On Fire

G. Race – On Fire (Vocal Version)

Trying to organize records in sizes, genres and alphabets. Sure it’s important to be organized, but it takes time, cause I get easily distracted by wow-moments with records I haven’t touched in years. Looking forward to play this cult classic at my favourite places.

Borriquito

charo

Charo – Porriquito

The classic of the month by the legendary Charo. Sixteen years after being born as María del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza in Murcia in Spain, the girl started learning to play flamenco guitar at a prestigious music academy Madrid.  Her first actual claim to fame was to get married in 1966 at the age of 20 to famous latin bandleader Xavier Cugat, then aged 66. The couple then moved to America where Charo became a hit on the talk show circuit, thanks to her bubbly personality and her bizarre pronunciation of the English language.

In 1976 Charo recorded her first disco single La Salsa (see separate post). The big breakthrough arrived a year later with the Vince Montana-produced album Cuchi-Cuchi which included this fab version of the 1971 holiday hit Porriquito, originally sung by Peret. The Diva is still alive.

Unfinished Journey @ 33

Sheets in the ForestBiddu Orchestra – Unfinished Journey @ 33

A few days ago I spotted a leaking hydraulic pipe in my car. Naturally my first reaction was that all things come to an end and my beloved magic carpet would be dead forever. Thankfully cigarettes, alcohol and happy people encouraged me to fix it. It was sort of fun to wallow in LHM-fluids under the car in order to attach a replacement pipe to the system. Now the road is open again! So, where next? Maybe to spot some castle ruins or abandoned buildings in the forest. As much as I love road tripping, I’d really really love to try cycling again (a motivation deprivation after all those years with bad knees and still bad knees). Everything is such addictive fun with bicycles. For example as a child I remember riding through the sheets. Unfortunately there’s no picture to prove it, but it did happen… maybe once, until it was forbidden as about anything that was fun. That’s why you have to settle for a still from Vera Chytilovás Ovoce stromu rajských jíme (Fruit of Paradise). Soundscape from a classic Biddu 45 played at wrong speed.

L’Orange Bleue

laverdajota1000John Ozila – L’Orange Bleue

Too obvious? It sure kicks like a triple espresso! Pointless remarks on Laverda Jotas: They look cooler on blue backgrounds and stripped nude for the café races.

Body Music

disco dancing 70sKen Elliot – Body Music

Great to hear that you’re feeling love sir. Just a simple reminder: Respect the limits. No obnoxious staring or unwanted touching. Avoiding classics is a must in order to survive, but sometimes an anthemic 12″ might be excused. Recorded here at -8. Still too fast?

Cool It

cool itYsanne Carniss – Cool It

If you wish to impress your partner with your ZL-1 big block, remember to cool it for optimal performance. Ysanne got everything right with Cool It, except it could have been longer. There’s a skillfully extended edit available, but I’m doomed to play the short version – ’cause one must only play the original vinyls in order to impress…

Nirvana

2998709786987697The Biddu Orchestra – Nirvana

Recent studies in experimental psychology indicate that exposing your aural senses to Biddu’s Nirvana can help you to slow your brain waves to reach the Theta state. Those who have slowed the record about 4% on their turntables have reached the desired state of mind much sooner than those listening at the original speed.

Meteor Man

The Hiltonaires – Meteon Man

You know the concept vol. 2: Take a cheap looking compilation album from the late 70s with very little info about anything. You might find a surprisingly fresh version of a classic. The great original was featured on the blog earlier. This one comes from an album: Hits For The Young People 18. Released in Germany, year unknown.
