Lydia Mendoza “Malaguena Salerosa”
from La Gloria de Texas (Arhoolie 1993) —One of the most beautiful voices....most of this album was recorded in Lydia's kitchen the afternoon right after an early gig, with Lydia playing 12-string guitar and singing. NO autotune, NO overdubs. SOUL music, babies.
Cimarron “Tierra Negra (Black Land)”
from ¡Cimarrón! Joropo Music from the Plains of Colombia (Smithsonian Folkways Recordings 2011) —I love this stuff. It's nothing but Colombian soul music, ya know? Very powerful music.
Chavela Ortiz and Brown Express “Besos Y Copas”
from Brazos Films Presents Chulas Fronteras and Del Mero Corazon (Arhoolie 1995) —Chavela was one of the few women fronting a conjunto band AND playing accordian. Sadly, she passed away at 40 due to a horse riding accident..
Martha & The Vandellas “Nowhere To Run”
from Hitsville USA, Vol. 1: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971 (Motown Record Company 2009)
