The latin fringe

S4S8Aq4

Las Potranquitas del Norte  Caliente Records (Columbia)  (1973) .  This is music from northern Mexico called, Norteno.   Norteno music revolves around the accordion, drums and the Baja Sexto (a big acoustic bass guitar) to produce a polka like sound.  Las Potranquitas add the electric guitar and bass.  Their music follows the traditional Notreno polka blueprint, but there are flashes of bubblegum pop and garage rock that poke through all the Oom-pah!.  Listen HERE.

I got chills

Bob Wood Plays it Cool   MRC Records  (that’s MAJOR Recording Company folks)   Even Carl Perkins gives Bob props in the liner notes:  “If kindness, concern for fellowman, loyalty to wife and family have anything to do with the making of a man, then my friends, meet a man, Bob Wood.  Besides being a friend, I regard Bob as one of the very few great stylists on guitar.  Talents are essential n the music business, being a man is helpful in any field.  Combined you don’t miss.  Now enjoy with me, an album by just such a person, my friend, Bob Wood.”   How cool is that!   …. Wait, “being a man is helpful in any field?” …
