Options November 10, 2005: Autumn's bounty: post-record fair reckoning

Listen to this show:

(* = new)

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments New Approx. start time
Los Iracundos  Muchacho Siglo XX   Options Los Iracundos  RCA  1967  Vinyl  Los Iracundos (The Wrathful Ones) were one of the biggest rocanrol acts in Latin America, and certainly the most prolific, cutting over forty LPs over the course of their career. This is from their fourth, self-titled album, cut in '67. The arrangements were obviously inspired by the early Bee Gees, and in fact, they do a pretty nice cover of "Got to Get a Message to You." A sweet record fair find.    0:00:00 ()

Los Pasteles Verdes  Hipocresia   Options Hipocresia  Orfeon  1978  LP  Album no. 2 from Peru's Pasteles Verdes. This song is typical of their style -- tight, reverb-drenched "rock" ballads -- though they also made some credible forays into disco and soul around this same time. The band was very popular throughout Latin America and L.A., but their greatest succes was in Mexico, where they relocated in '77 and were signed to the major label Orfeon. The band later became Los Angeles Negros.    0:24:24 ()

Eduardo Davidson  Dejame saber   Options Le Frisson  Pop Art  1967  LP  Another jaw-dropping record fair find. I'll post the cover here soon -- it must be seen to be believed. Davidson wrote screenplays for Cuban radio in the forties and early fifties before finding popularity as a dancer, singer and composer of dance music. Some credit him with inventing the "pachanga" dance rhythm, which became very popular with New York's Dominican community. He left Cuba in '62 and came to NYC, where he took a stab at sparking another dance trend with "Le Frisson," a concept record of sorts in which the concept is -- guess what? -- a dance step called "Le Frisson," or "the shiver." The record is outrageous. Backed by a hot Latin / rhythm and blues band and a choir, Davidson seemingly gets drunker and campier as the album progresses. Davidson was not the first openly queer singer in Latin American pop (see Bola de Nieve, for example), but he is arguably the most audacious, especially for his time. The record is one long, lascivious come-on. The music is always ever-so-slightly off-center in a "Corky's Debt to His Father" kind of way. Just listen to the backing vocals on this song! In the right state of mind, this almost sounds like a low-rent, tropical Sun Ra Arkestra. No joke.    1:49:30 ()
