    Always good to see "Exciting sounds" - one of my first site-related pulls.

      I'm regretting passing up his "Solid Rockin' Brass" last year...

        I moved it on. Too punchy.

          Here's another one to look out for - Anita's very odd version of "watermelon man"

            I was already keeping my eye for that one. I think I've had a couple of 45s of hers that weren't so memorable. Also I realise now I thought she was American and had got her confused with Anita Kerr who had a vocal group on various US easy records and the Rod McKuen ones

              Icesa Le Brinda Lo Bueno - Ecuadorian hi-fi promo record - A-side has a bad poppy jingle and a long latin disco number, but the B-side is all "proper" latin from a quick skip through - half decent sounding cumbia by a group called Los Profetas and a few in another style I don't recognise yet
              Los Profetas might be Jaime Gale's group, who did one interesting lp for Fuentes before he became a bolero crooner.
              Ecuadorian records still seem to be much more under the radio than Colombian or Peruvian stuff.

                thanks, very possible. It didn't have an inner sleeve so I need to give it a bit of a clean first and then have a closer listen...

                  the ICESA hifi itself looks pretty cheap - I think it's Japanese stuff made to be rebadged for local markets. Last year I got rid of an inherited unit almost identical to the one on the bottom left which was branded "Teleton" in Europe. (I never had the green satin trousers though)

                    I love Anita Harris.The first three LPs are pure magic. I'm just a sucker for her voice. Probably not going to suit the majority of listeners, though. I can't think of anyone else like her- a definite one-off. She was still a reasonably big star when I was younger. I've got a painting that once belonged to her- at least that's what the bloke who sold it to me said when I bought it about 30 years ago. I assumed he was telling the truth because I hadn't just told him I was a big Anita Harris fan, and it would have been a weird name to pull out of the air. I was buying it purely on it's similarity to the work of The Brotherhood of Ruralists and he said "I got that off Anita Harris'.

                        I visited a charity shop and brought home a few 45s. I bought the Rick James for the cover alone. Click image for larger version

                          Don't know their version, but Manolo Caracol's version of Niña del Fuego is a key element of Magical Girl, probably my favourite Spanish film of the decade.

                          Rumba Tres song has a video from 1974, with surrealist sliced-open snowmen. Probably another Valerio Lazarov spectacular.

                            love the snowmen video...

                            I found a Rumba Tres LP (from 1975 I think) the other day but it went straight back out, not sure I could deal with the combination of the vocals and funky early disco backing
