Pepe Guizar - Geografia Musical de Mexico

This is a great album that I highly recommend to anyone as it complies music of the many different regional styles that are found throughout Mexico, everything from the marimba of southern Mexico to ranchera and corridos from northern Mexico. The music on this album also mainly has lyrics which are focused on describing how a particular state or city are unique and beautiful. Most of the music here is by Pepe Guizar however there are a few songs by other artists. Really recommend this one to anybody as it is a great album really worth giving a listen to.

Aquí les dejo un álbum muy bueno que trae música de todos los diferentes estilos que se encuentran en México. La mayoría de las canciones son cantadas por Pepe Guizar pero hay unas cuantas que son cantadas por otros artistas. Les recomiendo mucho este álbum ya que las canciones que trae son verdaderamente muy buenas!

Nigeria Special (3) Sir Victor Uwaifo - Guitar Boy Superstar

Victor Uwaifo is in my opinion the best guitarist to come out of the Nigerian music scene and could also rival any of the more well known guitarists of the Western World. Guitar Boy Superstar compiles some of his greatest hits though ironically the song Guitar Boy which is one of my favorites was left off you can find it on Youtube though.
If you play electric guitar or are a fan of any type of music that revolves around this instrument I highly recommend this album! A personal favorite on here is West African Safari which almost does make you feel like you're in a Range Rover going through the West African desert.

Woody Guthrie - Asch Recordings Vol 1-4

Woody Guthrie is arguably one of the most important folk musicians to come out of the US. Woody Guthrie is famous for his often humor filled songs but also for his highly politically and socially influenced songs where he made comments about things like the Great Depression, mistreatment of workers in the US, and rise of fascism in Europe. At a time when the US was filled with racism and paranoia Woody was one of the few who was not afraid to openly support rights for African Americans and for immigrants. If you like any sort of folk music from the US or are interested in listening to the artist that influenced other great musicians like Joe Strummer and Bob Dylan then I highly recommend you give Woody Guthrie a listen.

Andres Landero - Con Ritmo Tambores y Velas

 All the way from Colombia this is Andres Landero "El rey de la cumbia". Cumbia is a style of music which originated in Colombia and can now be heard throughout most of Latin America. Cumbia has its origins when the slave trade brought people from West Africa to the areas of what is now Colombia and Panama and thus their music styles mixed with those of the Spanish and the people of the new world. I really recommend this to anyone who likes any sort of Latin or tropical music as this is the type of music that will make you want to get up and dance.

The Standells - The Hot Ones

The Standells are a garage rock band from 1960's California, the first Standells song I ever heard was the cover of Good Guys Don't Wear White done by punk band Minor Threat. The Standells own style is very much almost like a mix of 60's rock and roll with what would later become known as punk rock in the 1970's. They were known by some people as "The Beatles of North America". The album that I am sharing here is one that compiles somewhat rare Standells covers of songs done by other artists such as The Beatles, The Monkees, Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs, etc. and is definitely worth downloading and giving a listen to.

1. Last Train To Clarksville
2. Wild Thing

Cantos Ferrocarrileros

 This an album that was originally only given to workers on Mexico's national railways known as FNM (Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Mexico) sometime around the late 1980's early 1990's I believe. The album features songs of many different styles of Mexican music everything from bolero to ranchera and corridos all sharing the similarity of having to do something with the railroad. The majority of the songs (except for El Trenecito - Los Hermanos Rincon and La Rielera- Lucha Moreno) are performed by Oscar Chavez.
This is a great album for anyone who enjoys the music of Mexico and also for people to listen to what was once the great national railroads of Mexico which sadly due to corrupt governments no longer exist.

But also really recommend it to anyone that just wants to have a lot of great tunes compiled into one album.

The 101'ers - Smokey Joe's Cafe

I've been a fan of Joe Strummer and The Clash since I was about 13. For about the same length of time I've been a fan of his first band The 101'ers however until very recently did I come to find out that this album (Smokey Joe's Cafe) existed. For anyone who has heard Elgin Avenue Breakdown (101'ers first album) then you will already be familiar with the music style on here. However for those who have never heard this band before it is a great mix of classic rock and roll with rockabilly and really is just great music worth checking out.

Francoise Hardy - The Yeh Yeh Girl From Paris

By request here is another album of the magnificent Francoise Hardy. Yeh Yeh Girl From Paris features some of Francoise's early songs (which in my opinion are her best) and is really worth listening as they all have a very classic 60's pop sound with Francoise's great voice.

1. Tous Les Garcons Et Les Filles
2. Ca A Rate
3. La Fille Avec Toi
4. Oh Oh Cheri
5. Le Temps De L'amour
 6. Il Est Tout Pour Moi
7. On Se Plait

Tumbele! Biguine Afro & Latin Sounds From the French Carribean 1963-1974

Unlike the music from Jamaica and the English speaking Caribbean the music of the French Caribbean is for the most part unknown outside of the French speaking world. Tumbele presents music from the French speaking islands of Haiti and the islands Guadeloupe and Mountinique which if I am not mistaken to this day are still governed by Paris. The music on this album is a mixture of Congolese rumba, Hatian compas, and Cuban guguancos and biguine which all mixed together to form the unique style of Tumbele. This music is testament to the inmense multi-cultural past that this part of the world has had. Also I really recommend this album if you like any sort of music that features electric guitar as some of the songs on here have some of the coolest guitar riffs and solos that you will hear.

Nirvana (60's) - All Of Us

Unknown to many there was a band in 1960's UK named Nirvana way before, Kurt Cobain and his group came along and stole the name of the (in my opinion) much better 1960's group. Though Nirvana had a very unique rock style they only achieved limited commercial success and never became as famous as some other British bands to come out of the 60's, their music is still definitely worth checking out. And unlike the 90's US group of the same name which made depression and frustration and the such "cool" the original Nirvana tried to inspire a positive feeling and to look at all the good things in life. Which at least in my book already puts them miles ahead of the 90's group that most people have heard of.

Nigeria Special (2) Sonny Okosun

Sonny Okosun is arguably one of the most recognized and famous Nigerian artists after Fela Kuti. Much like with Fela, Okosun's music was heavily influenced by politics and the social issues going on in Africa at the time. One of his mos famous songs is Fire in Soweto which talks about the different struggles and conflicts happening in Africa at the time and how the common man was the one that kept being the most affected by these. He developed his own sound so much so that his music came to be simply known as Ozziddi. The sound quality is a bit rough on some of these songs but give them a listen as they are great and do a great job of showing the harsh realities that the African continent has and continues to face to this day.
1. Third World
2. Fire in Soweto
3. Tire Ni Oluwa

5. My Woman


Los Alegres de Teran - Revolucion Mexicana

The Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920 was an extremely important event in the country's history politically, socially, and also musically. During the war "corridos" (short songs about an important person or place or something like that) developed as a way to spread news of what was happening in the front. Songs were written detailing one general's great victory over another at a certain city and the song would spread as a way to communicate the news to people throughout the country. Here is a small sample of songs done by Los Alegres de Teran. All of these (except for Corrido del Norte) share one thing in common being that they were all written detailing the exploits of General Francisco (Pancho) Villa and his men such as General Felipe Angeles. These are definitely worth checking out as they do a great job of describing why many of these men are still seen as heroes to most Mexicans. 

1. Corrido Villista
2. El Siete Leguas
3. La Persecusion de Villa
4. La Tumba de Villa
5. El Corrido del Norte
6. Corrido de Felipe Angeles
7. El Mayor de Los Dorados

Los Alegres de Teran - Vol 1

Los Alegres de Teran were the ones responsible for making musica norteña (literally translated as northern music) popular throughout Mexico. The style of music has its roots when German and other European immigrants made their way to northern Mexico bringing with them the accordion and music styles like polka. This new music mixed with other styles that were already present in Mexico. Los Alegres de Teran made up of accordionist Eugenio Abrego and bajo sexto player Tomás Ortiz formed in the 1940's and introduced this style of music to the rest of the country, eventually recording over 100 LP's.
Here is a small sample of the songs they recorded, something definitely worth checking out for any fan of the genre or of Mexican music in general.
1. Alma Enamorada
2. Desilusion
3. Florita del Alma
4. Coranzoncito Tirano
5. Dos Favores
6. Tus Ojos
7. El Cuervo y El Escribano
8. En Avion Hasta Acapulco
9. Por Tu Culpa
10. Amor Que Se Aleja .
11. Flor del Rio
12. Besitos de Mujer
13. La Rubia y La Morena
14. Me Persigue Tu Sombra
15. Te Quiero Mas
16. Mis Brazos Te Esperan
17. Las Nubes


Nigeria Special (1) - Bongos Ikwue

Nigeria has been one of the African countries with the greatest music scenes, giving the world the heavily political artists Fela Kuti and Sonny Okosun not to mention genres like afrorock and afrofunk. Today I will focus on 70's Nigerian pop artist Bongos Ikwue who from what I have gathered (not being Nigerian but hearing what Nigerians have said to me) was extremely popular and famous. At one point even becoming part of a scandal after his song Mariama was supposedly said to be about the Nigerian first lady.

I am posting a compilation of songs of his that I have found online and gathered, the audio on some is a bit rough but this is still great music. As a side note to anyone who cares if you listen to Bongos music and that of other Nigerian artists as well you will hear what seems like an influence from the classic American country music sound which to me is kind of interesting.
Hope you enjoy the music!

1.Never Never Say Never Again
2. Tear Drops
3. I've Found a Woman
4. Still Searching
5. Sitting On The Beach
6. Love My Girl
7. Mariama

Francoise Hardy - All Over The World

This album features the magnificent French ye-ye artist Francoise Hardy singing in English, German, Italian, and though not on the original album I added two of her Spanish songs to this download. Francoise Hardy is without a doubt an icon of the 1960's and will always be remembered for her simple yet extremely attractive style and her soft gentle voice. Which be it in her native French or other language is always very seductive and soothing.
If you are not familiar with her or her style of music give it a chance and I promise you will not be disappointed!

Black Star LIner Reggae From Africa

Black Star Liner is a great album for anyone out there who has even a remote interest in reggae or also for the people out there who are more than experts on the genre. This album gives you a great introduction into some of the best groups to come out of 1970's Africa. Nigeria's Bongos Ikuwe, Sonny Okosun, Sir Victor Uwaifo and Cloud 7 or Sierra Leone's Sabanoh 75 are some worth mentioning. But really all the songs and artists on this album are great and I highly recommend it to anyone with any sort of interest in reggae or rock music.

Sonny Okosun - Third World

Sabanoh 75 - Carry On

Cloud 7 - You Can Make It

Bongos Ikwue & The Groovies - Still Searching

Sabanoh 75 - Leaking Heart

Victor Uwaifo & His Titibitis - Destiny

Miatta Fahnbulleh - Kokolioko

Sonny Okosun - Fire In Soweto
