Palmeira

Palmeira

    Can you imagine a Dutch band playing top-notch 60s-70s sounding Brazilian music?

    Originally released as a private pressing in 1983, Palmeira’s only album will please any lover of bossa, jazzy and latin-fusion sounds.

    Beautiful femme vocals, superb musicianship featuring the awesome lead electric guitar of Jeanette van der Pligt, self-penned songs and choice covers of Caetano Veloso, João Gilberto and Rita Lee among others.

    Palmeira was a Brazilian styled band formed by Angelo Noce Santoro (ex-Cosmic Dealer) along with some Dutch, North American and Brazilian musicians. The group existed from 1979 till 1985, playing lots of gigs at jazz and night clubs in Holland. In 1983 they released their only album in a private edition of 500 copies on Angelo’s ANS label. A cult item for fans of Bossa-Jazz, it was first reissued as a limited edition in Japan, now long out of print. 

    A wild, esoteric mix of psychedelic funk, afro-latin grooves, Jazz and Italian French styled library sounds courtesy of Cuasares, an enigmatic studio project created by the multi-talented pianist arranger visionary Waldo Belloso. It has a vivid range of acid fuzz guitar, cosmic synth splashes, distorted organ, flute, vibraphone, trippy studio effects... which is what gives this eclectic album it’s bold and fearless attitude. Originally released in Argentine in 1973 as a micro-edition, this is the first ever reissue. It includes insert with photos and detailed liner notes by Eduardo A. Elizalde Pietruczyk (a.k.a. Bubbling Minds) and Mike Wallace.

    Tani: Disco Rumba & Flamenco Boogie, 1976 €

      The Disco Music, Philadelphia Sound and Salsoul fever were also present in the Rumba-Pop and Flamenco-Funk scene of Spain in the late ‘70s / early ‘80s. Producers, sound engineers and studio musicians collaborated closely with flamenco / rumba singers and bands. Among others, we got to highlight the production / studio work that genius Josep Llobell did for the Belter label in Barcelona. Here you got 12 disco-rumba-flamenco-boogie bombs, a time machine to the Spanish boites and discotheques of the late 70s and the perfect soundtrack to an imaginary “Kinki” cinema soundtrack.

      The apparition of Spanish female duo Las Grecas with their Gipsy-Rock sound in the 70s created quite a boom in the Spanish market at the time and paved the way for other similar gipsy-rock duos. Morena y Clara were one of them. Launched by bizarre flamenco producer Lauren Postigo, they released a string of 45s and three LPs (highly sought after now) for the Discophon label. They mixed Rumba, Flamenco, Psychedelic Rock, Funk and Disco Music featuring an amazing production (heavy drums, fuzz-wah-phaser electric guitars, Moog, Hammond) over the wild flamenco female vocals of the duo. Here’s a compilation spanning 1974-1978, featuring their psychotronic hits like “No llores más”, “Dejé de quererte”, “Buscando alegría” and more. Insert with liner notes by Txarly Brown (Achilifunk) and photos.

      Dolores Vargas

      La Terremoto - Anana Funk Hip 1970-75

      “Dolores Vargas was our wildest performer, our Spanish Tina Turner, Ikettes-era. In my opinion, she was a better dancer and singer than Lola Flores but she never received the same media attention than the famous Lola. Maybe it’s better this way. Dolores Vargas is wine for sommeliers and since now, music for connoisseurs.”– Txarly Brown

      Here’s an anthology dedicated to the ‘70s period of Dolores Vargas, known as “The Earthquake” due to her wild and frenzied dancing style. In these songs, released 1970-1975 for the Belter label from Barcelona, you’ll hear a killer sound and production mixing Funk, Rock and Pop with the powerful vocal style of “The Earthquake”. Including real gipsy-funk bombs like “A la pelota” “Anana Hip” or “La Hawaiana” along with her bizarre cover version of “Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep” and much more.
      If you’re looking from Flamenco Funk and groovy Rumba Pop, look no further.

      Gypsy rumba-funk & flamenco pop courtesy of TRIGAL, the grooviest & funkiest band from the Spanish ‘70s rumba scene. 13 tracks taken from their sought after LPs and 45s, originally released on the legendary Belter label, 1976-77.

      Heavy drums, breaks, percussion, deep bass, wah wah, electric guitar, horns, funk / blaxpoitation touches, gypsy female vocals…

      *Master tape sound.

      An otherworldly mix of cosmic disco, funk, boogie and traditional flamenco styles by Spanish 'cantaor' El Turronero!! Featuring the legendary Josep Llobell (Oliver’s Planet, Enterprise etc) at the controls.

      "New Hondo" was originally released in 1980 on the Spanish Belter label and in a similar way to Camarón’s "La leyenda del tiempo", it was an adventurous project where the producers tried to modernize traditional flamenco music. Featuring an amazing studio production (analogue keyboards, synths, disco drums & orchestrations, electric sitar), it includes the cosmic disco classic "Las Penas", the psychedelic funk of "Si yo volviera a nacer" and more.

      Remastered sound from the master tapes, insert with photos and liner notes by Txarly Brown (Achilifunk).

      'A flamenco singer with pedigree like El Turronero lost in Studio 54 on a hangover day' - Txarly Brown (Achilifunk).
