- You
05- When I Ever Get Home
Side B:
06- Let Me Tell You
07- Kiss Me Once (Like You Did Before)
08- Rainbows And Apple Trees
09- Just How I Feel
10- Midnight

Los Locos Del Ritmo - Polvora - 1971

Los Locos


Los Locos Del Ritmo started back in 1958 under the name of "Pepe Y Sus Locos" (Pepe And His Crazy Boys) and participated in an Amateur Contest called "La Hora Internacional Del Aficionado" (The International Amateur Hour), winning the first place and a trip to the Original Amateur Hour Show, hosted by Ted Mack and won the second place.

Back in Mexico they changed their names to Los Locos Del Ritmo and recorded their first album between Dec. 1958 and Jan. 1959, but it was canned until 1960, because nobody was sure if Rock And Roll would be accepted (and could sell). The album became an immediate success and they went to record their (self titled) second album in 1961.

This is a 1971 reissue of their second album, and it rocks!!! listen to Estroncio 90, an excellent instrumental rocker.

And Here's The Track List:

Side A:
01- Polvora
02- Avientense Todos
03- Estroncio 90
04- Que Voy A Hacer?
05- Cuatro Ases De Amor
Side B:
06- Haciendote El Amor
07- La Chica Mas Linda Del Mundo
08- Vengan Todos A Bailar
09- Ten Mi Corazon
10- Chica Alborotada

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