Various Artists - Soundway Records Presents Colombia! The Golden Age Of Discos Fuentes: The Powerhouse Of Colombian Mu cover artwork

Since 1934, Disco Fuentes (Fuentes Records) has acted as the largest record label in Colombia, a country where it is impossible to escape music. This collection of tracks delves into  the golden years of 1960-76 and is hand picked from  the enormous Fuentes record catalogue comprising various tropical music styles. Cumbia, Gaita, Fandango, Salsa and Champeta all feature in the selection from one of the worlds best Latin music archives.
“Blistering tracks that draw you deep into the jungle with their percussive mayhem […] this is a scene to explore, and this album’s 28-page booklet of liner notes will provide plenty to ponder after your party”

Sharon Jones $ The Daptones "I Learned the Hard Way"

AVAILABLE NOW! (CD/LP/.mp3) GET IT!
Produced by Bosco Mann and recorded on an Ampex eight-track tape machine by Gabriel Roth in Daptone Records’ House of Soul studios, this record drips with a warmth and spontaneity rarely found since the golden days of Muscle Shoals and Stax. Sharon’s raw power, rhythmic swagger, moaning soulfulness, and melodic command set her firmly alongside Tina Turner, James Brown, Mavis Staples, and Aretha as a fixture in the canon of soul music. From the lushPhilly-Soul fanfare that ushers in “The Game Gets Old” at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style“Mama Don’t Like My Man” at the tail, the Dap-Kings dance seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. I Learned the Hard Way is the “Daptone Sound” at its finest.
