Marcadores: Compilations , Radio. Thursday, 24 January Wednesday, 23 January Modern Soul: Ms. Gwen Guthrie's Portrait King, and Roberta Flack. Brauer Synthesizer — Wally Badarou. The most embarrassing moment is a bubble-gum funk cover of Sly Stone's "Family Affair," which loses all the original's power. Guests include Bernie Worrell and Jimmy Maeulin. From WARR. The sound is much more New York than Jamaica — and that's probably due to some great instrumental backing on keyboards by the likes of Harry Whitaker, Bernie Worrell, and Wally Badarou — all massive talents that bring a nice sweet jazzy sound to the best cuts on the record.
There's a definite 80s sing-song groove going on — in that not-yet-top-of-the-charts soul sound that you'd hear on the better small urban stations at the time — moving back and forth nicely, in a strong link between the mainstream and the underground clubs!
In school, she studied classical music, and her father began teaching her piano when she was eight years old. By the early s, she had joined vocal groups such as the Ebonettes and the Matchmakers, meanwhile working as an elementary school teacher.
When a backup singer scheduled to sing on Aretha Franklin's single "I'm in Love" fell ill, Guthrie took the vocalist's place beside Cissy Houston; thus Guthrie would happily state that her career on record began "at the top". As Guthrie's solo career developed, she worked extensively with Sly and Robbie on dub-influenced club cuts, and began racking up dance hits. She was dubbed "The First Lady of the Paradise Garage" as several of her songs became anthems at the venue, helped by the frequent and dynamic performances she gave there.
A literal reading suggests a man only require the finances to make a relationship work. However, Guthrie's lyrics intend to motivate her partner into being responsible for maintaining equality and financial stability. Guthrie was an ally to the gay community, and to people with AIDS long before the masses caught up. Guthrie died of uterine cancer on February 3, , at the age of 48, and was interred in Fairmount Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey.

Tuesday, 22 January Our definitive position about corporate advertising. In the United States and across the planet, there are myriad signs of a growing revolt against the advertising industry.
Polls show rising resentment of the industry and its aggressive tactics. The placement of ads on pro baseball uniforms and batting helmets drew a spate of negative news coverage this month, a letter from a U.
Advertisers are being expelled from schools in droves. Channel One, the in-school advertising service, was removed last school year from Nashville, and will soon be kicked out of Seattle. New restrictions on the marketing or sale of soda or junk food in school have been approved in places such as California, Texas, New York City and Philadelphia. These are just a few flashpoints.
I could list many more. The point is that the advertising industry is growing a formidable list of opponents. Occasionally some Brasilian things will be added that are hard to find, even on the other great Brasilian blogs, many that are listed in my Blog links. And maybe some things that have nothing to do with Cuban or Brasilian music.

Re "Red Hot" : Had a look around and can't see it anywhere now, lots of links to the one dead rapidshare file Can anyone in this thread who downloaded it please re-up? Thank Simon for your answer, what a piity, it's really dificult to find it :- i will keep to look for it; and i will follow your blog, maybe somebody will post this album soon, thanks!!!
I found Teresa, from the A la Carte album. New link for "Hey! Hi Xerxes, a belated thanks for your contribution of "Red Hot"! Now added to thread. He is really quite amazing. Thank you so much for all of your music contributions!! First, thank you for all that wonderfull work. I've got two Mongo Cassettes many years ago from a friend and let them run forth and back in my car for month back then. Since I've found this blog I'm again into this great and heart-warming music and only now I understand more and more also the background and way of M.
Unfortunately I missed the record 'Images'. All links are dead. Could one of you who downloaded it reup it again please? Would be realy wonderfull as it is also not in the catalogs of the sellers anymore. Best wishes, Sarasir. There is also a hi res scan of the cover. Just so you know : I always prefer to link to people's original posts instead of their rapidshare links.
That means that they get people thanking them for bothering to upload, so they think it's worthwhile and post more good stuff. Anyway thanks for tracking this down! Thanks a lot for Images. Anyways, would be wonderful if one of you could up it again. Listening to M.
And, be aware of the man behind Mongo, Marty Sheller. His arrangements are very hot and special. Without him Mongo's music would not be the same. Best Wishes. Yes, that's exactly the trap I was running in - read above! Mongomania of M. So it seems like that we have another one to hunt. The blog link shown in filestubes is dead so hurry. Actually that was someone else's tribute to Mongo called "Mongomania" And, got my hands on a Yambu LP release and made hi-res scans of the cover. Anybody interested?
And if, where is it best to up them? I would be interested in Yamba, try mediafire. Aha, never did that before - seems to work. Does anybody out there have Mongo's album "Explodes at the Village Gate" from and would be so kind to upload it?? Help much appreciated!!
Thanks a lot for the complete Mongomania. Will up all together soon. Will also do a LP rip of Mongo Magic, but I'm terribly busy at the moment, so please be a little patient. Thanks a lot anonymous, looking forward to "Mongo Magic" whenever you can get to it :.
Also the scans of Mongo Magic LP cover are included - labels and bag will follow as long as somebody is interested in this work. Please give me some feedback cheers. Thanks for your time and efforts on the scans anonymous - they look good!
Naturally looking forward to hearing "Mongo Magic" when you have the time to upload : I'll do a special post when you manage to do that. Would also like to credit it to you, so perhaps think about making up an online name for yourself : Thanks again for your work, Simon. Hello, Mongo Santamaria's album called Magic is hardest to find.
